Loved the apartment, everything (almost) we could have wanted was there and all very thoughtfully decorated and laid out. Loads of details, with regard to the kitchen and bathroom facilities, and the perfect temperature. We had an excellent stay, found the surroundings attractive and the situation extremely convenient. It would have been perfect (for us) if there had been a radio (we couldn't track down radio stations on the TV), but we would thoroughly recommend the Old Piggery and would love to come back when we had more time.
Very convenient for visiting Bury St Edmunds and Ickworth. However, be aware that the allocated parking is for others as well. We came back one evening to find two other cars in the parking area and found it difficult to leave our car so they would not be blocked - not ideal. We also found that there were noisy yappy dogs in the adjacent property. Though generally comfortable our stay would have been improved by some small details: proper bread board and a hand towel in the kitchen; occasional tables in the seating area; towel rail in the bathroom (also the shaver socket didn't appear to work). However the place is clean and warm and the bedding IS a joy (though the bed is very firm). All in all adequate but not deserving of 5 stars.
A short stroll away from the entrance and trails of Ickworth Park, the accommodation is well equipped and very comfortable. Although near a main road, it is very quiet, only birdsong will disturb you.The owner, Caroline, was very helpful on arrival, and left us alone to enjoy our welcome break. Highly recommended.
We were invited to the evening reception of a wedding at Hengrave hall. Since we were driving from Bedfordshire we decided to make a weekend of it. The old piggery ticked all the boxes. Close to venue and a really lovely place. It was very well equipped, modern comfortable interior and exceptionally clean. The owners were around on our arrival and were very welcoming. The wine and biscuits went down a treat. We arrived on what was probably the hottest day this year . With temperatures reaching 37 the fan came in very useful! We managed to sample the local pubs too. The beehive in particular offered a decent menu and good food.Would definitely recommend as a place to stay.... fairly rural but close enough to bury st Edmunds. Thank you
