eyam hallOwned for over 300 years by the Wright family, and now leased from them by the National Trust, Eyam Hall is a delightful Jacobean Manor House.

john wrightEyam Hall was built by the father of John Wright, for his marriage, a few years after the plague that decimated the village and for which Eyam is so famous. 

The Wrights have worked hard to ensure that Eyam Hall retains its charm and period character.  Its kitchen looks today much as it would have looked in the 17th Century.  The Tapestry Room contains numerous fine works and the nursery shows a selection of toys dating as far back as the 1800's.  The magnificent walled garden is a beautiful example of a 17th Century garden. 

Rumour has it that Eyam Hall is haunted by the ghost of a young servant girl, who still answers the night bell!

Visit the house, gardens, craft centre, shop and licenced restaurant, or take part in the many and varied events and activities organised by the National Trust. Browse our events section for details.
