The Piggery is well fitted to an extremely high standard. Fantastic views over the dales. We took the grandkids and they enjoyed their stay very much. Will plan to go back next year.

About the neighbourhood
Huddersfield has many architecturally interesting buildings and is of course home to the Huddersfield Choral Society and internationally renowned Contemporary Music Festival.
