Eyam Hall

Eyam Hall

Eyam Hall is a Jacobean style manor house in Eyam in Derbyshire which is run by the National Trust.


The Wright family were landowners in Eyam although the family was based in Longstone. William Wright gave his land in Eyam to his second son Thomas who is credited with building the hall. John Wright who was Thomas's son sold his fathers house in Unthank and based his branch of the family in Eyam.[1] The hall began life as a generous wedding present in 1671 for John Wright and his new wife Elizabeth. It has been in the Wright family for nine generations (in 2013) and its last use was as a wedding venue. The house is still owned by descendants of the original owners and it is the first house that has been leased rather than given to the National Trust.[2] The historic house is situated in picturesque part of Derbyshire and is an unspoilt example of a gritstone Jacobean manor house.[3] The National Trust opened the hall and garden to the public in March 2013.[4]

General information

The Hall and garden are open from March to November from Wednesday to Sundays but inclusive of Bank Holiday Mondays. The shops and cafe are open all year round from 10 - 4.30 p.m. Eyam Hall is a Grade II* listed building.[3]
