W have just returned from a lovely stay at the piggery.The accommodation is superb.It has only recently been done and everything is to a very high spec and standard.It is really well equipped and it was lovely to find milk butter jam and bread in the piggery when we arrived.
It was spotlessly clean and all the linen and towels were also of a very good quality.
It is at the end of a small bumpy lane do not be put off by this as it really is worth getting to the accommodation.The views over towards Porthleven are lovely .Due to all the windows in the property it is light and airy.It also has a private courtyard which was a real sun trap.
The family who own the property were lovely and kindly supplied us with deckchairs on one of the days.There is a bench in the courtyard but these were more comfortable.It is also very well placed for a lot of the beaches in Cornwall.Excellent Wifi as well
Can not recommend highly enough,it is a real gem.

I booked the Piggery for a relaxing September getaway with my wife - looking forward to some time in Cornwall. I booked online via TripAdvisor and Judy responded quickly and everything was organised.

Unfortunately, nearer the time, my wife became ill and would need a wheelchair. Judy was very understanding of the situation and I explained the inlaws would join us. Judy kindly said she would take delivery of a Red Cross wheelchair for us. In the end, my wife was admitted to hospital and everything had to be changed again and, again, Judy was completely understanding as plans were adapted.

In the end, the inlaws took the booking and they could not get over the apartment. Everything was finished to a very high quality from the furnishings and deco to the well equipped kitchen. They enjoyed the courtyard area and slept soundly at night. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay and couldn't recommend it enough.

I certainly won't hesitate to book again and hope to do so in the new year.

Absolutely wonderful accomodation in a beautiful setting. Everything in the cottage was of the highest standard and we were amazed at the quality of all the kitchen equipment, linen and towels provided at the Piggery. We had a brilliant week and enjoyed the private courtyard attached to the property.. The Piggery caters for all ages as its quiet and hidden away but not too remote. The beach is only a few miles away and visits to Penzance, St Ives, Falmouth and Helston are in easy reach. You need a vehicle but I believe there are buses that run on the main road within a 5 minute walk. Would recommend this to adult parties and families with children equally it's a gem
