A Lovely Place To Stay
We decided to go away for Christmas this year and booked Quarry House from 23rd to 27th. We took our too (old ladies) with us and planned taking them for walks instead of seeing family and cooking turkey (just for a change). We took one present each to give on Christmas morning followed by a big breakfast. We bought all our food on Christmas eve then settled in for a few relaxing, peaceful days.. Quarry House and the location did not disappoint. It was warm, cozy and very inviting. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and every cupboard, drawer, wardrobe, room had everything you could want or may need for the stay. On arrival there was a lovely card and a bottle of wine on the table from Jan and shortly after she popped in to see if we needed anything or had any questions. The garden and surrounding area was gorgeous even in Winter and we had some lovely walks with the dogs although very short ones because of their age. The wood burner kept us even toastier than the house already was and we enjoyed filling up with logs and coal from the sheds, it made a change from turning the rads on at home. We filled up all the bird feeders and watched as most of the wildlife turned up including squirels and pheasants that collected all the fallen nuts and seeds. Jan decorated the house for Christmas which was a lovely touch and it was just like being at home. Although we couldn't have asked for more and we had everything we needed and wanted, we did however discover that we missed Christmas and everything that we escaped from.. In a way we think Quarry House and all its charm and peacefulness made us appreciate all the madness of Christmas and we would probably go for a summer holiday in the future. Absolutely fab time though. Thanks Jan. Dave and Nina

Perfect pet friendly retreat.
My husband and I visited Quarry House with our two hounds. We experienced the most relaxing week we have had in a long time. The cottage is wonderfully snug and relaxing. The owners provide a real home from home environment with a real country cottage feel. With under floor heating and a wood burner to ensure you are warm and cosy. The real bonus for us was the wraparound garden and attached paddock. Our two energetic hounds were in heaven. The location of the cottage is perfect for dogwalking. The views from the garden are lovely and so peaceful. We have definitely decided to return.

Absolutely fantastic & relaxing week
This cottage was everything we was looking for. In a peaceful and quiet location with a large garden and grounds for our children and the dogs. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you need. We had a food delivery the morning we arrived and this was all put away for us by the owners before we got there. A very nice touch. The beds were very comfortable with lovely bedding. The views are stunning and the walks nearby are great. The owners allowed our children to feed their horses which was a big highlight for them. Lots of things to do nearby. We had some lovely days out but also lovely relaxing days at the cottage enjoying the garden. The wood burning stove in the lounge was lovely when we had one chilli evening. We look forward to returning again in the future.

A comfy, cozy getaway
We stayed at Quarry House for a weekend getaway. It is beautiful, clean and well equipped. The rooms are comfortable and well decorated, with modern features which compliment the property's historic charm. The delicious (and gluten-free) cakes provided by Jan (the owner) were an unexpected bonus! She made sure everything was ready for when we arrived. The property has excellent views over the surrounding countryside, which is ideal for walking, or you can just stay in the cozy lounge in front of the wood-burning stove. We will definitely stay here again.
