    “Great central location in the village of Eyam with an off road reserved parking space.”

    The pre-arrival instructions were very clear, particularly with regard to obtaining and using the keys. You entered via a communal outer door and climbed one flight of stairs to the apartment entrance. There were two properties on this level, Jay's Nest being the first (number 2) and one further along the landing. A nice entrance hall inside leading into an open plan area containing the kitchen, lounge and dining. It was very modern, clean and well appointed. There were numerous books, a few ...

    The pre-arrival instructions were very clear, particularly with regard to obtaining and using the keys. You entered via a communal outer door and climbed one flight of stairs to the apartment entrance. There were two properties on this level, Jay's Nest being the first (number 2) and one further along the landing. A nice entrance hall inside leading into an open plan area containing the kitchen, lounge and dining. It was very modern, clean and well appointed. There were numerous books, a few games and puzzles and lovely big TV (for a change as many cottages often only seem to offer small ones). Upstairs had two bedrooms, one double en-suite and the other a twin. Separate bathroom. Storage heaters were adequate for our stay and could even be adjusted as needed (or not). As it was Xmas week the owner even put up a small tree and other seasonal items which was thoughtful. We could not have asked for a more cosy place and the reclining sofas were a real treat after a good days walk. We managed three walks straight from the door meaning we did not use the car at all during our 4 night stay (although it looked like they had a good bus service should we have needed it). Overall very impressed and would recommend as a good base, not just for seeing Eyam (there is lots to do) but also the surrounding area.

About the location

EYAM

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.
