"A real get away from it all location"

Booking the cottage through the owner was simple and straightforward.Quarry Cottage is a comfortable cosy cottage located in a quiet secluded location.The bird song and sound of sheep bleating is a real reminder that you're in Wales and music to the ears!The surrounding scenery is spectacular and great for walkers,canoeists and cyclists.For those who are a little less energetic there are lots of lovely towns and villages to visit.A real gem of a place if you like getting away from it all.

"A gateway to a great getaway break"

Nestled into the wooded hillside above Glasbury and the river Wye within four miles of the famous book festival town of Hay, Quarry cottage combines privacy with unpretentious simple comfort and relaxed homeliness. Inside there are a wide range of OS maps and books for exploring everything outside - the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Wye valley, all so conveniently on your doorstep. If the weather becomes just too extreme there's a warm welcoming Rayburn to dry your clothes against in the kitchen and a variety of board games and entertainments including TV, DVD, wifi and so forth in the spacious high beamed living room –a perfect setting to while away a bleak Winter night beside a cosy log burning fire. Quarry cottage is a little gem of a hideaway standing in its own grounds and pretty garden (we were there during the all rain and gales of Christmas 2013) and it was just ideal - a clean, comfortable easy living refuge for any month of the year

"Amazing! Wonderful Peaceful Location. First Class."

Stayed with a friend in this beautiful peaceful location. Great communication from cottage owners, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was extremely well furnished and equipped and although our stay was in November, the cottage was beautifully warm. I look forward to returning soon, First class.

"Great house, great area"

I have stayed at Quarry Cottage several times and with each visit the facilities get even better and the house is a great find. The secluded site and the area round about make this an ideal 'retreat'. Cosy is the right word, and if the weather threatens (as it does sometimes in Wales) then the log burner just adds to the cosiness. Don't expect Wi-Fi or a strong mobile signal, the whole point about a place like Quarry Cottage is that the world can't get at you. Terrific

So glad you continue to enjoy quarry cottage. We look forward to welcoming you back again! Sorry that the printed instructions for broadband contained a typo. The correct password is now on the written instructions as well as the router! Mobile coverage is set up to please the more sensitive, who prefer people to walk away to use their mobile! However, the landline's there as an alternative, so hope you enjoy another stay!

"Fantastic secluded spot with amazing views"

We went away as a family of three with another family of 4. We had three children aged 9,6 and 6 years old. Quarry cottage is down a private track away from anything else. It is very peaceful and tranquil. The front room is cosy with it's log burner. The kitchen is well equipped. The bathroom was tired and dated but adequate for our needs. We stayed friday to monday over the Easter weekend, and had a relaxing, comfortable stay. The garden provided a fantastic area for the children's Easter Egg Hunt!
