YHA Eyam (Beech Hurst) is a Victorian folly resembling a tiny turreted castle perched on the hillside above the historic village of Eyam.
The house was built in 1887 – the Golden Jubilee year of Queen Victoria and it became a youth hostel in 1972 after several changes in ownership.
Eyam is situated in the beautiful Peak District with access to loads of stunning walks. It is, of course the famous Plague Village where three quarters of the population died of the Bubonic Plague as a result of their selfless quarantining of themselves thus containing the epidemic. You can explore the village either on your own or using our specially written trail to take in all the memorable sites. There are numerous tea-rooms and one pub for your refreshment stops !
A cycling route on the Monsal Trail is just 4 miles away, the historic town of Bakewell and its famous pudding is 6 miles away and the amazing and very unique Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both just 8 miles away.
Volunteering with YHA is a fantastic way to have fun, learn new skills, boost your CV and travel to different places. We have a variety of different opportunities to choose from and volunteering roles to suit everyone.
The tasks are varied and in return you will meet some great people, who both work and stay in our hostels, as well as enjoying your time off discovering the local area and attractions.
