In November 2015 we welcomed our first visitors at The Piggery, our very
first guests were met with a bottle of champagne and chocolates to
celebrate its opening.
Last year was full of bookings with guests from such far flung places
such as Chili, Indonesia and Australia, it was great to meet them all
and hear about their travels.
There were visitors who enjoyed coming down with us to meet and feed
the animals, those who held a chicken and scratched a pig or two and
there were those who just wanted to cosy up and enjoy the peace.
There were the lovely spanish honeymooners who left us a box of thank
you chocolates, the valentines day guests who cosied up with a bottle
of wine and a view of the snow on the Yorkshire Wolds, not to forget
the guests who escaped here time and time again.
The visitors book is full of great comments with everybody saying how
much they enjoyed the warm and comfortable accommodation, the fresh
free range eggs, feeding the pigs, the beautiful setting and our
Amazingly they all scored it very highly on Booking.com, with us
having a consistent overall score of 9.7 'exceptional', so a big thank you
to all of the guests who gave us such generous feedback.
noticed also that we were regularly accommodating wedding guests (and
newlyweds) from the nearby Barmbyfield Barns, 2 1/2 miles away, an
absolutely stunning place to get married, so they have now kindly added
us to their website's recommended accommodation list.
Here's hoping 2017 is as busy and sucessful for The Piggery.
See you soon xx
