“Butlers Retreat was the perfect hideaway that we wanted for our mini break in the Peaks. It is a stunning house, beautifully decorated and immaculately presented. The space was warm, cosy and comfortable with everything we needed. Sir Richard was a great host and always prompt with the communication when booking and ahead of our arrival. If we are in the area in the future we would definitely choose to stay here again”

“I booked a night away here for my parents as a birthday present - they were signing its praises. A lovely location with superb accomodation. They said they'd love to head back again!

Thanks for your help and communication with my parents - they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks, Catherine”

“This apartment is outstanding in every way - quality of furnishings, comfort of the bed, stylish decor and immaculate cleanliness. A warm and helpful welcome from Elaine. We are sat at the Duncombe Arms as recommended by another visitor. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent there. A secluded haven and we would definately return as one night is just not enough as others have said.

A wonderful stay. We felt so comfortable and cosy in this outstanding accommodation and picturesque location. Size of apartment was exceptional. Thank you Sir Richard”

“Wow what a wonderful place to stay. We knew when we booked that it was going to be a nice experience, but our expectations were far exceeded. This is a really top class place to stay. Sir Richard was very welcoming and provided some wonderful tips for the local area. The place is very well decorated and clean, we wished we could have stayed a lot longer. The location is perfect, you can walk down the road to the tea rooms, couple incredible gastro pubs short drive away and everything the peak district has to offer is right on your door step. Don't hesitate to book. Just incredible

Thanks Sir Richard we had a wonderful stay. Wish we could have stayed longer!”

“Tissington is a hidden gem, a beautiful village in a picturesque countryside. Butlers retreat itself was beautifully decorated, a country house style but felt modern and light. A very comfortable bed and a lovely basic selection of breakfast foods, leaving milk was a nice touch! A lot of places to explore, both within the quaint village itself (a visit to the tea rooms and sweet shop are a must) but also the surrounding countryside, national parks, stately homes and towns. Lots of lovely pubs and restaurants, would highly recommend the duncombe arms, truly delicious food. A lovely break away!

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay, and we adore your dogs! Thankyou so much for being such a wonderful host.” ”

“A great place to stay to relax and to explore the area. Sir Richard was very welcoming and we were able to visit the house and gardens which helped us appreciate the work the family are putting in to restore and maintain this beautiful estate.

Many thanks for your warm welcome and beautiful apartment. We had a wonderful relaxing break and will certainly recommend”

“A really lovely apartment in a very beautiful house and village. Tissington was great to wander around, the cafe just down the road was a bonus and the food good. Tissington Hall and gardens were amazing and there were walks from the door. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, all very neutral and stylish but with added quirky charm."

“This place is stunning. You stay within the park of the larger estate house in a totally private apartment suite that is as beautifully and thoughtfully appointed as anywhere I've ever stayed (grand hotels included). It's wonderful to have a space that includes a little kitchen and a little sitting room area, as well as the bathroom and bedroom. There were fixings for a continental breakfast in the kitchen. Everything is stunningly decorated, but in a really warm and inviting way. Because of our schedule, we didn't have the chance to meet Sir Richard or his wife, but he made arrangements for us to be shown to the apartment by a very kind woman from Herbert's Tea Room (which is a delightful place about a two minute walk from the suite, and where we made a stop before leaving town the next day—fantastic scones and cakes!). Everything felt absolutely luxurious, while also leaving you feeling totally authentically in the midst of this lovely tiny village. I only wish we had booked longer to spend at the Retreat and in this area more generally—it was a favorite part of this trip! We will surely be back."

“If you decide to book a stay at Tissington, you won't be disappointed! It has the perfect balance of relaxation and community spirit. I loved the range of different sites and businesses to explore. It is situated within a comfortable drive to both Ashbourne and Buxton. We stopped off at Bakewell on the way home too :-) Butlers Retreat itself is superb and refurbished to a very high standard. It was a fantastic mini break. ".

“We had the best experience staying at Butler's Retreat. Right from the the very start with the warm and enthusiastic welcome by our host Sir Richard FitzHerbert to the comfortable apartment in this historic home- this is one not to be missed. Sir Richard was generous with his time, proud to share his family's long history at Tissington and genuinely ensuring that you are made to feel welcome and comfortable staying in his family home. The buildings are glorious, the grounds and gardens serine and the village in enchanting. We had lunch and afternoon tea at Herbert's and highly recommend you this cafe. There are simply no negatives about this place and it's people. I encourage you to go and experience the quintessential English village. Only one regret - we didn't have more time to spend here".

“Amazing retreat! Absolutely loved staying here. The accommodation was luxurious and we were well looked after by Sir Richard. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to all my family and friends. Thank you for a great experience!".

“An amazing, clean and comfortable accommodation and surroundings away from the bustling city in a private village by itself that gave solace to us when we needed it most. Will highly recommend and will definitely return.
Thank you very much for providing us such a pleasant place to rest".

“We had a fabulous stay In the Butlers Suite, it was a real treat to stay somewhere so unique and special , only wish it had been for longer.
Tissington is a beautiful village and we will definitely be coming back with our friends and stay for longer next time.
Thank you for all recommendations regarding the pub and taxi, we eat at The George and food and service was fabulous. It was a wonderful way to spend my birthday and I haven’t stopped talking about it”

“The Butler's Retreat is a gem in the Peak District. Staying here is an unique experience for our trip in England. Although we arrived in a dark foggy evening on a mid-winter day, Sir Richard came to our rescue instantly and put us into the warm and cozy apartment. The interior, as shown in the photos, is stylishly decorated with nostalgic items as well as modern amenities. The little village itself is very quite in winter, i will definitely consider visiting again in the future”

“Our aim was to find the nicest place near Sheffield. And this is certainly the nicest place I've stayed in, I think Tissington hall was amazing, more than I'd hoped for”

“Fantastic place to stay in a great location, ideal for walking routes and cosy country pubs nearby. Very helpful and friendly host welcoming us to the Retreat and making sure we had everything we needed. The place was immaculately clean and had all we needed and more. I would definitely recommend a trip to the Butler's Retreat”

“Although we live only half an hour away, it feels like a world away. The Butlers Retreat is both beautiful and homely, we have been very comfortable and were provided with everything we needed.

Thank-you and we hope to be regular visitors if we can get in as we are sure you are going to be very busy.

P.S The Wifi was great which was a great help !”

“Charming and homely little apartment, tucked around the side of the beautiful Tissington Hall. The village itself was gorgeous, and everyone from Sir Richard to the staff in the local coffee shops were really welcoming and friendly. Would definitely stay there again!”

“The Butler's Retreat was a fantastic place to stay, providing great comfort in a well presented spacious apartment. Perfect for a quiet weekend getaway in a truly idyllic area of the Peak district.”

“The only way our stay in Tissington could have been any better was if we had been able to stay longer (but we were en route to a wedding). The location was beautiful, the butler's retreat was delightfully restored with all the modern comforts you would want, and Sir Richard was very welcoming. He recommended a lovely little pub a short drive away where we were able to have a simple candlelit dinner before returning for a great night's sleep. Most definitely a relaxing get-away. We would highly recommend staying longer to explore the surroundings more thoroughly, and indeed hope to be able to do so ourselves in the future.”

Butlers Retreat Trip Advisor Client Review - August 2016

We were delighted with our stay in The Butler's Retreat suite, which is part of the old servants' quarters at Tissington Hall.

The elegantly decorated suite comprises a lovely, spaceous bedroom with sitting area and very comfortable bed; a nicely appointed bathroom with bath and shower, and a cosy kitchen, suitable for continental style breakfasting.

The Butler's Retreat is very peaceful, and feels a bit special!

Tissington is the most gorgeous little estate village, with beautiful stone cottages, church, duck pond, and wells which are dressed during the summer (unfortunately, we missed this).

There is Herbert's Tearooms, a trekking centre, candle-maker, butcher, etc, all in the village, harking back to when the estate would have been thriving with artisans and activity. There are some nice local pubs, notably The Old Dog where we had a decent burger style meal and very good beer.

Local small towns are Ashbourne and Bakewell and there are lots of opportunities for walks. We stayed over a wet weekend, but managed to venture about 10 miles along the Tissington Trail , a former railway line, now a flat pathway through some very pretty Peak District scenery. We took a bus back to Tissington from Hartington village: The Peak District is so beautiful, and much less congested than the Lakes. We certainly hope to return soon.
