Just had a family long weekend at the Piggery. What a fabulous place, really easy open plan layout that makes get together a so relaxed and easy. The view of the chapel ruin is beautiful and the whole area is fantastic for walking and sightseeing. Beamishwaa a great day out and national trust gibside is right on your doorstep. The piggery had luxurious underfloor heating and a very well equipped kitchen. Ruth was also very helpful, flexible, friendly and welcoming. Could not have asked for more, a very special weekend, Thankyou!
Lovely, clean comfortable stay. Peaceful and quiet. Beamish and Durham easy to access by car.
Perfect for our stay.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner with a big smile. We were also smiling as soon as we walked through the doors to the property. The Piggery is not only very well appointed, very well presented and spotlessly clean but the attention to detail that has been put into the place by the owners is unreal.There was fresh milk in the fridge, tea and coffee. Washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and even laundry detergent provided along with plenty of good quality towels in both of the beautiful bathrooms. They had literally thought of everything including some games and a pack of cards.As others have already said about views etc. staying there on the hottest weekend of the year to date certainly didn't hurt, it really was amazing! Saw some beautiful birds and a deer. They have also mentioned how approachable and non intrusive they were, what I haven't seen yet is the fact that they also helped to get us discount on entry into Beamish too! I have returned home feeling stress free and well rested after a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a jewel of place. Would definitely stay there again the next time I was going to the north east.
