This little piggy went to Essex

So much more than a bed a breakfast, but not as impersonal as a hotel, Ella Foote heads to Piglets Boutique Country Stay to dip into their special offer

Award winning places to stay usually come with an unappealing price tag or soulless experience, but at Piglets Boutique Country Stay you are welcomed like an old friend and provided an exceptional level of personal service. Hidden in a beautiful forgotten corner of the Essex countryside, just an hour from London and a short distance from medieval town, Saffron Walden, the boutique bed and breakfast offers a perfect weekend escape.
