Quarry cottage was built in 1821, originally it was a set of three cottages but over the years the third cottage was demolished which left the two remaining cottages these were then converted to make one fantastic detached property. The current owners brought the property 11years ago in a near derelict state, over the years they have transformed the property to become the lovely family home it is today.The renovations included the addition of two extensions and the development of the garden to the large private space it is today. Adding to the charm and history of the property this stunning cottage was once owned by the Grandfather of the famous writer D H Lawrence and is featured in some of his books.
