  • "What an amazing place with such lovely hosts."

    Made to feel extremely welcome right from the start. Accommodation was comfy, clean, and very modern with a super lovely shower. The views, WOW! I was so lucky to see lambs being born and found Spencer so interesting as he delivered his talk about tge lambing process. I certainly will be booking again as this is now my most favourite place in the UK.

    It was warm & cosy, immaculately clean and thoughtfully equipped and furnished, with fabulous views from both the picnic area and inside.

    There were chickens and their chicks, geese and peacock and peahen to entertain in the next door enclosure! Lovely tea/coffee/icecream room with delicious scones and cakes.

    The Piggery is delightful with everything you need and the views out of the window are priceless.The owners are absolutely lovely and welcoming and also a big shout out to the lovely young woman who works in the ice cream parlour who is outstanding in her service and warm and helpful personality. The homemade ice cream with so many different flavours to choose from is the best I have ever tasted.The farm itself is fantastic with an array of animals and there are gorgeous long walks which can be taken directly from the property. I loved my stay and there are many lovely places to visit. It really is an area of outstanding beauty and was very good for the soul. I would highly recommend this heavenly place. A big thank you to the team who made me so welcome and gave me the chance to enjoy the very best that the English countryside has to offer.

  • "Myself and my girlfriend have been fans of Blaze Farm for a couple of years now."

    Katy and the family who run the farm are really friendly, they will quite happily stand and chat despite being very busy. We have stayed in the Swallows Nest property in the past which was nice and secluded. However the views from the Piggerey are something else, you can quite literally lie in bed and look out at the hills and the scenery. There are plenty of animals on the farm that are really approachable and you can even feed them. They also make homemade icecream on the farm which is delicious, there is also a selection of cakes and sandwiches on offer all at reasonable prices. The farm is honestly one of mine and my girlfriends favourite places!

    The standard was very high, the Owner and staff were lovely and the views outstanding. The only negative for us was the lack of wi fi and phone signal. It was available outside and up steps which in the summer would be ok but not too good in February. Thanks.

    Location was convenient for walking and the places we planned to visit. It has the most wonderful view of the valley and setting sun from the dining table. We ate in and ate out locally using recommendations from the owner, which were good. Kitchen has a dishwasher, so no washing up was required!

The property

Sutton 5 miles.

The Piggery is a delightful studio-style, detached cottage resting on the award-winning working Blaze Farm on the outskirts of Wildboarclough near Sutton in Cheshire.

Boasting exceptional surroundings within the Peak District National Park and breath-taking views, The Piggery is a wonderful dwelling for a couple seeking a country hideaway.

The Piggery is set back from the main farm, so you can park-up near your peaceful new home and be greeted by a charming front garden with picnic bench.

Step into the open-plan living space, where you can conjure up a mouth-watering feast for your loved one, ready to enjoy at the dining table for two or alfresco in the garden whilst you soak up the panoramic countryside views.

After dinner, snuggle up on the sofa and select your favourite film from the Smart TV as the evening’s entertainment.

As your eyes grow heavy, climb into the sumptuous king-size bed to catch your rest ahead of another adventure filled day.

In the morning, wake-up tired eyes with a refreshing shower, before setting out to explore.

In the morning, explore your surroundings, where on the farm you will find a welcoming café and ice cream parlour, famed for its Hilly Billy Ice Cream, open Wednesday to Sunday, perfect for indulging in a freshly baked scone, ploughmans lunch or locally made oatcakes before heading out to explore.

Many nature trails are right outside your door, where you can take leisurely strolls while taking in the stunning views of the surrounding countryside and even witness the springtime lambing season or the summertime shearing of the sheep!

Head into the local village where you can take part in gin tasting at Forrest Gin Distillery, or go for a meal at The Rose & Crown.

The Peak District National Park, where you're situated, offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor pursuits, including hiking trails, cave explorations, rock climbing, a forest, and a castle.

The Macclesfield Silk Museum, Armoury Towers, and the excellent Macclesfield Golf Club await you next in the thriving town.

Visit Buxton, where you can visit Poole's Cave, Buxton Museum & Art Gallery and Solomon's Temple, or drive to Bakewell, where you can enjoy the exquisite Bakewell Pudding, and tour the esteemed Chatsworth House, where you can see the lavish interiors and gardens.

Treat your loved one to a getaway they’ll never forget at The Piggery.
