Holiday Cottages In Eyam

Eyam, which also goes by the infamous title of The Plague Village, is credited with being the most visited village in the Peak District. Back in 1665 when bubonic plague wreaked havoc here, the brave and selfless villagers went into voluntary isolation to try and stop the terrible disease spreading. Their valiant story has not been forgotten and is evident throughout the village by plaques, place names and a visit to the Eyam Museum.
Dotted around the village are several 17th century cottages which have survived since the time of the plague, and have little notices outside detailing who lived there at the time. Beck Cottage which is one of the holiday cottages in Eyam was a plague cottage and home to the village baker.
Should your stay at a holiday cottage in Eyam coincide with Carnival Week in late August, you will be in for a treat, as the whole village comes alive with fun, merriment, entertainment and a sheep roast!
Some holiday cottages in Eyam have traditional names such as Croft View Cottage, but The Pinfold Bard and The Captains House which form part of Dalehead Court Country Holidays are holiday cottages in Eyam with a difference.
Not only is Eyam steeped in history, but for a relatively small village it contains lots of places to visit and some lovely tea rooms. If you stay at a holiday cottage in Eyam, try to find the time to visit Eyam Hall and its courtyard craft centre where children can enjoy ‘painting a plate’!
A short walk up the hill from your holiday cottage in Eyam will take you to the moors which are carpeted in purple when the heather is in flower. From there, a wander down into Bretton Clough or across to Abney can be a wonderful walk on a sunny day.
