THE PIG–at Combe is nestled in the Otter Valley near Honiton, Devon. Secluded,  mellow, honey-coloured Elizabethan gem is set in 3,500 acres of lush Devonshire countryside, yet easily accessible - being 1.5 miles from Honiton, just off the A30 in the village of Gittisham. It is 8 miles from the East Devon coast, 15 mins to Exeter, 1 hour to Bristol and just over 3 hours to London.

There is no predictability...

This is no ‘cookie-cutter roll-out’. We have turned the traditional layout of a hotel on its head!

The historic entrance and Great Hall has been converted to the main bar, completely changing the traditional arrival experience – head straight to the heart of the action in a house of fun not formality.

Gone is the formal lounge seating, replaced with a long bar, oversized sofas, and chairs to properly curl up in along with an inviting roaring fire.

Dining with a difference

Out goes the panelled and formal banqueting and drawing rooms to create a new restaurant where informality rules.

There is no polished panelling, pelmets and fitted carpets; instead it’s stripped back to signature bare wood floors and restored shutters. A restored principal double-height bricked up window brings light and incredible Devon views into the heart of the room.

 

The former dining rooms are snug and cosy sitting rooms leading off the bar for more chilling and quaffing by open fires.

The old garden folly is ‘semi-restored’ (meaning almost, but not really) giving us the new style descriptive of ‘derelict chic’. It creates an atmospheric indoor/outdoor bar and dining area with wood fired oven, tables and benches and lots of cigars!

A touch of luxury

We have 30 rooms, 17 in the main house, 10 in the stable yard and Curlditch Cottages.

The bedrooms in the main house are spacious and classic PIG style with far reaching views. The new additions here are the three rafter rooms in the previously unused attic spaces.

We have 10 stable yard bedrooms converted from the old stables and coach houses – these retain much of the original features, partitions and even flooring and tiling.

Exploring our patch and local area

THE PIG-at Combe is just off the A30 in the village of Gittisham, just 1.5 miles from Honiton. It is 8 miles from the south Devon coast and 15 mins to Exeter.

Totally secluded, THE PIG-at Combe is set in 3,500 acres of lush Devonshire countryside in the pretty thatched village of Gittisham.

We're just five minutes from the market town of Honiton, famous for both Honiton lace and Honiton pottery. Regarded as the antiques capital of the South West, why not walk the Bric-a-Brac trail with 38 shops to wile the afternoon away.

Exeter city is just 15 minutes away, there you can visit the Gothic Cathedral or shop along Exeter's cobbled alleyways.
