The Piggery is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. it was exceptionally clean, warm and comfortable with so much space. It was a treat to return to each day and we really appreciated the log burner as it was a cold and windy week in February. The children loved seeing the goat, cows, deer and pheasants on the farm and also visiting the new born lambs. We were made to feel very welcome. Thank you!

The Piggery was fantastic. The quality was superb. The owners had thought of everything. We did not want to leave.

The location was also excellent - so close to so many great places to visit. The view to Glastonbury Tor was also very special.
