Without doubt, the cottage is the best self catering cottage I have stayed in. You can tell the owner is an electrician by the fact that there are 10 double sockets in the lounge and 9 in the kitchen. He carried out the barn conversion himself and it shows in the outstanding quality of the design. The walk-in wet room-style shower is superb.

An excellent romantic hideaway with welcoming but discrete owners on site. There were superb views of the remote, haunting dale.

The cottage was just what we wanted for a relaxing break, it was in a truly beautiful area and we were sorry to leave. The owners were very welcoming. The cottage itself was cosy, well furnished and was the best we have ever used. We hope we will be able to visit again.

Everything had been thought of to make our holiday absolutely perfect. The attention to detail and the thought that had gone into the furnishings and equipment supplied was the best we have come across.

The welcome was excellent, we were made very much at home. The cottage was superb, great facilities and the bathroom was to die for. Not seen better in a four star hotel. The location was just what we wanted, peaceful and a great base to explore from. Thank you for a great holiday.

This was our first holiday in a cottage and wow, have we been spoilt. The cottage and the location were superb, if you want peace and quiet and fantastic views, this is the place. Everything has been done to a very high spec. Tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival were a lovely thought. The owner was there if you needed him, otherwise he just left you to enjoy yourselves. Thoroughly recommend The Piggery to anyone.

Should be 5 star at least, it is a beautiful, well maintained property with fabulous views. Many extras including toiletries and coffee machine plus coffee. Would recommend this very highly, was probably the best self catering property we have ever stayed in, the photographs did not do justice.

A great location with easy access to York, Scarborough, Whitby etc. Fabulous accommodation which was extremely well equipped, truly a home from home. There were stunning views from your own private patio and peace and quiet! Had a friendly welcome, will go again.

Farndale is an escape from the crowds. The cottage is very well appointed and situated to supply a lovely view of the valley. Surrounded by farmland with sheep, lots of rabbits,good variety of birds. A fair distance to shops so work out your shopping and bring supplies for your stay. The coastal villages are only 30 minutes away. Lots to do in this area and this is a good base for exploring.

The Piggery is situated in picturesque Farndale. The lounge, kitchen & bedroom all have lovely views over the valley. The cottage has an open plan lounge, diner & kitchen, with the bedroom situated on the mezzanine level with an adjoining walk-in shower room and toilet. Everything has been thought of - there is a cooker, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, slow cooker, radio, TV & DVD player - and the whole cottage was immaculately clean. The owners even thoughtfully provide, tea, coffee, milk & biscuits as a welcome. There is a good wifi. Because of health reasons we needed to have mobile telephone coverage. This was achieved wth the help of the owner who helped us connect our Vodaphone Sure Signal. This is a very quiet location in the dales 10 mins drive from the local pub and about 20 mins from the local supermarket (open long hours), so planning is needed for meals! However, we successfully cooked most of our meals with the equipment in the cottage. There is lots to do in the area, from walking, cycling & shooting to visits to NT properties, stately homes, the coast and steam trains. A stay at The Piggery is highly recommended!

Excellently well kitted out apartment (fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher...all the way to slow cooker), with lovely furniture and decor, also immaculately clean. It has all you could think to need on a week away. The area is beautiful, we stayed in late august when the heather was in full purple bloom, although you will need a car to get almost anywhere other than the nearest pub that is about a 20 min walk away. Owner is friendly and knowledgeable but gives you the space to enjoy your holiday.
