This beautifully renovated farm cottage is set within a rural location just outside the town of Presteigne. Quarry House is surrounded by woodland and is situated below Burfas Camp. The house is set within 3 acres of gardens with far reaching views across the Herefordshire countryside. Offa's Dyke and other walks are accessible from the grounds of the house, that guests can enjoy during their stay. The house sits north of the River Lugg which forms the England-Wales border. The location is an ideal holiday base from which to explore the Herefordshire, Shropshire and Welsh Marches areas. Close to Presteigne, which is the 'Gateway to Wales'.
Quarry House offers two large double bedrooms, one with a kingsize bed and the other with a double antique French bed. One twin bedroom with sofa bed (available upon request for an additional charge). All rooms having views across the stunning countryside allowing you to awaken to a room with a view! One bedroom with bunk beds, is situated at the rear of the property. The family bathroom features a stunning roll top bath with shower attachment, heated towel rail, toilet and sink. All of which have been recently redecorated and modernized to create a comfortable but luxurious home from home.
Spacious kitchen with large farmhouse dining table with quarry tiled flooring, range cooker, separate electric cooker, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The kitchen is very well appointed with plenty of cutlery, crockery, glassware and cookware. The updated shower room with large walk-in shower, heated towel rail, toilet and sink allows ground level access.
The lounge has comfortable seating for 8 people and features a Danish wood-burner for those chilly evenings to snuggle up and enjoy the 3D flat screen television. The addition of a games room with separate WC, pool table, TV, DVD, games console, board games and DVDs provides a retreat for the children or young at heart!
Quarry House has been renovated to a high standard to provide a luxury home from home holiday rental. The house has been equipped with all the facilities that we would find in our own home including the exact dishwasher! We hope our guests will enjoy Quarry House as much as we do.
Hot tub Children welcome from any age.

From the North:
We find the most attractive and enjoyable drive from the North is via Chester, Wrexham, Oswestry, Welshpool, Lydham, Knighton, Whitton and Evenjobb. This takes you along the picturesque border lands, and through some lovely towns and villages. From Evenjobb, follow the minor road signposted to Llanandras & Presteigne. Continue on the road signposted to Presteigne, Barland and Burfa. Where the road branches left, to Burfa and Barland, keep right and follow the road around the foot of Burfa’s Camp to meet up with the B4362. At this point you will have met up with the ancient route of Offa’s Dyke, the 10th century border between Wales and England. Turn left along the B4362 and the entrance to Quarry House can be found 200 meters on the left.
From the A44 South / East / West:
Whether you are arriving from the Midlands, the South, or anywhere in between we would recommend travelling via Leominster, Pembridge, Kington and Walton. There is a little less traffic than travelling via Hereford, and you will join the black-and-white trail as it passes through the delightful village of Pembridge, just 15 minutes from Quarry House. The M50 provides good access from the M5. Take the Ledbury exit, and follow signs to Leominster. From Leominster follow the A44 all the way to Walton. Some satnavs will try and take you right along Dunfield Lane. Whilst this is a slightly shorter route it is best avoided. Just as you enter Walton turn right along the B4362. Quarry House entrance is located approx 2 miles along this road on the left, 200m after the turning to Evenjobb.
From West we would also suggest approaching via the A44, and turning left along the B4362 on entering Walton.
From South Wales you’d find it hard to beat a journey through the Brecon Beacons National Park, taking in Hay-on Wye on route and approaching Kington via Eardisley. From Kington follow directions above along the A44 to Walton.
