Welcome to our hostel

Have a fun stay in a folly and enjoy the variety of excellent walking available near YHA Eyam, on the boundary of the contrasting White and Dark Peak areas.

This captivating Victorian folly resembles a tiny turreted castle perched on the hillside overlooking historic Eyam. Two thirds of its population was wiped out during the Great Plague. Trace the tale as you wander around the village, or enjoy the excellent walking trails in the surrounding White and Dark Peak.

Delicious home-cooked meals are available at this fully licensed hostel. There is capacity for 60 guests and facilities include TV, self-catering kitchen and games room.

Self catering kitchen was really small and not practically designed. Luckily we could sit outside! A fridge with freezer would be good to ao to freeze cooling elements. If ever the hostel is redecorated, please skipp all carpets! Staff was very friendly, parking space provided which is great. Atmosphere was great like an old skool youth hostel.

Our room was difficult to access as it was at the top of a narrow winding staircase. It would have been difficult to leave in the event of fire and the windows and dooors to balconies were locked. Nice eating areas and cooking facilities. Wifi was not accesible in bedrooms.

would have liked some advance warning about the distance between public transport and the hostel - almost a mile, all up a steep hill, with 60lbs of baggage, at 9pm, for a 70 year old female.... No public telephone, no wifi, how do travelers access the outside world? As a Canadian, I was concerned about not letting anyone know I'd arrived safely.
