This building was once home to a bunch of pigs that lucked out living, as they did, in what must have been the finest pigsty in Britain. In 1889, the barmy squire who owned the land returned from his trip to the Mediterranean with a glint in his eye and commissioned this pigsty to be built to resemble an ancient Greek temple. He also gave the lucky swine a fine view of the countryside and hills that tumble out towards Robin Hood’s Bay.
The lease was acquired by the Landmark Trust and turned into a holiday rental. You will find the accommodation compact and comfortable with a bedroom, bathroom, and living area. There is a wood burner for those cold nights and whimsical carved pigs dotted around the place in homage to the original inhabitants of this unique property. The local area is renowned for its beauty with historical castles, churches, and villages nearby.
