Piglets Boutique B&B

Wimbish Village, Saffron Walden


Rural, modern, adult only

In the midst of stunning, unspoiled Essex countryside is this luxury adult only B&B, offering superb food and surprises like a natural swimming pond, games room, Péntanque terrain and gym. 

The Location

Wimbish, just outside of historic and beautiful Saffron Walden, is a green and peaceful oasis. Surrounded by incredible countryside there are innumerable walks to choose from (one of which starts literally outside the front door) and other countryside pursuits. Explore ancient towns nearby and soak up the space and the rather good food and drink on offer close by.

Piglets Boutique B&B is 40 minutes from Cambridge, less than an hour from London on the train and an hour and half by car.

  • The surprises at this luxury B&B, like the pool, the gym, the hotel standard bathrooms, the Mediterranean patio… and more
  • Breakfasts are superb and the Honour Bar offers bits and pieces to keep you going if the thought of leaving the poolside is too much to bear
  • The rooms are individual, spacious and bright, two of them designed with those less mobile in mind and all with smart flat screen TVs
  • We love the balcony off the Ashdon room, with its views across the pond and orchard
  • The area is rammed full of amazing places to explore and things to experience (see Chrissie and Max’s suggestions)
  • It’s so easy to get to Piglets Boutique B&B that it makes for a perfect short break away if you can’t stay longer
  • Five en suite bedrooms, three on the ground floor and two easier access (Widdington and Hempstead)
  • Spacious communal areas including lounge and TV room
  • Superb leisure facilities including pool, games room with full size snooker table, cycle shed, Péntanque and gym
  • Breakfast included but also lunchtime salads in the summer and evening meals including Tapas and platter options available
  • Honesty bar with 19 house wines available and over 50 classic and artisan small batch gins
  • Adult only, boutique luxury B&B so no under 18s, rowdy groups or pets



The site of Piglets Boutique B&B has been in Max’s family since the 1940s and seen incarnations as a piggery and the home of the family’s luxury game company. Max and wife Chrissie have run the B&B since 2019 and very much enjoy sharing their home and providing guests with that extra bit of care.
