Award winning luxury self-catering holiday cottages that have been featured as one of the top places to stay by The Telegraph. Puddle Duck Cottages are located in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the World’s first cast iron bridge and birthplace of the industrial revolution, featuring 10 award winning museums.
Arooo! a warm welcome awaits our V.I.P’s (Very Important Paws) here at Puddle Duck Cottages. We’re super dog friendly and our chief meeter and greeter is Bertie the beagle.
We were super proud to announce that at the DogFriendly Awards 2022, held at The Kennel Club, London, Puddle Duck Cottages were named as the Winner for Cottages & Self Catering.
The DogFriendly Awards are an opportunity to be recognised as a dog friendly place and a pet business that goes that extra mile for the benefit of the U.K’s 12.5 million dogs and their owners. At the awards our category was the most contested and as the winners in each of the categories are chosen by public vote, we are delighted to be awarded such accolade.
In addition to our recent award, we have been accredited by the National Pet College with their Dogs In Hospitality certificate as hosts who welcome dogs.
We welcome two dogs per cottage FREE OF CHARGE, both Puddle Duck Cottage and Duckling Cottage have their own private secure gardens, Puddle Duck Cottage has the largest back garden.
On arrival our visiting hounds are welcomed with their very own hamper which consists of: bowls, treats, toy, poop bags, blankets for cuddles on the sofa, towels, and local dog walk guides.
There’s lots of snoutastic traffic-free walks directly from the door, a fabulous choice of dog friendly pubs, restaurants and cafes less than five minutes’ walk away, that just so happen to serve great dog biscuits too!
On days when it’s a bit muddy, when you’ve been for a swim in the river or if like our Bertie absolutely love a good old fashion roll in muck! You will find in each cottage our “Woofers Wash Stations” providing hot and cold showers outside.
