Bakewell 5 miles; Tideswell 5 miles.
Eyam is one of the best-preserved villages in the Peak District National Park, nestled at the foot of Sir William Hill, 800ft above sea level and is surrounded by the most glorious countryside. Historically the village is known as the famous 'plague village', as it went into voluntary quarantine when the plague was imported from London in 1665 and thus prevented the spread of the disease. There are many fine old houses in Eyam, and parts of the village have been kept as they looked several centuries ago, such as Eyam Hall, a beautiful 17th century manor house with delightful gardens, craft shops and tea rooms. Above the village lies Eyam Moor, a fine area for walking, with fantastic views across the Derwent Valley, with its many Bronze Age remains and monuments. Visit Bakewell (5 miles) a picturesque market town which holds a livestock market every Monday and the home of the world famous Bakewell Pudding. Explore the mysterious caverns of Castleton, the elegant spa town of Buxton or enjoy the many stately homes on offer including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, to mention a few. With Alton Towers, Britain's premier theme park, only a short drive away, this is an ideal base for all the family.

Previous visitors' comments about Mompesson Cottage:
We had a very relaxing break in a gorgeous village steeped in history about the plague, it just ended too early which is why we have booked again to go back next year.
Mrs Byrne, Wickford, January 2013
We had a very enjoyable break in a lovely cottage. The area was beautiful. The local pub The Miners Arms was friendly and the food and staff excellent.
Mrs Edgerley, Romsey, December 2012
The cottage is ideally situated in the village close to shops and pub and bus stops.
Mr Turner, Kettering, October 2012
The location of the cottage was really good as it was close to restaurants, local shops and local villages. Bakewell and Chatsworth were only a ten minute drive away. The living room space made it nice for the whole family to spend time together.
