  • “Lovely, very well equipped cottage in a beautiful setting.”

    Good situation for visiting lots of lovely places within 20 miles or so, Buxton, Bakewell, Rudyard Lake and Dovedale were a few we visited. Good dog walking from the door. Only slight snag we found was the parking, which was a bit tricky. However there was plenty parking a short walk away at the top of the lane. ...

    Good situation for visiting lots of lovely places within 20 miles or so, Buxton, Bakewell, Rudyard Lake and Dovedale were a few we visited. Good dog walking from the door. Only slight snag we found was the parking, which was a bit tricky. However there was plenty parking a short walk away at the top of the lane. Everything in the cottage worked perfectly, which is slightly unusual in our experience....The can opener opened cans, the knives cut, and the washing machine, drier and cooker were very simple to operate!

About the location

FOXT

Leek 9 miles; Ashbourne 11 miles.

The scattered hamlet of Foxt lies in the beautiful Staffordshire moorlands in the Churnet Valley, on the southern edge of the Peak District National Park. This rural hamlet boasts an excellent village pub serving real ales and good food, as does the neighbouring hamlet of Froghall, whilst the village of Ipstones, also close by, has a village shop, Post Office and two pubs. Foxt offers many walks in every direction to suit all tastes, as well as picturesque cycle routes and the Manifold Way is close by. Within half an hour's drive guests can enjoy playing golf at five golf courses, the nearest being an excellent course at Whiston. The area offers many ancient relics from its industrial past, namely the Caldon Canal built in 1776 and restored in 1974, which runs through the Churnet Valley and visitors can also enjoy a ride on the Churnet Valley Steam Railway. Alton Towers is just a short drive away, as are the Staffordshire Potteries, the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek, racing at Uttoxetter and the majestic Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Lyme Park (as seen on TV's Pride and Prejudice) and Blackbrook Zoological Gardens. A great base for a memorable holiday at any time of year.
