I stayed here with my partner for a break from the city. The Piggery is simply stunning. It is beautifully finished with gorgeous artistic touches, and comes with every amenity you will need - even tins to make Yorkshire puddings in, & the home made cider and apple juice is to die for! The log fire kept us warm, and we had a wonderful afternoon on Thursday looking around Peet & Carl's house at their stunning creations. It was clean, bright and airy, and perfectly situated for a few days exploring. The house is located superbly for the sea (around 20 mins), and up to Dartmouth & Totnes isn't much longer, we stopped at Haytor on the way back as well. Honestly couldnt recommend this enough to anyone. Great place, and Peet & Carl were extremely welcoming hosts.

“Incredible place..”

This is no average abode - more of a masterpiece and testament to Carl and Peet's creative maker talents. The time spent in building, fitting and decorating The Piggery is evident at every turn; even after a week's stay we were finding impressive and intricate architectural details. Peet and Carl are wonderful hosts - warm, friendly and helpful but completely unobtrusive - just the right balance. The Piggery is a warm, comfortable and stylish sanctuary and suited us perfectly for our time there. Wholeheartedly recommended

We had a wonderful stay at the Piggery. The place is beautiful - just like in the photos. The log fire is great - makes it really cosy in the evening. The owners are very helpful and accomodating and left us lots of goodies (wine, homemade apple juice and cider vinegar as well as tea, coffee, milk, butter etc). Would definitely stay again!

We loved out stay at The Piggery and have already booked our return. It has comfy beds, and is clean, quiet and aesthetically pleasing. It is also close to the village for shopping, and there are countryside footpaths at the doorstep. Dartmoor and the coast are just a short drive away too. Our hosts were full of local knowledge and couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. It was memorable and I highly recommend a visit!
