“Lovely relaxing break”
Reviewed January 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2014

We have been meaning to write a review for sometime. My boyfriend and I stayed here for our three year anniversary back in April 2014 for the weekend.
Jenny the owner was lovely and accommodating.
Providing us with fresh food for breakfast to eat in the piggery in the mornings. As well as extra logs for the fire. The wood burner, surroundings and the quite atmosphere is what we loved most. It's very intimate and great for romantic get always.

My boyfriend and I took a stroll into the nearby forest. We walked for many miles and came across a lovely coffee shop "Pooh Corner" which was fantastic! We enjoyed cream teas and scones at lunch time.
(Maps are provided as well in case you get lost)
In the evening we walked to the local pub/restaurant down the road from the piggery (booking in advance is recommended and taking a torch)
At the pub the food was delightful with friendly staff! The manager even offered to give us a lift home as walking in the dark with no street lights can be quite scary!
We really enjoyed our stay here and we loved playing with Jenny's dogs! Who often came and visited us in the garden.
We also had the pleasure of a tour of the main house and enjoyed looking at cars! (If your man like's cars he will be in his element)
Take a camera to capture the nature and surrounding areas. Remember your wellies if you go out for walks!

Thank you so much for a lovely stay! I hope we can return again soon.

“Perfect Hideaway”
Reviewed January 14, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Piggery at the end of last year, the place is GORGEOUS- full of charm and unbelievably cosy. Jenny the property owner was so friendly and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. the Wood-burning fire is the highlight of the place so perfect for cold wet winters so spent most of our stay curled up next to it watching movies and drinking wine! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook and even-though we couldn't seem to pick up and WIFI their were a number of DVD's we could watch. This place is perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway with beautiful views over the river and a great pub just up the road. HIGHLY recommended can't wait to return again soon.

“When can we come back?”
Reviewed December 22, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We were delighted with our stay at the Piggery which we booked at the very last minute as an early Christmas treat! We were right, a treat it was! What a beautifully secluded cottage Jenny and Paul have! They were very helpful hosts and recommended countless walks in the area, beautiful viewpoints nearby and more if you are a fan of Winnie the Pooh.
The cottage is an actual old piggery, nicely decorated, very cosy, yet surprisingly functional. We picked the self-catering optional as we wanted to make our own early Christmas meal and were very pleased as the kitchen has everything you can need.
The wood burner adds a very romantic touch to it all. We definitely would come back and have already recommended the Piggery to friends who have just booked their own stay.

“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

A lovely, tranquil location overlooking the stream. A perfect place to rest and totally relax plus great area for walks through the woods and Ashdown Forest. Felt like a child revisiting nearby Pooh Bridge and throwing Pooh sticks (A.A. Milne's Wiinnie The Pooh).

The cottage was extremely comfortable and more than fully equiped..lots of extras! Lunch at nearby Hatch Inn was excellent. We had a wonderful week and will certainly be back. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Possible problem for older or handicapped people having to climb steep stairs to attic bedroom ..but we are in our late 60s and loved the cosyness of it.

“Totally amazing”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I searched high and low for somewhere special to take my partner for a short stay for her birthday. When I saw the pictures of the piggery I instantly knew I'd found the place, and it didn't disappoint. Jenny is an absolutely amazing host and went out of her way to ensure our stay was perfect. She even provided us with some kitchen items that weren't already in the excellently equipped kitchen. The surroundings are perfect and extremely tranquil, the perfect setting for a romantic stay. I can't recommend this place enough. A truly 5 star stay.
Thank you for an amazing break.
