    The Old Piggery is a very nice modern cottage. However, My Wife and I stayed over the Easter Weekend which has gone down as one of the wettest and coldest in Devon in recent Years. Our problem was that the heating system is set and locked on a timer which cannot be regulated by visiting guests. We did email the owner who made a slight adjustment which made only a minimal difference, hence, we had to by two bags of logs and a bag of kindling to keep us warm of an evening. There also seems to be a low voltage system throughout the cottage which makes charging your mobile phones, toothbrush, etc difficult. All and all a nice week in Devon

    Superb accommodation set on the edge of Sidbury with lovely country views. It was spotlessly clean and had absolutely everything you could need whilst on holiday. Great location to explore the east coast of Devon and I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful converted piggery.

    The old piggery is a beautiful conversion of an old building. The setting was superb, with lots of rabbits and cows in view from its many windows. The cottage is very well equipped, very clean and comfortable. We were lucky with very warm weather and were able to sit on the patio with a lovely view. We would certainly recommend the property and would like to return in the future.
