  • "Comfortable house in a very peaceful location."

    House was equipped with what was needed for a week long stay. It was in a good location for Alton Towers and for visiting the various towns and villages around the area. It was good to have access to a garden which was a good size and private. Rooms were all a decent size. Very comfortable for our family of four. Due to location, you do rely upon your car.

  • "The cottage was clean and tidy."

    It had loads of room and everything was in working order. We booked this cottage as it was very close to Alton Towers, the drive there on Saturday was quite easy. We took the 2 minute walk down to the Fox and Goose pub on Friday evening for a bite to eat and a drink, the pub was so nice and the landlady very welcoming. The food was excellent and we had a great evening

  • "Very pleasant stay at Beechview - pre-arrival email from Sykes was kindly supplemented by a personalised email from the owner, which was much appreciated."

    Fixtures and fittings as expected from photos, spacious and comfortable for a family of four, with more than adequate cooking facilities. Two things which may enhance the property for future guests: 1) the lack of a full size clothes drying rack was awkward, having had to do a full load of washing after getting soaked - although there were three radiator racks, we had to also use coat hangers and items took days to dry 2) it was unclear where the property’s external general waste and recycling bins were located - not wanting to use a neighbour’s bin, we were unable to empty the recycling bin on check out Overall, would highly recommend the property - 15 mins from Alton Towers and 45 mins from Heights of Abraham - and would happily come back here on a future Peak District holiday.

  • "Great house rather than cottage ."

    Big rooms all comfortable and well appointed kitchen views from the back was over fields, and the front was out over the village church. The local pub was 2 minutes walk and served excellent food. Fantastic steaks but ask if you want these. Good centre for touring around but definitely need a car although there are walks around especially along the canal in the valley. Recommend it highly.

  • "A well presented and homely property in a quiet village with lots to do close by."

    We enjoyed a comfortable stay as a family and the house had all the amenities we needed (maybe some more cutlery would have been handy). Everything was just as described. Alton Towers was just a 10 minute drive away plus we enjoyed days out to Ilam, Dovedale, Biddulph Grange and the Peak Wildlife Park. We also took a stroll to the tea shop, Hetty's, down the road and the local canal and steam train but be warned, it's a long climb back up the hill. All in all a very pleasant stay. Thank you!

    We went to Alton Towers so the location was perfect as it was only a short drive away.

  • "Lovely house in a peaceful location, idea for our family holiday."

    We mainly booked it due to its proximity to Alton Towers but plenty of things to see in the area too. Had everything we needed and would definitely stay again.

  • "Everything was great!"

    Andrew and Emma did everything possible to make our stay the best it could be. The house was perfect for our family of five. A couple of days into the stay a couple of small problems popped up; as soon as we contacted Andrew and Emma, they were there in a flash to get them taken care of. The location was perfect for us to be near my parents who live in Kingsley Holt. Highly recommended! Next time we want to stay in the area, Beechview will be our first choice.

  • "The property was clean , exactly as shown on the website ."

    Lovely view from the back garden. There were rabbits running around the garden which was nice for the kids. Great location to travel to Alton towers, wildlife park, great walks around the area, reasonable drive from a lot of places to go for trekking, lovely pub down the road , lovely tea shop just down the hill with 2 minute drive. We extremely enjoyed our stay in the property. They could have provided extra bin bags, a laundry liner , laundry basket , more glasses, cutlery, an exhaust near the cooker.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful house."

    The house was comfortable and spotlessly clean with stunning views. A short walk to the pub which provided very generous portions and the fabulous Hetty’s tea room a 20 minute walk down hill - the walk back up should work off the cakes! The hosts were so helpful and accommodated us at short notice. The sofa was very comfortable - and a great place to relax. Would definitely go back.

The property

Ipstones 2.3 miles.

Boasting spectacular countryside views and easy access into the splendour of the Peak District National Park, Beechview can be found resting in the sleepy village of Foxt, with all of the wonderful amenities of Ipstones just a scenic drive away.

The perfect rural retreat, bring your family or friends along to explore the beauty of Staffordshire.

Park up in your private parking spaces, with additional parking on the quiet countryside road should you need it, and venture up the stairs to arrive before your charming terraced cottage.

Step past the front lawn and make your way into the contemporary-style sitting room, lighting up the open fire to bring a rustic charm and a welcoming warmth to the room as you snuggle up with your loved ones on the large corner sofa.

Move through into the welcoming kitchen/diner to find a good host of amenities and utensils including an electric oven and hob, fridge and a dishwasher, while the handy utility hosts both a freezer and a washing machine, with a cloakroom next to it too!

Sit at the dining table and raise a glass to your memorable treat, opening up the patio doors to get the best views of the surrounding countryside, or sit outside and dine alfresco with the assistance of the barbecue while the little ones play on the lawn.

Moving up to the first floor you can find the three equally well-presented bedrooms made up of two doubles and a twin room, each hosting a beautiful simple but stylish interior, as well as benefiting from being served by the family bathroom home to a spacious P-shaped bath and an overhead shower, so you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

Begin your days by pulling on your walking boots and exploring the beauty of the local area by foot, with Foxt boasting tremendous views as well as a welcoming pub, The Fox and Goose, serving delicious traditional 'pub grub' and rewarding beverages to accompany, while the nearby rural village offers a wider selection of pubs to take your pick from as well as a shop for picking up the essentials and a Post Office so you can send a postcard to your loved ones back home.

The position of the cottage is perfect for those seeking outdoor adventure, with ample walking and cycling routes from your doorstep including Dovedale, the Churnet Valley and The Manifold Trail all being within easy reach, the latter leading you into the beauty of the Peak District National Park where you can find 524 sq km of open access land and 3,005 km miles of rights of way letting you explore the wonder of the area via a variety of scenic routes, or take a Ranger-led guided walk including natural history, archaeology, folklore, family strolls and children's activities, providing something for all ages, while the thrill-seeker can find activities such as rock climbing, watersports, caving, fell running, airsports and much more!

Be sure to take a trip to the fun-filled theme park of Alton Towers, while other attractions in the area including the beautiful Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, the National Trust properties of Ilam Estate and Lyme Park (seen on Pride and Prejudice!) and the Peak Wildlife Park.

In easy reach of Leek, Ashbourne and Stoke-on-Trent too, Beechview is a delight of a base to explore Staffordshire and beyond.
