“A perfect house for our group of friends and all our children”
Reviewed 7 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I totally agree with the previous review. The cream tea waiting for us was lovely after the long drive from London. The Ren products were a nice touch. I would urge guests to look in the cupboards, whatever you're looking for is probably there e.g. potty, plenty of extra bedding, pillows, steriliser for baby bottles, etc etc. The bedrooms were all superb (as previous reviewer said), the toy box was well stocked so I needn't have taken toys or books for the children. Lots of rooms to explore and they loved the play house outside. I wish we'd have had chance to go halfway down the driveway to the secret garden! It looks lovely.
The house is really close to the shops and beach. We went to the Tunnels Beaches at the bottom of the road (there is a soft play place there too). It was my first time in Devon and I wasn't used to so many hills so I did struggle to get my car up the steep driveway (I drive a slightly underpowered large MPV) but my friends didn't struggle in their estate cars so it may have been my terrible driving! ;)
Sainsburys was the only online delivery that served this address so we booked a delivery for day of arrival.
The instructions for all the appliances were easy to find (I definitely needed them for the non-AGA oven). SkyPlus and wifi all working fine (although we didn't have the PIN for the movie channels, couldn't find it in the Information Folder)
The artwork round the house is lovely, a mix of traditional style and modern. Paintings by the owner look great and the beds made of what looks like reclaimed wood were lovely too. Great atmosphere at this house, I would definitely recommend!

“Perfect house for family and friends”
Reviewed 1 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

From the moment we arrived, we all loved The Quarry; spacious, clean, beautifully appointed (each room had plus points so nobody felt short changed, and there was no need to draw lots for rooms like we usually do!), lovely bed linen, large well appointed bathrooms. Complimentary Ren products and welcome food basics including cream tea on arrival were such a nice touch. Lovely aga and alternative oven for non-aga lovers.
Loads of crockery and kitchen equipment - 15 of us continuously eating and drinking and we never ran short of anything and found everything we needed. Logs for the open fire, endless ice for the gin and tonics...
Fantastic location; we enjoyed the walks, the town of Ilfracombe (beware transition seasons like June - lots of good local restaurants seem to be closed Sun to Tues inclusive), local yoga (http://www.facebook.com/breathingyoga) and the pub in the nearby village of Lee, plus all the other recommendations made by the kind owners (google 'The Quarry' website for details).
We felt the house had the perfect mix of style, comfort and taste, we settled in and relaxed immediately. It felt comfortable, up market and homely but uncluttered with great artwork and lighting, modern frnishings, audiovisual equipment etc.
We had sun too! So lucky as the rest of the UK seemed to be suffering a rain deluge at the time. We we all loved having breakfast and coffee on the sunny terrace but I am quite sure we'd have loved the house even if the weather hadn't been so obliging.
Truly fantastic house, it's going to be hard to find another one so good for next time.

“It had it all”
Reviewed 7 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

The house is a wonderful balance of style and comfort. We were able to relax without worrying. Flowers in the main rooms were a lovely touch and the cream teas were gratefully received (as well as the milk and butter). It's the best appointed house (including crockery and cooking equipment) that I've ever been to. Just lovely.

Friday night we stayed in and had dinner for 15 round the table. Saturday it was fish and chips from Maddy's - yum!

A lovely time was had by all, the team have obvioulsy got the right recipe here. Take one very clean &beautiful house, furnish it well, make sure your guests ahve enough tea, milk, sugar coffee to get them started, throw in some cream buns, et voila!
