The Pigsty

The Pigsty, Manor Farm Holiday Cottages, north Norfolk

Sleeps 5/6 (3 bedrooms)

At Manor Farm you will be given a rare opportunity to live in a pigsty. Not any old pigsty, we hasten to add, but perhaps the most luxurious pigsty of its kind in the country!  This cottage is in the same ‘horseshoe’ group of brick and flint cottages as The Tractor House and The Cow Byre.


It is a while since The Pigsty was a home for scores of delightful, squealing piglets.  It now has the same high-standard finish as all the other cottages. The accommodation is all on one level with an open plan kitchen/sitting/dining area. The original exposed flint walls and vaulted, beamed ceiling have been retained. There is one bedroom with king sized bed and ensuite bathroom with P shaped shower bath.  A second bedroom suitable for children, with bunk beds.  The third bedroom has a single bed but can be a twin bedroom if the full sized truckle bed is utilised.  There is also a separate shower room.  Central heating throughout makes for a warm and cosy stay!

Outside there is a south-facing enclosed garden, with a small patio area and a table and chairs.

There is a shared laundry room close by with washing machine, tumble dryer and iron and ironing board.

One well-behaved dog is very welcome.

The Cottage is provided with ….

  • Bed linen
  • Towels (weekly bookings only) Please bring beach towels.
  • Hairdryer
  • Tea Towel
  • Oven Gloves
  • Plates, glasses and cutlery
  • Utensils, pots and pans for your average “holiday meal”

"Thank you for a wonderful stay, we went on lots of walks and the weather has been great. The ‘Cow Byre’ is lovely with lots of special touches. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable, we’ve had a fantastic time.

Thank you and you’ll definitely see us again."
Chris & Mick Collick, Dadley, Dale, Derbyshire
"We hardly used the car, the walk into Cromer (in particular) is easy and can be done along the beach depending on the tide; or do the circular walk to West Runton and return via the cliff top or beach (again, tide dependent). We’ve spent most of the last 20 years coming to Norfolk (at least twice a year), so it’s safe to say we’ll be back!"

- The Robinsons (Leicestershire) and Rowley the Pug
"Our fourth visit to Manor Farm and second time in The Old Pigsty. Nice chilled out week, plenty of walks on the beach with the dog and walks to and from Cromer.

Cottage is fab as always, we love the farm, the village and the county! We’ll be back! Make sure to use the village butcher – he’s well worth a visit!"

"This is our third stay at Manor Farm and we have loved every single minute. So lucky with the weather again, beach walks every day and not had to use the car. The cottage has everything we have needed for our stay and it is going to be a struggle to go home.

Thank you for a lovely stay"
- The Arnold Family
"Just splendid, such a gift thank you. Beautifully looked after, warm and cosy – makes for a wonderfully relaxed family holiday.

We have been struck by the generosity and hospitality of the owners who (to be honest), have gone far beyond the call of duty to make us feel at home and welcomed us. We will always be grateful."

"Ideal location to family in both Cromer and Sheringham. Super comfortable accommodation and the barns are just so lovely, warm and welcoming.

The grandchildren love feeding and seeing the animals and we’ve had some lovely days on the beach, Wizard Maze and the Horse Shire Centre. They were all great value for money!"
