Duckcottage is a five room stone settlers cottage built in 1853 on five acres of bushland at Second Valley. The property is now a refuge for wildlife so it is NOT suitable for dogs or cats. We call it 'duck' cottage because of the height of the doorways. It has been lovingly restored, and the habitat for birds and native animals has been established through revegetation. The property is secluded (there are no neighbours in sight) but it is a short drive to the beach.

Second Valley, South Australia, Australia

The beach at Second Valley is a five minute drive from the cottage (or a 25 minute walk) It is a unique beach with impressive rock formations and a safe sandy cove which is excellent for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Fishing is allowed from the jetty.
Our favorite body surfing beach Morgan’s Beach which a 20 minute drive to Cape Jervis. It is a long sandy beach at the foot of magnificent sand dunes.
Rapid Bay beach is closer Than Morgan’s but not suitable for swimming. The fishing from the Rapid Bay jetty is said to be the best in the district, and there are impressive aboriginal caves at the north end of the beach.
There are a number of parks and reserves for bush-walking and camping. The largest are the Deep Creek Conservation Park and the Taliska Silver Mine however we also enjoy walking in the Second Valley Forrest which is home to flocks of yellow tailed black cockatoos and wedge tailed eagles.
There are a number of excellent restaurants in the vicinity. Leonard’s Mill is an easy walk from the cottage, it has a bar (and is our local pub) as well as the fine dining. Travel north to Normanville/Yankalilla for a range of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. You can also purchase high quality locally produced wines, cheeses, honeys and other produce.
Groceries, fuel and fishing tackle are available from the Delamere General Store which is a ten minute drive south of the cottage. And the Kiosk at Second Valley Beach carries a more limited range of staples.

One of our favorite things in this area is the night sky. On a moonless night the heavens are dazzling and on a moonlit night nothing can beat a walk up through the bush to the top of the hill or a walk along the beach.

I am a landscape designer and retired academic who loves to sing. My partner Leon (who also sings) and I enjoyed hosting overseas visitors for many years when we were WWOOF hosts (WWOOF is willing workers on organic farms) WWOOFing is about building relationships based on travel and hospitality, so this attracted us to Air BnB. Over the past 40 years we have relished the project of reforesting the bare land around Duckcottage. Many wonderful working bees with friends resulted in thousands of trees and shrubs being planted over many years. Then we set about repairing and restoring the cottage with the aid of a wonderful local artisan. We are delighted to be able to share the cottage, which has been such an important part of the lives of our family and friends. We go there ourselves as often as possible we enjoy the complete change of pace from our busy lives, which are filled with our passions for family, academic research, study, travel, the environment, running and LOTS of singing.
