  • "We had a lovely stay at ducks ditty very comfortable and everything you could need was provided even cheese scones."

    The only thing I would say is that the fridge freezer is to small

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Ducks Ditty. Unfortunately there isn't room for a larger fridge/freezer. Property Owner

  • "A really well laid out little place."

    Lots of good communication from the owners. Thoughful touches. The area is perfect near lots of places we went to visit. Although it is incredibly dog friendly there is no enclosed outside space for sitting with dogs. Apart from that it is lovely. I already recommended to another dog owner before I left.

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and have recommended us to others already! Property Owner

    We feel at home here, as do the dogs. A great location to see many wonderful parts of Cornwall. Extra touches from the owner were also very welcomed!!

    It was so lovely to have you back again and we very much look forward to your visit next year. Property Owner

  • "Ducks Ditty is the perfect 'home to return to after a day exploring stunning Cornwall."

    The kitchen is so well equipped you can cook anything from a boiled egg to a full blown roast dinner should you so wish. Cleanliness second to none,peaceful and more or less central to most places you want to visit and a few little gems that you stumble across on your travels. Will be recommending Ducks Ditty to all friends and family especially those with dogs. Thankyou for making our holiday that little bit more special Ducks Ditty missing you x

  • "I stayed at Ducks Ditty with my husband, elderly mum and our dog."

    It is excellent accommodation in an ideal location for country walks with the dog on your doorstep plus travelling to scenic and coastal destinations. We all loved the bungalow, it was clean and tidy and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our week away. The owner even provided milk and scones for our arrival, which was a lovely touch after our long drive from Southampton. We highly recommend this bungalow!

  • "Excellent accommodation."

    There was everything that one would need to enjoy this very comfortable bungalow. There were many thoughtful touches including the owners leaving milk, butter and cheese scones. There was actually an electric blanket on the beds, a first for me. I will certainly consider going back to this property. Only improvement would be a better patio area, it was a bit small.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the patio size is out of our control. Property Owner

  • "Close to the sea with enough space for the family."

    Clean and spacious with excellent facilities. Some extra shelving in the bathroom would help storing toiletries for 4. Mirror on site exit would help when turning right as view to the left is a little restricted with vehicles travelling at speed. Overall a lovely site and a great break, thank you.

  • "Ducks Ditty is just the perfect retreat!"

    Ideally situated to explore the Cornish moors and coastlines and with so many beaches locally, which are dog friendly, it made it a fantastic place to stay with our 3 dogs. We had everything we needed (including a little welcome pack of milk and cakes). Ducks Ditty was just what we needed to unwind from our hectic lives and the holiday village it is situated on was incredibly peaceful with woodland walks close by. Thank you, Helen and Gillian, for a wonderful week away and we would definitely return to explore the area more. Helen, Craig Rossi, Mia and Yūshi

  • "Accommodation was fine, clean, as advertised."

    The sofa was a little too soft for me - I prefer a firmer seat. Location was good, nice and quiet when we were there (October), also nice and warm. Television lost the signal, momentarily occasionally. WiFi limited to two items. If more connections were wanted it was quite expensive.

The property

Ducks Ditty is a well-appointed, single-storey cottage boasting a lovely position between the market town of Liskeard and the village of St Cleer, in Cornwall.

Once you have explored the stunning natural beauty of Bodmin Moor or walked the scenic trail along the South West Coast Path, take the weight off your feet in the open-plan living room.

Sink into one of the sofas and tune into the TV resting on the solid wood coffee table.

There is a bright and airy feel throughout elevated by a neutral colour scheme and thoughtful arrangement of some hand crafted furnishings.

You can rustle up a tasty meal in the modern kitchen and gather around the dining table to chat about the adventures you've had so far, or forget the cooking and go to the pub/restaurant on site with a good menu for all tastes.

Sit and relax in the refreshing Cornish air of the surrounding countryside on the south facing patio which is ideal for a drink or two.

When the evening draws to a close choose from a double or twin room for your well earned rest, each with bedside tables, lamps and ample storage space.

There is also a wet room with a large walk-in shower and handrail, ideal for those travelling with someone slightly less able on their feet.

Liskeard is a thriving market town with many shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from.

The South West Coast Path is littered with beaches and hidden coves, an inspirational landscape taking you through some idyllic towns and villages.

You have Padstow, Port Issac and Tintagel in the North, whilst the pretty harbour town of Looe and pretty village of Polperro lie to the South.

Stretch your legs on Bodmin Moor with Colliford Lake, the man-made Carnglaze Caverns and beautiful Golitha Falls to discover.

The famous Eden Project offers a lovely day out with special events throughout the year, while the city of Plymouth beckons with shops, bars and a plethora of activities for all tastes and ages.
