About the property

Lovely stone 3 bed cottage in quiet village with delightful views.

Valley Field is a pretty semi-detached cottage, next door to the owner's home in the quiet village of Froggatt but with its own entrance and drive. The village is set below Froggatt Edge, well known to climbers and walkers, hidden from the main roads. Owned by the family for over 20 years, it was refurbished in 2016 to offer a comfortable holiday in the Peak District National Park in the Derbyshire Dales. With lovely views over the River Derwent, a central village location and easy walking from the front door, you would be forgiven for thinking you are far from civilisation but we are easy to get to and very conveniently placed for the Steel City of Sheffield; excellent for theatre and the Georgian market town of Chesterfield with its famous wonky spire on the parish church of St Mary and All Saints. Trains can be picked up 5 mins drive away at Grindleford for Manchester and Sheffield. Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock and all the beautiful attractions of the Dark Peak are easy to get to from here including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Eyam Hall and a bit further afield Hardwick Hall. Your walking options are infinite; the Monsal Trail is close by for cycling and walking and open air swimming is available in Hathersage...the Derbyshire Dales is littered with interesting pubs, modern and ancient history and outdoor activities......

The cottage is semi-detached, with the owners occupying the other house and has its own entrances. It has 3 bedrooms for 5; one 5' double, one twin and one single. A bathroom with spacious walk in shower - sorry no bath and a cloakroom downstairs. Entrance lobby for removing your outdoor gear, well equipped kitchen with electric oven, microwave and dishwasher (bring your slippers as the tiled floor can be cool), dining room with log burner and sitting room with an easy to light gas stove when you are shattered after a hard day outside. Finally a good utility with washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge - freezer available in the bike shed - and space to hang up soggy gear. Gas central heating, wood, towels and bed linen, soap powder etc all included. Terraced space to the side for parking and sitting and a lawned front garden to watch the world go by. A rather temperamental broadband supply and mobile service depending on who you are with but recently a good 4G service, Freeview television and an excellent selection of Blue ray DVDs, books and games. Children over 8 preferably please - only as we are not equipped for very small children and up to 2 well behaved dogs by arrangement....

Please note changeover days are generally Fridays and Mondays. However, I shall do my best to offer other days where possible.

About Sarah Davidson

My husband and I are originally from Sheffield. We meant to stay in the city but Froggatt beckoned when we needed a new home on the south side. Needless to say 22 years have flown by and we're still here because it's lovely. Four grown and growing children and two labradors means we are still a busy household. We are in and out but hopefully, you can enjoy this terrific place too in peace. We still have many places left to visit in the National Park and Derbyshire and the walking options must be infinite.

Why Sarah Davidson chose Derbyshire Dales District

There is plenty to do inside and out all year round. Chatsworth has a great exhibition on at the moment - '5 Centuries of Fashion' but the house and gardens are always worth a visit as are places like Haddon and Hardwick. Chatsworth is decorated for Christmas - see their website for the start date - again always lovely. Autumn can be beautiful - bright sunny days and cold clear nights; lots of tree colour and heather on the moors from August. Our visitors do love the view across the valley from the front of the house and when the leaves fall off, the famous Froggatt Edge can be seen. So we are well positioned for climbers and walkers. And finally, quite a few of our guests this year are staying to come for weddings - we are very close to the Maynard in Grindleford, Fischers in Baslow, Hassop Hall Hotel, The Cavendish in Baslow and The George in Hathersage;if they can't fit you in!

A bonus break after a wedding

  • 5 of 5

Everything is fabulous, from top to bottom of the cottage. Love the fresh flowers and Earl Grey tea loaf to welcome us.

This is 2nd this year, we will certainly be booking again.

Perfect cottage, great location, nothing missing.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautifully finished home from home with everything we could possibly think we might maybe need! Great location for a quiet holiday but near so much to do: walking plus stately homes and many other places we didn't get to visit in a week. And at the end of each day home to our oh so comfortable home. Did I mention how well fitted out it was with everything we needed and more?!!

Peaceful lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We (us and our two adult children) had a very nice stay in this comfortable and beautifully furnished and decorated house. The owner had left some nice flowers and milk, wine etc to welcome us. There are lots of books, board games and DVDs which we enjoyed using. Froggatt is a nice village and there are great walks from there - we did a 10 mile round walk along the river via Grindleford and along Froggatt and Curbar Edges. Also a walk to Eyam village. We hope to return.

Beautiful cottage in the Peak District

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in this beautiful house in Froggatt. It is beautifully presented with amazing attention to detail and everything needed for a luxurious stay and more. There is a lovely garden with a lawn area for kids to play a ball game. Location of house is ideal being near the river for lovely gentle walks to nearby villages with lovely tea shops or more strenuous hill walks. Lots of eating out options within a few mins drive. Beautiful villages and historic houses a short drive away. Sarah has a great book in the house with loads of information. In my opinion It's definately a 5 star property and location.

There are many famous beauty spots such as Kinder Scout in Edale, Mam Tor in Castleton and Monsal Dale to be explored and plenty of historic buildings - Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Eyam Hall and Peveril Castle in Castleton. The reservoirs at Ladybower are worth a look and you can walk/cycle all the way round for a nice day out. Or just walk from the front door...
