3 Quarry Cottages is one of four delightful period cottages enjoying a tucked-away woodland position on the rural outskirts of this popular village, just half a mile from the mainline station.

Dating back to the late Victorian period, the cottages were originally built to house the quarrymen during the extraction of sandstone from the near-by rock face, the remnants of which can still be seen in the woods behind.

Nestled at the end of a long track from the lane, 3 Quarry Cottages benefits from lovely mature gardens to the front and rear and has been updated over the years to create stylish, light and spacious accommodation, arranged over three floors. Further points of note include:
- path from the track giving access to the door to number 3 Quarry Cottages, opening into an entrance hall/utility room providing useful domestic space, with a bathroom off;
- compact country-style fitted kitchen open plan to a 22'3 dining/sitting room with a lovely outlook over the rear garden to the South and a pretty brick fireplace with oak mantel and surround and a quarry-tiled hearth;
- three first floor bedrooms with an attractive outlook through big sash windows, two with period fireplaces;
- well-proportioned second floor bedroom with an en suite shower room and large velux windows where a view over rolling wooded countryside can be enjoyed. A striking feature of this room is the exposed wide brick chimney breast to one wall, with a coal-effect gas stove to the fore. A mezzanine level, accessible via a retractable wooden ladder, lies above.

- mature South-facing gardens to the rear, with a lawn, herbaceous borders and mixed planting to the boundaries, giving colour, privacy and shelter. A brick and paved terrace spans the back of the cottage providing a pretty seating area for enjoyment of the lovely position;
- garden to the front with trees and well-stocked raised herbaceous borders, with a substantial Studio at the end providing excellent ancillary space away from the house, with electricity supply and a telephone line;
- 3 Quarry Cottages enjoys a right of way for access over the entrance track;
- there is a designated parking area for three cars for the cottage, near the gate to Three Oaks Lane.
