The Heart of England/Peak District
The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.
The beautiful little village of Eyam lies at the foot of Sir William Hill and is amid some spectacular scenery. Eyam is steeped in history and is known as the â€˜plague village' because it went into voluntary quarantine to stop the spread of the plague when it arrived in the village in 1665 in a parcel of cloth. Eyam is a well preserved village, with it's fine houses and it looks much as it would have done several centuries ago. Eyam Hall is a 17th Century Manor House with enchanting gardens, and now home to craft shops and tea-rooms. Overlooking the village is Eyam Moor and there are some lovely walks with fabulous views. With many attractions nearby, Eyam makes a fantastic base for a family holiday.
