  • Mr Thomas

    “Yes: There is a very significant leak to guttering where it has a joint immediately above porch.”


    Waterfall! The front door looks scruffy because the door furniture ie brass would benefit from a polish. Some of the seals to double glazed window units have gone and stay misted up. Nowhere to hang clothes in shower room Electric fire really noisy Level of lighting in lounge very poor.

The property

Situated 3 miles from the historic market town of Wincanton, The Piggery is a beautiful barn conversion situated in a sheltered shared courtyard with stunning views across the Blackmore Vale.

This charming holiday home is set all over ground floor and is ideal for families and friends looking to escape to the countryside and sample a taste of what the area has to offer.

With two well-appointed bedrooms offering ample storage space and a neutral colour scheme, it is a lovely set up for those holidaying with their kids.

Each comes with bedside tables ad lamps so you can unwind with a book among a soothing ambience before bed.

There is also a family bathroom and shower room, so you don't have to worry about queuing in the mornings to use the facilities.

After an adventurous day exploring the local sights, return to this humble adobe and relax in the lounge before the fire, choose a book from the shelf or perhaps you might like to get competitive with a board game around the coffee table.

Those musically inclined can get everyone in the mood for a song with the grand piano set in one corner of the room.

The traditional-style kitchen is well-appointed for rustling up something home-cooked and delicious, perfect for getting the family around the dinner table to catch up on the day's events.

There is a small lawned area at the rear of the property which you are welcome to use, but please respect the privacy of the neighbours and we request no ball games.
