Located a few miles north of Ashbourne, Tissington Hall is home to Sir Richard Fitzherbert. Our balloon rides start from Sir Richard's land at the edge of this picturesque village, close to Dovedale and Ilam.

Tissington Village is an attraction in itself, with its timeless beauty, wonderful Hall, church, 'Herberts' tea rooms, duck pond and a small number of high quality independent shops. Also famous for its Well Dressings, this is one of our favourite places in the whole of Derbyshire!

Close to Tissington village you will find many famous local attractions. Just to the west lies the dramatic scenery of Dovedale, a deep gorge through which the river Dove has carved its route, and along which millions of walkers have trodden a path. Climb Thorpe Cloud for some great views - but not as good as you'll see on your hot air balloon ride!

The Serene Beauty of the Ashbourne Countryside

As the hot air balloon gently lifts off the ground, I am greeted by the serene beauty of the Ashbourne countryside unfolding beneath me. The patchwork fields stretch out as far as the eye can see, adorned with hedgerows and dotted with grazing sheep. The early morning sun casts a warm glow over the landscape, painting the rolling hills in shades of gold and green.

As we float gracefully over the charming town of Ashbourne, I am captivated by the sight of Tissington Hall emerging on the horizon. Nestled amidst lush gardens and ancient woodlands, the hall stands as a stately reminder of a bygone era. Its elegant façade, adorned with mullioned windows and ivy-covered walls, exudes an air of timeless grandeur.

From above, I can see the meticulously manicured gardens surrounding Tissington Hall, with neatly trimmed hedges and colourful flower beds adding to the hall's enchanting charm. A tranquil lake glistens in the morning light, reflecting the azure sky overhead and providing a haven for wildlife.

As the balloon drifts closer to Tissington Hall, I am overcome by a sense of awe and reverence for the history and heritage that permeates this majestic estate. The centuries-old trees whisper secrets of times gone by, while the ancient stone walls echo with the laughter of generations past.

As we pass over Tissington Hall, I feel a deep sense of gratitude for this opportunity to witness its beauty from such a unique perspective. The tranquillity of the countryside and the majesty of the hall combine to create a moment of pure magic, one that will stay with me long after the balloon touches down.

In this fleeting moment suspended between earth and sky, I am reminded of the timeless allure of exploration and discovery. The world below unfolds in all its splendour, inviting me to embrace the wonder and beauty that surrounds us. And as the balloon continues its journey, I carry with me the memories of this extraordinary experience, forever etched in my heart.
