Cottage lovely and clean but bed takes up 80% of the room and no where comfortable to sit.

The piggery is in a quiet pleasant location with easy access to Camber Sands and The lovely town of Rye. It is a small cosy property just right for a couple.

Jos Piggery is a truly magical place to stay. It is situated within magnificent countryside with far reaching views from the property. The Piggery is a light and airy retreat- with very comfortable pillows. I really hope we can come back one day for another stay. Jo the owner is lovely, the perfect host.

We had a wonderful time in the piggery. Jo was incredibly welcoming and helpful and generous with her time and advice on things to do and places to go. The barn was cosy and had a well appointed kitchen with everything you need. We stayed with our 1 year old, which although a bit snug, was a great base to go off and explore the beaches, local walksRead more and steam train! We had a lovely meal at the Ewe and Lamb 5mins drive down the road. The barn is in a lovely rural setting with great view! Hide

Lovely reception with very nice treats for guest and dog... Everything spotlessly clean and more spaceous than photographs suggest... the bedcouch is clearly a compromise... Garden and grounds are gorgeous. Splendid location for exploration of the South-east

Reviewed by Katharine 7th May 2019

Absolutely beautiful place, woke up to rabbits and other wildlife with spectacular views. Joanna our host was very welcoming with information and breakfast things for our stay. She gave us full use of the grounds, fire pit & logs. Our toddler settled in immediately. Well definitely recommend The Pigsty to friends and family.
