We offer a set weekend price from Friday to Monday, so while you are very welcome to come for 2 nights, the price would be the same.

Please note whilst the patio areas are easily accessible from the kitchen patio doors, the rear garden is terraced and accessed via steps that may be unsuitable for those with limited mobility or young children. Front garden has two wide steps down from driveway leading in to walled gravelled garden with potted plants and flowers.

Had a fabulous stay at Duckling and Puddle Duck with family over New Year, so relaxed and made happy memories. So good we booked again for this new year xx
