A lovely glamping option with peaceful surroundings, local amenities just down the road and everything you might need on hand.
This was our first experience of "glamping" (not as young as we were but always willing to try something new) and what an enjoyable experience it was. The hut is cosy and comfortable - the heater and wood burning stove ensure that you never feel cold - and the location is idyllic with views over the village and the hills beyond. Rachel made us feel very welcome and her breakfast hampers are excellent. The bathroom/kitchen facilities are great and only a short distance from the hut.
Eyam is a very interesting village and both the Hall and the museum which tells the story of the plague are well worth a visit. The Miners Arms in the village is a good place to eat and there are plenty of other pubs within easy reach.
A good centre for walking and sightseeing (would recommend a visit to Castleton) and an ideal place to spend a romantic getaway if you are looking for somewhere a little bit different from the usual. I think we will be going back.
The Hut Eyam was the perfect place for us to celebrate my birthday this year and we enjoyed our here so much. We arrived and we were welcomed into a clean and beautifully set up hut with fire wood, blankets, candles, comfy bed and amazing views.
Each Morning we received fresh cobs with local jams and butter, with yogurt and honey granola and tea or coffee and was delivered to our doorstep each morning at the time we wanted, the perfect way to start every morning.
In the days we wanted to have a relaxed time but still have days out so we went to local towns and villages near to look at the markets but also discovered and learned about Eyam and the history.
In the evenings most nights we walked to local pubs which Rachel recommended to us and they were really good We'd get back and light a fire outside in the fire pit, wrap up blankets and play the games that were in the hut. A beautiful way to spend an evening.
We will definitely be back soon! We loved every minute of our stay and we hope to make it a annual thing we do together.
Thank you so much for our lovely stay Rachel.

Very easy booking and payment process. Rachel was a friendly host and helpful with local places to visit/eat. The shepherd's hut was spotless and had everything we needed in a small space. I was surprised we had electricity and delighted there was no tv, making for a relaxing and tranquil break. We listened to the church bells through the open window on Weds night, reading our books and drinking a glass of wine! The Peak District was beautiful and plenty to keep us busy, just not enough time!
This part of the Derbyshire countryside is a world away from the hussle of life in the city of Sheffield our home town. The hut was so tranquil with Rachel thinking of everything you may need, even down to a torch and umberella, should you need to go out in the night. A lovely friendly welcome, but time on our own just to be and catch up on the Sunday papers! Breakfast was delicious and no hassle to cater for a Gluten free diet. Would definitely recommend x
