“Absolutely Perfect!”

My partner and I have just stayed at The Pigsty for a weekend away (Friday-Sunday) and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

When we first arrived, we we're so impressed with everything that we just automatically knew that we were going to have an incredible weekend away. Everything in the property was superb, we even had cakes made for us! What a great start!

We both agreed that what we loved best about The Pigsty was, it was nice and private and in the countryside, but not too far from the nearest village and the Mill House Restaurant (Which buy the way, is an absolute must at least once, regardless of where you are staying or are just passing through)

I can't rate The Pigsty highly enough, it was extremely clean, very well looked after, the perfect size and the private garden really topped it off for us. Overall it was an extremely good weekend and we have both agreed that we will be going back in the future.

I'd definitely recommend The Pigsty and i hope after reading this, you book a couple of nights there too, you won't be disappointed!

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The hosts were both there to welcome us to the Pigsty. It was exactly as I hoped it would be - and more. The views from the rear of the property were stunning and the peace and quiet was something else. The pub down the road (walking distance in daylight but not to be recommended after dark!) called The Millhouse was so good we booked a second meal there before we came home. Our favourite place to visit was Alford. The Pigsty was clean and tidy and had plenty of room and there is a patio to sit out on and a lawn for children or a dog to play on.

Stayed at the pigsty from 16th to 20th of July.the accommodation was great plenty of room with an enclosed garden for our dog to run around in.everything we needed was provided in the rooms including some milk to get us started and lindsey had even baked us some yummy cupcakes! The location was great in a little village and was so quiet and peaceful but only a 20 minute drive to the beach.we enjoyed watching the sunset behind the pigsty too.will definitely recommend this lovely cottage to family and friends for a relaxing break.

“Wonderful short stay”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Sitting in the secure garden in the sunshine while our dogs explored safely was a wonderful way to spend our evening at the Pigsty. Lovely, well thought out layout inside with all the essentials you needed and more beside. Owners were very friendly and accommodating and the tea, coffee and milk left for us was a lovely touch. Will definitely recommend to others!

“An absolute highlight of our holiday”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

In Australia, when initially researching for places to stay in the region during our trip to England, I was immediately drawn to this cottage, simply because of it's name - 'The Pigsty' - I was amused by the choice of name and the photo's depicting the cottage - it was inspired.

What is depicted in the photo's and what you get when arriving at the property are exactly that - and I did a little song and dance when I settled in to my new surrounds - The Pigsty is an absolute gem in a beautiful part of the Lincolnshire Wolds, I couldn't believe our luck in staying in such a lovely cottage in such peaceful surrounds.

The hosts, Chris & Lindsey are extremely welcoming, greeting you like old friends and they really do care about ensuring that your stay is as comfortable as possible, you even get the impression that the cottage really is a labour of love and they want to share it with those who want to experience and appreciate living in the region.

Now down to brass tacks (as the English would say) and what do you get for your money:
- The cottage is extremely clean and modern and immaculate in appearance
- A full kitchen with no compromise of amenities - I comfortably cooked a full roast dinner for both of use on our last night at the cottage (have photos to prove, but just need to work out how to upload to this review)
- Large enough to cater for a family of up to 5 or 6
- Separate large bedroom with double bed and heaps of room to move around
- By reading the visitors book, it appears that dogs are welcome
- Lovely personal touches such as nic-nacs of piggies and lots of great books and games parents and children to indulge

Both my husband and I have travelled to many parts of the world and to be perfectly honest, "The Pigsty" has to be one of the best holiday lets we have ever stayed in. Not just value for money but also the quality of the stay and the hospitality shown by both hosts - we arrived as tenants and left as friends - and that's what made our stay so special.

If anyone has read any of my previous Tripadvisor reviews of other places you'll understand that I always to try to give an honest and unbiased opinion of places to stay, and to be honest, I could not find anything about 'The Pigsty' to be negative, it has such a great atmosphere - our three nights at the cottage were an absolute delight - if we visit England again - we'll be there again - I like the idea of honestly saying "I lived in a Pigsty"!!!
