What guests are saying....

"What a fabulous little bolthole! The location completely surpassed our expectations - cosy, secluded, yet a short walk to Sennen beach. The Piggery is kitted out as the perfect tiny house, with living room, kitchen, bedroom and shower room all immaculately prepared. We really enjoyed the log burner and passed a couple of lovely evenings cooking dinner for ourselves. Thanks so much for having us - we hope to come back soon!"

Jasmine. P - December 2020

"This lovely little dog-friendly cottage may be small, but it's the perfect bolthole from which to discover this beautiful part of the UK. Booking and check-in was wonderfully simple and Sebastian and team provided some great tips for places to visit and things to do. The cottage is nicely designed, spotlessly clean and within walking distance of two stunning beaches...what's not to like?!"

David. M - October 2020

"Super spot to stay in, only a 5 minute walk to the beach and great modcons, water soaker HOT shower as well as a fireplace, private parking....would definitely recommend."

Brett. P - October 2020

"We had a lovely stay here, it was perfectly clean and check in was really easy, a 5 minute walk to beautiful views of Sennen cove and then a lovely walk to Lands End. Had everything we needed to stay in for dinner a couple of the nights! Definitely would recommend."

Lizzy. B - October 2020

"Cosy place with all the creature comforts you’d expect in your own home! Great compact kitchen, comfy bed and a lovely warm shower after a long day of exploring!"

George. W - October 2020

“Small, but perfectly formed The Piggery is a great base point for a couple exploring south west Cornwall. It is a bit off the beaten track but not quite isolated which is just what you want to escape from it all - then pop to the pub when you fancy a local tipple. The beautifully decorated and styled space is clean and modern with plenty of cosy touches. You will find everything you need for basic meals and a comfortable retreat at the end of the day. The hosts leave plenty of tips on the local area. If you want a good walk, we recommend following the coastal path to Nanjizal Bay, via Sennen Cove and Land’s End. Grab a pint at the Old Success Inn at Sennen Cove on the way back to power you back up the (steep) track home. Would definitely visit again.”

Lindsey. D - October 2020

"Clean, bright, modern, welcoming space. Yes it was small & compact & only fits two people comfortably but somebody had clearly been watching ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’ & put a lot of thought into maximizing the use of space. Even though it was small the high ceiling made it feel airy. The portable plug in hob was genius - my husband has already googled it & found one for outdoor cooking at home - and the shower, that was just the best & most powerful shower we have ever experienced! Bliss. The setting is perfect, quiet & rural, lovely windy lanes & paths to explore & great walks down to Sennen & Gwynver beaches. A tiny piece of paradise really, tucked away but accessible. Shame about the weather...but not even Sebastian has control over that! Highly recommended."

Dani. W - October 2020

"A perfect tiny bolt hole, well designed and thought out to meet all your needs."

Wendy. S - September 2020

Larissa. B - August 2020

Laura. P - August 2020

"This place is an absolute gem! The Piggery is a stylish and thoughtful conversion, very well equipped and perfect for a stay in this stunning area. The entire place was spotlessly clean but also very comfortable and welcoming. Seb was incredibly helpful throughout the booking and rearranging of this trip. We’d love to visit again."

Nicki Durrant - August 2020

“The Piggery was perfect location our three day stay in Cornwall. Highly recommended for couples. The cottage space is compact but well designed. The host’s communication was rapid, informative and very approachable! We had a really lovely stay and a fantastic holiday around the area”

Hester. C - August 2020

"We spent a lovely sunny week in The Piggery in July 2020. Amazing use of space to create a stylish and very comfortable hideaway in wild Cornwall. Great to be able to walk from The Piggery to beautiful beaches, take in stunning sunsets and dramatic coastline. Loved it!"

Andrew. F - July 2020

"If you are looking for a nice scenic country and beach side holiday then look no further than this place. The cottage is great value and perfectly located to some amazing beaches and a nice hike to Land's end with some great views."

Mav. S - July 2020

"Really well placed little retreat perfect for summer months spent exploring all that Cornwall has to offer. The place is very compact but well designed to fit everything you need. 5 minute walk to the cliffs overlooking both sennen and Gwynver beach, then 10 minutes to work your way down to either beach. We really enjoyed a day exploring the west coastal road up to at ives stopping at various places along the way. Our favourite view was pendeen light house watching the sun go down after a day at st ives. Seb was really quick to respond to all messages and helped us with our stay. Already looking to return to Cornwall again."

A lovely holiday to remember!"

"The Piggery, Escalls"

The Piggery at Escalls is a gorgeous detached conversion of an old farm building designed with incredible style and attention to detail.

The epitome of the saying “all good things come in small packages” the Piggery ticks so many boxes and this lovely little retreat is the ideal spot for an escape to the far west. There is a parking space right outside and from the front door it’s only a ten-minute walk down to one of our finest local beaches at Gwenver. Through the garden gate you are led to a private courtyard, a perfect spot for a sundowner after a day’s surfing or a morning coffee planning the day’s outings.

Entering the Piggery through the french doors you come into the open plan living area which is flooded with light and has everything you need for a perfect base from which to enjoy your Cornish break. The cleverly thought out space has an area to eat, an open plan kitchenette and a comfy sofa to relax on in front of the cutest little wood burner. Through to the bedroom and there is a king-sized bed and a further door through to the luxury ensuite shower room. 


Escalls is a small hamlet situated five minutes from Sennen Cove which was recently featured in the Times “top five beaches in the UK”. It’s a special location set above the coastal path and you can walk to Gwenver, known locally as one of the best surfing spots in the county. If you are looking for a break to unwind, walking down to the beach to watch the breakers roll in, is a sure antidote on this unspoilt stretch of coast. 

From the front door you cut down the farm track, known locally as the fairy lanes, which in a few minutes, leads to the top of the cliffs between Sennen and Gwenver beaches. It’s an amazing viewing spot high above the Atlantic and from here the unmarked paths lead down to the coastal path and beach. For Shopping the local market town of St Just is under 10 minutes away and is a UNESCO world heritage site due to its rich mining history. Here you will find an array of great local shops: a deli, a butcher, four pubs and a small local supermarket for your everyday needs. Surrounding Escalls are the most spectacular stretches of coastline and fantastic moorland walks from the doorstep. Further afield in the wider West Cornwall the popular towns of Penzance, St Ives, Marazion and Mousehole are all an easy drive away.


This characterful and stylish space has a bijou sitting area with a comfy two seater sofa in front of a wood burning stove and to the side a wall mounted flat screen TV. The built in kitchen is more like a kitchenette but has everything you need to cook a meal with a fridge, integrated combi microwave/oven/grill, sink and a single moveable hob plate. Between the sitting area and kitchen is a breakfast bar with two bar chairs. 


Through the kitchen area a door leads to the bedroom with a comfortable king-sized bed dressed in good quality linen with bath towels provided. There is shelving behind the bed, storage under the bed and open hanging hooks on the opposite wall. There is a glass door which opens to the outside and means you can enjoy the sea air, while sitting in bed with your morning tea.


Through the bedroom is a stunning modern shower room with a large shower enclosure and rain shower. 


The Piggery is one side of a large courtyard shared with Manor Farm and there is a private parking space by your garden gate. This leads to a cute courtyard with a bistro table and two chairs.
