Welcome to Puddleduck Cottage in Lerryn, Cornwall

Rob and Lin

Lin and Rob invite you to discover beautiful Lerryn, inspiration for Wind In The Willows. One of the most stunning rural villages in Cornwall, Lerryn is a magical creekside village, peacefully nestling in woodland with a pub and village shop. Lerryn Creek is rich in wildlife and is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A self-catering cottage, Puddleduck  is fully furnished and comfortably sleeps up to 8 people. Out of season Puddleduck is priced for 2 people, with a small extra charge per additional person.

We have superfast, free wi-fi, two charging stations for electric vehicles (13A and 32A), and solar panels on the roof that help provide electricity for the cottage.

Why not use our rowing boat and buoyancy aids to explore the river, or relax in our secret garden with summerhouse and barbeque, overlooking the river.

Sorry though, no pets or smoking.
