A cracking cottage in a great secluded (but not too remote) location. Wonderfully appointed with all the equipment to make it a great break. Hot tub is a definite bonus, especially as it is undercover to avoid those common weather changes! Host was helpful but not intrusive, we would definitely recommend.

We had an absolutely amazing time at the piggery, it is very spacious and it's in a very remote area, we took our lab with us and he enjoyed it too, lots of walks around there too, but I can honestly give this place a 5* rating as it could not have been more perfect, the 3 night's we were there were so relaxing, and the hot tub is just amazing

We loved The Piggery! It was much more spacious than it looks from the photos and had everything we needed for our stay. It was very secluded and felt totally private. We were left a welcome card, fresh eggs and cookies on arrival which was lovely! The hot tub was fantastic and we enjoyed plenty of time relaxing in there! The hot tub robes providedRead more were also great! The location was very rural and we found we had to drive to get anywhere. However there were towns and walks nearby. Hide
