Duck End is a charming converted beamed barn tucked away in an idyllic peaceful valley nestling amongst tall trees with a lovely bridle path walk merely a stones throw away. Secluded and private, whilst a short drive to the bustle of Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth and Totnes, makes this cosy property a haven for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. It is an ideal place for a couple to get away from it all, and yet it is centrally located in the South Hams with a varied selection of popular beaches and village pubs within a short drive away. Duck End is also dog friendly and the owners who live in the adjoining property will ensure guest privacy and enjoyment.
A glazed door leads down 2 steps into a most attractive living room with Karndean floors, exposed scissor beams and includes a comfortable sofa, dining table to seat 4, digital TV, DVD, iPod dock with built-in CD player, books and magazines.

Owners were very welcoming. Very peaceful setting.
While generally the standard of the equipment was good there was a distinct lack of provision for the storage of dry food goods. such as breakfast cereals, preserves, tin food, biscuits, dog food etc., etc., however this certainly would not prevent us from using this property again.
Thank you for your comments and pleased that you had a good holiday. We've passed your comments about storage onto the owners, but providing additional storage in the kitchen area may prove a little difficult. However, we'll look into it and hope to see you again soon. The Toad Hall team.

Duck End was lovely. The owners were very helpful. Would love to go there again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Duck End to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.It is a lovely peaceful hideaway very well equipped comfortable and clean.Good location for exploring this part of Devon. A nice thought by the owners John and Lisa to provide a Devon cream tea on arrival and thanks to Toad Hall the goody bag for our dog Murphy
It was a lovely area to stay, very tranquill and lovely to hear the beautiful birdsong. On arrival there was a lovely welcome with a homemade cake,a chew for the dog and a jug of milk. I was very impressed with the goodie bag for my dog that was left on the doorstep of the accommodation one day. My golden retreiver was more than pleased. Very nice touches with the owners and Toad Hall Cottages willing to go that extra mile to make our stay one to remember.
A superbly pleasant, comfortable and relaxing location. Perfect to unwind and get away from it all. The welcome cake and flowers were a really good touch. I'll definitely be recommending Duck End to friends and family.
This cottage has the "wow" factor from the moment you arrive. The peace and tranquillity cannot be conveyed through any brochure, you have to experience it! Utterly lovely in every sense. The cottage is full character providing high quality furnishings throughout and spotlessly clean (even a home made cake and flowers await). Equally as important was the safe and enclosed environment for our dogs. Our stay was totally faultless and we will be returning next year.
We had such a wonderful stay absolutely loved the cottage and the area, would love to come back
