Things to do at THE PIG-at Combe
Exploring our patch tucked away in the Otter Valley...
THE PIG-at Combe, hidden within 3,500 acres of lush Devonshire greenery, is our mellow honey-coloured Elizabethan bolthole, bursting with character and quintessential countryside charm. With an assortment of snug rooms to cosy up in, three walled kitchen gardens to mooch around, enchanting grounds overlooked by our Garden Swing Seat from Sitting Spiritually to while away the day in, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to get up to!
Although totally secluded, THE PIG-at Combe is in easy reach of many of Devonshire’s hot spots! The hotel is situated just 8 miles from the East Devon coastline, meaning there’s a heap of things to get up to, both on land or out at sea.

Kitchen Garden Gurus at THE PIG-at Combe
Unearth your passion for plot to plate right in the midst of our Kitchen Gardens.
THE PIG has teamed up with Mark Diacono to host a series of adventurous ‘Grow Your Own’ workshops, for both aspiring gardeners and the more green-fingered among us. We will be sharing our seeds of knowledge that we have gathered over years of sowing, growing and cooking across the litter. Our workshops are designed to get you experimenting by rediscovering forgotten foods and exploring new ways to grow and prepare the best of the familiar.
Fishing at THE PIG-at Combe
The River Otter rises in the Blackdown Hills above Otterhead lakes and flows South West to the sea at Budleigh Salterton. It is a limestone trout stream that has many characteristics of a chalk stream and can be fished using the same tactics. There are 4 beats split over nearly 3 miles with deep pools, shallow runs and deep glides.
To add a fishing excursion to your stay you just need to bring yourself, your licence and your rods! Please ensure you do bring your own equipment as we do not supply it on site. Fishing needs to be pre-booked, and is located around 2 miles from THE PIG-at Combe.
