An overall perfect escape to the country. A very peaceful and beautiful place to unwind from everyday life. We would go back in a flash.

April 2019

We had the best time at Duck's Puddle, it is just the most perfect place for a couple and their dog. We were incredibly lucky with the weather - the sun did not stop shining - and went on some fabulous walks, some straight from the hut up into the Quantock Hills, some a little drive further into the Quantock Hills (we parked at the nearby Lydeard Hill car park and explored Wills Neck and beyond) and also ventured onto the Brendon Hills of Exmoor via the sweet village of Luxborough - all were absolutely beautiful. We spent the late afternoons chilling in the garden and the evenings relaxing in the hot tub under the stars. Definitely have the holiday blues now and can't wait to go back!

Fantastic hosts an awesome place

February 2019

Ducks Puddle far exceeded our expectations, everything had been thought of and the little extras (wine and cakes!) left by the owners made it feel like a real home from home. Best long weekend ever. Immaculately clean and lots of nice touches like the underfloor heating and USB chargers in the sockets. Very well equipped kitchen and a lovely bathroom. Think I could've stayed forever.

We were looking for absolute peace and relaxation and that is what we found. Everything was exactly as expected ... and then some. The owners have thought of everything and provided lots of little unexpected extras and were extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend if you need a break from a busy life.
