Pack up & PIG with last minute stays at THE PIG-on the beach
Pack up and go PIG with spontaneous stays!
The most unforgettable getaways are often the most spontaneous! Whether you’re looking to escape the city, explore the countryside or just recharge your batteries, head to THE PIG-on the beach to get away from it all...
Occasionally we have last-minute availability during the week and at weekends… why not pack up for an impromptu trip away?
Really a restaurant with rooms, we have an obsessive commitment to home-grown and local produce. What we can’t grow or rear ourselves, we source from the surrounding Studland and Dorset area, creating our 25-mile menu. Get away from it all with sink-in sofas, miles of countryside and coast to explore, locally-sourced suppers, Kitchen Garden wanderings, relaxing VOYA treatments in our rustic Sheep Huts and beds so cosy you won't want to leave!
Each PIG has its own unique identity and staying with us in Dorset is no different. You’re right in the heart of it over here, with no short of things to do, situated on the Jurassic Coast, just a stone's throw from Old Harry's Rocks, a short drive to picturesque seaside towns and villages, and whole host of land and sea activities for adventure-seekers!
THE PIG-on the beach has last-minute availability on all room types - there's something for everyone!
