Eyam tea rooms and B&B visit February 2015

We arrived as a couple for a 2 night stay. We received a warm welcome from Fiona and Fran in the cafe itself, which has a lovely soothing ambience. The cakes we hastily consumed were tasty and fresh and were locally produced as most of the produce seemed to be. The customers present at the time were a nice cross section of visitors and amiable locals, who all appeared happy to be there. The premises are spotless and the toilets freshly provisioned. Try the local Hope Valley ice cream as a special treat.

We were then escorted upstairs to the B & B which is self contained with its own external door. The en suite is tasteful and the shower unit comfortably sized for a tall guy like me. The bed/mattress was very comfortable and new. Any requests were quickly met with a smile from our hosts. There is access to the hosts own flat on the same first floor with a lovely lounge and proper fire. Nothing was ever too much trouble and I was staggered to find out that they had only taken over the premises last November, they seem to be part of the scenery already in Eyam and walk their dog Harry locally. Consequently they give good advice re the stunning local scenery and walks, as well as the famous local Plague history.

The village itself is well-provisioned and the local pub the Miners Arms is directly opposite the tea rooms and provide fine cuisine at night.

All in all, no problems of any kind. A beautiful area with an immaculately – run premises and. A genuinely warm welcome. Many thanks to Fiona and Fran and we will be returning here again.
