We've just spent a lovely two weeks at the Duck House! It was perfect for me, my husband and the dog! It's in a great location to enjoy coastal walks, but there is also some lovely walking across fields and along the river through the woods (the bluebells were out, so just idyllic!), which are accessible directly from the farm. If I'd wanted to cook, it was very well equipped for a holiday home, but who wouldn't want to eat out with so many good restaurants on the doorstep! Elizabeth was lovely and even came out in the rain when we were unable to light the log burner!!

This is our third stay at the Duck House, it’s a real home from home. Elizabeth & Gavin are outstanding hosts & gave us some fantastic advice on places to eat & visit. The accommodation is exceptional, spotlessly clean, comfy beds & amazing shower. We will be back!!

Mr Payne September 2021
We really loved staying at The Duck House. The bed was so comfortable and we loved the walk-in shower. It was so peaceful at night and we slept really well. Elizabeth made us really welcome and was there to offer suggestions of places to visit. I’m sure we will return.
Mrs West July 2021
The Duck House is a beautful, cosy and very comfortable cottage. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and with fresh flowers, milk, scones, jam and cream left for us it felt very welcoming. We had a really relaxing stay. ??
Ms Isherwood July 2021
Beautifully appointed and extremely well situated, The Duck House is a 'Far from the Madding Crowd' kind of place. It was lovely to retreat there after a busy day touring and spending time on the beach.
Mrs Adams June 2021
The property was exactly as described, very clean, very comfortable ,your own garden space, fantastic bed for a great night’s sleep, everything you could want for a self catering holiday. Great host with helpful info of the area and places to visit. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.
MRS MINTER May 2021
The cottage was very clean very modern and very comfortable, could not of ask for more. Lovely views over the bay when out walking on the farm.
Mr Falcon May 2021
We could not have found a better spot and we have no hesitation in recommending both the Duckhouse and Parlour Sky for anyone wanting a comfortable stay in a wonderful environment. Come in the spring to enjoy the blue bell woods!
Miss Mallon December 2020
The Duck House was a perfect retreat. It was warm and welcoming and had everything I needed. The owner was extremely helpful and I would easily recommend staying here! Can't wait to visit again in the future.

Mr Cairns October 2020
Loved The Duck House. Can't wait to come back in nicer weather.
Mr March October 2020
We liked: Being able to park the car adjacent to the property was good, also a first class bathroom. Enjoyed using the wood burner with lots of fuel available which made the property nice and warm. Being on the farm was interesting. Situated in a great place for touring that part of Cornwall.
Mr Downs July 2020

Beautiful cottage set in a peaceful location, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, we would not hesitate to recommend the Duck House. Owners very pleasant but not intrusive.
Miss Dallaway June 2019
The duck house was perfect. Very clean, modern and felt like a home from home. It’s in a fab location, everything was very close by and lots to see and do or just relax on one of the many beaches close by. Liz and family were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Being on the farm was just an extra touch.
Mrs Knowles May 2019
The hosts were friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed the chats with all the personnel on the farm and was welcomed to watch the milking. Lots of suggestions were proffered which led me to places perhaps only the locals know about. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Mrs Ricketts July 2018
We had a fantastic stay at the Duck house, The cottage is perfectly situated and so wonderful, spotlessly clean!! (So many holiday properties aren't). The owner (Elizabeth) came to introduce herself and was very friendly and concerned to check that we had everything we needed. The little conservatory is perfect for eating and relaxing in. The shower room is spacious, light and the shower itself fantastic to use! The bed was pristine clean and inviting, nice and comfortable. Plenty of plug sockets and light. Wardrobes spacious and really handy. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely book the Duck house again!
Mr Nolan June 2018
It’s nice being part of the farm, with the comings and goings, so you don’t feel too remote, but inside is absolutely beautiful and restful for your stay.
Mr Buckley May 2018
Simply the best. The cottage was spacious, clean, well equipped and tastefully furnished. Everything is of a high quality. We loved the shower and we loved the large comfortable bed. The owners were charming and most helpful. The location was ideal making visiting the North and South coasts as well as the Lizard very easy. A choice of supermarkets close by was also ideal. We did not want to leave and are certain to return.
Mr Kantaris May 2018
Excellent location, very friendly owners and their cows are friendly too! The cream tea we discovered on arrival hit the spot, although we kept some back for the following day. Enjoyed the decor which is done to a very high standard. Very comfortable super king sized bed. The conservatory is a lovely space for breakfast and relaxing at any time of day. You can sit out in the adjacent garden too. The Duck House has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday, with great beaches and restaurants nearby. Highly recommended!
Mrs Mead April 2018
Lovely property, peaceful location. Owners Liz and Gavin very friendly and helpful.
Mrs Holder March 2018
Beautiful cottage and great location as only a short driving distance from stunning costal walks
Mr Bird March 2018
This is our second visit to the Duck House. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. The cottage is well equipped and a real home from home. It’s also perfectly located to visit St Ives, Mousehole, Porthcurno & Penzance. We will be back again soon and will recommend the Duck House to our friends and family.
Mr Blackburn November 2017
Warm, cosy and very well maintained and an ideal location to explore the south west of Cornwall.
Mrs Lello September 2017
Lovely cottage with very helpful and friendly owner.
Mrs Ravenscroft August 2017
If you are looking for the perfect Cornish holiday home for two then I can't recommend The Duck House highly enough. From it's stylish contemporary interior, to it's pretty garden, it really is just gorgeous. Although it's hidden away up a country lane on a farm, you are only a few minutes away from the lovely town of Penzance with lots of amenities and places to eat and drink. We absolutely loved our stay there and can't wait to return.
Mrs Pearce August 2017
The supercomfy super-king sized bed, the accommodation was very well designed and appointed for 2 persons, modern but characterful, hosts couldn't have been nicer
Ms Sutherland-Albers July 2017
The cottage is very suitable for two people who wish to take a holiday or short break in quiet countryside but near holiday facilities.
Mrs Green April 2017
Just loved this cottage, It was so comfortable and beautifully clean. Cant wait to return maybe later in the year. Just perfect.
Ms Stringer March 2017
The owners of the property are pleasant and friendly and we appreciated the flowers and cream tea on our arrival.
We enjoyed the experience of staying on a working farm but be prepared to be woken early by the noise of the tractors' 'vehicle reversing warning beep'.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review The Duck House and we were really pleased you found the owners warm and welcoming. As you mentioned the property is located on a working farm so there can be some early comings and goings involved in the day to day workings of the farm, but we were delighted that you enjoyed the experience overall. Bryony, Customer Support
Mrs Stoneman October 2016
The cottage was very well located for you to be able to get to places of interest. It was equipped to a very high standard and it had an added bonus of being on a farm and cows.
Ms Schleich October 2016
Wonderfull setting on a farm with a view to the cows and a few steps further up the hill a splendid view all over the bay. You can even see St. Michael. Very quiet and piecefull. Very charming and extremly helpfull owners.
Mrs Buddhdev September 2016
What a lovely cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the duck house. The place is exactly what the pictures promise. Perfectly equiped kitchen, cosy lounge with a nice fire place, an incredible conservatory, a very modern bathroom with a fantastic shower, and a lovely bedroom with a most comfortable bed. When we arrived the super friendly owners had left a full Cream Tea and a bunch of fresh flowers to welcome us. The cottage is located on a lovely dairy farm close to a barn with hundreds of healthy and happy cows. There is a parking space in front of the cottage. Penzance is just 5 minutes by car. You can reach St. Michaels Mount in max. 10 minutes and St. Ives in 25 minutes. Great location! We would come,back any time!
Mrs Rogerson July 2016
Excellent standard of accomadation in a location good for all areas of the coast
Mr Jones July 2016
This cottage is the best we've stayed in and by a long way. We were made very welcome and loved our stay. It's situated in the perfect location to explore South Cornwall and its beautiful beaches. Our hosts provided us with recommendations on places to visit and places to eat, all of which were perfect for our young family. The cottage itself is finished to a very very high standard. The bed was amazingly comfortable!!! Definitely some where we would love to stay again.
Mrs Huntington June 2016
