About the location

FOOLOW

Eyam 2 miles.

Foolow is a delightful little village just 2 miles from the "Plague Village" of Eyam. With stone built cottages around the village green and duck pond the village is a haven from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Foolow boasts a fantastic pub serving food and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. Nearby Eyam is one of the best-preserved villages in the Peak District National Park, nestled at the foot of Sir William Hill. 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 at Chatsworth, 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.
