We loved the piggery very much. The cottage has plenty of room and very good kingsize beds. It is easy to make the meals in the fully equiped kitchen and the peacock looking through the windows when you enjoy that meal is just lovely. The views in the fields, the birds, the deer, the cows, we've enjoyed it all. The host was very kind and welcoming. The surroundings have lots of things to do and see, we've visited several locations of the National Trust. If one should have to mention a minor point then it is the three and two seater sofa. They look very luxery, but you're seated too soft in there so you cannot sit there for hours reading a book.

Comfortable, friendly place in a lovely setting. We enjoyed a lovely break.

The Piggery is a excellent property which has been thoughtfully furnished and is well located. It is somewhere we definitely plan to revisit.

Perfect place to stay for our November long weekend with friends - light and airy, great views and so warm and cosy, the underfloor heating is superb and the central log burner a great touch. Our friends wanted to move in permanently! A lovely, comfortable, quality conversion, surrounded by countryside with cows at the bedroom window and peacocks and hens strutting around. Delightful. Fantastic location to explore so many country towns and National Trust properties, with Bristol and Bath only about 45 minutes away.

We absolutely loved this cottage. It has a huge living space with big bedrooms and bathrooms which was perfect for us and our two children. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed and the views from the property are very picturesque. The children especially enjoyed the peacocks at the kitchen door! Would definitely stay again.

Lovely cottage. Quiet and comfy and would def go back again . In a great area. Didn’t want to leave to be honest

We had a throughly wonderful few days at the piggery. The property was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The location was great for exploring the local area or just relaxing in the peaceful surroundings of the cottage. We would definitely love to return one day.

A lovely barn conversion, very comfortable with all needs catered for. A great place to stay whilst exploring Somerset.

A lovely getaway in a peaceful location. Ideal for walkers or dog owners.

We really enjoyed our stay, in lovely accommodation which more than lived up to expectations. We shall come again

Excellent location for Frome and Wells. Plenty to explore in the area. Accommodation was excellent and would happily move in permanently!

Our second stay at The Piggery, lovely holiday let, spotlessly clean and roomy , we love the surrounding views and the calmness of the place, will definitley return.

We had a great stay at the Piggery. It was comfortable and spacious and in a lovely location. It worked really well with young children being on one level and lots of room inside and out for them to explore. They loved having farm animals on the doorstep. We really had a lovely time. We would book again.

We had a lovely stay in the Piggery. The accommodation was excellent. It was a shame that storm Alex came too!! It didn't stop raining for the whole weekend. The Piggery was so comfortable that we curled up by the log burner and relaxed. We would love to stay again to appreciate the fabulous views and surrounding countryside.

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!

It sounds like you and the family had a fantastic time at The Piggery. How special getting to visit the newborn lambs along with the other farm animals! Thanks for your lovely comments. Emma, Customer Support

Fabulous holiday cottage, so comfortable and very well equipped.

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.

The Piggery was absolutely outstanding in every respect and exceeded our expectations. Everything about the cottage was superb and the owners Hillary and Sue were lovely people who looked after us so well. Score is 10 out of 10.
