“Miss This at Your Peril”
Reviewed February 12, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

It was remiss of me not to write a review earlier, I've only just realised I hadn't done it. We spent Xmas at the Piggery and it was an absolute delight. Beautifully decorated for the occasion, Lorna did herself proud.

For anyone wanting an above average break, this is for you. From the moment you arrive, until the moment you leave, you are made to feel .......well, ......just part of things. An excellent welcome pack is just the beginning, Comfortable, clean beyond words, restful, warm, a feeling of country living, with chickens, cats, dogs, sheep and a couple of horses for good measure to welcome you when you step outside each morning. Bliss.
Ideal for the Northern lakes, and all that they offer, the Piggery is an easy drive from North or South, and an easy 15/20 minutes from Carlisle on a straight road.
My congratulations to Jim & Lorna on an excellent country retreat.

“Wow what a treasure”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Piggery cottage is just stunning. The views are fantastic. If you are looking for peace and quiet then Piggery Cottage is just the place. You wouldnt have know that it was on a working farm. The owners Lorna and Jim were very welcoming and the welcome pack that was left for us was more than you would ever expect. Bread, butter, milk, fresh orange juice, home made lemon drizzle cake (our favourite), home made biscuits, crisps, sweets, dog treats. We didnt want for anything.

Wigton is a just a short drive away and has various shops, takeaways and more. We have recommended Piggery Cottage to friends already and will be returning next year.

“Quiet, peaceful cosy cottage.”
Reviewed October 24, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Piggery Cottage is a well maintained high quality cosy cottage on a working farm. Owner Lorna is very generous with an amazing welcome pack of home baking, butter, bread, milk fresh orange juice, sweets and biscuits! Nice garden area outside where the chickens visited looking for tit bits. Wigton is a five minute drive. Lots of extras. If you are looking for a peaceful quiet holidays - Piggery Cottage is ideal.

“Lovely weekend getaway”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2014
2
people found this review helpful

Lovely property, with a friendly and accommodating hostess. Made us feel very welcome, including the use of a fenced field so our blind and deaf dogs could be let off lead for the first time. The cottage came stocked with enough home-baked goods to keep us going for a fortnight! Living area is very cosy, perfect for winding down after a day of hiking.

It's a bit of a drive to get to any of the main tourist spots, although even the southern lakes are manageable. With scenery like that, it's a pleasant journey regardless.

The only downside for us was that the mattress wasn't the best, but nevertheless - highly recommended.
