Fabulous cottage in a fantastic location.. Loved everything about it. Cottage was spotless clean and provided all the equipment you could wish in current times. If you want peace and quiet this is the place to be. It was so comfortable we did not want to leave. Can't wait to return, will certainly book again

Owners lived next door and were very friendly and helpful with tips about walks, food and birds in the area.. A special place to stay with places to walk out from as well as lots to do further afield. Really comfortable accommodation with the bonus of an outside space and we were lucky to have a sea eagle fly over. So altogether perfect.

The "Piggery" was immaculate, with underfloor heating! Cosy and inviting! Everything you needed was there. Wonderful views from the house. Very comfortable Queen size bed, placed on a mezzanine upstairs. Perfect in every way. Good reliable WiFi. Barry, our host was excellent, though little seen. Thank you.

The cottage was absolutely beautiful.. Barry and Lynn have worked so hard to make The Piggery an amazing place to stay. It was just what we needed, and was totally perfect! We will return. 5* A+
October 2019
Just spent a week in this beautiful barn conversion. Inside, it has all you need for your stay. Outside, the view is stunning and the surrounding area is just so beautiful. Two local pubs serving lovely food. Too many places to visit to list here. Lovely little villages and of course lots of walking. Barry and Lynn are the perfect hosts, there if you need them but leave you alone be if not. Just the one downside.... we had to come home. Would highly recommend

The cottage was superb in an area of outstanding beauty.. May be remote for some but ideal for us. Not too difficult to travel for sightseeing and local amenities but great centre for walking.

Beautiful cottage well set out and furnished very clean.. A nice phone call from Barry two days before my arrival , to say how to get to the location and to give us a warm welcome. Just a perfect cottage everything you need. Hope to be back in the summer.

Off the beaten track and such a peaceful bolthole to escape the modern world. The only traffic hazards to encounter are the abundance of local wildlife including grouse, pheasants, ducks, hares and rabbits; which make a welcome change from vehicles! Great access to the moors and there two pubs within a 10 minute drive with lots of pretty villages close by including Hutton Le Hole. Walk-in spacious shower and huge, comfy bed! Thank you both for your hospitality and the lovely gift of a calendar. [One minor consideration to look out for as you come down the stairs in The Piggery if you are tall-ish, is to mind your head on the ceiling!]
September 2018
The cottage was lovely, the hosts were wonderful and couldn't be more helpful, whilst remaining unobtrusive.. We are in the process of booking another holiday at this property. We can't wait to go back there.

The cottage is really beautiful, very comfortable and complete.. We loved the pigs!!. We made great hikes in the moors and valley. One week is to short!!
July 2018
I just cannot recommend this place highly enough. It was reasonably priced which was some of the attraction. Beautifully decorated. Large bedroom which overlooked lounge. Fantastic bathroom.Seats outside to enjoy the amazing views and listen to the sheep! Rabbits running around, too. Met by friendly owner. Milk, tea and biscuits left and during the week some fresh eggs. Delicious. Lots to see in the area. I could go on.............!!

A beautiful renovated barn done to the highest of standards.. Attention to decor and detail was brilliant. Instructions and information were accurate and useful. Lovely friendly hosts who were happy to help with information. We had a fortnight of excellent weather so were spoiled for choice of activities.Good walking area, easy reach of York and Whitby, lots of good places to eat out. Shopping needs to be planned for when you are passing through places with a supermarket, but several within easy access of 20 minutes plus. Would recommend this lovely place; we were sad to leave.
Mrs Sullivan
June 2018
This cottage is well off the beaten track.. The road down to it is narrow and there is a long drive up. Look for the sign on the gate that says Hill Houses. The ‘top’ road has sheep grazing on the roadside and not too many cars. It’s all lovely! The decor in The Piggery is excellent. The bedroom is large and the bathroom is fabulous! Wonderful views. Great area to explore. Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes in particular. Highly recommended!!

A beautiful, well equipped and comfortable cottage. Stunning views and I highly recommend.
Mr Lumley
October 2015
Without doubt, the cottage is the best self catering cottage I have stayed in. You can tell the owner is an electrician by the fact that there are 10 double sockets in the lounge and 9 in the kitchen. He carried out the barn conversion himself and it shows in the outstanding quality of the design. The walk-in wet room-style shower is superb.
Mrs Wright

This cottage is the best one we have ever stayed in. Very high quality.
Mr Duckworth

An excellent romantic hideaway with welcoming but discrete owners on site. There were superb views of the remote, haunting dale.
Mrs Rodgers

Mrs Beeson

The cottage was just what we wanted for a relaxing break, it was in a truly beautiful area and we were sorry to leave. The owners were very welcoming. The cottage itself was cosy, well furnished and was the best we have ever used. We hope we will be able to visit again.

Farndale is an escape from the crowds. The cottage is very well appointed and situated to supply a lovely view of the valley. Surrounded by farmland with sheep, lots of rabbits,good variety of birds. A fair distance to shops so work out your shopping and bring supplies for your stay. The coastal villages are only 30 minutes away. Lots to do in this area and this is a good base for exploring.
Mrs Downs

Everything had been thought of to make our holiday absolutely perfect. The attention to detail and the thought that had gone into the furnishings and equipment supplied was the best we have come across.

Mrs Adams

The location, views quietness. Very comfy bed and large walk-in shower with lots of hot water and a very effective gas heater in the lounge. The whole place was immaculate and everything had been thought of, even down to a welcome pack.

The Piggery is situated in picturesque Farndale. The lounge, kitchen & bedroom all have lovely views over the valley. The cottage has an open plan lounge, diner & kitchen, with the bedroom situated on the mezzanine level with an adjoining walk-in shower room and toilet. Everything has been thought of - there is a cooker, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, slow cooker, radio, TV & DVD player - and the whole cottage was immaculately clean. The owners even thoughtfully provide, tea, coffee, milk & biscuits as a welcome. There is a good wifi. Because of health reasons we needed to have mobile telephone coverage. This was achieved wth the help of the owner who helped us connect our Vodaphone Sure Signal. This is a very quiet location in the dales 10 mins drive from the local pub and about 20 mins from the local supermarket (open long hours), so planning is needed for meals! However, we successfully cooked most of our meals with the equipment in the cottage. There is lots to do in the area, from walking, cycling & shooting to visits to NT properties, stately homes, the coast and steam trains. A stay at The Piggery is highly recommended!

The welcome was excellent, we were made very much at home. The cottage was superb, great facilities and the bathroom was to die for. Not seen better in a four star hotel. The location was just what we wanted, peaceful and a great base to explore from. Thank you for a great holiday.
Mr Fisher
September 2014
Stunning location, a very warm welcome and every detail of your stay had been thought through. Clean, warm, comfortable. Even if the weather was awful, it made being cosied up The Piggery was a pleasure!

We received a very friendly welcome, which was lovely after the long journey. The location was beautiful and so peaceful. The cottage was excellently equipped and well thought out, there is so much to do in the area too.

Excellently well kitted out apartment (fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher...all the way to slow cooker), with lovely furniture and decor, also immaculately clean. It has all you could think to need on a week away. The area is beautiful, we stayed in late august when the heather was in full purple bloom, although you will need a car to get almost anywhere other than the nearest pub that is about a 20 min walk away. Owner is friendly and knowledgeable but gives you the space to enjoy your holiday.
Mr Kay

Mr Hefferon
July 2014
This was our first holiday in a cottage and wow, have we been spoilt. The cottage and the location were superb, if you want peace and quiet and fantastic views, this is the place. Everything has been done to a very high spec. Tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival were a lovely thought. The owner was there if you needed him, otherwise he just left you to enjoy yourselves. Thoroughly recommend The Piggery to anyone.
Mrs Jeff

Should be 5 star at least, it is a beautiful, well maintained property with fabulous views. Many extras including toiletries and coffee machine plus coffee. Would recommend this very highly, was probably the best self catering property we have ever stayed in, the photographs did not do justice.
Mr Grimmett
June 2014
A great location with easy access to York, Scarborough, Whitby etc. Fabulous accommodation which was extremely well equipped, truly a home from home. There were stunning views from your own private patio and peace and quiet! Had a friendly welcome, will go again.
