...majestic manor house
Welcome to Eyam Hall, the historic Derbyshire home of the Wright family...
At the heart of the 'Plague Village' of Eyam, lies Eyam Hall. An imposing manor house, it is still very much a family home and visitors will appreciate the welcoming and homely atmosphere -scattered among the antiques and fine china, they are likely to see the belongings of the present family!
The house was built in the 17th century with profits from the local lead mining industry. Over the centuries succeeding generations have added to the contents so that now the house is a treasure trove of every type of artefact.
A fascinating feature is the tapestry room, where sections of tapestry have been cut up and nailed to the wall, like wallpaper. The old kitchen can still be seen in all its glory with a magnificent fireplace and numerous old domestic items.
The historic farmyard now houses a craft centre where visitors can watch craftspeople at work and purchase authentic local products. Also here, right next to the house, is the newly expanded Buttery offering cakes and light lunches and open to visitors to the house and others.
