A warm welcome greets you at ‘The Pigsty’, which is a self-catering, detached ground floor and open plan style accommodation. Staying in The pigsty @ Hollycombe Ford you receive a free breakfast welcome pack, including local goodies, to get you started on your first morning. The Pigsty offers a patio seating and breakfast area. Our aim is to provide a friendly relaxed atmosphere where you can come and go at your own leisure. We are in Whiddon Down on the North edge of Dartmoor.
The stable door opens over a small step, into a room with a comfortable two seater-settee, 32 inch TV, infra-red heating and a mini breakfast table and stools. The mini desk area has Wifi with a lead to link direct to your laptop should you wish. We are rural and can not be responsible for fluctuations in the Wifi provision.
At the far end of this room you find a full sized double bed, hooks and hangers, cupboards and a useful over bed reading light.
Windows look out onto the shared garden where you can watch an abundance of wild birds and the occasional deer. There is a patio area here for you to enjoy breakfast in the open Devon air, whilst relaxing to the sound of the natural watercourse marking our boundry.
There is a step down into the kitchen area which is equipped with a halogen hob, fridge, sink, microwave, toaster and kettle. There are cupboards and drawers to house your self- catering provisions. You will find all cutlery, crockery, pots and pans provided.
The bathroom is compact but functional. It has a sink with over mirror, a toilet and a shower. The shower is fitted with a seat that can be pulled down or left in its folded position. This cubicle has a restricted head height so if you are taller than 5ft 10” you may need to use the seat! Towels, hair dryer, iron and ironing board provided. Please note, we have normal sockets but no shaver socket.
