Just back from our stay here for Easter Weekend. Ricky and Chris clearly love the area and enjoy having people to stay at the cottage (which they renovated themselves), very friendly, helpful and welcoming without being intrusive, just what us Brits like in a host! The cottage is perfectly equipped (with fresh eggs from the resident bantams!), spacious but cosy with a lovely tub to soak in....and it's quiet even though it's in the village. Eyam is a central location for getting places in the Peaks, I'd recommend Curbar Gap, Monsal Head and Chatsworth House and Eyam village itself is steeped in plague history. Don't be put off by the people who look like professional walkers, there are amazing views and things to see without having to bust a lung! And Ricky's pub recommendations all had great food, and in the case of The Barrel Inn at Bretton, with amazing views as well. Highly recommended :)

we arrived on a saturday afternoon by bus 66 (from chesterfield rail station) and chris was there to welcome us and show us the way to the cottage. we were pleasantly surprised by the lovely feel of the shippon. the cottage was as depicted in the photos, providing a very homely and welcoming feel. the kitchen was well-equipped and amenities were well provided for. rick's recommendation for the bull's head inn was spot on, one of the best sunday roasts we have ever tried! (careful though it is an half an hour walk uphill, but the food was still worth it). the bed and mattress was extremely comfortable and we indulged ourselves to sleep in on sunday. all in all, it was a very lovely and relaxing weekend getaway, and we would definitely stay here again if we were to return to peak district. access to bakewell was convenient (by bus 275).

“Tastefully restored period cottage in the lovely and historic village of Eyam”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We went on a short stay, which left a lasting impression, and a feeling that we would love to return to this cottage and village - next time for a longer stay!
Everything was just as you imagine a cottage should be - warm, cosy and inviting, almost transporting you back to times gone by. The pictures on the website tells the story, just as good if not better in the flesh. Add to this the snow which had recently fallen, the cottage and village were pretty as a picture!
The character of the cottage has been preserved during restoration, and it is clear that the owners, Ricky & Christine take a great pride. Little touches like eggs and milk left waiting for us, coupled with a very warm welcome throughout our visit. The internet connection worked fine for me too.
Such a quiet and friendly village, and what a peaceful time we had in the cottage situate in the heart of the lovely village of Eyam. The village itself has lots to see, pleasing to stroll around and to soak in the atmosphere of this historic village, which appears very much alive and thriving. It is also a perfect springboard for many other equally picturesque villages and scenic walks and views of the Peaks.
Last but not least, we had several pleasant trips to local hostelries recommended by the proprietors, each of which gave us a warm welcome, and great cuisine. All in all a very pleasing experience, which we intend to repeat!

Tasteful decorated, beautifully refurbished 1 bed cottage.
Set in a village with an interesting history, within the Peak District.
Local shops can be reached on foot.
Some really good pubs are close (2-3 miles). Didn't have time to check the ones in the village.
The owners were very welcoming and live next door. They can't do enough to help you.
Excellent information on local area attractions.
WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK
