Reviews for The Piggery at Unique Retreats

Meet the owner

Joe and Geoff Ellis

Joe and Geoff, our dogs Maisie & Nanci, who we adore, have 5 holiday cottages next to each other which can be let separately or all together. Our original property the Piggery has been painstakingly renovated. Our other cottages also proved to be a labour of love, hard work and sheer determination. We have exceptionally high standards which shows in the quality of interiors and our attention to cleanliness. The comfort and enjoyment of our guests are our main priority. Our guest comments are proof of this. These are really very special properties, ideal for friends and family to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The icing on the cake are the stunning views from all properties over the Esk Valley and the North Yorkshire Moors. We have a continued refurb programme making sure all our cottages are in exceptional condition and contain our extra special touches whether you are just enjoying a break with us or celebrating something extra special. We have also recently added an EV (electric vehicle) charging point for our guests use. We do hope we can welcome you to our gorgeous little corner of North Yorkshire.
