Description

Boasting a heated indoor swimming pool and en-suite facilities to all bedrooms, this converted barn is comfortable and well-equipped.

Just 3 miles from the sea at West Bay, this superb property boasts its own indoor heated swimming pool, a garden with patio, and en-suite facilities to all bedrooms. Sympathetically converted from a former barn, it has been very well equipped to offer comfortable holiday accommodation for up to six people. This is an ideal base for exploring both Dorset’s lovely coastline and beautiful countryside. Ancient Bridport (2 miles) has Saxon origins and was once an important rope-making centre. The amount of space needed to make rope is said to account for the town’s exceptionally broad streets, now the base for two popular weekly markets. There is a good choice of shops, a cinema and a new sports centre. A mile further on, West Bay has a harbour where fishing trips and rowing boat hire are available. The stunning Chesil Beach runs from here and stretches 17 miles along the coast to Weymouth. There are several other good beaches within easy reach of The Old Piggeries – at Charmouth, Seatown and, slightly further, at the charming and popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis, which offers plenty of attractions for visitors. Walkers can enjoy meandering country footpaths passing through tranquil countryside, or more energetic hikes on the coastal path along the tops of towering cliffs, where the views are breathtaking. There are plenty of good country inns to offer refreshment. Inland, there are many picturesque villages to explore, with their pretty thatched roofs and interesting histories. Near the little town of Chard is Hornsbury Mill with its rural life displays, and beautiful Forde Abbey and gardens. Nearby is Crewkerne, an old-fashioned market town, with many bookshops and second-hand shops to explore. Dorchester is 7 miles. Golf and fishing nearby. Riding school 5 miles. Shops 2 miles.

All on ground floor: Living room with French doors. Dining room/kitchen with French doors. Utility room. 3 bedrooms: 1 double, 2 twin all with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet. Separate toilet.

Electricity by £1 coin meter. Oil central heating £65 May-September (£75 October-April). Bed linen included. Towel hire. Travel cot. High chair. Freeview TV. Microwave. Washing machine. Tumble dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Payphone. Garden with patio and furniture. Parking. Indoor heated swimming pool (7.5m x 3m). Couples and family bookings only. No smoking.

    One of the best well equipped self catering places I've been to. Beds were comfy, double garage to park your car in. Lovely big kitchen and lounge. Swimming pool was great and warm. Our 2 girls were in there before breakfast most mornings!

    A nice cottage that suited the three of us. Pool was great but the roads leading up to the cottage were poor. Would also suggest moving the electric meter down so you can easily see how much is in there if this is the way to continue with payment.

    Stunning property, I would stay again. You are left completely alone to enjoy your holiday. Very private. Great pool, plenty of beautiful outside space. I would definitely stay again. My only bug bear, was there was an ant problem in the kitchen. If the kids dropped a crumb after dinner an army of ants would find it! Apart from that it was a wonderful place and I will go back at some point!

    we stayed in late april with 2 young children. the house was ideal and pool great for us. The location works well too - in the countryside but close to local amenities

    I do the odd holiday now and then but in the last few years, I would have to say this place is exceptional and a must for anyone looking to take a break from a hectic life style. The area it is self is aware from any busy roads and middle of the country side but a drives away from the bench with a supermarket near by. The property is superb, in the layout, to the features and the amount of space. All rooms very clean and tidy with a nice beds. Great for families with children as kitchen and living space is large plus with the pool, this provides hours for fun for child and adults. Everyone really enjoyed the holiday and it was a great place to stay. It was truly relaxing experience with the green areas, fresh air and daily swim! I would definitely visit the Old piggeries again. A big thanks to the owners, who are very helpful and nice who made the stay great.

    We had a great stay. The accommodation was bigger than we expected and all well equipped. I know other reviews have mentioned that it needs updating/modernising but that didn’t bother us, the place was clean and had everything we needed. The kids loved the pool although the one downside is that there isn’t much space in the pool room to sit on the side and just watch. There isn’t really anything in walking distance but it’s just a short drive to bridport and west bay and it’s a great location to explore the Jurassic coast from. We’d definitely think about staying again.

    Found the cottage to be comfortable but tired. Mattresses need replacing, getting a little worn in places. Quilts on bed very heavy and if you have the heating on you don't need them but you don't have a choice as no blankets available. Some of the patio doors were hard to relock once opened and some took two of use to relock. Overall had a good holiday: swimming pool lovely and warm, like a warm bath. Would rebook despite above annoyances. if like a morning paper you need to drive for 5 minutes to Bridport to the local garage and Morrison is the largest, cheapest supermarket. There is absolutely no local shops within walking distance to the property.

    Absolutely fabulous. Beautiful place, lovely surroundings. Quite remote so need to drive to places. Swimming pool like a warm bath, very relaxing. Recommend eating at Spyways Pub 5 mins drive. Food best we have ever eaten and owners very friendly and inviting. Owners of Old Piggery very friendly and helpful and provided milk, tea, biscuits etc to get us started. Only minus was mobile phone reception which was virtually non existent due to location. Wi-Fi wasn't too bad.

    We enjoyed our holiday, especially the pool. Very friendly, helpful owner. Drawback was the elec. meter and making sure we had £1 coins. Spent nearly £20 for the week. Oven on once for half an hour and dishwasher used 4 times. Also hire of towels £2 per person for one bath and one hand towel. Would have appreciated an extra one of each. Both elec and towels should be included for guests convenience even if overall price is slightly increased. Double bed mattress extremely hard but I realise this is personal choice.
