Nestled in the folds of the Mendip Hills, The Pig Hotel near Bath is a charming countryside retreat in the heart of rural Somerset.
This 18th Century grade II listed building boasts an onsite vegetable patch, pigs and chickens and anything that can not be foraged or found within the grounds is sourced from local suppliers within a 25 mile radius.
Food is served in the greenhouse restaurant, there is a well stocked bar with various home made infusions (I had a great bloody mary with horseradish vodka) a private dining room, numerous drawing rooms and lounge areas with roaring fires and comfy arm chairs to relax in.
There are 29 bedrooms, each decorated in signature shabby chic style with beautiful stripped back floorboards, some with four poster beds and claw foot baths and all with Bramley body products.
To get a true sense of the area pull on some wellies and take a walk a little further afield, we took the 2 hour pub walk to nearby local pub The Compton Inn
Afterwards why not treat yourself to a massage in the potting shed spa?!
By nightfall you cannot fail to feel rested and refreshed!
