EXPERT REVIEWS

The Guardian - The signage hints at luxury, yet the name has earthiness, and suggests gluttony. You could be forgiven for expecting a pub with rooms, but you'd be wide of the mark. At the top of a long drive, a pale country house is garlanded in wisteria. Stone dogs guard a blue door, tantalisingly ajar to reveal an arrangement of old watering cans and soft fronds of greenery atop polished wood, in a hallway of oak which unfurls towards reception. Beds are luxurious, and the grey and matt marble bathrooms perfectly judged. read more
The Telegraph - To one side of the elegant main hallway is a large bar and attractive conservatory restaurant, full of plants in terracotta pots; to the other side are two comfortable, shabby-chic sitting rooms that spill out into a terrace with a wood-burning fireplace for pizzas and grills. The hotel’s main feature is its huge walled kitchen garden, which was derelict before being restored when it became The Pig. Beyond the walled garden there are, of course, pigs, plus tranquil ponds and a hidden treatment room in a converted shepherd’s hut. read more
CNTraveler - The Pig hotels are a frisky phenomenon that have batted the country-house concept into the long grass and gathered a band of loyal followers. Stepping straight into the ancient Great Hall, softly lit, fire crackling in an enormous grate, panelled walls dark and shiny as liquorice, there was a sense of being spirited back in time. The Great Hall's panelling is now stripped, with deliberate roughness - a backdrop to warm colour, pattern and clever things such as beautiful lampshades made from vintage sari silks. read more
The Independent - The bedrooms are in the country house's old stable yard. They have wooden floors. A key design feature is the hefty log pile in a rectangular wall-space. An old-style telephone, the kind you dial with your finger, sits beside the bed. The bath is old and claw-footed. An old-style leather-clad Roberts radio is tuned to Radio 4 (of course). It's wonderful. This hotel room is the accommodation equivalent of comfort-eating. It's newly and beautifully renovated but it feels at least 50 years old. read more
