A quirky, cosy Derbyshire stone barn conversion set in a prized position offering expansive views. The Pigsty is part of the cluster of charming buildings that constitutes Hurdlow Grange in a rural hamlet with scenic Peak District villages nearby.
What was once the old Pigsty at Hurdlow Grange, has now been given a new lease of life and converted into a small yet perfectly formed stylish studio suite.
Nestled at the bottom of the communal courtyard this cosy barn conversion offers a great base from which to explore the hills and dales of the Peak District. The accommodation is all on one level with each room creatively styled to maximise space.
Enter through the barn door into the compact yet well equipped kitchen space, which has been fitted out with the essentials to cook including electric oven and hob, under counter fridge with freezer compartment, a kettle and toaster. Through to the right is the modern shower room with sink and WC.
At the far end of the studio is the stylish double bedroom, which is the perfect hideout featuring a smart TV and plush furnishings to cosy up in.
Moving from the bedroom through to the snug where you can relax on the plush velvet sofa, a coffee table and a modern wall mounted electric fire. There is no formal dining space in the Pigsty but there are two breakfast trays for enjoying a lazy breakfast in bed.
2 x communal on-site 7kw electric charging points (minimal charges apply)
Situated at the bottom of the larger communal courtyard of Hurdlow Grange, the Pigsty shares the space with five other properties which collectively make up 'Hurdlow Grange'. Whilst you are on a shared site, The Pigsty benefits from its own private, walled courtyard where you will find a picnic bench perfect for outdoor dining and further seating with lawned area to the far end. Plenty of parking is available in the communal courtyard.
Hurdlow is a tiny rural hamlet surrounded by rolling fields and stunning countryside views. From Hurdlow you can hop straight onto the popular High Peak & Tissington trail, on which you can walk or cycle to your heart's content. There is conveniently a cycle hire along the trail at Parsley Hay if you want to hire a bicycle.
(Parsley Hay does shut for Winter from 01st Nov until February)
Buxton is just a 10 minute drive from Hurdlow, here you will find ample shops, eateries and activities for all kinds of groups and ages including GoApe! A 10 minute drive in the other direction and you can visit the pretty market town of Bakewell where you can enjoy experiencing local produce including the famous Bakewell Pudding!
The Pig Sty is within easy walkable (0.8 miles) reach of our country pub The Royal Oak at Hurdlow which boasts an expansive menu of home-cooked food.
You can also walk over the fields from Hurdlow Grange to our pub and pizzeria at The Bull I Thorn. It is the perfect place to stop off for a homemade wood fired pizza with fresh dough made daily by our Italian chef, tasty burgers and classic British pub meals are amongst the offerings on the menu.

Great location in Peak District. Thank you for hosting us!
Lovely Pigsty 😂 small and cosy . Very private. Ideal spot to get about the Peak District. The pub is a longish walk so decided to drive. The pub was amazing , food, service and drinks were spot on. Would go back . Thank you
We’ve had a comfortable 3 night stay. Loved the local pub (The Royal Oak) and a little cafe about 10 mins drive in Monyash. Property is very close to some beautiful walks and must visit places in the Peak District. Overall a good value for money for a short break :)
Great trip, very nice place to stay.
Very clean, easy to find and great location. Perfect for a quiet weekend away.
We stayed at the Pigsty for 4 nights. It was a lovely little space, perfect for visiting the surrounding sights and going on walks. We loved all the little touches, especially the ‘fire’ in the living room and how well equipped the kitchen is! The bed was super comfy as as well. Definitely would recommend !!
Thanks for hosting us - great stay! We enjoyed the walks, pubs, cycles, and visited Chatsworth. Peaks Venues were easy to contact and helpful - would recommend.
Lovely little cottage in a perfect location.
Great stay as described in a great location!
Great staycation…. Property was immaculate throughout and really well laid out and in a lovely location. Be prepared to drive everywhere or come prepared as no shops for miles. Only niggle was the mattress was very hard. Would stay here again!
We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing Airbnb in the Peak District recently, and I must say it was an incredible experience. From the moment we arrived, we were struck by the stunning location and the peaceful surroundings. The property was beautifully converted, with modern amenities and a cosy atmosphere that made us feel right at home. The location was also perfect for exploring the beautiful Peak District National Park.
Great location in the peaks and close to pubs. Check in was easy and the pigsty was a comfortable small house for the weekend. Overall great weekend
Amazing host, great location, well insulated, has everything you need! Will be coming back!
Clean, modern, well equipped interior, beautiful location, accommodation itself is stunning. We really liked the hands off approach of the owners and the flexibility.
Beautiful place, gorgeous area. Had a brilliant stay
Absolutely lovely place to stay! Great location for a quiet getaway but perfect for travelling to the nearest towns with ease. Lovely, cosy place to come back to after a winter walk! Would definitely stay again!
We had a great stay in the Pigsty. The accommodation itself was spotless with nice decor and was a good size for 2 people, a baby and a small dog. The location was peaceful and private, a it was easy to access local places including Bakewell and Buxton by car, with some nice walks in the area too. We’d definitely stay here again in the future
A perfect place for two. Cosy, clean and inviting. The Royal Oak down the road is a must!
Amazing little find perfect for a long weekend in the Peak District! The accommodation was clean warm and had everything we needed! The Royal Oak pub was also a short walk and provided great food and a cosy atmosphere! We actually ate there twice the food was soo good!
Loved the stay in the Pig Sty! Property was clean and cosy, ideal for a few days stay.

We loved the Pigsty and the area. Amazing weather.
Nicely located and well decorated property. Great for a weekend away! Thank you for having us stay, we enjoyed it very much!”
Beautiful hideaway in peak district, remote so aside from other airbnbs in Hurdlow Grange around you, there's just open scenery and quiet. However, short drives away there are pubs/fish n chips etc. We brought our dog for his first holiday away from home, he approved also!
We really enjoyed our stay and would go back again. The property was very clean and just as described, with beautiful furnishings and clever use of space. It was perfect for our trip - a really cosy place to stay when visiting the area.
Really enjoyed my stay here - clean and beautiful inside and great location
Amazing little getaway! Perfect to celebrate my 30th with gorgeous walks right on the doorstep
Lovely cottage, very small but cosy for winter. It is very secluded so go equipped or you’re driving 30 min round trip to a shop. For local walks I recommend Monsal Head View Point but it is a drive away. Good distance to go into Bakewell for the day or Buxton.
The pig sty is a perfect weekend away in the peaks location. Lovely and stylish, clean and great value. Would highly recommend
We loved our stay in the pigsty, it's a perfect cost retreat which we will definitely return to one day. the bed comfortable and it has all the amenities you need in a neat little bundle.

Fantastic 3 night stay in the Peak District . The pig stay catered for all our needs!
Super clean and cosy - the perfect little base for exploring the local area!
Perfect stay for a couples getaway in the countryside.
Warm, small and cosy. Clean and nicely furnished. Quiet remote location.

The Pigsty was a perfect cosy spot for our holiday in the Peak District. We had a relaxing stay and is in a great location to explore the Peak District.
Everything you need for a peaceful, scenic stay. A clean, tidy, perfect setting for a stay in the middle of nowhere
The Pigsty is a cute and cosy getaway venue in a beautiful rural setting. Fantastic communication with the hosts, great info so made everything smooth and easy. Everyone has mentioned the Royal Oak down the road and for good reason - fantastic pub, great atmosphere, staff and food, would recommend pre-booking. We feel like we had the perfect Peak District visit staying here!
Great little space nestled in the Peak District, really well-equipped, clean and comfy. Easy to get to Bakewell and Buxton as well as other towns, villages and walks. We also enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Royal Oak (but definitely book ahead). We stayed here for 4 nights, although the weather wasn't great we were able to have a really nice time. All great, not at a loss for anything
Cute, clean and country side as far as the eye can see. Lovely location, quiet and relaxing accommodation. Perfect for all seasons cottage. Lovely stay, just what I needed. Feel very confident that booking anywhere with Peak Venues would be a great experience and fully trusted for great quality.”
This is the tidiest pigsty i have ever seen and would happily go back there again and again. The location is beautiful and i highly recommend the royal oak pub! The food was amazing and value for money and the staff were great. The whole weekend was one i would happily do again. Thanks peak venues for an amazing accommodation as advertised. We were not disappointed.
Good location, nice place
This is such a great spot to spend a relaxing long weekend or longer holiday - so cozy for two (plus our dog). Ten minutes to Buxton and walking distance to a pub, and a dairy (ice cream!!). Thanks so much for a wonderful stay
Perfect little place, exactly as described, great location. The Royal Oak nearby has great food and beer! Would highly recommend this accommodation.”
“Great place, thanks for letting us add this day to our other booking!”
“Had a lovely stay at The Pigsty, would definitely recommend. Communication was great, check in was hassle free and hands off, clean and welcoming upon arrival. Bedding, towels and kitchen essentials provided as stated. The heaters are set on timers so it was a toasty warm welcome, especially as check in is slightly later in the day. Surrounded by fields and nature, very close to the High Peak Trail so ideal for cycling and walks. Such a cute space to stay, would love to stay again in the future. There is a lovely pub a short cycle/walk/drive away if you fancy a meal out during your stay as well.
“Beautiful cosy pigsty. Perfect for what we wanted which was peace and quiet and just to relax.”
Lovely Airbnb in a great, calming location with an amazing local pub.
