The Piggery at Stockham Farm, near Dulverton (Somerset) is a detached converted stone barn situated in the hills just 1.4 miles from the country town of Dulverton, in the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Sleeping up to 6 guests and dog-friendly, this lovely cottage also has stabling available on-site
The entrance to The Piggery opens into a hallway, turn to the right into the sitting-dining room, with comfy sofas and a scrubbed pine table and chairs, there's a gas 'wood burning' stove, a smart TV and books and games to enjoy too. From the hallway, a few steps lead into the kitchen which is fully fitted with a dishwasher, washing machine, fan assisted oven, ceramic hob and microwave. It is roomy enough for a window seat and a chair to sit and chat while someone else does the cooking! A few more steps lead to the lower-level bedrooms, one twin bedroom and one double, which has a king-size bed. Adjacent to the bedrooms is a shower room comprising a walk-in shower, toilet and hand basin.
One the first floor there is the third bedroom (king-size double bed) and bathroom comprising a bath, with hand-held shower attachment, toilet and hand basin. The view from the upstairs bedroom is truly jaw-dropping – over fields, woodland and across the Exe Valley.
Bed linen and towels are provided, but please bring your own beach towels and dog towels (if appropriate).
A welcome pack of a bottle of sparkling wine, homemade scones, Cornish clotted cream, locally made jam and a small bottle of milk will be provided. You will find a small quantity of tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil etc. in the kitchen to get you started.
Heating and electricity are included in the price of the accommodation. The ground floor has underfloor heating, plus radiators upstairs.
The Piggery has really good wifi (provided by satellite) that extends throughout the cottage and outside too! 4G reception is also good, as is mobile reception for EE and Three.
Well behaved dogs welcome (maximum of 3) for £30 supplement per dog. Sorry, no puppies (aged less than 12 months). Please do not allow your dogs in the bedrooms, on the furniture or leave them unattended.
We also welcome horses to stay with their owners at Stockham Farm. We are experienced equestrians ourselves and the farm has British Horse Society 'Horses Welcome' accreditation. The riding out from Stockham is fabulous, with no need to use roads to reach moorland, fields, riverside tracks, woodland etc. Horses are charged at £25 per horse/pony per night either on DIY livery in beautiful stone stables or on turnout in fenced paddocks. Hay and straw included in the price.
