Your hosts

We think we live somewhere special, we hope you do too?


We wanted to open a B&B that we would like to stay at.  It meant a great deal of thought was given to what this might look like and the overall experience of guests who came to stay.  What are the touches that make a good stay into a memorable stay?


Both of us have run successful businesses but wanted a new challenge – one we could do together – and Piglets B&B was the result.  Both of us enjoy meeting new and interesting people and this seemed a great way of doing this while having a fantastic home to live in and share.

Doing our bit for the planet or Max’s mini mid-life crisis? We bought an electric Vespa-type scooter to do our errands for the B&B.

After over 40 years of running my family’s luxury games business, now being run by my son on site, I decided it was time for a break and a new challenge with my lovely wife Chrissie.

After years of travel and disappointing hotel stays, I wanted to bring to Piglets many of the things I feel bigger hotels missed despite classing themselves as 5 star and ’boutique’ and then combining this together with the personal touch that can only be truly found within a home.

I believe we have gone some way to achieving this – it is always a work in progress as we strive to make your stay as best we possibly can.

NICKY – its not all about Max and Chrissie – there are three of us in our team with the lovely Nicky who has been with us for years (even before the B&B) as our  housekeeper who you will see going about her duties to keep Piglets spick and span and up to scratch for you and always with a big smile on her face. We’d be lost without her!

Our focus: guest relaxing

As you may have already realised from reading our website and looking at our reviews, our main focus is to have our guests relax as quickly as possible and remain that way throughout their stay.
