One of five cottages yet tucked away with its own private garden and parking with outstanding views, this retreat is the perfect place for a rural escape in a scenic and peaceful setting.

Quirky and characterful with beamed ceilings and impressive views across the valley, your homely abode sleeps four and is well-placed for adventure. Froghall is perhaps best known for its train station, the starting point of the famed steam railway that meanders through the Churnet Valley. Set off to explore and return to relax around the shared firepit, letting the children play in the gardens and enjoy the indoor games barn.

Whether you’re a couple or a small family, you’ll feel completely at home from the moment you set foot inside the door, kicking off your boots and settling down at the table with a cup of tea. Laid out in a farmhouse-style, the kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm. There’s a cosy bedroom complete with an adjacent bathroom for an evening of pampering, and a set of stairs leading up to the final bedroom and a comfortable lounge where you can really relax whilst watching TV. Take care to mind your head as you navigate the reduced head height. Outside, you’ll have your own private space but the shared gardens are also a treat and include a games barn. Let the children get stuck into the messy play provided, and there are even chickens if you wish to collect the eggs.

Soak up the views of Staffordshire’s Little Switzerland from the railway, puffing along the tracks on a steam engine. There are even more thrills and spills to entertain youngsters at Alton Towers, 7 miles away, thanks to CBeebies Land, but the adrenaline enthusiasts will also be well catered for. The Staffordshire Moorlands provide endless opportunities for walks through the countryside, and the Dovedale Valley, 11 miles away, is simply breathtaking.

Myself and my daughter had a fabulous time staying with you, the cottage is perfect for Alton towers, the Churnet valley railway, canal toe path walking and as a base to head off into the dales. The drive from Froghall to Buxton drive was amazing. would recommend to all. Great trip around the farm as well thanks for the eggs they were great.

Lovely cottage with everything you need. The owners are there if you need them but they didn't overcrowd you, so really good balance. Great little hamper to welcome us on our arrival, with eggs, cake, tea, ground coffee, satsumas and apples, nice mix of things and very thoughtful. Nice rural location, easy to get to many walks and places of interesRead moret. We would definitely return. We had a fantastic week here and so did our dog Florence! Thank you Hide
