    This is a superb property ...

    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.

The property

Bright and spacious, Duck's Cottage has been carefully converted by its owners from the former stables in the grounds of their ancient manor house.

Tucked away at the end of a 'no through' road, guests will feel as if they are getting away from it all, yet there is also the atmosphere of being on a working farm.

A truly rural experience.

Attractive on the Outside , you'll definitely be impressed with the interior which has been very carefully planned to ensure guests have a comfortable stay.

Clever use of the space has resulted in a light and appealing rooms throughout, with neutral colours accented with more vibrant hues.

The stylish and contemporary kitchen and bathrooms offer guests all the modern conveniences you would expect to enjoy during your break with family or friends.Outside you'll find a secluded and inviting garden at the rear of the cottage, a welcoming place to return to after a busy day out.Guests have raved about their holiday at Duck Cottage, not least by the welcome treat of fresh-baked scones on arrival!

Definitely somewhere which will live up to your expectations for your next break away.Fishing available:The River Avon runs right by Duck's Cottage and the owners' own the fishing rights on both banks from there upstream, nearly as far as Cuttenham Farm (clearly shown on OS map).Manningford Trout Fishery is a series of lakes about one and a half miles from the cottage with excellent fishing for people of all level of skill.
