We had the pleasure of staying in the Piggery for just over 2 months (Jan-Mar 2014) on a short term let basis while waiting to complete on our new home.
Carole and Stefan were the perfect hosts, from their understanding about the constant changing of final dates towards the end of our stay, to the daily delivery of fresh eggs, nothing was too much trouble!
The Piggery itself is in an idyllic location. Adjoining the farmhouse, located along a small hillside road, the views you get when pulling up the drive are something else. Some days we found ourselves looking out of the living room windows over the Colne Valley rather than watching the big wall mounted TV! The Rose & Crown, only a short 5min walk away, makes for a great local eatery. Inside the property, everything is of very high spec, modern and spotless. The trap door down to the secret rooms is a very clever idea – the whole place wouldn’t look out of place on Grand Designs.
Having been our home while bringing our first newborn baby into the world, the Piggery will always hold a special place in our hearts. At a time in our lives when we could have easily been full of worry and stress, our stay ensured we were the complete opposite. Even though we were leaving to move into our new home, we were sad to say goodbye.More
