Imagine spending time in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities followed by a stay in one of its most scenic rural spots – and all the while enjoying the same luxury, homely charm and attention to detail? Well, thanks to THE PIG’s expanding litter, you now can.
Back in October, THE PIG, the award-winning New Forest -based country hotel, was joined by THE PIG-in the wall, a stylish hotel nestled within Southampton’s historic medieval walls.
Now these two charming siblings have joined forces to offer guests a stay of two halves.
Spend some time in Southampton, the cultural and commercial capital of the south, home to a myriad of museums, art galleries and theatres that also boasts superb shopping facilities. THE PIG–in the wall is located close to the city centre, making it ideal for exploring, or perhaps some New Year sales shopping. And all from a midweek rate of just £115 a night.
Mirroring THE PIG’s shabby chic style - along with its signature touches like bedroom 'larders' stocked with snacks and drinks and Nespresso machines - this little piglet has 12 bedrooms and a deli bar serving PIG charcuterie boards, homemade sausage rolls, soups, salads and great wines by the glass! Those looking for something a little more substantial can jump into one of the Land Rovers and enjoy a complimentary ride to THE PIG for lunch or dinner, recently voted the Sustainable Restaurant of the Year by the SRA .Simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons and influenced by the forest and coast -what can't be grown in the Kitchen Garden, or in the extensive vegetable and fruit beds, is sourced locally within 25 miles - This immediacy from garden to plate is THE PIG’s trademark.
Alternatively you may prefer to spend the night in this forest gem, midweek rate from £129 a night.
