Jay's Nest description

Holiday home
Jay's Nest is a lovely first and second floor apartment situated in the village of Eyam, just seven miles from Bakewell in the Peak District National Park. The apartment sleeps four people in one double bedroom with en-suite and one twin bedroom, together with family bathroom. Also in the cottage is an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is off road parking for one car. Jay's Nest is in a delightful location to explore this lovely part of the country, with plenty to see and do within reach.

Eyam is one of the best-preserved villages in the Peak District National Park, nestled at the foot of Sir William Hill, 800ft above sea level and is surrounded by the most glorious countryside. Historically the village is known as the famous 'plague village', as it went into voluntary quarantine when the plague was imported from London in 1665 and thus prevented the spread of the disease. There are many fine old houses in Eyam, and parts of the village have been kept as they looked several centuries ago, such as Eyam Hall (National Trust), a beautiful 17th century manor house with delightful gardens, craft shops and tea rooms.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Electric heating. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, Smart TV with FreeSat, Blu-ray, WiFi, selection of books and DVDs. Power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 1 car. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop and pub 2 mins walk.

The common area of stairs and halls were very dirty until I e-mailed the owner.. Car parking is cramped and likely to cause damage to car doors. Disapointed not to have outside table/chairs in the event of nice weather. Advertising under 'cottages' gives wrong impression. Owner giving threatening notice of payment for lost keys.

Great location in village with a pub and 2 cafe's.. Lots of walks on the doorstep and you could spend half a day of visiting the village's museum and local history sites. Well equipped apartment and comfortable.

Great central location in the village of Eyam with an off road reserved parking space.. The pre-arrival instructions were very clear, particularly with regard to obtaining and using the keys. You entered via a communal outer door and climbed one flight of stairs to the apartment entrance. There were two properties on this level, Jay's Nest being the first (number 2) and one further along the landing. A nice entrance hall inside leading into an open plan area containing the kitchen, lounge and dining. It was very modern, clean and well appointed. There were numerous books, a few games and puzzles and lovely big TV (for a change as many cottages often only seem to offer small ones). Upstairs had two bedrooms, one double en-suite and the other a twin. Separate bathroom. Storage heaters were adequate for our stay and could even be adjusted as needed (or not). As it was Xmas week the owner even put up a small tree and other seasonal items which was thoughtful. We could not have asked for a more cosy place and the reclining sofas were a real treat after a good days walk. We managed three walks straight from the door meaning we did not use the car at all during our 4 night stay (although it looked like they had a good bus service should we have needed it). Overall very impressed and would recommend as a good base, not just for seeing Eyam (there is lots to do) but also the surrounding area.

We found that Jay's Nest was conveniently placed in the friendly village of Eyam .. Previous guest's commented that the accommodation felt like home from home and those were our feelings also. We had the use of a modern well equipped kitchen area and comfortable seating to relax in front of the smart T.V. It is good for visiting towns and villages locally and great if you like putting on walking boots and getting out in the countryside.

Jay's nest was an excellent base located in the centre of Eyam for exploring the Peak district and very comfortable home for our stay.. It combined being in a traditional building style with the modern benefits of an en suite as well as family bathroom and off road parking plus a lovely well equiped kitchen/dining/living room.

We stayed at Jay's Nest for a weekend (Friday - Sunday). It was really comfortable and had everything we needed (aside from the usual consumables). The towels and bed linen were clean and soft. It was easy to follow the instructions to get access. There was a pub a short (3-4 minutes) walk away which is handy if you arrive later in the day and need a bite to eat (we didn't eat there but went there for a drink and it was very welcoming). I'd definitely return to Jay's Nest again for a visit to the Peak District.

A very pleasant flat nicely located in the small village of Eyam.. On site parking, free wifi, smartTV, good selection of dvds and books as well as a variety of leaflets for things to do in the surrounding area. Good water pressure in both showers, beds that we found comfortable (firm matresses). Modern kitchen and appliances with a 'welcome' pint of milk in the fridge. Tea/coffee/sugar available, as well as all the kitchen utensils we needed during our stay. (No plastic plastic plates/cups/bowls/cutlery for small children, so we brought our own.) There were no dishwasher tablets or spare toilet rolls, which I brought to the attention of the owner, so this hopefully wont be an issue for future visitors.

A wonderful place to stay with everything we needed.. Lots of great walks from the doorstep and just 2 minutes walk to the local amenities, shop, tea rooms and pub, 5 minutes to the museum and craft centre. Bakewell and Chatsworth are both just a short drive away and made for fabulous days out. Everyone seemed friendly and welcoming. Had no issues with the keys or locks, instructions were sent in advance and were easy to follow. Well worth a visit, would love to return in the summer.

This is a nice warm and very very clean . Lots of nice fluffy towels and really well equipped with full size fridge freezer dishwasher (which we did not use) and washing machine. Good quality pans ect .No welcome pack but teabags coffee and a pint of milk was helpful.Also more teatowels would be good for people like us who ate main meals out so was not worth putting dishwasher on. We did have a problem with apartment door lock,which a kindly niebour helped us with,and have made owner aware so think this will not be a issue in future.

Nice place very clean and warm,but problems with door lock (we had to get a stranger to help up to get in) and a problem with bedroom blind (it took ages to open and close) would stop us renting property again.. Did make owner aware of problems.
