The Heart of England/Peak District
The area around Eyam is full of interesting sights, breathtaking scenery and excellent opportunities for all types of outdoor activities.
The village is closely located to the famous market town of Bakewell and the castle and caves of Castleton, the magnificent architecture of Chatsworth House and fine dining at Hassop Hall are all located within 5 miles of the village.
Also close at hand are the historic houses of Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, while the historic spa town and festival centre of Buxton is about 12 miles away.
The local opportunities for walking are excellent, with numerous walks from the door to local areas such as Eyam Moor and Bretton Clough. Further afield, Edale and Dovedale are just a short drive away.
The Peak District is one of the England's main areas for rock climbing, with thousands of climbs on the local gritstone edges and limestone cliffs. Hang gliding and para-gliding are also popular local sports.
The Peak District is easily reachable from the cities of Sheffield, Manchester, Derby, Nottingham and Stoke-on-Trent - being normally less than an hour's drive from each.
Situated near the heart of the Peak District, five miles from Bakewell and less than 20 miles from Sheffield, Eyam is famous as the village which went into voluntary quarantine in 1665-6 when the Plague was brought there from London.
More than half of the population of the village died of the Plague, but because of the villagers' act of self-sacrifice the Plague did not spread further.
The modern village contains numerous reminders of the Plague years - graves from the period are all around the village, the houses of several people important from this era have information boards on them, the church contains numerous relics of the period, and there is a small museum.
The village also has several historic houses - notably Eyam Hall, a fine Jacobean mansion which is now is home to a craft centre. There are also village stocks, the remains of the Elizabethan water system and a magnificent 8th century Saxon Cross in the churchyard.
Local facilities include an excellent pub/restaurant, the Miners Arms. The village store is located 300 yds away.
Eyam is superbly located for breathtaking scenery with walks over Eyam Moor and the surrounding Peak District.

"A delightful cottage in the heart of Eyam"
The cottage was clean and very handy for the village of Eyam as well as numerous attractions in the area. The parking was adequate for one car. The welcome basket was a lovely idea and really made us feel thought of. The owner was more then helpful regarding arranging the holiday and obtaining the key code. We had a lovely holiday in a equipped cottage. Comfy bed and sofa!

"Gorgeous cottage, very interesting village"
I want this cottage! Beautifully furnished, perfect location, easy friendly to book. We booked last minute and took pot luck with both accommodation and the village of choice in the peaks but I don't think we could have done better if we had spent months researching. Very comfortable and a really amazing and interesting village of eyam. A perfect spot for touring the peaks.
