The Piggery at Stockham Farm
The Piggery has been recently refurbished to an equally extremely high standard as with the Victorian Wing of the farmhouse. A former traditional stone barn, housing many animals (not just pigs!) it was initially converted into a home over 30 years ago. 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.
We have excellent satellite broadband at Stockham 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.
We shall soon be adding an availability calendar to this website, but in the meantime either get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the following pages for up to date availability: The Piggery at Stockham Farm Availability and The Victorian Wing at Stockham Farm Availability
The self-contained Victorian Wing of Stockham Farm is the left hand side of the farmhouse, as seen in all the images of the house itself, with exclusive use of the main red front door and porch to access your holiday home. Parking for your cars is right outside the door. Although we live next door, the cottage is completely self-contained and you really won’t know we’re there – many of the warm, honest reviews from previous guests will attest to this!
The Piggery can be found just 50 metres above the house, close to the stables and with its own parking area alongside the fenced small pond.
It is possible to let both properties together (sleeping 10) or separately – the farm is big enough for two parties to enjoy a holiday separately and peacefully.
Stockham is less than one and a half miles up into the hills above the lovely small market town of Dulverton and with easy access to the open moorland and wooded valleys of Exmoor – perfect for four-legged friends – this location really is the best of both worlds.
Dulverton is an idyllic small town, full of friendly independent shops, and affectionately known as the Gateway to Exmoor. You can discover the bridge over the River Barle, the Co-Op, the delicatessen, the butchers, the bakers, the greengrocers, numerous tea rooms, Isis Beauty Salon, fabulous independent shops, Rothwell & Dunworth rare bookshop, three hairdressers, and delicious food and amazing service at Woods Bar and Restaurant and the Bridge Inn. Don’t miss a peek into beautiful All Saints Church, especially with its incredible carpet of snowdrops in early spring.

The O'L Family + Finn - August 2020
Such a wonderful stay. Incredible hospitality. Thank you so much. Kids had a fantastic time – Doggy Finn even more so! Thank you to Esme for her amazing baking – what wonderful memories. Looking forward be being back soon.
The P Family + Keeper & Hattie - July 2020
A wonderful stay as usual and such a treat to be able to bring the dogs, given the nature of the lovely accommodation with all its facilities. Our highlights included trips to Dulverton, BBQs, stag spotting walks, sunny breakfasts sat outside, Dottie, Sid and relaxing by the fire in the evenings. We are already looking forward to next year’s stay!
Miss V and Mr N + Tarka - July 2020
Such a wonderful stay at the Piggery – from the scones on welcome to the goodbye from Sid and Dottie. Thank you for taking the time to walk us to the ‘trig point’ where we were lucky enough to see the stags! So impressed with Dulverton, such a quaint town with a great selection.
Mr and Mrs S + Tilly - March 2020
Such a beautiful cottage and location, we have loved every minute, even in the pouring rain! Dulverton is such a pleasant little town with everything needed in supply. Can recommend Woods, had fabulous food there, and very coy in the Bridge Inn, dogs are made very welcome. Haddon Hill is stunning for walking and Winsford is a great little village. This area is so lovely it doesn’t matter where you go!! Many thanks for making us so welcome.
