The Duck Wing; lovely quirky and really dog friendly within Plenty Cottage.

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Whitchurch Canonicorum, Dorset, England
Affectionately know as ‘The Duck Wing’ this is a charming, slightly quirky self-contained apartment located on the first floor within Plenty Cottage. It’s ideal for two active people (or for a couple who want to be very much closer together).

It’s lovely. It’s beautifully appointed with everything you need for a relaxed, carefree stay in a wonderful rural environment where your host views nothing as being too much trouble. A bumper complimentary Welcome Pack awaits your arrival and is well stocked for your first breakfast too.

The Duck Wing sleeps two (double bed) in a very pretty bedroom. It has it’s own bathroom/shower with a double ended bath, a separate WC and a warm, spacious open-plan living area with a fully equipped kitchen. In the living area there’s a comfortable double sofa bed (with additional bedding provided), TV with int...

Interaction with guests
We'll be there to welcome you and to give you the door code so you can come and go as you please. We're really informal and comfortable where nothing is to much trouble and we're very laid back. We can give you the info on where to go etc or simply leave you in peace! There will be basics in the fridge for when you arrive and if there is anything else, just ask. We have a great drying room and lots of storage for stuff. Parking is safe and easy. The pub is near. We love dogs and they/you have the run of the garden. It's all easy - come and simply enjoy yourself.

About the neighbourhood
Go to Google. Otherwise it would take hours and thousands of words to even scratch the surface trying to explain why this is God's Country; the Land of Peace and Plenty. It's to do with the Ley Lines and folk either stopping at Bournemouth or whizzing on past to join the traffic jams of Devon and Cornwall because we are a place that the developers couldn't develop. Protected by the National Trust, this beauty and these beaches are on your doorstep.
Getting around
By car, on foot, on horseback. Regular buses travel the A35 (both ways!) which is around two miles away (up hill). We'e surrounded by footpaths but having a car is best if you want to go any distance.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 20.0 km
Railway: Axminster: 8.0 km
Ferry: Poole: 20.0 km
Drive and use your sat-nav/GPS. Find Whitchurch Canonicorum, see the (only) church, see the (only) pub The Five Bells and take the (only) road opposite towards Shave Cross...We're about 2/3rds of a mile on a sharp right hand bend and we're clearly named on the gatepost. High hedges, no street lights and clean air. Swing in to the right and park just there; easy-peasy. I think there might be a bus one way, once a week? Graham the Taxi Driver lives in the village.
