Description of the cottage

Silk Cottage is situated on the edge of Eyam, commonly known as The Plague Village. The cottage is a lovely retreat, somewhere to get away from the stresses of life. Whether you want to enjoy the many physical activities available to you within the Peak District, or to just sit and relax looking out onto open countryside... Silk Cottage is perfectly located.

Detached, and with it's own parking space to the rear, the cottage was formally part of an old silk mill built in 1735, and is now converted into a well appointed cottage sleeping two people. The mill was where Ralph Wain discovered how to weave silk on both sides in 1785. In the apex of one of the walls is a pigeon loft which was used by carrier pigeons to send messages to suppliers of silk in Macclesfield.

The cottage looks out up to Eyam Edge - the dividing line between the White and Dark Peak areas - making it an ideal base to explore the entire Peak District. To the rear, up Tideswell Lane, are gentle walks with paths over small walled fields.

Whatever your reason for visiting the Peak District, Silk Cottage provides you with homely, well appointed accommodation, in a picturesque setting.


On the ground floor is the kitchen/dining room and a bathroom. The bathroom contains a spa bath, with a power shower over the bath.

On the first floor is a lounge/bedroom, thoughtfully laid out so that you can sit on the sofa and look up to Eyam Edge.

The living are is well equipped with flatscreen TV with Freesat channels, large DVD library, stereo and Ipod dock/speaker. A well stocked library, including many local walking books and OS maps for both the White and Dark Peaks, so no need to buy your own. we also have Wifi, if you need to keep in contact with the outside world during your stay.
