    We had a great stay at Duck Cottage. Lovely surroundings and lovely cottage. We all miss the ducks and too bad we couldn’t stay to see the ducklings. We will recommend this cottage to family and friends and hope to visit it again in the near future.

    Absolutely stunning cottage in the perfect location. Loved all the special touches such as the prosecco and firecrackers for New Year's Eve. The perfect palace.

    Christmas 2017 was just fab as was Duck Cottage. Have stayed in the cottage before and we couldn’t wait to return. We adore the area with so many walks from the door. Missing my morning chats with the ducks at the back door! Superb

    What a beautiful cottage! The owners had thought of everything for our comfort and entertainment. The setting is idyllic and you can enjoy walks in every direction from the front door. There are supermarkets in Ashbourne which is seven miles away. We had a lovely lunch in the town at JackRabbits. Dinner at The George in Alstonefield was delicious. It is about a mile from the cottage and we had to book a table as it was so popular! Congratulations to Donna and Mike for providing such a comfortable and peaceful retreat. We hope to stay there again in the future and we are recommending the cottage to family and friends.
