Old Piggery Yurt


In June 2011 The Old Piggery opened to welcome visitors to the area. Situated on a working arable farm set along the beautiful Greensand Ridge, the once redundant building was thoughtfully converted into a welcoming, well-appointed bed and breakfast. With gorgeous views over the surrounding fields and countryside, our rooms offer a clean and modern environment in which to relax. In 2014 we added two luxurious yurts which have proved a welcome and successful addition to the accommodation we provide.

The Old Piggery is an ideal base for families, walkers, cyclists and horse-riders to explore the area, and we are surrounded by a wide variety of activities. For those visiting on business, we are perfectly placed for access to both M1 and A1 motorways, plus various rail networks. Milton Keynes and London Luton Airport are also easily reached. We can offer residents longer term parking, e.g. if you are travelling from Luton Airport or by rail, we can arrange transport via one of the local taxi firms.

With so much on offer we hope to see you soon!
