Derbyshire’s Eyam Hall is one of the few surviving examples of an unadulterated Jacobean grit-stone manor house. Massive and imposing with peaked gables, and constructed perhaps with an eye to defence, Eyam is also warm and homely. The striking building is set among a picturesque town which has grown up around it and beyond that lies picturesque countryside for fans of the outdoors. The whole affair is well worth a visit for fans of the seventeenth century and the generally lovely.

You’ll find the shops and cafe open all year round with the exception of January as well as guided tours of the building. On these tours, facilitated by expert staff, visitors will be shown fascinating artefacts such as a magnificent old grand piano and seventeenth century dueling pistols and portraits.

Nearby, you’ll find Eyam Courtyard, which is formed from the old farm buildings adjacent to Eyam Hall in the town centre. Guests can explore the fascinating shops such as Ralph Weston and Luna Bespoke Jewelry, Eyam Book Barn and The Space yoga studios. and sample the culinary delights on offer at the Coolstone Restaurant and Cafe which is built in the former stables. There’s enough for a whole day out in this beautiful corner of Derbyshire.
