Weekend Retreat: The Piggery

Fallon Bespoke Joinery was delighted to help create short-stay holiday home The Piggery. With its distinct dome design, our brief was to create an escape from normal life and deliver a unique countryside experience.


As the juniper wood panels ascend to form the domed ceiling, they evoke a sense of grandeur, turning what was once a humble piggery into a captivating space. The interplay of natural light and the intricate patterns of the wood create an immersive experience, making the retreat a haven for relaxation and indulgence.

This thoughtful renovation doesn't just offer a picturesque escape; it invites you to appreciate the history of the space while revealing in the modern comforts it now provides. The use of juniper wood panelling on the domed roof is not just a design choice; it's a statement—a testament to the seamless fusion of heritage and luxury that defines this weekend retreat.


In the meticulous pursuit of a cohesive aesthetic for this weekend retreat, Fallon Bespoke Joinery meticulously crafted hardwood tables using a combination of ash and walnut, skilfully joined together with dovetail joints. This thoughtful selection of materials and craftsmanship was aimed at seamlessly complementing the enchanting juniper wood panelling that graces The Piggery's interior.

The choice of ash and walnut brings a captivating contrast and balance to the space, enhancing the visual appeal of the tables and echoing the rich tones of the juniper wood. Each table is a testament to precision, with dovetail joints adding not just structural integrity but also a touch of traditional craftsmanship that transcends time.


To complete the narrative of this special weekend retreat, we envisioned and brought to life a charming window seating area crafted from reclaimed wood. This thoughtful addition serves as the perfect bridge, seamlessly tying together the rustic allure of the original structure with the modern elegance introduced by the juniper wood panelling and hardwood tables.

The use of reclaimed wood not only adds a touch of eco-conscious design but also infuses the space with a sense of history and character. Each piece of wood tells a story, contributing to the unique tapestry of the building. The window seating area, positioned strategically to capture natural light and countryside views, becomes a focal point that invites relaxation and contemplation.

Our journey began with a commitment to preserve the historic charm while infusing contemporary elements. A key design choice involved adorning the domed roof with exquisite juniper wood panelling, providing not just structural integrity but also a warm, inviting ambiance.

Juniper wood, with its rich tones and natural grain, adds a touch of sophistication to the interior, creating an atmosphere that seamlessly blends luxury and the rustic charm of the original structure. The unique choice of materials contributes to an aesthetic that is both timeless and opulent.
