Great place to stay and to explore Devon. Well laid out accommodation and very comfortable. The welcome pack was gratefully received and the hot tub was a great addition, although we found it not to be that easy to use, as it eats up the logs very quickly, for very little warmth. The roads around need careful access, especially when the Harvest traRead morectors and trailers are rushing everywhere, but it was expected in this rural ideal. Hide

The Pigsty has been converted into a lovely holiday accommodation and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is so peaceful and the owners were very friendly and helpful. It was like a home from home and the kitchen is very well equipped. The bedrooms and en-suites are very nice and well thought out. We do a lot of self catering holidays and Read morecould not really fault this accommodation. We will no doubt return in the future. Hide

Very comfortable and finished to a high standard. Owners were very approachable and quick to respond to any queries. The location lends itself to peace and serenity but adequately placed for visiting other areas with the M5 within 3 miles. Hope to return in the very near future!

An amazing place to stay. Spotlessly clean and really comfortable and well equipped. We loved the Pigsty. Just loved it. The hot tub was a real highlight.
