My husband and I attended a tour given by SIr Richard Fitzherbert on Tuesday, June 7th at Tissington Hall and I just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed it.
We both found it absolutely charming and delightful that the tour was given by Sir Richard himself. I wonder if there isn't a HUGE opportunity with American visitors... We live in the greater NY area and have several friends (living in the city and under 40!) who view Downton Abbey as a religion and I feel like they would all have been in heaven at Tissington having tea and cake with the owner of the estate.
In fact, next year, I may try to bring some of them! (We come to the Peak District every year, we used to own a vacation home in Bakewell before we moved to the US -- I am American and my husband is British). Anyway, if you do ever start doing a B&B in the room that you current let out to brides on their wedding day do let us know. We'll be the first guests to sign up.
Also, best of luck to Sir Richard in the campaign for a car park (I am still horrified that you can't have one) and keep Tissington up for future generations. And thank you for the opportunity to view your beautiful Hall and home.
Warm Regards, Kate & Richard Woods
Feedback From Glenfield Group - June 2016
Dear Sir Richard,
Just a line to thank you for showing our members your delightful home on Wednesday.
Despite the worst the weather could throw at us it didn't spoil the day.
All the members went away saying they had really enjoyed the visit (and some wet weather retail therapy in Ashbourne prior to the visit helped!).
I am sure some of us will return later in the year for your 'Tales of Enchantment'.
Attached are some of the photographs I (and you) took on the day, which are now on the 'events' page of our website.
Glenfield U3A - June 2016
Dear Sir Richard,
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed our recent trip with other members of the Glenfield U3a the other week. I have been to many stately homes but can't remember much about any of them but your talk and tour brought your home to life and thus made it easier to recall all that we saw. .

"Tissington village is really lovely. It's got a village pond with crazy wandering ducks, a olde worlde sweet & antique shop & a superb butchers amongst others. The Hall is beautiful & you can potter around the village, visit the Hall or go on the Tissington trail. Well worth a visit if you are in the Buxton area."
