This is a superb property. From our arrival and the super scones, cream and jam the owners left us we have had a wonderful time. The cottage has 3 good bedrooms, one en-suite, and 2 family bathrooms. The kitchen is superbly fitted as are all bathrooms. Great lounge / dinning room with a great enclosed garden , very handy if, like us you have a very active dog. The surrounding area is lovely, plenty to do with Marlborough being one of the nicest towns I have visited. Do go to Pewsey and visit Marshall's bakery, it's great, try the Lardy cakes, you will need to go early as they sellout fast, just delicious. For the anglers amongst you try Pewsey wharf, full of fish and for £5 a day great value. Please, if you are contemplating visiting this area do consider staying at Duck cottage, it's fantastic as are the owners.

We've just returned from a one week holiday with our little dogs at Ducks Cottage and can't praise it enough. My husband couldn't find one single fault with it (and that's saying something!!) The cottage is even better than the photos depict and the owners are warm, welcoming and friendly. We 'cottage holiday' at least 4 times a year and this one has surpassed all others. It was very clean, well equipped with everything we could need. The furniture and furnishings were of excellent quality and the provisions supplied were gratefully received. The garden is truly 'pet secure' and even our little Bichon (an escapologist) couldn't disappear!! We were exceptionally fortunate with the weather and the area is full of interesting this to see. The nearby canal, Crofton Beam Engine, the White Horse, and Avesbury to name a few. Alternatively you can rest in the peaceful and tranquil surroundings. I would regard this as the best holiday we've had in a long time.
