“Fantastic accomadation, helpfull and friendly people including their dog.”
Reviewed July 18, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Quiet location with great views, quiet and tranquil. Accomadation was clean & well equiped.The owners were helpfull and could not have done more to make our stay better. Plenty of shops, supermarkets, restaurants & attractions within a short (10/15 miles) drive. Would love to stay again.

“Four Ladies one week !”
Reviewed June 17, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Found this on trip advisor never been before and I have to say we were delighted we had an elderly lady with us so really lucky as all on one level . Two bathroom perfect for four ladies getting ready .
The place was beautiful lovely view over sea and very peaceful . Such a well equipped holiday home every gadget you could ever need in the kitchen . Loved having a dishwasher and washing machine however only used washing machine once to wash towels which are also included in your stay . Linen was included and beds were very comfortable.
Caroline was exstreamly friendly and helpful when needed but not intrusive . We all fell in love with the family dog Buddy such a lovely friendly dog !
Thank you for a wonderful relaxing week .

“Great hosts”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We stayed here for 5 nights after Christmas and were made very welcome.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t quite so accommodating! We found the Pigsty to be very clean and it had everything we needed.
When we told the owners it was too cold they provided a heater and extra blankets.

“A delightful place to stay in Cornwall.”
Reviewed December 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Pigsty. The location is perfect and on most days, we were treated to a wonderful view of the sea. Caroline is the perfect host and the accommodation is very comfortable with everything we needed to self cater. We enjoyed using fresh local produce that abounds in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

“Brilliant”

Just returned from a week staying at the pigsty. Caroline has thought of everything. It was spotless and very cosy. Heating even on when we arrived. You do need a car as it is a little remote but that is the appeal of it. Lovely views of the valley. Could spend all summer there. Caroline is a super person very helpful and friendly . I would recommend the pigsty to anyone. While there do visit Plymouth gin factory for a tour,also St Austell brewery great day out. Plymouth aquarium is also worth a visit. Thank you Caroline for a great week.
