Eyam Hall settled against the beautiful walled garden.

Eyam Hall, built in 1671, is both welcoming and charming and gives a fascinating insight into the lives and characters who have shaped its history.

Home of the Wright family for eleven generations, it is an unspoilt example of a gritstone Jacobean manor house.
