The Piggery is an annexe attached to the back of the farmhouse, it has its own front door with parking on the drive in front of it.
The accommodation has a small farmhouse kitchen with a cosy breakfast area, worktop, fridge and a combi microwave/convection oven to cook breakfast and simple meals.
There is a kettle,cafetiere, teapot and a complimentary tray of coffees and teas and in the cupboards are crockery and cutlery, a toaster and panini maker/grill.
The bedroom has views down the garden, through the smallholding and to the Yorkshire Wolds, there are hens contentedly clucking about on the field and you may even be able to see a pig or two.
There is a flat screen television in the bedroom with netflix, youtube and iplayer.
There is a new orthopaedic mattress on the double bed which is always made up with fresh, crisp clean bedding, towels are provided and also a basket of complimentary toiletries.                                                                         The adjoining bathroom has a spacious shower with a rainfall shower head.                                                                                                                                      


The village of Bolton is 10 miles from York, there are buses from the village into the city centre or the park and ride is a good choice as York can be very busy and parking expensive.
Pocklington is a small market town 3 miles in the other direction with a good range of shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

The nightly rate for a stay at The Piggery is 70 to include a breakfast tray for two with cereal, croissants, yoghurt, fruit and orange juice.

We are also listed on booking.com where you can make an instant booking but the rate is 75 per night, have a read of our previous guests reviews, we are currently rated as 'exceptional' with a score of 9.7 and have been awarded one of their guest review awards.

We want you to enjoy your stay with us and are happy to provide special occasion treats for a little extra should you wish to surprise a loved one i.e a bottle of bubbly or fresh flowers in the room.

We are very happy to take guests down the field in the mornings to feed the pigs and show them the smallholding, there are sometimes fresh free range eggs available to collect too.
Our animals are very friendly and the kune kune pigs always up for a scratch and maybe an apple, Florence and Peggy will even 'sit' for an apple.
Winnie the golden retriever will no doubt come to say hello and Phoebe the tabby cat may be sunning herself somewhere too.

So please call or email us to find out more or check  
availability.

UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!

 February 2017

 
In November 2015 we welcomed our first visitors at The Piggery, our very first guests were met with a bottle of champagne and chocolates to celebrate its opening.
Last year was full of bookings with guests from such far flung places such as Chili, Indonesia and Australia, it was great to meet them all and hear about their travels.
There were visitors who enjoyed coming down with us to meet and feed the animals, those who held a chicken and scratched a pig or two and there were those who just wanted to cosy up and enjoy the peace.
There were the lovely spanish honeymooners who left us a box of thank you chocolates, the valentines day guests who cosied up with a bottle of wine and a view of the snow on the Yorkshire Wolds, not to forget the guests who escaped here time and time again.
The visitors book is full of great comments with everybody saying how much they enjoyed the warm and comfortable accommodation, the fresh free range eggs, feeding the pigs, the beautiful setting and our hospitality.
Amazingly they all scored it very highly on Booking.com, with us having a consistent overall score of  9.7 'exceptional', so a big thank you to all of the guests who gave us such generous feedback.
We noticed also that we were regularly accommodating wedding guests (and newlyweds) from the nearby Barmbyfield Barns, 2 1/2 miles away, an absolutely stunning place to get married, so they have now kindly added us to their website's recommended accommodation list.
Here's hoping 2017 is as busy and sucessful for The Piggery.
