The house was absolutely gorgeous & our host Lynne was so lovely & helpful advising us on things to do locally. The bedrooms were all beautifully appointed, the living room was very luxurious and with 2 bathrooms (including a claw foot tub) there was plenty of room for all 4 of us. The breakfast provisions were ample & we enjoyed... More

The Duck House is actually three cottages - "The Duck House", "Mrs. Philpotts" and "Amelia's". As I write this, I am cosy and happy in the sitting-room of "Mrs Philpotts". I'm meant to be going out shortly to see a show - but I don't want to go out! It's so cosy, so comfortable. I'd much prefer to stay here,... More

We needed a place to accommodate a family of six and found this gem and were fortunate enough to be able to book in for a night at Mrs Philpotts. The house is spacious with good size bedrooms, bathroom and living areas. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas provide everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The location is great... More

We had stayed here the first time about 13 years ago. And it was still just as lovely this time. All the things that you would expect from a historic B&B. Fully DIY breakfast provisions provided. We had our 18month old with us as well which was fine - more than enough room for a portacot in the 2nd bedroom... More

The Duck House accm has 3 Federation houses/cottages. This time we stayed in Duck House. We felt we had gone back in time. So many period pieces that make this place so charming. We loved the quirky collection of ducks through out the cottage. Very comfy beds. We finished our stay with a very hearty breakfast from the supplies provided.

In September 2014 we made our first visit to Burnie, staying overnight in Mrs Philpotts, a delightful cottage (part of the Duck House accommodation). We were travelling with our daughter and Max the groodle (golden retriever crossed with a poodle). From the first moment we stepped into Mrs Philpotts cottage we felt at home. The cottage is beautifully furnished and... More
