Welcome to THE PIG-at Bridge Place
Just 56 minutes by train from central London, tucked away just outside the historic village of Bridge, three miles south of Canterbury, find our latest PIG of the litter, a red-bricked musical honeypot.
An intriguing old building with a rock-n-roll vibe, which over the past four decades has been home to some renowned parties and gigs playing host in the ‘70s to Led Zeppelin and the like.
It houses lots of period features, including large fireplaces, secret stairways, panelled rooms and endless nooks and crannies. In the refurb, all of these structural nuances are being respected and enhanced to create seven bedrooms along with numerous cosy bars and sitting areas.
A love of good food
The Coach House is home to the restaurant, filled with signature PIG touches but feeling markedly different to its sister restaurants with a kitchen that opens-up into the space, letting you in on the action.
Stay with us
With far reaching views out across the Kentish countryside, all bedrooms are finished in our signature style, but with some exciting new additions. There are 7 characterful bedrooms in the main house, 12 light and spacious rooms in the Coach House, 2 family friendly lodges; and The Barn, a rustic romantic two-storey hideaway in the old stables.
Additionally, 7 Kentish Hop Pickers’ Huts on stilts sit alongside the river in the grounds, each has been made from reclaimed materials and has a double-bedroom with fitted bathroom and wood burning stove.
If you are looking to stay with us over the Christmas or New Year period, please call us on 0345 225 9494 for availability.
