About The Piggery

Nestled in the grounds of a farm overlooking rolling fields with the resident alpacas and on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The estate is situated in the charming English village of Brabourne a few miles from Canterbury, made famous by its idyllic country setting and also for one of the most popular gastro pubs and eateries around, The Five Bells.

The charming cottage, once a piggery, has been converted sympathetically into a quaint, romantic bolthole. The pretty interior provides all the essentials for the perfect getaway, including a fully equipped kitchen, TV and even WiFi for those who really must keep in touch with world.

For the walking enthusiasts of you, the nature trails and walks are endless in this part of the world or, should you rather stay closer to home, don your cap and enjoy a spot of tennis within the grounds of the estate, later relaxing in your garden with a glass of Pimms and lemonade - oh how very British!
