  • "Lovely, very clean and spaceous property."

    Liked the lounge upstairs, as we where able to watch the wildlife with the binoulars provided. Owners very friendly and helpful.

  • "Hellen and Richard have been wonderful hosts."

    They are close at hand if you have any questions. The Pigsty is a home away from home. The kitchen is well equipped and with a supermarket within a few minutes drive, I have been able to cater as if I was in my own kitchen. Although I am here for work it makes an ideal base for travel around Cornwall.
