The Piggery is a self contained converted Pigstye in the grounds of Oldaway Barn, a smallholding near to Kingsbridge and Salcombe. The light and airy cottage has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and good sized shower room. With underfloor heating throughout it is open all year round. The property is all on one level and has some disabled facilities. There is easy private parking and guests are welcome to enjoy the large garden and to visit the smallholding and orchards

The space

Suitable for those with restricted mobility and has wheelchair access

Guest access

Guests are welcome to share our gardens. If you are bringing young children we have two travel cots and a high chair available at no charge. We can even provide a small selection of age appropriate toys - just ask

Interaction with guests

As The Piggery is opposite our home (Oldaway Barn) we are on hand to greet visitors. If required we can recommend places to visit or show them around the smallholding.

Other things to note

Although we have dogs ourselves we are afraid we can not accept them to visit. With poultry running freerange we are wary of the consequences of dogs who may want to chase.

Our stay couldn't have been lovelier. Mary was the perfect host, the accommodation was clean, lovely, a good size. great shower and comfortable beds and the surrounding grounds and animals made it all the better. A really wonderful all-round experience. We highly recommend The Piggery to anyone looking for an authentic, peaceful, warm and interesting environment and hope to visit again in the future.

We had a wedding in nearby Thurlestone and so decided to stay at The Piggery for the weekend. We were late down from London but Mary greeted us and showed us around - The place was exactly as described and was a great getaway for the weekend.

Mary's house is in a great location between Thurlestone and Salcombe. The cottage is beautifully fitted out and very comfortable. Ideal for a weekend away or a holiday.

A lovely property in a great location for getting to the beach or going into Salcombe/Kingsbridge. Our 3 yr old loved the opportunity to see the animals and run around with a ball in the field. Super hosts on site to assist with anything and give guided tour of the small holding. Highly recommend.

Mary and Simon added lovely touches like a bowl of fruit and eggs. Highly recommend for a few days with a car in the area. Having available an ordinance survey map was a help with our walks
