    We had a wonderful stay at duck cottage, we had everything we could need and the welcome treats on arrival were lovely! Hubby and I especially enjoyed the prosseco one evening out on the deck looking out onto the river with all the lovely ducks. Would definitely recommend and will be returning soon.

    Duck Cottage is a high spec and beautiful home from home. It is far better equipped than most holiday cottages and very deserving of its glowing feedback.

    The cottage is beautifully appointed with a great deal of thought and consideration having been put into the furniture, furnishings, decoration and equipment. Duck cottage was spotlessly clean and presented as though we were first people to have stayed there since it was decorated / refurbished. Nice touches such as flowers, chocolates, cake, orange juice, bubbly etc. all add to the pleasurable experience and shows that owners are not cost cutting but making the experience as enjoyable as possible. The outside decked seating area behind and above the property has been very cleverly completed, providing a private, peaceful and relaxing area. This was very welcomed as on weekends and bank holidays when the weather is good, the cottage and front garden will attract attention from visitors. Night time is wonderfully quiet and peaceful and no street lamps which is nice.

    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
