Puddle Duck Cottage and Duckling Cottage are beautifully presented, and they both have their own private drive with free parking and secure gardens, offering guests a truly home from home holiday experience, in a tranquil and peaceful location next to the River Severn at Jackfield. The cottages are located along the Wrekin Way footpath, providing our guests with direct access to traffic free scenic walks and cycle trails to enjoy during their stay.

There’s a great choice of places for guests to enjoy a bite to eat and drink, whether that be fine dining at a local restaurant, coffee, and homemade cake at one of the cafés or the perfect pint with a pub lunch at the many local hostelries which are all only a short walk away.

The picturesque centre of Ironbridge is just over a mile away with its lovely independent shops and is easily accessible on foot along the Severn Valley Way.

We loved the cottage and its location. We took our Beagle with us and Lilly loved it. Sonia was very welcoming and we'll definitely be going back in the future.
