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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
