Excellent cottage in lovely surroundings.. The owner, Mrs Wilson has gone the extra mile to make this holiday home a memorable place. The welcome gift was superb. We are very pleased with our experiences dealing with Sykes.Efficient and easy to book on line.

It is the second time at the piggery and both holidays we have loved, ideally situated to explore the dales and Yorkshire coast.. So good were off again next year.
Mr Green
September 2018
The piggery is a luxurious charming cottage in a lovely picturesque location with great views and peace and quiet.. Plenty to do around Whitby, including a beautiful waterfall "Falling Foss" and tea room only 2 miles south of the cottage. North York Moors Railway Steam Gala was a great day out.
Mrs Rayner
August 2018
‘The Piggery’ , set in beautiful Yorkshire scenery , even on a rainy day.. Fully equipped cottage, warm and cosy. Welcome package on arrival. Fresh free range eggs! There are no bad points about this cottage, peace and quiet, breath taking views. Wished all holiday cottages were set out this way 5 stars all the way !
Mr Bonser
August 2018
We could not fault this cottage at all, it was perfect and in a beautiful location! The owner was friendly and welcoming and the cottage was lovely, clean and cosy. We will definitely return.
Mrs Edwards
July 2018
Personal touches from Margaret the hostess were lovely.. The location is fabulous for visiting that part of North Yorkshire. Just wonderful.
Mr Cleal
July 2018
This property is only suitable for 3 adults or 2 adults and one child.. It is 4 miles from Whitby and in the back of beyond which is not for everybody and bear in mind there are 4 substantial up/down roads to get here. Personally I think the location/ facilities are second to none.
Mrs Docwra
June 2018
This cottage was absolute perfection, very clean and the amount of extras were amazing.. Mrs Wilson had not only filled a welcome basket with free range eggs, tea, coffee and cakes but also left 2 vases of fresh flowers and all sorts of lovely extras like tooth brushes, shower buffer and mouth wash plus every type of cleaning product you could wish for in the kitchen and lounge. Very good kitchen utensils and a range of pots and pans, we couldn't get to grips with the washing machine however. We especially loved sitting on the patio with a glass of wine/tea/coffee/cider and admired a stunning scenery, it was very helpful that Sykes had arranged brilliant weather for our stay!!! The only drawback was that it was a way out of the village for walking to the local pub and shops, very steep hills. We were able to get about via the local taxi service when we didn't want to drive ourselves. The local butchers was a gold mine and we came home with a freezer box full of beautiful meat locally sourced, absolutely wonderful selection. We visited Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hoods Bay, Floss Falls and a few local villages and their facilities, our first time in the North Yorkshire area we are certain to return to The Piggery and explore further, all in all a wonderful holiday, thank you.

It is a beautifully appointed and comfortable cottage with everything being of the highest quality.It is ideally located and is set in very attractive and secluded surroundings.Margaret,the owner,is very genuine,friendly and attentive with her excellent welcome pack always being so appreciated.It is such a home from home that it's such a wrench to leave when the holiday is over! Very highly recommended.

Mr Stoddard

Another perfect holiday in the very well equipped cottage.. The owner makes you feel very welcome and is only a phone call away if you have any problems. The welcome pack in the Piggery is the best we have come across. We will return!
Mrs Roche
November 2017
Booking the cottage was a very easy process.. The cottage itself was extremely warm comfortable and clean. We got a lovely welcome pack including milk, teabags and fresh eggs. The cottage is in easy reach of Whitby and other nearby places of interest and the holiday was relaxing for everyone.

We loved it at first sight - its solitude and its peaceful surroundings. It wouldn't have been out of place for Daddy, Mummy and Baby bear's names to have been on the beds! We were very comfortable. We were made very welcome.

The conversion of The Piggery has been done extremely well. The size was perfect and actually bigger than we were expecting. There were fantastic views and it was so peaceful, plus ideally located for exploring the moors and the coast. Would most definitely return.

We loved The Piggery. The setting was quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of Whitby and the surrounding countryside. The property was beautifully furnished, cosy and warm. The best cottage we have stayed in.
Mrs Clarke

We loved the peaceful setting, and it was just about the right distance to travel to Whitby and Scarborough. It was a very comfortable home from home cottage which was warm and cosy.
Mr Williams
September 2015
We cannot praise The Piggery enough. The presentation of the house was superb; we were fortunate to have good weather for 4/5 days and the grounds and views were first class. The décor and amenities inside the house are outstanding. In 5 days, we could not fault the Piggery for a thing.
Mr Lamley
July 2015
One of the best cottages we have ever stayed at. Total privacy was a plus, we were able to completely relax in lovely surroundings without being overlooked by anyone. Your every need is catered for here, and you couldn't ask for a better kept, well cleaned cottage.
Mrs Beatty
June 2015
It was a lovely surprise when we first arrived, it was WOW, the photo's on the web do not do it justice. The weather for us was not perfect but The Piggery certainly was. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and with exceptional quality furnishings etc. A truly well loved cottage and a credit to the owners attention to detail. We will recommend to all and return ourselves.
Mr Austin
June 2015
Having been to The Piggery before and found it to be a little gem my opinion has not changed, other than the gem shines brighter. The owners have done a marvellous job of making our stay as comfortable and homely as possible. Well done.
Mr Gibb
May 2015
This accommodation was the best I have ever experienced. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable with all the fixtures, fittings and equipment of the highest quality. Very highly recommended.

A delightful property which was tastefully furnished and well provided. Attention to detail has been given to everything from drawers of tea towels to latches on doors. It delights the eye, inside and out.
Mrs Price

We liked everything and didn't want to come home!
Mr Coffey
October 2014
A beautiful cottage, it has been decorated and equipped to a high standard and the attention to detail is obvious. It is very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights here. Our toddler also loved it and there were plenty of toys provided that kept her amused while we were indoors. Small welcoming touches by the owner were appreciated. Only wish we could have stayed longer and look forward to returning in the summer.
Mr Bagott
October 2014
The Piggery was a fantastic property. We are already thinking of going back there next year. Just the right distance from Whitby to be away from the crowds.
Mrs Bond

Absolutely love this cottage, it has everything you could want, nothing was left out. It is in a fabulous location on top of a hill so sitting on the patio watching the sunset is an absolute pleasure. It was very comfortable and homely, my husband and I would definitely recommend The Piggery, cant wait to go back!
Miss Tunnicliffe

An excellent base for our walking holiday. The owner left a lovely welcome pack for us and all amenities were provided.
August 2014
What a delightful conversion. The views down to Whitby over the fields were wonderful. We will go back as much as possible, only the long journey prevents us going more often.
Mr Dougal
March 2014
This was by far the nicest cottage we have stayed in, the cottage was decorated to a very high standard and extremely comfortable. Our 3 year old daughter cried when we had to leave. We are already thinking of returning to The Piggery.
Mr Brooks

Peaceful, convenient, well-positioned. Very comfortable, everything catered for.
December 2013
Excellent accommodation with everything you need whether you use it as a base to explore the North Yorkshire coast or just to relax. The owners always make you feel very welcome and ensure that everything is there to make your stay something that you will always remember. If you have forgotten anything even a toothbrush you can bet there will be one there for you. We have stayed here many times and will return again and again. In the village of Sleights you have a Botham's bakery which sells a large array of excellent cakes cookies and bread. There is also a butchers, a grocery store and a fish and chip shop. Hope to return early next year.

Mrs Snelling

The Piggery is ideal accommodation if you just want to relax, or if you want to use it as a base to explore the surrounding areas. We have always received a warm welcome every time we stay at the cottage, and would strongly recommend it to our family or anyone who wants to find a peaceful relaxing holiday, as we say 'a home away from home'. A beautiful cottage.
Mrs Ayres

The cottage felt and looked comfortable right from the time we arrived. The furnishings and décor were tasteful, and the facilities excellent.

Spectacular views. Very quiet. It was very high specification, and had everything we needed. It is located only 4 miles from Whitby, close to Robin Hoods Bay ,and the lovely beach at Sansend. Cannot wait to go back, and possibly stay for two weeks instead of one. We had a fantastic holiday.

We enjoyed every minute of our holiday. The accommodation was excellent and the owners were more than helpful. The Piggery is like a home from home except it was more peaceful than being at home. The surroundings are beautiful and we had deer in the garden every morning. It was in easy access to shops and Whitby. We would just like to thank the owners for the use of their beautiful well fitted out cottage. We will be back next year.
