This is the perfect family accommodation for family (elderly and small children). We stayed in the Mrs Philpotts house. The owner has been very helpful and show us around the house.

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.

My husband and I recently enjoyed three nights in Burnie at the Duck House. The house is very charming and Lynne is a great host, giving us a thorough introduction to the property and good advice on restaurants. The house is very well equipped with a great washing machine and well equipped kitchen. The communal garden was also appreciated. The... More

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

This place is our saviour on the occasional family visits to Burnie. Each house is an individual delight with period decoration and furnishings. This trip we stayed in the Duck House and enjoyed cooking meals with fresh produce from the garden. Lyn and Titch are helpful and friendly and obviously love their houses. Don't stay anywhere else in Burnie.

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

Several friends and family members recently stayed at the trio of B & Bs [owned by the same people] - The Duck House, Mrs. Philpotts and Amelia's Cottage. 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
