We really enjoyed our stay at the Shippon. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. Ricky and Chris are great hosts. Eyam is a great base for exploring the beautiful Peak District and there are loads of amazing walks from the doorstep.

We stayed for a week over the New Year. Although it rained a lot we were happy just to potter about. We visited Buxton and Chatsworth and rest of the time we went around Eyam itself. An excellent, restful stay.
