About Nick & Gill Vile

Hi. I teach at the local primary school in Old Town and enjoy the peace and quiet of our lovely small holding.

I moved to Hebden Bridge in 1987 (for just one year, in fact) but we fell in love with Hebden Bridge as it is so well located & has everything you could possibly need. With terrific rail links to Leeds, Manchester, and many more it became the perfect place from which to commute - to my school in Blackburn while my husband travelled by train to Leeds. So we stayed and bought a little weavers cottage in the valley.

I love horses and animals so was always keen to buy some land and we moved to Carrs Farm in 1999. We lived in a caravan for 2 years while the farm was renovated. We have horses, a dog and a couple of adorable pygmy goats. The farm house took a long time and a lot of work but in 2010 we converted what was a farm building into our holiday cottage 'Piglet's House' It's been a huge success and I love meeting people & welcoming them to stay. Our guests regularly comment favourably on the stunning views from our balcony, the peace and quiet, the cosy log fire, the 'easy to walk to' local pub and how fabulous Hebden Bridge is.

Nick & Gill Vile purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Nick & Gill Vile chose Yorkshire Dales

Piglet's House is detached and it has unrivalled views across the valley. Stoodley Pike can easily be seen in the distance and the views are across green fields to the East and South with views of Heptonstall with its church to the west. The cottage is in Old Town with its own pub, Post Office, cricket club, golf club, park & equestrian centre. There are stunning walks on the moors above us - within 5 minutes.

It takes about 15 min to walk into Hebden Bridge but 20 + on the way it's up hill!!

However, taxis are easy to book and the fare is about £4 / 5.

There are buses up to Old Town too.

Hebden Bridge is well worth a visit. We believe it has something for everyone. It's generally very dog friendly too.

What makes this cottage unique

Piglet's House is cosy in Winter & cool in Summer. If the weather is good, then a glass of wine or a beer on the balcony provides the perfect chance to relax & unwind. The view is stunning and we often get the most incredible sunsets. The balcony is south / SW facing so it captures the best hours of the day.

Piglet's House has its own car park with additional space for visitors. The parking is very accessible, next to the cottage & off-road.

As Piglet's House is all on one level, it is wheelchair accessible. There is a wood burning stove for the Winter nights although we leave the central heating (with thermostat) on 24/7.

Our 2 pygmy goats are your immediate neighbours. Grantley is a bit shy but his girlfriend, Scout is very friendly. They both adore any guests who give them green vegetable peelings. Many of our guests comment on how much they enjoy watching them from the kitchen window. Children, and most dogs love them!

An oasis of calm and tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful 5 days at Piglets House just after Christmas, accompanied by Floyd, our very large dog. What a beautiful place! We had breakfast looking out across the fields, and in the evening snuggled up in front of the wood burning stove. Piglets house was charming: very private, spotlessly clean, very well equipped, only a short walk from the dog-friendly pub, and surrounded by lovely walks. Nick and Jill could not have been more friendly and made us feel right at home. We would definitely recommend Piglets House and very much hope to return ourselves in the not too distant future.

Ideal in every respect

  • 5 of 5

The visit to the cottage, local area ,including the welcoming hospitality were all that were hoped for.

The location of Hebden Bridge is ideal, near yet far enough and worth a visit.

Walks from the cottage are peacefully scenic in almost every most direction.

The ideal retreat not far off the beaten track, but able give the impression it is.
