    “Stayed here with a friend for a mid week break to explore the surrounding area.”

    Being only the two of us, we had a bedroom and bathroom each, so plenty of space, but equally it would have catered for a family just as easily. We both felt the apartment was very well equipped even if we didn't have the need to use a lot of it. ...

    Being only the two of us, we had a bedroom and bathroom each, so plenty of space, but equally it would have catered for a family just as easily. We both felt the apartment was very well equipped even if we didn't have the need to use a lot of it. Whilst the bedrooms were fine for us, I'm not sure if they would be so comfortable for a tall person as they are in the eaves, as the pictures show. The shower room on the top floor makes good use of the space, but it would be tight for some. There is a comfy armchair situated on the landing outside, which makes a nice reading space, but with the glass in the shower room door only partly obscured and the chair looking in on the toilet the other side, I thought this a bit strange. However the bathroom on the second floor also has a toilet, blocked from view and overall looked more than adequate. The apartment is situated towards the western end of the village but not very far at all from the museum, craft centre, Eyam Hall (not open every day) nor the church and easy walking distance of the pub at the other end. Unexpectedly, we managed to fill a whole day visiting all of the aforementioned places and rounded this off with a circular walk before dinner in the pub. We found the people in the village very friendly and welcoming. Overall, we felt our visit here all too short (Monday - Friday) and would happily have stayed longer. The apartment was well situated for our trips out to Chatsworth, Bakewell, Buxton and the beautiful surrounding countryside (we did have some very sunny days!). It also has the advantage of guaranteed off street parking on your return to this lovely village. For us - a REALLY good find!

The property

This superb duplex apartment is set over the second and third floors of a former coaching inn, situated in Eyam, one of the best-preserved villages in the beautiful Peak District National Park.

This light, airy and spacious apartment provides an excellent base for a couple or family looking to explore this fabulous region.

Beautifully appointed throughout, on the third floor you will find two lovely bedrooms with views over the magnificent countryside, and a separate shower room.

Downstairs on the second floor, the rooms have been tastefully furnished with a lovely mix of contemporary and period features and the well-equipped kitchen with colourful, quirky tiling opens into the splendid dining area, where you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast or evening meal together.

There’s also a cosy sitting room on this floor, with comfortable sofas and log-effect fire, the perfect setting for enjoying the spectacular views of the village and rolling hills beyond, through the original arched windows.

Completing this floor is a family bathroom, where after a day walking or cycling, you can treat yourself to a long soak in the bath.

Just a short stroll from the property will take you to the centre of Eyam, known as the ‘Plague Village’, where you can learn all about the events which transpired when this terrible disease came from London in 1665, whilst also visiting some lovely shops and the local pub, along with an historic church, Eyam Museum and the splendid National Trust property Eyam Hall.

There are also many excellent walks available throughout the Peak District National Park, not to mention the picturesque market town of Bakewell and spa town of Buxton, offering lots of shopping and dining opportunities.

The historic houses of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall are also easily accessible by car, making this stylish apartment the perfect setting for a memorable holiday all through the year.

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.
