  • "Excellent property."

    More than exceeded our expectations. Close to lots of interesting villages, landmarks and places of interest. Particularly enjoyed towpath on Montgomery Canal and Powis Castle grounds and the deer there. Welshpool has some good shops such as a Tesco and there are some artisan bakeries and coffee shops there. Shrewsbury is great for more in the way of eateries and restaurants Good shopping there too. Lake Vyrnwy is well worth a visit as is Stapely Hill and the stone circle there. Kerry Ridgeway and the Shropshire Way around Clun are also good for walks. Very well equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean. Great that there's 2 TVs and two sitting rooms. Good wifi. Very pretty location. Would heartily recommend cottage to anyone. Owners live closeby. The cottage is well represented in the pictures.

  • "Quarry House is a beautiful, well maintained and well equipped property set in peaceful surroundings."

    It was everything we hoped for and more for this much needed break (postponed from last year for obvious reasons) There are wonderful walks right from the doorstep or just a short journey away. There is a lot to see and do in the area in general although we tended to stay away from areas of population, sticking to walks and trails in and around local woodland, canals, a reservoir and such like. I would highly recommend the property and the area and would love to return to explore further once life becomes more normal.

  • "Not criticisms, but suggestions."

    It would have been beneficial to have had a parasol over the patio table, as we were unable to dine outside in the sun. Also, an extra towel rail in both en-suites are needed to dry the lovely big bath towels provided.

  • "Located in the peace and quiet!"

    Relatively easy to find and accessible to other places. Beautifully clean and well appointed. Plenty of space for those that needed some peace or wanted to do something different. Lovely outdoor area to take advantage of the sunshine. Great opportunities to walk from the doorstep.

  • "We arrived at Quarry House in the middle of Storm Dennis and were greeted by David."

    The house was warm and cosy and there was milk in the fridge and a freshly baked cake for us as well as a basket full of logs for the wood stove. Everything was immaculate and very well equipped. We did have an issue with the internet due to the storm, but David and Zoe kept us fully informed of when the repairs would take place (it was a loose wire outside of the property), so we couldn't have asked for anymore from them. The cottage is situated in the quarry where it was out of the winds. When the weather is warmer it will be a lovely place to sit out on the patio on a warm summer's evening. It is well situated for exploring Shropshire and Wales and we found plenty to do over our 6 days, despite the weather. Treflach Farm is worth a visit, their pies and sausage rolls are lovely and handmade. Zoe and David have obviously put in a lot of hard work to the furnish the house to a high standard and deserve full credit for the work they have done. We will be returning and will also recommend them to our friends.

    It truly was a home from home. Surrounded by trees we had a peaceful week with friends.

Quarry House is a delightful, detached stone cottage, located in an idyllic and peaceful location on a quiet country lane, close to the small village of Nantmawr.

The village itself is just a few minutes journey away from the historic market town of Oswestry, Shropshire, a lovely town with a wide range of independent shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars.

The owners have lovingly restored this former quarry workman’s cottage to encompass all the character of the past whilst embracing modern living to provide comfortable and cosy holiday accommodation for up to four guests.

Throughout the property you’ll find traditional features including a stone wall, oak beams and floors, alongside the trappings of a modern, high quality, newly renovated property.

The ground floor living room hosts a wood burning stove which can be enjoyed for the prefect night in, relaxing on the sofa.

Next to the living room is the snug, offering further comfortable seating for those lazy days with French doors opening on to the patio area and private garden, complete with outdoor furniture giving you an ideal space to sit out and relax.
