Lovely little cottage
I have just returned from a lovely weekend away at the piggery cottage and absolutely loved it. The cottage is nice and small and is ideal for 2 people. It has a lovely big garden and is about a 5 minute drive from Wem. The owners provided a little welcome pack of bread, butter and milk which was a nice touch and the cottage is well fitted out with all the mod cons needed for a feeling of being home from home. We were lucky enough to have nice weather and we sat outside on the patio and had a BBQ, which was all very relaxing. The cottage is well appointed and has sky tv too if you ever wanted to just have a quiet night in. We would love to have stayed longer too and we will be returning in the near future

Perfect base for Shrewsbury & Wales - a little 'home from home'
Great little place for us - two & a dog. Nice big garden for the dog to roam in. Rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed for a few days away from home. We only met Hilary who was very friendly - we didn't have any problems but felt we could have contacted her at anytime (she's in the house on the grounds). Appreciated the little welcome pack :-)

A Little Bit Of Heaven
I would like to thank our hosts, Hillary & John, for making our stay in their beautiful cottage really special. From the moment we stepped in the door, where we found a lovely welcome pack waiting for us, until the day we left we couldn't have wished for a nicer place to stay. The cottage was immaculate with everything we needed for a successful holiday. There was a lovely selection of books and DVD's for when we had a night in. There was also a good selection of menus from the local take aways and restaurants, our favourite was the Pearl Garden in Wem. A most enjoyable holiday.

Access
Car required
How to get there
Although we suggest a car is essential it is possible to manage without one: There is a nearby railway station in Wem (3 miles). There are no taxis available at the station. Contact us before the start of your stay if you need contact numbers of local taxis. We do not advise walking the 3 miles to Piggery Cottage since it is on a rural B road (the B5476) without pavement or street lights. Shopping can be brought in for you by prior arrangement with the owners. The nearest pub is 1 mile away on the B5476 - a pleasant walk in summer. For those coming by car full directions will be emailed in advance of your stay or please contact us you would like more information before booking.
