We're sorry The Pigsty didn't quite tick all your boxes but hope that you enjoyed your stay overall. Julie, Customer Support

This is a beautiful little barn, lovely quiet location. Would recommend.

Great place to stay especially if you have a dog. Great secure garden. Amazing location, has everything near by if you have transport. Very quiet location & spaced out enough from the other 3 properties. Would stay again.

Booked all the barns for a special family holiday. The Pigsty was great and well kitted out. Setting is brilliant and so peaceful. However, we did think there could have been some larger cooking equipment available for such an occasion. These barns lend themselves to this so well. Definitely recommend??

We had a wonderful holiday with the extended family as we were able to book 3 of the properties. Plenty of space for the children to enjoy and a perfect central location to visit anywhere on the Island. We would love to come back!

We can’t rate the property any lower the 5 stars, it met with our requirements and an idyllic location, extremely clean and with all the products left for our use ie dishwasher tablets, hand gel, the cleaners really did a great job

A lovely rural location, peace and tranquillity guaranteed! You do need to drive to the nearest pub but the countryside and nature around the cottage make up for that. We really enjoyed our stay and found the property relaxing.

Good location

My mum and dad stayed in the stables and my family stayed in the pigsty. Which worked out really well because they were next door to each other. Walked in the door and greeted with cake. Lovely touch. Lovely open space in the living room and kitchen (stables slightly bigger space than pigsty). Great for socialising. They provided towels, linen, cleaning sprays, washing up liquid etc. So didn't have to worry about any if that. They had a washing machine and dish washer. The pigsty had a front garden which was secure for our dog and toddler (probably better having a front garden than back garden if you have a dog because can see the car from the garden as I was doing things back and forth from the car. However, less private than the stables) Had everything we needed for a self accommodation. I was really impressed with facilities and items provided. I didn't have to pack the whole kitchen sink on this occasion. If you had a lot of family staying, you could hire out all four barns. That's would be amazing. Trying somewhere different next year with Classic Cottages but will definitely be back in the future. I know its a two bedroom but not quite big enough for us all to stay in one with a toddler. Can be done but I like me space.

The pigsty main double bedroom had a memory foam mattress, which was perfect for me as i suffer from bad back. The two singles bed and beds in the stables were spring mattress, still comfortable but really happy to have the memory foam one. The pigsty had a separate shower, separate bath and toliet.

We had an issue with the hot water/heating. We did not have for 24 hours. Contacted classic cottages evening of emergency line. Got a callback and text. Then chased up again in the morning. Engineer come out between 3-5pm next day. Lucky my parents were staying next door so we could use there shower. Chased up with Classic Cottages after holiday but haven't heard anything back yet.

Lovely cottage in a great location. Loved the enclosed garden, as did our dog. Would definitely come again.
