We are very excited to share with you that we will be opening the doors to THE PIG-at Bridge Place in May 2019.
Formerly Bridge Place Country Club, THE PIG-at Bridge Place is a 17th century manor house just outside the historic village of Bridge in the Nailbourne valley, three miles south of Canterbury, Kent.
We will be opening bookings for THE PIG-at Bridge Place early in 2019.
Another two exciting additions to our litter will then give us a trotter-hold in every South Coast county of England.
In the West, for those Poldark lovers out there, we have bought the Grade II-listed Harlyn House near Padstow in Cornwall. This stunning building, with incredible views of the coast, will require change of use consents to become THE PIG-at Harlyn Bay, but with a fair wind, should open in autumn/winter 2019.
Finally in West Sussex, the Grade II-listed Madehurst Lodge, near Arundel, was acquired last year and, all being equal, will be opening as The South Downs Pig in 2020.
As with every Pig, the kitchen garden and restaurant will provide the beating heart of these new properties; anything that can’t be supplied by the gardens will be sourced from the best producers within a 25-mile radius.

With its welcoming red brick façade and ornate Jacobean interior, Bridge Place is an intriguing old building with a rock-n-roll vibe. Over the past four decades this musical honeypot 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.
Outside the main house a new, carefully designed Coach House will accommodate 12 more bedrooms, while seven fitting Hop Pickers’ Huts are being crafted from reclaimed materials and will sit within the grounds. Each hut houses a double bedroom with cosy bathroom and wood-burning stove. With a newly restored gate lodge offering two further bedrooms, THE PIG-at Bridge Place will have 28 rooms.
The Coach House will contain a greenhouse restaurant with open kitchen. Next to that the Old Stables will contain two treatment rooms and one huge upstairs-downstairs rustic bedroom, with private terrace and quadruple aspect overlooking the kitchen garden and water meadows.
Bookings will open for THE PIG-at Bridge Place early in 2019.
