I firmly believe the best way to make it through the sometimes (always?) gloomy winter months (January / February / March only of course) is to make a plan in December for a trip away. This doesn't need to be a two week holiday in the Bahamas - though that would really help those winter blues - it can be anything from a daytrip somewhere you've always wanted to go, or a weekend retreat in the countryside. If you're looking for inspiration for the latter, our latest Piglet Stays may be just that. Meet: The Farmstead.
The Farmstead is a beautiful collection of luxury lodges that can found in the peaceful Suffolk countryside, surrounded by idyllic woodlands, fields, and riverside paths. The eight lodges - made from reclaimed wood and sustainable materials by local crafts people - are designed to sit naturally amongst the wildflower meadows where they are located. Similarly, in the rustic interiors you'll find a self-catering handmade kitchen, an open plan living space complete with log burner, spacious en-suite bathrooms and a stylish bedroom featuring either one or two beds - and of course, luscious linen sheets by Piglet in Bed. One of the standout features of each lodge is the beautiful veranda where you are invited to have your breakfast or to relax of an evening with a glass of wine, after enjoying your private outdoor bath that is.
