    “The cottage was very clean and well equipped.”

    A lovely cream tea provided by Alma for our arrival, as well as bread, butter and milk, for which we thank her, and for her kindly and friendly welcome. After a 5 hour drive it was all very welcome. There were some lovely walks directly from the cottage, much enjoyed by ourselves and our dogs. ...

    A lovely cream tea provided by Alma for our arrival, as well as bread, butter and milk, for which we thank her, and for her kindly and friendly welcome. After a 5 hour drive it was all very welcome. There were some lovely walks directly from the cottage, much enjoyed by ourselves and our dogs. The holiday was postponed from June because of the Covid outbreak, and we thought the weather wouldn't be so good at the end of September, but it was kind to us and we only had one days' rain. Just managed to get back to Wales in time for the next lockdown - now not allowed to leave Wales and venture into England again without good reason.

    - Mrs Walker, September 2020

    We are pleased to hear you were able to finish your stay before the Welsh lockdown, especially as you already had to postpone it already! - Sykes owner relations

The property

Bright and spacious, Duck’s cottage has been carefully converted by its owners from the former stables in the grounds of their ancient manor house.

Tucked away at the end of a ‘no through’ road, guests will feel as if they are getting away from it all, yet there is also the atmosphere of being on a working farm.

Attractive on the outside with modern styling and brilliant brickwork, the interior has been carefully planned out to ensure guests have a comfortable stay.

Clever use of the space has resulted in a light and appealing rooms throughout, with neutral colours accented with more vibrant hues.

The stylish and contemporary kitchen and bathrooms offer guests all the modern conveniences you would expect to enjoy during your break with family and friends. Outside, a secluded and inviting garden at the rear of the cottage is a welcoming place to return to after a busy day out.

Duck’s Cottage and the owners’ own the fishing rights to both banks from there upstream, nearly as far as Cuttenham Farm (clearly shown on OS map).

Manningford Trout Fishery is a series of lakes about one and a half miles from the cottage with excellent fishing for people of all level of skill.

You will be spoilt for choice in terms of where to go and what to do, with Savernake Forest, just outside the delightful market town of Marlborough (about 15 miles), is ideal for walks and picnic while narrowboat trips are available on the Kennet and Avon Canal, a short distance away.

Plenty of world-famous prehistoric sites are within easy reach including Stonehenge, Silbury Hill, Avebury and several white horses cut into hillsides in the Vale of Pewsey and nearby.

Duck’s Cottage is a brilliant location from which to explore Wiltshire.
