About this cottage

Pigsty Cottage is a spacious apartment within an Orangery, its a lovely private place to stay . Well equipped, with a top quality kingsize bed and mattress, secure parking and electric gates. A Lovely rural location, stunning gardens. Great for visits to Bath, Stonehenge, Salisbury and Devizes


The Orangery is set in attractive gardens providing peace and tranquility for your stay. Light, airy and private from the main house it provides a perfect retreat. Comfy sofas and a fully equipped kitchen help make you feel at home! There is under floor heating for those chillier days, a large bathroom with a walk in shower with two lovely bathrobes for use during your stay. In the bathroom you will find emergency essentials - just in case you have forgotten something!



We've put a couple of lovely wicker garden chairs outside your door, which overlook some colourful flower beds and a working vegetable garden. The perfect spot for breakfast on a summers day!



We live in the main house and will always welcome visitors if we are in residence. The Orangery is very private from the main house, so if you want to come and go without having to chat - that's fine with us too!



Other things to note:



The property is not well suited for disabled access.

There is a well behaved friendly dog living in the main house that you may meet at some point.

We have a large garden, and work starts around 8am on a Monday morning to keep it in tip top shape - so we hope this doesn't disturb you!

    Very beautiful cottage and property

    Very beautiful cottage and property. Spacious living area. Large, well-equipped kitchen. Bedroom was cozy and warm. Excellent communication with host, who was very flexible in meeting us even though we arrived later in the evening than expected. Could not have asked for a better experience. We hope to return!

    Top Notch Cottage

    Got to say this was a brilliant cottage in a great location and hosts were fantastic. On arrival Steve met us and showed us around the property, even showing my husband around the paddock where he would be able to go for a morning run. Steve and Lizzie had also left us loads of goodies which was a real nice surprise. Would defo recommend this cottage to stay, is convenient to visit Bath, Bristol and other locations nearby. Particularly loved Castle Combe and Caen Hill Locks which was recommended by Steve. The Barge Inn is also worth a visit for drinks and meal and is not far from the cottage. Thanks Steve and Lizzie for such a wonderful stay and allowing Chris to use your hose so many times to wash our car 😂

    Beautiful property and grounds

    Pigsty Cottage is a lovely, bright, spacious, clean property in a beautiful setting. Had a very peaceful few days here, everything you need is in the cottage and the host was great. Would definitely recommend.
