More about The Pigsty


This pigsty was converted in the Spring of 2015 and now offers holiday accommodation for two. It stands on the edge of a wildflower meadow, created with help from the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. There are extensive views over four counties and the Weaver Hills. It is located in the conservation village of Stanton, just 3 miles from the historic town of Ashbourne and 2 miles from the southern edge of the Peak District. This is a snug retreat for all seasons.
