Wow, what a lovely relaxing and tranquil place to stay. We only wish we had booked it for two weeks. The layout was brilliant, bed comfy, cottage spotless. Ideal for a dog. We had ours on a long lead as he could get through the fences and gates and it is a working farm. Owner very helpful and interesting. Will stay again.

The cottage is in a wonderful setting - very peaceful with a lovely view of an orchard, field and hills beyond. The sun pours onto the terrace in the afternoon and evening - we enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner outside. It is a very comfortable place to be with homely, tasteful decor. There were easy walks from the cottage with stunning views. ThRead moree owner was very helpful - especially when we'd left some property behind! Hide

We had a perfect stay at Pigscote - the cottage itself was very cosy and had everything we needed, the location was absolutely unbeatable, and the owner Tim couldn't have been more welcoming. We definitely plan to come back!

Beautiful little cottage in the picturesque Welsh countryside. Stunning scenery, close to a small town with everything you need but far enough away to feel secluded. Loved every minute of it.

Absolutely idyllic location. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of town life then this is for you. Being well down a private road their is not a vehicle to be seen or heard from the garden.
