Guests comments

Quarry house has been receiving guests since June 2014. And from the moment it was available, was very popular with a cottage agent.


Here are a few examples of the comments left in my guests book.

Good Comments: Everything about our stay at Quarry house was first class. The refurbishment was stunning and such a lovely area to visit. Our dogs loved the secure garden and the use of the paddock next door was an added bonus. It was a shame we didn't get to meet the owners as they were away themselves but Jan kept in touch by phone just in case. But there was no need as everything was perfect. We look forward to returning sometime in the not too distant future.

Bad Comments: It just wasn't long enough.

Good Comments: We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Quarry House. The standard overall was very good. We particularly liked the garden and paddock. The cottage was very welcoming. Lovely bedding and towels and a very tasty welcome pack.

Bad Comments: Did not dislike anything at all.

Beautiful setting and gardens and cottage had a lovely homely feel - welcoming gift of cakes and scones on arrival and offer of local support with any issues comforting without being intrusive :)

Good Comments: This cottage was one if not the best equipped we have ever stayed in. Lovely warm, cosy and quiet. Fabulous views made even better by the weather being very kind to us. We only stayed for a couple of days but wished it was longer and will hopefully return in the future. Property owners were friendly and helpful. Dog friendly with the downstairs under floor heating a luxury treat for two tired Border Terriers after a days walking.

Bad Comments: Not applicable

 Comment: We arrived to a lovely welcome 'tea' from Jan, of cakes and cream scones - very nice! The cottage was in a lovely setting - extremely peaceful with beautiful views but close to the little town of Oakamoor for provisions. There were so many walks from the door. We found a new footpath and route every day which our dogs also enjoyed. They also liked the little attached paddock to sniff in of a morning and evening. The cottage itself was lovely. We had to have the fire on on our first day - in August! It was lovely as it was actually cold outside! We enjoyed learning how to use the Arga. The jack and jill bathroom was lovely with toiletries included. There were lots of little details in the cottage which made it definitely home from home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful cottage. The gardens and paddock were absolutely perfect for our dogs and the cottage itself is one of the best equipped we have stayed in. We felt at home from the moment we arrived and the scones, jam and clotted cream was such a lovely touch. Thank you Jan for having us and we would love to come back next year.

we've all loved our stay here at Quarry House, our only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. It had everything we wanted and more, we even had snow on arrival which pleased the dogs no end! Look forward to coming back. Great muffins btw, really nice. — Ian and Mel and Ava and Marley (dogs)
What a stunning cottage, from the moment I stepped through the door I felt at home. Attention to detail is 2nd to none. Spotless, comfortable, warm and inviting. A Christmas present from my daughter, and I could not have chosen better. The gardens are gorgeous and the paddock gave extra 'running' space for Roxi (dog).
A home from home, everything you could possibly need was provided even down to dressing gowns, slippers and wellies.
Nothing is too much trouble for Jan and Nick, they are fabulous hosts.
Before I left, I booked for next year. Can't wait!
Thank you Jan for the welcome cakes. Went down a treat :)

A very special place. The owners have worked hard to provide everything we and the dogs needed. Loved the beams, quarry floor tiles, rayburn and woodburner. The dogs loved exploring the enclosed wraparound garden and paddock. Lovely walks from the cottage and Dovedale only a short drive.

We were very sad to leave and wished we were staying for another week. By far the nicest holiday cottage we have stayed in. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet cottage then we would highly recommend Quarry House. We shall definitely be returning.
