The Heart of England/Peak District
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...

"beautiful cottage with all home comforts, hope to go again soon!"
We have just come back from a long weekend break at the Causeway cottage in Eyam, and this has to be the best cottage we have ever stayed in. The cottage is beautifully decorated, complete with all home comforts, and has a lovely homely feel to it. We were unlucky enough to have awful weather, but that did mean it was ideal weather to light the wood burning stove! We even found the cottage suitable for our 16 month old daughter, who absolutely loved exploring her new environment, and the owners provided a travel cot and highchair so we didnt' need to worry about bringing those ourselves. The village setting was perfect, and it was fascinating to hear about the history of the village, as were unaware that it was a village struck by the plague until we arrived. There are plenty of information signs on properties all round the village and there was a book int he cottage that you could read at your leisure. You are quite close to many places, so no long travelling required for days out, Bakewell was beautiful and quaint, and only 10 to 15 mins away. There are so many things to visit nearby, including Castleton with it's Blue John caves and mines, the Peak railway, and Chatsworth of course which is only 4 or 5 miles from Eyam. All in all this was a lovely weekend away, and we would defintiely recommend the cottage and location to others, compliments to the owners for a wonderful property. Hopefully we will be lucky enough to visit it again soon, and maybe next time have slightly better weather!

"A great deal of thought has gone into this lovely cottage."
This cottage is beautiful. It has been refurbished to a very high standard. And a great deal of thought has obviously been in to making a very comfortable and well equipped holiday home. The beds and seating are extremely comfortable. And the kitchen has everything one could need.
It is perfectly placed in the village. Very close to a pub that serves excellent food with a huge choice. It is also very near to a tearoom and the local shop.
