Description from owner

Description

Silk Cottage is situated on the edge of Eyam, commonly known as The Plague Village. The cottage is a lovely retreat, somewhere to get away from the stresses of life. Whether you want to enjoy the many physical activities available to you within the Peak District, or to just sit and relax looking out onto open countryside... Silk Cottage is perfectly located.

Detached, and with it's own parking space to the rear, the cottage was formally part of an old silk mill built in 1735, and is now converted into a well appointed cottage sleeping two people. The mill was where Ralph Wain discovered how to weave silk on both sides in 1785. In the apex of one of the walls is a pigeon loft which was used by carrier pigeons to send messages to suppliers of silk in Macclesfield.

The cottage looks out up to Eyam Edge - the dividing line between the White and Dark Peak areas - making it an ideal base to explore the entire Peak District. To the rear, up Tideswell Lane, are gentle walks with paths over small walled fields.

Whatever your reason for visiting the Peak District, Silk Cottage provides you with homely, well appointed accommodation, in a picturesque setting.

AS OF DECEMBER 2012, WE ARE PLEASED TO CONFIRM THAT THE COTTAGE NOW HAS FREE WI-FI FOR OUR GUESTS.

“Perfect for 2”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2017

A lovely cottage in the centre of the village with everything you need. No need to use the car as there are plenty of walks close by.

“Loved it!”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

Situated in a beautiful village this cottage was perfect. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen usable and the gas heater was fantastic. Parking was a little bit tight, we had a medium sized car and it fit in fine, but having a friend to help direct you into the spot is a good idea!

“Good to be back”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2012

Good to be back at the cottage - 5th year running and already booked for next year, Warm, cosy and relaxing. Everything at the cottage is thought of which makes your stay relaxing, It really is home from home. Great location, with great local attractions.

“Another fantastic visit to Silk Cottage”

Reviewed 6 May 2012

We had a lovely weekend in Eyam, the cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. The scenery was breathtaking and even though the weather wasn't perfect the cottage was always welcoming when we came home.
