Quarry Square Cottage is a recently refurbished 2 bedroom, stone built, two storey Victorian cottage, in a quiet village location. It offers a cosy and comfortable get away for families, couples or someone working away from home on business. This fully furnished cottage has everything you will need, including a wood burning stove and gas central heating to create a warm and homely atmosphere.

Quarry Square Cottage has an enclosed garden with a small lawn and a patio area with garden furniture ideal to relax in, have a meal in and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, with high quality, clean bed linen and comfortable mattresses to aid a good night's rest after your busy days exploring the area.

In the village, all within easy walking distance, there is a well-stocked local convenience store to cater for all your needs, as well as two lovely friendly pubs, which serve food.
