Lovingly converted stylish holiday cottage which provides a special couple’s getaway in the glorious Kent countryside. Perfect for exploring the great pubs and restaurants on the doorstep.

Enjoy a cosy getaway with the two you love most – your partner and your pup – at this delightful cottage. The former piggery sleeps two, creating the perfect romantic escape in the lush Kent countryside. Meander the many footpaths and cycle routes on the doorstep, play fetch in the extensive garden, and toast marshmallows around the fire pit as the sun sets.

Embrace studio-style living at this idyllic cottage, which by day is a great spot to unwind and enjoy the view and by night turns into a snug haven as you transform the sofa into a comfortable double bed. Exposed wooden beams and a striking brick feature open fire paired with the modest decor, create a contemporary countryside aesthetic that’s as welcoming as it is stylish. Savour an intimate dinner for two (or three, if you count Fido!) at the dining table or outside in the garden, which is shared with the owner’s property. There is private parking available for one car.

Thanks to its setting in the beautiful High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and just 20 miles from the Kent Downs, you and your faithful hound will have a ball exploring the countryside, with ancient routeways, wooded rolling hills, and historic castles to discover. Visit Bodiam Castle (10 miles), where your dog can have a stroll around the grounds, or Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and Camber Castle (9.5 miles). Camber Sands beach (11 miles) is home to the only sand dunes in East Sussex, perfect for tiring out an energetic pup!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Jos Piggery is a truly magical place to stay. It is situated within magnificent countryside with far reaching views from the property. The Piggery is a light and airy retreat- with very comfortable pillows. I really hope we can come back one day for another stay. Jo the owner is lovely, the perfect host.

We had a wonderful time in the piggery. Jo was incredibly welcoming and helpful and generous with her time and advice on things to do and places to go. The barn was cosy and had a well appointed kitchen with everything you need. We stayed with our 1 year old, which although a bit snug, was a great base to go off and explore the beaches, local walksRead more and steam train! We had a lovely meal at the Ewe and Lamb 5mins drive down the road. The barn is in a lovely rural setting with great view! Hide

Lovely reception with very nice treats for guest and dog... Everything spotlessly clean and more spaceous than photographs suggest... the bedcouch is clearly a compromise... Garden and grounds are gorgeous. Splendid location for exploration of the South-east

Reviewed by Katharine 7th May 2019

Absolutely beautiful place, woke up to rabbits and other wildlife with spectacular views. Joanna our host was very welcoming with information and breakfast things for our stay. She gave us full use of the grounds, fire pit & logs. Our toddler settled in immediately. Well definitely recommend The Pigsty to friends and family.
