Overview

About the property

3 bedroomed bungalow adapted for those with limited mobility

'Ducks Ditty' is a three-bedroom purpose built holiday bungalow, specially converted to allow access for those with limited mobility. Special features include a ramp to the front door, which is widened to allow wheelchair access, sliding internal doors, lowered worktops in the kitchen, touch sensitive lights in each bedroom and a shower/wetroom including a shower wheelchair and grab handles next to both shower and toilet. Other equipment available includes a toilet 'raiser'. Please contact us for further details and our 'accessibility statement'.

The bungalow is at the popular 'Rosecraddoc Lodge', renowned for its peace and quiet, even during the peak season. Set in a wooded valley on the foothills of Bodmin Moor, in a rural setting, this is a wonderful place to 'get away from it all'. It's also a great touring base, with many attractions within easy reach, including beaches, theme parks, many gardens and even the Eden Project.

'Ducks Ditty' has three bedrooms, sleeping a total of up to five people. The main bedroom is a double, while the second bedroom is a twin and the third, accessible through the second, is a small single, ideal for a child or possibly the travelling carer/assistant.

The front door leads into the lounge, which includes a two-seater sofa and two armchairs, a television with Freeview box and video. The adjoining kitchen and dining area includes a dining table capable of seating five people. The kitchen includes a four ring electric hob, a low-level oven, a microwave oven, a refrigerator and several low-level storage cupboards for cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery, of which there is plenty.

Between the kitchen area and shower room is a storage cupboard that includes the electric meter (pound coins) and an automatic washing-machine. The shower room is especially adapted for wheelchair use, being entirely tiled and complete with a waterproof chair that can be used when showering.

There are grab-rails immediately next to the wash-basin, the shower and the toilet.

Outside the bungalow, to the front is a patio with furniture, ideal for a barbecue and evening drink. To the rear is the parking space with easy access to the back door into the kitchen area. The bungalow shares a grassed area to the rear with a rotary washing line assigned to the property.

Bed-linen and towels are provided free of charge and visitors arrive to a small supply of tea, coffee and milk. Dogs (maximum 2) are welcome but must be kept on a lead while on site. We ask that they are not left alone in the bungalow though and reserve the right to refuse certain breeds.

The bungalow is double-glazed throughout and therefore cosy during the off-peak season as well as the main summer holiday. It is one of several that we manage at Rosecraddoc, so if you have a larger party it may be possible for us to accommodate you all in more than one property.

Visitors have free access to WiFi.

A perfect place to stay and tour from

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two friends stayed at Ducks ditty and we loved it. Rosecraddoc Lodge chalet bungalow park was perfect. Away from it all but only a short distance from Liskeard and and all that we required for our stay. The bungalow was great as a base for days out and very comfortable when returning for a short rest before dining. Either at the bungalow for light self catering or better still at the Village Inn and one or two good restaurants in liskeard. My wife is a wheelchair user and the bungalow will suit if that person has able bodied family or helper. In all honesty it is not in the best position, situated on the main driveway and not a place to sit out quietly in the sun or for an evening drink before dinner and not very good patio furniture, plastic chairs and no table. But as I say, as a comfortable base for days out and touring Cornwall it was perfect and we shall be returning.

Amazing holiday home in the heart of Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

I and my family had an absolutely brilliant stay at Ducks' Ditty and would thoroughly recommend the property.

The property is a good size for a family and it was in very good condition. The location could not be better for being able to drive a short distance and the inland attractions such as the local farm shops and theme parks.

The owners were very friendly and answered all of our questions thoroughly.

Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our stay and would gladly recommend this property to anyone looking for an affordable getaway in Cornwall!

Owner's Response: I have taken time to respond so that I could carry out a full investigation and should also point out that HomeAway customer services have been involved in dealing with this and taken no further action. Firstly, genuine problems that have now been rectified. The two 'net curtains' with small tears have been replaced. The toilet seat has been replaced. Nobody had pointed this out to us before and we hadn't 'tested' it! The shower curtain, again not pointed out to us previously, has been replaced. Gutters were cleared before the end of this particular tenancy. With regard to the hot water switch, it is in a cupboard measuring roughly 1 metre by 1 metre, immediately next to the hot water tank. There are instructions as to where to find it in the 'house notes' and even if obstructed I can't imagine how it took two days to find! I would also like to point out that the visitor concerned actually contacted me on the third day of their stay to request an extra night! No mention at all at that stage that they had taken two days to find the switch! With regard to dampness, the property can suffer from condensation unless aired properly. We had an air vent system installed to alleviate this and again, instructions are in the house notes, but 'not found' by this visitor. In am disappointed that it has also not been reported that alternative accommodation was offered and, after inspection, accepted on this occasion and that I did everything I could to help this visitor who, on accepting the alternative accommodation texted me to say that the matter was now closed. Then, several days after the end of the booking period he chose to tell me that the alternative was no better and that they had left early, without contacting me. I hope that the positive comments from other visitors will convey that I do my very best to help on the rare occasions when there are problems and that what can be rectified is done as soon as possible. I can't help with the weather though!

Although Ducks Ditty is a wonderful place to ‘get away from it all’ and to spend time in a peaceful and relaxing environment, it's also well situated as a ‘centre’ from which to visit some of the many attractions in South-East Cornwall and South-West Devon.

The fishing villages of Looe, Polperro and Mevagissey are a short drive away. Golitha Falls are just a five minute drive from Mallards. Sibleyback and Colliford Lakes, both within 20 miutes, offer fishing and watersports as well as nature walks.

Ramblers have the expanse of Bodmin Moor, and even Dartmoor, given a short car trip.

Garden lovers and National Trust members are spoilt for choice in Cornwall. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydroc, Boconnoc, Cothele and many more.

Children can be entertained at many of the attractions in Cornwall, including Trethorne Leisure Farm (30 minutes away), or any of the beaches on the North or South coasts.

Of course, many of our visitors spend a day at the famous 'Eden Project', just a 40 minutes drive from Ducks Ditty, where you can sample the Mediterranean and Rain Forest biomes.
