Why stay here ...
Bassettwood Farm is located in a very quiet area with lovely views on the edge of the picturesque village of Tissington, in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District. We have 2 hard standings in a separate area away from the main field in a small fenced off paddock. Tissington is close to the market towns of Ashbourne, Bakewell, the popular village of Alstonefield, Dovedale, Ilam, Milldale, Hartington, Carsington Water (ideal for fishing and sailing) and the Manifold Valley.
Lynn and Gavin welcome you to Bassettwood and guests are encouraged to enjoy the many scenic walks or the 20 mile long Tissington Trail for walking and cycling. Enjoy the peacefulness and see beautiful sunrises and amazing sunsets. B & B accommodation is available at Bassettwood Farm House and there is a tearoom open between 12:00 to 17:00 Friday - Sunday.
Bassettwood farm is an ideal base for a short break or longer holiday. The Historic market town of Ashbourne is only a 6 minute drive away. Tissington Hall is just a short stroll from the farm.
At Bassettwood we are involved in the design and creation of one of the wells for the annual Tissington well dressing which takes place for a week in May every year.
Tissington is one of the prettiest villages in this area of the Peak and is also a convenienct point of access to the Tissington Trail. It is therefore a popular place on a summer weekend.
The village lies just off the main Buxton-Ashbourne road and has been the estate village of the FitzHerbert family since the 1460s, whose hall erected in 1609, stands in the centre of the village. The village is delightfully laid out with plenty of space and buildings which were mostly erected in the early 19th century. It has an imposing southern approach via a grand gateway and an avenue of lime trees.
Tissington, based in the Peak District, Derbsyhire is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.
Tissington village is home to a wonderful range of shops and businesses which include a popular tea room, gift shop, traditional sweet shop, butchers and candle shop.
Nearby, within under an hour's drive you will find Haddon Hall, Ilam Hall, Chatsworth House, Sudbury Hall, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston Hall and the lovely, traditional market town of Bakewell, famed for its Bakewell Tart.
For the children (and adults!) Alton Towers, Carsington Water, Go Ape! and Gullivers Kingdom are all within easy reach by car.
If you love cycling there are miles and miles of traffic free and family cycle routes, noteably the Tissington Trail which can be found 2 minutes from the farm. Bicycles can be hired from Ashbourne Cycle Hire in the centre of the town.
