September 2018

What a delightful weekend at Black Pig Retreats. The Mukota Safari Tent was absolutely perfect for a fun, relaxing weekend in the countryside. Like a perfectly formed, little canvas house it was cosy, yet spacious and toasty warm thanks to the wood burning oven! Clive + Carolyn are wonderful, welcoming hosts and our children had the most fantastic time meeting and feeding all the animals. Thank you - we will be back!

This is a great place to stay . We came home feeling particularly relaxed. A true getaway for peace & tranquility , but equally easy to get to lots of places of interests. We enjoyed some good bands at Shaftesbury festival was on. Black Pig Retreats is a place in a fab location. A great holiday for our 7 month old puppy too. !

Fabulous place to stay. Owners could not be more accommodating, they even took my children on a tour of their farm to see all the animals.
