I just got back from a trip to the countryside to visit my grandparents in the New Forest and after visiting them decided to check out The Pig before driving back to London as I had heard many a good thing about it.
I only popped in for a coffee but from the moment I arrived I knew it was somewhere I liked and would be coming back to. ‘The Pig‘ is a country house hotel designed to give a real countryside escape from London experience.
It is full of comfy sofas and big open fires that make it all feel very homely. Yet it is also chic and smart in a stylish understated way. The vibe is very relaxed as though it were a second home but with the advantage of everything being taken care of. As I said I only had a coffee but I’d love to come back and check out the rooms and what looked like a rather wonderful restaurant.
