The Pig – at Bridge Place – Canterbury, Kent
Every Pig in this magnificent drove has its own personality; the sixth, which opened last May, has a rock ‘n’ roll vibe that’s immediately evident. The 29-bedroom, grade II*-listed, Queen Anne manor house, set in the Nailbourne valley outside Canterbury, sports a handsome red-brick façade and ornate Jacobean interior, yet it also has a colourful recent past. The likes of Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd have gigged and partied here, and now it’s your turn to have a ball, amid a wealth of period features, secret stairways, panelled rooms and endless nooks and crannies, all brought to life by Home Grown Hotels’ CEO Robin Hutson and his renowned designer wife Judy, with her eye for effortless, laid-back chic. As with every other Pig, the kitchen garden and restaurant are the beating heart of the revitalised property. If you’ve pigged out on the others, this new trough is pure clover: you’ll be seduced, charmed and ready to party, all at the same time.
