About the location

FROGHALL

Ashbourne 11 miles; Leek 8 miles.

Froghall lies in the beautiful wooded slopes of the Churnet Valley, in the Staffordshire Moorlands and on the southern fringe of the Peak District. The hamlet has a pub, which serves food, and the nearby hamlet of Foxt also has a pub serving good food, whilst the nearby village of Ipstones has a village shop/Post Office and two pubs. It’s an excellent base for a holiday, with a vast selection of walks for all abilities on the doorstep, plus there is an excellent golf course in Whiston, which is just a five minute drive away and there are four other courses within a 25 minute drive. There are also fascinating relics of the area’s industrial heritage - the Caldon canal (built in 1776 and restored and opened for navigation in 1974) runs through the valley and visitors will enjoy a scenic ride on the Churnet Valley Railway steam trains. A great touring base for exploring all of the Peak District and the Staffordshire Moorlands – Alton Towers is just a 10 minute drive away and the nearby Potteries are well worth a visit.
