We spent a night at the Duck House and house looks much better than the photos shown in the website. It's very nicely maintained. We received warm welcome from the host and we really appreciate the food she prepared for our breakfast the next day. We enjoyed our stay at the Duck House

Each residence was simply stunning with beautiful antiques, immaculate rooms and with every comfort you could wish for while on holiday. We were there for a family wedding and each of us... More

Location was within walking distance of town/the makers workshop with off street parking. Facilities were everything you could need, including fresh garden produce and yummy breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the bath relaxing, even with the ducks! A great place to stay in Burnie.

Beautifully furnished cottage, welcoming hosts and free WiFi - what more could a traveller want?!? But there's more! The breakfast supplies were delicious and more than ample for our guests. Just wished we could have stayed longer.

We stayed at one of the Duck Houses - Mrs Philpotts. A beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated house with a friendly host. It was so warm, welcoming and had a lovely homely feel - perfect to relax in. There is also plenty of off street parking. The one bathroom is large enough to dance in, with room enough to actually...

The provision of eggs and bacon for breakfast - and plunger coffee - were welcome additions to all the other... More
