“Lovely long weekend”

We had a lovely weekend at East View cottage in Eyam. The cottage was cosy and comfortable with lovely open fires and a wonderful kitchen. Jo was extremely helpful even picking us up and dropping us back off at the local train station. Highly recommend doing the walks around the village (information can be found in the shop at Eyam Hall) to get some of the history of the village.

“The perfect comfort & character cottage in the perfect village”
Reviewed 22 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My partner and I have stayed at East View several times over the years, this was the first time since new owners Jo and Matt took over. Before it was wonderful, full of character yet comfortable enough. Jo and Matt have completely changed the upstairs arrangement creating two sizable bedrooms where before there were three and removing the downstairs bathroom to create a large upstairs bathroom. The old bathroom is now a utility room keeping a downstairs toilet in place. What was really good before is now exceptional, Jo's love of conservation and eye for detail shine through. All of the old character is still there - the kitchen and living room were always wonderful - yet it's completely transformed into a luxurious experience.

We stayed with our dog Daisy and a friend from Sheffield popped over for a few days. Cooking was a delight, I want that cooker! A complete Sunday roast was made easy to do and wonderful to eat around that beautiful big kitchen table. Evenings were spent in front of a huge high quality TV, we didn't use the ifilm account but it's there with lots more if you need it. Having free Wifi was a definite plus with me uploading photos of our trip to Facebook at the end of each day.

Eyam

If you don't know Eyam you are in for a treat. This is my favourite village and if I could I would move there. It is stunningly beautiful without being twee or false in any way. It remains a working village and Jo and Matt's farm is all part of that. It's a very special place tucked away on a steep hill above Stoney Middleton (the 'Village' recently featured in a TV series), when you arrive drink in that steep climb, it sets you up to enter Eyam itself.

It has a wonderful convenience store. Do call in at least once to support this vital local business, and whilst you're there have a chat to the owners about the village - they are Eyam born and bred. The Miner's Arms is a proper pub with sound staff that keeps its beer very well indeed. If you want to eat there make sure you check beforehand when they serve food - this is a proper local, not a tourist artifice that serves food all day. The church needs at least two walks around its graveyard, one in daylight and one at night when its spotlit - not only is the celtic cross worth a view but the entire thing is a delight. The museum is not to be missed. A fantastic wealth of local history is laid out in an exciting way, and by heck does Eyam have stories to tell. I mention these as highlights, there is much more to explore in Eyam.

Out and about

Highly recommended are:

Bakewell, your nearest town. The river is lovely here and the bridge over it wonderful. Dog walkers buy copies of Peak District dog walking books at the Tourist Information Centre, you won't regret it I promise. Spend a good half a day in Bakewell, get your old original Bakewell Puddings and stop in at the New Close Farm Shop for meat products from an award winning family business that cares about animal welfare. Tons more to see, I'll stop there for now.

Monsal Head. The Monsal Trail is a good easy walk but, if you can handle a short very steep ascent at the end of your walk, much better is to park at Monsal Head, take in the truly breathing view down the valley, take the left hand side path down and follow the path along the river to the A6. Then turn around and come back but don't cross the river, keep going to just before the bridge then turn up to get onto the bridge and head back to the top. Now treat yourself to great beer and warming food at the fantastic Stables Bar.

The walks are many and varied, all are great. Padley Gorge, Froggatt and Baslow Edges... the list of local walks is endless.

If you fancy a walk a little further out, drive about an hour from Eyam to Back Forest in Staffordshire for The Roaches and amazing Lud's Church.

To sum up: You won't get better than a stay at East View in Eyam. We will be back again. And again. And again...

A very warm welcome and comfortable stay at east view. All minor hiccoughs were rectified by Jo immediately. The cottage was very comfortable..beds you didn't want to get out of!
Eyam is a lovely village to stay in and has a real sense of community not just a holiday stop over.

Beautiful, cosy and spotless cottage. Perfect location to explore the Peak District. Lovely village. We are very thankful to Joanna for being so friendly and kind and for showing our children her farm and letting them enjoy the animals and teach them so many things. It has been an unforgettable holiday.

“Lush countryside in a beautiful little cottage.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Beautiful little cottage with great hospitality from Jo (the owner who lives just a stone through away). On our arrival there was eggs and bread for the morning sourced locally. The cottage is baby and child friendly with stair gates across the cottage. Stayed for 4 nights and had the chance to light the fire with wood that was supplied. Great stay, highly recommended.
