The Piggery, Dulverton

The Piggery is a detached converted stone barn situated in the hills just 1.4 miles from the country town of Dulverton, in the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Sleeping up to 6 guests and dog-friendly, this lovely cottage also has stabling available on-site. Initially, the building served as a barn, made from traditional stone, and housed many animals, including but not exclusively pigs! The property was first converted into a living accommodation over 30 years ago and the recent renovation (2018-19) has maintained as many of the original features as possible, including oak beams and quirky elements in every room.
Well behaved dogs welcome (maximum of 2) for £30 supplement per dog. Sorry, no puppies (aged less than 12 months). Please do not allow your dogs in the bedrooms, on the furniture or leave them unattended.
The entrance to The Piggery opens into a hallway, turn to the right into the sitting-dining room, with comfy sofas and a scrubbed pine table and chairs, there's a gas 'wood burning' stove, a smart TV and books and games to enjoy too. From the hallway, a few steps lead into the kitchen which is fully fitted with a dishwasher, washing machine, fan assisted oven, ceramic hob and microwave. It is roomy enough for a window seat and a chair to sit and chat while someone else does the cooking! A few more steps lead to the lower-level bedrooms, one twin bedroom and one double, which has a king-size bed. Adjacent to the bedrooms is a shower room comprising a walk-in shower, toilet and hand basin.
One the first floor there is the third bedroom (king-size double bed) and bathroom comprising a bath, which hand-held shower attachment, toilet and hand basin. The view from the upstairs bedroom is truly jaw-dropping – over fields, woodland and across the Exe Valley.
Bed linen and towels are provided, but please bring your own beach towels and dog towels (if appropriate).
A welcome pack of a bottle of sparkling wine, homemade scones, Cornish clotted cream, locally made jam and a small bottle of milk will be provided. You will find a small quantity of tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil etc. in the kitchen to get you started.
Heating and electricity are included in the price of the accommodation. The ground floor has underfloor heating, plus radiators upstairs.
The Piggery has really good wifi (provided by satellite) that extends throughout the cottage and outside too! 4G reception is also good, as is mobile reception for EE and Three.
Directly outside the cottage is a fenced patio area with outside furniture and a barbecue. The patio overlooks the pond next to the cottage and is fenced, with views across the farm lawn and paddocks to the surrounding rolling hills of Exmoor. We do not guarantee that the patio area is entirely enclosed/dog-proof. There is also an outside tap, handy for washing off dogs or muddy boots after a walk. There's ample parking for 3 cars right beside the cottage.
In addition to the private patio area, guests are also welcome to explore the farm’s 35 acres, where you will find horses, Exmoor Horn sheep and abundant wildlife, including rare Red Deer which come right up to the pond to drink in summer evenings.
The Piggery is approx 50 metres from the farmhouse where the owners live, and another holiday cottage, The Victorian Wing at Stockham Farm, which sleeps up to 4 guests. These properties have separate access and outside areas.
Just across the drive from The Piggery is stabling for up to 4 horses, should you wish to bring your horse on holiday with you. Horses are charged at £20 per horse per night to include use of stable, turn out, straw bedding and hay. You will find bridlepaths almost directly from the farm leading you right up onto the moor with barely any roadwork needed. Please contact us for further details.
There is an endless variety of fabulous walks that can commence right from the door – a full day’s trek to Tarr Steps and back, or a circular walk across the fields with panoramic views and through pretty woodland down into the small market town of Dulverton. All the local pubs welcome dogs and their owners!
