Award winning luxury self catering holiday cottages that have been featured as one of the top places to stay by The Telegraph. Puddle Duck Cottages are located in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the World's first cast iron bridge and birthplace of the industrial revolution, featuring 10 award winning museums including Blists Hill Victorian Town, Enginuity, Jackfield Tile Museum, Tar Tunnel and Coalport China Museum

Puddle Duck Cottage and Duckling Cottage are beautifully presented, and they both have their own private drive with free parking and secure gardens, offering guests a truly home from home holiday experience, in a tranquil and peaceful location next to the River Severn at Jackfield. The cottages are located along the Wrekin Way footpath, providing our guests with direct access to traffic free scenic walks and cycle trails to enjoy during their stay.

There’s a great choice of places for guests to enjoy a bite to eat and drink, whether that be fine dining at a local restaurant, coffee, and homemade cake at one of the cafés or the perfect pint with a pub lunch at the many local hostelries which are all only a short walk away.

The picturesque centre of Ironbridge is just over a mile away with its lovely independent shops and is easily accessible on foot along the Severn Valley Way.
