“Gorgeous country get away!”
Reviewed 27 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Still at the Piggery as I write this. We have had a lovely 24 hours relaxing in a gorgeous setting away from our hectic lives. Jenny is lovely and welcoming. The Piggery has everything you would need. It is well stocked...even a tin of dog food for an emergency. We will be backed to catch our breath soon.

“Everything you could possibly want from a relaxing get away in the country”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We arrived on Christmas eve and left of the 27th
It is the 2nd time we have done this and it is just perfect!
The couple that run the piggery are so lovely, you get absolute privacy but at the same time you know they are close by should you need anything, it is a very warm welcome.
It is lovely and warm inside you can use the heater or the log fire there is even extra blankets and dressing gowns provided so there is no chance of being anything but cosy.
The bed is super comfortable with high quality bedding there were only 2 of us but it could sleep more if you converted the sofa.
Bare in mind the stairs going up to the bedroom are not suitable for everyone as there are no hand rails.
There is so much included, cupboards are stocked and there is alcohol which you can pay for at the end, we just brought our own. In terms of appliances there is everything you need I cooked up a roast as well as other dishes with ease.
Lovely shower with shampoo and gel if you forgot to bring that kind of stuff.
Best of all so many little homely touches - scented candles, large DVD collection, fresh flowers even a board game
There is also a lovely seated area by the river, again very private, despite being December we were determined to use it, so had coffee on the deck one morning. So relaxing.
Since it was our second visit we decided to get out and about, we had a delicious meal at the local pub less than a miles walk, went to the village to the village church and had a brilliant hike where we saw lots of dear, horses and rabbits.
I did go for a jog early one morning and being a city girl that level of seclusion was certainly a new experience

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Piggery is even better than it looks, and it looks amazing! I came to rest and relax with my sister. I bet we both looked five years younger when we left! Jenny and Paul were super hosts, very friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. I hope to come back for a romantic visit with my husband.

“Re-visiting Heaven for the 3rd time!”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

This was our 3rd stay at The Piggery and I can say that we'll definitely be back for more! What else can I say that I already haven't said about this slice of Sussex-based heaven? Plenty, it seems! Living and working in London, you can feel the stress oozing out of you from the moment you step into the garden of this perfect haven of peace and tranquility. We had a couple of sunny days and a few wet ones. Well, it wouldn't be August without a spot of rain! But even that isn't a deterrent at The Piggery. There is so much to see and do in the area including woodland walks, farms and abundant historical sites of interest. Coming back to a relaxing drink on the decking by the stream is the icing on the cake after a busy day out. Although we opted for self-catering The Piggery is well stocked with basics such as tea, coffee, cereals and condiments. There is even a tempting mini bar! In wetter weather we enjoyed indoor visits to historical sites and 2 excellent pub meals at the nearby Hurstwood in Uckfield and The Cat in West Hoathly. Both are within easy driving distance. The Piggery is such a relaxing and homely space that staying in on a rainy evening is a cosy and welcoming experience. It is well stocked with interesting reading material as well as an excellent range of DVDs. Waking to the sounds of birds and a running stream is also a real treat for us city dwellers. However, despite the amenities and the utterly magical location, the real credit has to go to the hosts Jenny and Paul. Their extremely hospitable and easy-going nature make one's stay complete. Helpful, accommodating and so knowledgeable with regards to local information we cannot say thank you enough to them for letting us enjoy these precious breaks at their wonderful Piggery. We'll be back (if they'll have us!)

What can you say about perfection? After a long, hot journey, The Piggery is utopia, the perfect refuge to find calm against traffic chaos and a busy life. Comfortable and inviting we very quickly found ourselves relaxed and at ease. Jenny and Paul are very hospitable and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation is delightful, as are the surrounding gardens and countryside. We drifted into a blissful sleep lulled by the gentle sounds of rain dripping from the tress and woke refreshed. The breakfast was perfect, top quality produce and not over the top portion wise, we could not have wished for any more and it kept us fulfilled until the evening. We will be back and would recommend this place 100%

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Piggery for two nights and had a really relaxing time. Jenny and Paul were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. We enjoyed drinks by the stream and lit the fire in the cottage to make it cosy in the morning. It is in a great location where you can go for walks in Ashdown Forest or visit the local pub.
We would very much like to stay here again.
