The Old Piggery

Exeter, Devon

Outdoor twin rolltop baths await outside this open-plan cottage on an 11th Century farm in the hills on the edge of Dartmoor National Park


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


The medieval residents of Windout Farm would have been no strangers to outdoor facilities, but it’s unlikely that they would have imagined anything like this. The deck, screened for privacy, has lovely hillside views but, as well as a table and chairs, there are a giant pair of rolltop baths for you to enjoy them from!Although the beams and dimpled walls of the Piggery are fairly traditional materials, a pleasantly quirky spirit is maintained inside as well on the bathing deck. Soft wood colours in the fully-equipped kitchen, shower room and living space suggest a subtle and thoughtful modernisation of the ancient building. That is, until you get to the bed, which is reached by climbing the ladder to where it hangs suspended from the ceiling. Although if you don’t fancy the climb or have the kids with you, then the sofas fold out into more grounded sleeping spaces.Life on the farm will go on around you and in some cases even be delivered to you in the form of your breakfast essentials. Visit in spring and you’ll see the baby chicks hatching or possibly get caught in the driveway by the perennial local traffic problem, a lamb jam. Dartmoor and the Devon coast are on hand for hiking, biking and all sorts of exploration and, when you get back, you might just want to run a nice, hot, outdoor bath or two!The Old Piggery has featured in The Evening Standard, The Times & Lonely Planet!
