“A really warm, comfortable, clean and well-equipped cottage.”
We loved watching the trains! Rachel was very attentive and she checked that all was OK by sending helpful text messages. The only negative aspect of the property is the close proximity of the busy and noisy A52.- Ms Griffiths, September 2018
“We had a lovely stay in this cottage with our 7 year old son.”
A perfect base for visiting Alton Towers. We also enjoyed a trip on the steam railway (station over the road) and the Peak Wildlife Park (also nearby). The cottage was very well equipped with lots of the things you would normally expect to need for self catering accommodation already provided. A clean, comfortable and cosy stay. We would definitely re-book in the future.- Mrs Moran, August 2018

Our cottage was more than we could ask for. Beautiful scenery great location and the owners thought of absolutely everything. Thank you for making our first experience with sykes cottages amazing!!- Mrs Lavelle, July 2018
“Lovely home from home, stairs quite steep and this could be an issue for some.”
Situation fine for Peak District, Chatsworth House and Alton Towers. Pub across the road friendly and helpful. Good beer, average pub grub. Very comfortable beds, nicely decorated. Would happily return.- Mr Gagg, July 2018
“Railway Terrace is a superb property with all the comforts of home which was very important to us as we stayed for a month.”
Everything was spotlessly clean, plenty of lovely hot water and all the kitchen equipment, linen and furniture was of the best quality and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the local walks down at Froghall Wharf and the steam trains going by. All the main supermarkets are very nearby and Ipstones local store and post office is well stocked with fresh veg and eggs etc and very friendly locals. The cottage is very quiet and peaceful and the courtyard area enjoys the sunshine most of the day. Rachel was very friendly and helpful and on hand if we needed anything and made us feel very welcome in her home. We are looking forward to our next visit in August which we have booked already as it was the perfect home from home in this beautiful part of the country, many thanks.- Mr Boswell, May 2018

The Owner is very welcoming and helpful. The whole Family really enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend and will certainly go again. Thank You- Mr Stevenson, May 2018
“The only disappointment was the pub across the way which was advertising food on billboards outside yet when we asked told us the kitchen was closed for refurbishment.”
This proved to be clearly untrue as you can clearly see into the kitchens when you use the public foot path which runs behind the pub !- Mr Turton, February 2018

About the location
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.
