Helping you to make your special time last even longer…that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference

We like to make life fun and easy for our Puddle Ducks customers so here are some local places we think you and your children may like. You could even meet up before or after the class with your Puddle Ducks classmates.

Closest café

De Vere Whites benefits from a café on site and Puddle Ducks customers receive 20% off.

The Hotel is also right next to Middlebrook retail park, so there is plenty to do after your lesson.
