This former piggery, thought to date from the 17th century, has been re-modelled to offer spacious, light and airy accommodation; an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful area.

Set in the heart of the village of Slingsby which is nestled in the Howardian Hills; an AONB, you are well placed to explore the surrounding countryside which is popular with walkers and cyclists alike. Castle Howard is only three miles from the The Pigsty and Sandsend and Whitby, York, Helmsley and The North Yorkshire Moors are all within easy reach.

The accommodation is largely open plan; a perfect space for couples to enjoy. The modern kitchen is well equipped for cooking an evening meal or preparing a hearty breakfast and is fitted with dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is ample dining and seating space for a cosy night in and wall – mounted television with Netflix and Amazon Prime. The sleeping area to the rear boasts a king size bed and shower room beyond. The property is decorated in light, bright tones throughout and benefits from underfloor heating; a must for the chilly Yorkshire winters! Outside is a private, enclosed courtyard with seating for two and there is plentiful on street parking.

Slingsby benefits from an excellent village pub and in the neighbouring village of Hovingham there is a local shop, two bakeries and further pubs while approximately five miles away is Malton; “ Yorkshire’s Food Capital”.

One small dog is accepted at the property but not allowed on the furniture.

Great location to explore the area near by. Peaceful, clean and well equipped. And an amazing pub next door.

Delightful pigsty

The Pigsty provides spotlessly clean, modern, light and airy accommodation, in a very well designed small area. It's slightly minimalist, which suited us, but a few additional touches such as wine glasses as well as tumblers, a coffee table by the sofa and instructions for the heating and television would be welcome. The bathroom door is somewhat artisanal, which is fine, except for the noise when you try to close it. Slingsby is a charming village, and the local pub is very friendly and welcoming. The catering was limited to delicious pizzas while we were there, but no doubt the menu will be increasing soon. Good walking on footpaths, and easy access to other parts of this beautiful area.

Lovely stay

Perfect for couples. Nothing was open in the town due to covid which was disappointing however itÂ’s located between York/Scabrough and robin hoods bay (40 min drive each way). wish they would of had blinds on the skylight windows as the daylight woke us up extremely early every morning. Other then this the stay was lovely and comfortable.
