Eyam is in the heart of the Peak District National Park. It is a village with a fascinating history linked to the Great Plague of the 1600s. The village has a museum and hall dating back to the 1700s (now run by the National Trust). There are a number of gift shops and tea rooms in the village as well as a pub, grocery store and post office. Numerous hill walks are accessible from the village and surrounding countryside. Bakewell (famous for its puddings) and Chatsworth House, home of the Duke of Devonshire and film set for Pride and Prejudice and The Duchess are a 10 / 15 minute drive from Eyam. The caves at Castleton and Kinder Scout (the highest Peak in Derbyshire) are 20 / 30 minute drive.
The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.
There are a number of golf courses near to Eyam: the very picturesque course at Bakewell (10/15 minute drive from Eyam) and Sickleholme golf club at Bamford as well as courses in Chesterfield and Sheffield.

Paul is a retired teacher and now runs a small gardening business. Jill is still teaching in a Sheffield primary school. We both love the countryside where we live and cycle and walk as often as we can. We are hoping to visit our daughter in Australia this Christmas. She is homesick at the moment and cannot visit England as her Visa will not be sorted in time. Our two adult sons will be accompanying us so we can have a special family Christmas together:-) We are also looking to travel to Australia and New Zealand in the summer of 2019.
