  • “Really nice accommodation and the owner was friendly and helpful.”

    Nice area of the country. Suited our needs. Only advice is that you should follow the owners directions to get there - our satnav took us up a very narrow road with grass up the middle of it

The property

This beautifully converted studio, constructed from local Devon stone, is ideally located in the midst of idyllic green fields and rolling farmland, just one mile south of High Bickington village and 12 miles from Barnstaple, situated at the head of Devon's picturesque Taw Valley.

Finished throughout in rustic materials that suit its country cottage appeal, but with a high-quality finish, this little jewel box of a studio offers the perfect romantic rural getaway for a couple or a base for the traveller who wants to explore the delights of the Taw Valley and Exmoor.

With open plan accommodation all laid out on one level, you enter the studio from the fully paved courtyard that offers private parking for 1 car.

The open plan accommodation is flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows, and a king-size bed and a pair of Ercol chairs perfectly capture the cosy boho cottage feel, while the fully-equipped kitchen area has everything you need to rustle up anything from the perfect espresso to a delicious dinner using local produce.

The spacious walk-in shower is a generous double size, and there is a DAB radio and plenty of power points for your laptop.

Books and WiFi are both available.

This little hideaway is all about getting away from it all, and enjoying the lovely views across the meadows.

Piggery Studio has its own flagstone patio, so you can literally jump out of bed and enjoy your breakfast alfresco, gazing out over the fields of grazing sheep and enjoying the peace and quiet that only the countryside can offer.

The fully enclosed and private garden offers a calm and quiet oasis for a glass of wine or to enjoy the local beer, cider and perry as you watch a spectacular sunset over the valley.

The nearby village of High Bickington offers all amenities, including two highly rated pubs with excellent food and a range of beers.

With so much to explore on your doorstep, Piggery Studio is ideal for a romantic weekend getaway or as a base to explore everything that this beautiful area of North Devon has to offer.
