Guestbook comments from the manager

This was the perfect, romantic getaway break. The housekeeper was lovely and really helpful and we had no problems at all. The cottage was well equipped and cosy but felt light and spacious. The bed was very comfy and being such a quiet location I don't think I've ever slept so soundly. The local pub is a great distraction - with good pub food and a roaring fire. If you want to get away from it all but have a little bit of extra then Duck Street Cottage is ideal!

Duck Street Cottage is beautifully presented and very comfortable - perfect for two. It was especially nice that the bedroom and bathroom were so spacious - a 2nd bedroom hadn't been squeezed in as you would find in so many properties. The kitchen is small but has everything you would need, and the welcome basket on arrival is a lovely touch. We particularly enjoyed the fire even though it was May! The pub nearby does good food and the staff are very welcoming. We had a couple of walks straight from the door.
