    “This was literally a last minute booking as our original holiday was cancelled by local lockdowns measures as we drove north the day before our holiday was to start!”

    Our contact with Sykes was very positive and we managed to get the property reserved and paid for in 23 minutes after our initial enquiry - fantastic service. At least we knew where we were going the next morning. Thank you! The property was superb in all aspects and we enjoyed visiting again an area we knew .

The property

Windy Ridge is a charming, whitewashed cottage, boasting a desirable location at the centre of the Peak District National Park, in the historic village of Eyam.

All on the ground floor, this holiday home is an ideal base for couples, friends or family in pursuit of a countryside escape, encompassed by natural beauty and a plethora of walking routes.

Moving up the stairs and into the hallway, make your way into the kitchen/diner and flick on the kettle before taking a seat to soak in your beautiful surroundings out the window; this room is sure to be the social hub of your holiday, with ample space and appliances for the chef of the group to prepare a celebratory meal, along with a large dining table to seat all guests where you can toast to your wonderful retreat, this room is the perfect place to host any celebration.

Move through the double doors and into the sitting room where you will find a gas fired woodburner effect stove inviting you in to snuggle down into one of the sofas with the Smart TV providing you with hours of entertainment when you're not out exploring.

You'll find three extremely bright and airy bedrooms to rest your head at the end of a fun-filled day; made up of a master king-size, boasting its own TV and en-suite shower room, this bed can also double up as a twin room, offering flexibility for a variety of group needs, alongside a double and a further twin room, providing a wonderful space for everyone to catch up with their rest.

Spend some time in the private garden in the mornings while the little ones play freely on the lawn, before packing up a picnic and heading out to explore the local area.

The village of Eyam, famed for the plague back in 1655, now offers picturesque scenery and a good host of amenities including a shop, pub and Post Office.

Further afield you can find Bakewell, known for its pudding and boasting plenty of historic excitement, or spend some time in the caverns of Castleton, with the mountain peak of Mam Tor on its doorstep, perfect for the avid adventure-seeker.

In easy reach by a scenic car journey you can also find Sheffield, ideal for a day of retail therapy followed by delicious food in the form of one of its many eateries.

Windy Ridge is the perfect property for a group seeking to explore the countryside of the Peak District and beyond.

About the location


Bakewell 7 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 (7 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.
