    “The cottage was a pleasant place, however the bed linen had a horrible musty smell, the mattress in the main bedroom was not comfortable and the single room had the most horrendously squeaky bed.”

    Didn’t enjoy the stay at all because of this, the house wasn’t clean upon arrival. Would not stay again.

    We are glad you found Quarry cottage a pleasant place. We were, however, very surprised to read your comments about musty bedlinen and the cottage not having been cleaned… Lucy, our cleaner/caretaker was still doing this when you arrived an hour earlier than expected. We’re puzzled that you didn’t contact either Helpful Holidays or Lucy to discuss these issues so they could rectify things We respectfully remind guests not to allow their dogs in or on the beds.

A simple, cosy three-storey cottage on a quiet road, just 150 yards from the pub, shops and quay in Flushing.

A courtyard (table/chairs) at the rear of the cottage is a tranquil enclosed space for alfresco dining.

The cottage is simply presented without frills and has been enjoyed by its owners for many years as a relaxing seaside retreat.

Entrance porch for boots/coats.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, small freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with wood burner, smart TV/DVD and door to courtyard.

More stairs up to top floor (top stairgate) and a spacious twin (no door) with sloping ceiling, light streaming in from dual-aspect windows, two wicker chairs and Smart TV with Netflix and Prime Video.

A handy base for sailing, coastal walking and enjoying many local events and regattas.
