Puddle Duck Cottage and Duckling Cottage are two luxury self catering holiday cottages that, we’re proud to say, have been featured as one of the top places to stay by The Telegraph. Located in the heart of the beautiful Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire which is home to the World’s first cast iron bridge and birthplace of the industrial revolution, Ironbridge features ten award winning museums including Blists Hill Victorian Town, Enginuity, Jackfield Tile Museum, Tar Tunnel and Coalport China Museum.
Each holiday cottage offers a truly home from home holiday experience, in a tranquil and peaceful location next to the River Severn at Jackfield There are a fabulous choice of pubs and restaurants within a five minute walk, and the cottages are located near to the Wrekin Way footpath, providing our guests with traffic free scenic walks and cycle trails to enjoy during their stay. The picturesque centre of Ironbridge is only one mile away and has a lovely selection of independent shops and excellent places to dine out.
Myself and my Mum had a wonderful break at Puddleducks ! We could not fault it ! The cottage was immaculate,beautifully decorated and area is the perfect place for a peaceful relax ! Sonia was so helpful and accommodating to requests and the welcome hamper is such a lovely touch. I would not hesitate to recommend and would definitely return in the future. xx
Staying at puddle duck cottage was a joy, Sonya had thought of everything, the attention to detail in decoration of the cottage was fab. The welcome pack was so delicious, even had Easter eggs which was lovely & Tess thanks you for her biscuits Very clean & comfortable you would never know dogs had been there. Location is super, lots of lovely walks, museums & pubs, it was so relaxing to arrive park the car and not need it till we left. Can’t recommend puddle duck cottage enough
The cottage was exactly as described and included a fabulous welcome pack. This included bread, milk, wine, cake and even toys for the dogs. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed, including luxurious soft towels and a comfy bed at the end of the day. The enclosed garden was great for the dogs and had plenty of parking spaces. The owner was there to welcome us and also acted as a perfect tour guide. Right on the door step there were great walks along the river and the woods, which also led to dog friendly eating places. We hope to return to this fabulous cottage and we will be telling our friends also.
We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend with our Labrador. The cottage was very well equipped and cosy. The welcome flowers ,chocolate cake and wine were very thoughtful and dog biscuits much enjoyed. With the helpful information at the cottage we visited local pubs where we enjoyed lovely food in the warm with our dog. Walked for miles and had a wonderful time we would definitely recommend Puddle Duck cottages.
Our second stay at Puddle Duck with our beagle. Wonderful customer service and a beautifully maintained cottage. Cosy log burner and a welcome hamper with bread, eggs, milk etc makes you feel right at home. Lovely area with lots of walks for the whole family. Will definitely be staying again in future. Thank you x
Our excellent impression of Puddle Duck Cottage started right at the beginning of the booking process, when Sonia took time to discuss exactly what we needed, sent several photos & made exactly the right recommendation about which cottage would be best for us. On arrival, Sonia greeted us & showed us the cottage which is absolutely beautiful – spotlessly clean & well equipped. The welcome package was so thoughtful & very welcome. Sonia is the perfect hostess – approachable, helpful & incredibly friendly. She even took us on a gorgeous local walk & ‘dogsat’ so we could have an anniversary meal without the hounds in tow. I can’t recommend Puddle Duck Cottage highly enough – the only downside was that we had to come home. We will definitely be back.
This was my 4th stay at Puddleduck cottage and yet again it was absolutely superb. The attention to detail, the welcoming extra touches every time makes it like coming home. The local area with so many interesting places to visit and walks for the dogs right from the door, plenty of dog friendly pubs that do good food within walking distance. In summary a most wonderful place to stay
Duckling Cottage was immaculate and everything that had been said about the cottage was absolutely true. It really was a home from home with excellent human and doggie treats waiting for us. Our beagle, Marley, made himself at home and soon learnt his way around! The furnishings were just right and all was very comfortable. Sonia is a delightful host and we were pleased to be greeted by Bella Beagle too. We have already booked to stay again!! and asked our daughter and son in law to join us. A perfect place for R & R. If you follow Sonia’s directions it is very easy to find, we would recommend these cottages to all.
