Back in the day, Pigertons housed the dairy and the pig pens on what was then a busy working farm; now it’s an amazing contemporary style holiday house that sleeps 12 in 6 en suite bedrooms (room for 4 more guests at an extra charge per person) and forms part of the Little Hesdin Estate on the Wiltshire/Somerset border.
Park up, get out and have a good stretch after your journey and go in through the big gate in the garden wall; a path takes you to the entrance and into a whopper of an open plan living/entertaining space where the wow factor really starts to impact. 15 metres long, an entire glass wall, with doors onto the garden; this place is made for amazingly sociable holidays and celebrations! To one end there’s a snug area with soft seating and a TV, in the middle there’s a chunky dining table that seats 14 and to the other end, a very swanky kitchen with all you need to create a mammoth feast for your group. There’s a central island where you can perch on stools and chat, so whoever’s doing the slicing and dicing won’t be left out of the action. The glass walls of this room and the games room let the light pour on in – it’s an incredible space.
Next to this open plan living space is the enormous games room, where there’s a pool table, table football, table tennis and air hockey. To one side is a bar and get this - a whole wall of TVs! 5 of them to be precise so there’s no excuse for missing any of the big matches. Get settled for a totally immersive experience!
Throughout Pigertons you can see how the centuries old features have been retained; thick stone walls and soaring roof trusses all pull together with the colourful modern interiors to give an eclectic and very stylish twist.
At the end of the living/entertaining space there’s a handy boot room with laundry facilities, just perfect for when you’ve been out for a tramp in the fields and come back ruddy cheeked and mud-splattered, because you can come straight in the back door. To the left is a loo, to the right, accessed from the snug area of the living/entertaining space, is Bedroom 1, with an en suite bathroom. What’s great is that all the beds at Pigertons are zip and link and can be arranged as a superking/king size or twins (see the Floorplans page for details).
Bedroom 2 is also off the snug area and is an access friendly room with its own wet room and a door leading outside; off the games room are Bedrooms 3 and 4. Bedroom 3 has an en suite shower room, Bedroom 4 has a bathroom with a free standing bath. Note that Bedrooms 1-4 all have TVs and can all accommodate one extra guest in a single bed at an additional charge per person - great for families and for older children. Off the kitchen area a small lobby leads to Bedrooms 5 and 6, both with en suite shower rooms.
Outside of the main living space is the gorgeous walled garden where the colourful theme continues with pots and planting. To the right is the fabulous 8m swim spa, with a hot tub to one end that seats 8 people comfortably. This is heated year round and when the cover is pulled across, that side of the garden doubles as an outdoor cinema. The end wall allows for big screen projection, so get the popcorn out and make yourselves comfy on the loungers and beanbags for cinema beneath the stars. There’s plenty of outdoor furniture, including a big L-shaped sofa, and for alfresco dining there's a barbecue, pizza oven and firepit.
The other side of the garden is an all-season lawn with steps leading to an awesome rooftop terrace above the glass walled living space (NB: Children and dogs MUST be supervised). To be up there on a warm summers day is something else; a glass fronted balcony allows for uninterrupted views across the fields of the Little Hesdin estate, and for catching the sunsets. Stay out there after nightfall, soak it up, love the ambience. Special times await you at Pigertons - book your stay today!
