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. The peaceful surroundings are ideally suited to walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists and all who love the countryside. Cycle hire is available nearby.
Ashbourne retains many small, privately owned shops, including antiques. There is a wide choice of cafes, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants.
The southern Peak Park has many attractions - beautiful Dovedale, the spa town of Buxton, Matlock and the Heights of Abraham. Lesser known Leek, the "Queen of the Moorlands", has a lengthy history, with a number of old and interesting buildings. The Nicholson Institute houses a museum and art gallery.
Within easy reach of Stanton are Cheadle, with its magnificent Pugin Church, for the more adventurous, outdoor activities at Carsington Water, and for excitement Alton Towers. Further afield are many places of interest, including Bolsover Castle, Calke Abbey, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Old Hall, Kedleston Hall and Shugborough.
