“Amazing, relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at The Old Pigsty last week(over half term) it was everything we hoped it would be. The accomodation was clean and a highstandard with all the ameneties required when on holiday. We enjoyed the chickens being around and made friends with the two cats. Sarah was very nice and the full English hamper was very good value for money and the welcome cakes were amazing.

Tranquil in a beautiful setting, My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the old pigsty, Sarah and Stewart made us feel very welcome and we were given plenty of information of places to visit and things to do, the accommodation was clean and tidy and we had a comfortable stay there so much so that we stayed on an extra day!! Would definitely recommend.

“Excellent, friendly, homely, great value accommodation! Recommended highly.”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Me and my husband came to stay at the Pigsty for a few days this month. We were really really impressed. It is like a home away from home with your own bed, wardrobes, drawers, dining table, kitchen with oven microwave utensils etc, bathroom ... What more could you ask for? Much better than staying in a hotel - with such a warm friendly service from Sarah and Stewart who make you feel very welcome. The helpful welcome manual also gives advice on where to go and what to do in the area and also where to eat, which is fantastic! We will definitely return when we are next in Somerset.
