5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Had a great stay here for a few weeks whilst working in Taunton. The accommodation is lovely and quaint and the owners couldn't be more helpful. We would recommend this rental to anyone and would love to return if working in the area again. Chickens made us laugh every morning - priceless.

Management response:

Thanks for your review. Very pleased to hear the chickens entertained you, they are good fun aren't they!

This has been one of the best stays we have had! WELL worth the money. The pigsty is lovely and cosy, with everything you need and very central, allowing you to explore all of Somerset. And the hamper of local produce at a small extra cost made it an extra special week. Fantastic!

Management response:

Thanks very much for your kind comments. We do try to provide a super getaway location, at an affordable cost. Very pleased to hear that you liked the breakfast hamper as well.

About the neighbourhood
The Blackdown Hills is a range of hills along the Somerset-Devon border in south-western England, which was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is a very quiet and rural part of the country. Much of the land is used for farming. There are many different types of habitat in the area which means that the area supports a really diverse wildlife population. This includes bats, otters, lizards, dormice, kingfishers, barn owls and nightjars.<BR><BR>Despite the rural setting, The Old Pigsty is in a very good location to access Taunton and Wellington (both approximately 15 minutes drive). There are also some very good local pubs. The walking, cycling and horse riding in the area is outstanding. There are many footpaths and bridlepaths, but also the lanes... more
