    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Silk Cottage is situated on the edge of Eyam, commonly known as The Plague Village. The cottage is a lovely retreat, somewhere to get away from the stresses of life. Whether you want to enjoy the many physical activities available to you within the Peak District, or to just sit and relax looking out onto open countryside... Silk Cottage is perfectly located.

    Detached, and with it's own parking space to the rear, the cottage was formally part of an old silk mill built in 1735, and is now converted into a well appointed cottage sleeping two people. The mill was where Ralph Wain discovered how to weave silk on both sides in 1785. In the apex of one of the walls is a pigeon loft which was used by carrier pigeons to send messages to suppliers of silk in Macclesfield.

This cottage is equipped with absolutely everything you'll ever need. Whether it's for romance, walks or just chilling you can't go wrong, especially if you make use of the spa bath. The views from the windows are beautiful to wake up to, especially the lambs and horses. We loved the food at the local pub and we were made to... more

The cottage was tastefully and thoughtfully fitted out. We found the electronics a bit challenging, being low-tech types, and the wifi was hit and miss (not really a problem for us as there for other reasons). Only lacked (or couldn't find) a teatray and a dustpan and brush! The kitchen and bathroom could have been cleaner - and that comment... more

Management response:

As the guest noted, the bathroom is normally very clean, this is the first time we have had any negative comment in this regard, and we have mentioned it to the cleaner to ensure it does not happen again. Dust pan and brush is available in the cottage, in the cupboard under the stairs. more
