The facilities in each cottage include a beautiful, open-plan beamed sitting area with oak table with 4 chairs, sofabed, chair, TV/dvd/iPod dock with freeview, and wifi. A hand-crafted oak staircase leads from the quality-fitted kitchen area (with hob, oven, built-in fridge/freezer, dishwasher & washer/dryer) to the mezzanine level study/2nd bedroom. An attractive double bedroom with oak furniture lies downstairs. There’s a separate bathroom with bath, shower and wc. Units can be let separately or, if available, as one by opening the interconnecting door.
Named after a pair of Mallard ducks who made a nest in the ridge of the old thatch. The fire brigade were eventually called out to persuade the ducklings to fall off the roof and land into the arms of a fireman. The family were relocated to the pond.
There’s underfloor heating throughout and power is included. Cot & highchair available on request. There is a small front garden for each with table & chairs. Linen and towels are provided. Parking available. Well-behaved dogs allowed by arrangement. As it’s thatched, smoking is absolutely not permitted.
