The Peak District is an area full of beautiful, inspiring and varied scenery. The blasted moors and steep heather-coated hills of the 'dark' peak in the north give way to a pastoral idyll of gently rolling green in the 'white' peak in the south. There are unexpected delights round every corner - deep hidden dales, dramatic cliffs or 'edges', eerie caves, picturesque rivers, charming little villages and cosy pubs with open fires.
Over 10 million people live within an hour of the Peak District and it is a very popular short break and day-trip destination. It caters for all active outdoor pursuits, from rock-climbing and mountain biking through to paragliding and caving. But it is best known as a destination for walkers, with a huge selection of routes to suit all ages and abilities. There are many other attractions: stately homes such as Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle; the bustling market town of Bakewell, famous for its tarts and puddings; the spa town of Buxton; Matlock Bath - also known as "Little Switzerland" - with its cable car rides and other family amusements. Close too is Alton Towers if a visit to a theme park is an essential part of your family holiday!
Eyam is well placed in the middle of the Peak District, close enough to all reach all the different areas with ease. It sits in a sheltered dip of hillside overlooking the Hope Valley. Famous to schoolchildren as the 'Plague Village', the stoicism and selflessness of the villagers who cut themselves off during an outbreak of the Black Death to avoid its spread to surrounding villages is rightly remembered and celebrated. Nowadays Eyam is a popular destination for walkers and cyclists, has a lively summer carnival, an old Hall run by the National Trust, a museum, local shops and cafes and an old pub, the Miners Arms, which is just a few yards from The Causeway cottage. Perfect for the active and not so active...
