Outstanding property. Every attention to detail considered to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Owners met us and are excellent hosts. Their own home is in the beautiful grounds. This was not intrusive. We can't wait to go back, and will be keeping an eye on the swimming pool renovation.

Frogmore is a beautiful cottage. It is incredibly well-equipped and comfortable. The outside space has a very pretty formal garden ( for relaxing in) surrounded by mature trees with songbirds and an owl. All of it is looked after to a very high standard. Theres also plenty of space for parking out of view of the house. There are some very enjoyabRead morele walks straight from the house, stately homes nearby, Cromford and its industrial heritage and, of course, the White Peak dales. All in all a lovely place for a holiday ( and two pubs, both very short walks away!). Hide

The cottage was extremely well equipped and, with four bathrooms and ample parking, was perfect for our trip of three couples.

The property was in a great setting, pretty front garden, patio to the side with seating.
