“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.

We stayed in thus property with our two golden retrievers. The wraparound garden was great for them, and the extra pasture was a bonus. Loved the underfloor heating. The cakes made by the owner was a real treat.

“Excellent dog friendly cottage”

Although a late review, Quarry cottage couldn't have provided a better place for us and our dogs to stay: large secure garden, walks from the door and a pub, albeit at the bottom of the hill. The cottage itself was well equipped and very cozy. Excellent week had.

“A lovely, peaceful cottage in an idyllic, rural setting with lots to do nearby!”

We have just arrived home from Quarry House and will definitely be booking for next year. The cottage is simply beautiful, with stunning gardens and views. The location was perfect for us as a family; we had the benefit of a quiet, peaceful area with lovely countryside walks, whilst being able to get in the car and arrive at Alton Towers within 10 minutes. Next time, I am planning on experiencing a little more of the local history as there are some lovely old houses/ national trust places nearby! The owner was very nice and extremely welcoming; as far as amenities were concerned, she had thought of everything. The cakes on arrival were delicious! Due to the range of games available, my 11 year old son is now a monopoly enthusiast, to the point where we even purchased an Alton Towers copy!
Overall, the cottage was homely, comfortable and renovated perfectly with a balance of modern and authentic features, which we loved. We really couldn't fault our stay and would highly recommend Quarry House for people of all ages. We WILL be booking again shortly!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

There is no doubt that Quarry House is in a lovely village and has great views. However our experience of staying here was very disappointing. The weather was chilly and wet for almost al of our stay.The house was cold on arrival, the underfloor heating set to come on at 4.30pm, we arrived at 4pm. The heating takes an absolute age to come on and the Rayburn/heating/water heating system in the dining room was incredibly noisy. Thermostats in the rooms were locked at a low temperature and could not be altered. The owner apparently altered the setting the next day at our request but quite honestly we could not tell the difference. The only saving grace was the woodburner in the lounge which kept us warm. Had it not been for that I think we would have left. The fridge needed defrosting badly - our eggs froze by the second day. Items of crockery were chipped, a mug was so tea stained I had to bleach it. There was a filthy radio in the kitchen, old sauce bottles, bits of food etc left in the cupboard by previous guests. All in all the downstairs of this place was very disappointing. The upstairs however was very nice; comfortable beds and good bed linen. Nice Jack and Jill shower room but irritating do and don't signs everywhere are not conducive to a feeling of being made welcome, comfort or relaxation. We had friends staying with us for the first two nights and they too were very surprised this place had been rated 5 ticks.

“Beautiful House”

My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend at Quarry House with a friend and her partner. It is such a beautiful house and the beds are extremely comfortable!!

On arrival we noticed that we had all the provisions we needed - tea bags, coffee, milk, sugar… the important stuff ;-) The owner had also made us a cake – which was delicious and they provided us with an information pack with lots of things to do.
Alton Towers is a 15 minute drive away which is a bonus.

We will definitely go back for another peaceful weekend away.
