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.
