Recently stayed here with my girlfriend, and from the off were made to feel extremely welcome. There were lovely Chocolate Brownies baked for us which was a lovely touch, and we pre ordered a lovely breakfast hamper, highly recommended!
The property is set behind the owner's main accomodation and has a lovely little patio and seating area, and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Perfect and peaceful! Great location for getting out and sightseeing, it feels like you are a million miles from anywhere when in fact it's only 10 minutes from Taunton.
Also, definitely recommend the Blagdon Inn for a bite to eat, exceptional food there, only 2 miles from the Old Pigsty. Thanks for a great holiday.

Gareth and Sian.

“Amazing, relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed at The Old Pigsty last week(over half term) it was everything we hoped it would be. The accomodation was clean and a highstandard with all the ameneties required when on holiday. We enjoyed the chickens being around and made friends with the two cats. Sarah was very nice and the full English hamper was very good value for money and the welcome cakes were amazing.
