The Piggery cottage at Stockham Farm is a former traditional Exmoor stone barn, housing many animals (not just pigs!). It was initially converted into a home over 30 years ago and has been recently refurbished to an equally extremely high standard as with the Victorian Wing of the farmhouse. The recent renovation has maintained all the original features, with oak beams and quirky elements in every room.
The accommodation now comprises of three large bedrooms – two on the ground floor (one twin and one kingsize) which share a shower room with walk in shower cubicle, and one upstairs (kingsize bed) that has the benefit of an adjacent bathroom with bath and hand shower attachment. The view from the upstairs bedroom is truly jaw-dropping – over fields, woodland and across the Exe Valley.
On the ground floor you will also find a large sitting/dining room with comfy sofas and a scrubbed pine table and chairs – as well as a gas woodburning stove, a smart TV and books to enjoy. The large kitchen 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! Like the Victorian Wing, the whole of the ground floor has underfloor heating too.
The cottage has been beautifully and sympathetically decorated, with Farrow & Ball paint colours in every room and Clark & Clark fabrics at the windows. No expense has been spared to create a luxury home from home.
We have excellent satellite broadband at The Piggery cottage at Stockham Farm and really good wifi that extends throughout the cottages and outside too! 4G reception is also good, as is mobile reception for EE and Three. Each of the bedrooms has a USB charging point beside the bed.
We have recently installed a metered electric car charging point outside the cottage for the convenience of our guests.
The Piggery can be found just 50 metres above the farmhouse, close to the stables and with its own spacious parking area alongside the fenced small pond. The cottage has a pretty, secluded courtyard garden surrounded by banks and hedges, with sensational distant views, a large table and six chairs (with parasol), a bench, a bbq and pots filled with flowers and herbs. The lawned area beside the pond offers two sun loungers. Guests are welcome to explore the farm’s 35 acres and other parts of the large farmhouse garden too if they wish.
It is possible to book both properties together (sleeping 10) or separately – the farm is big enough for two parties to enjoy a holiday separately and peacefully. Please contact us for more information.
