Robin Hutson's third Pig hotel to open in March 2014

Robin Hutson's latest Pig hotel, near Bath, is set to open in March 2014.

The 29-bedroom hotel was bought by Home Grown Hotels in May from Andrew Davis, the founder of the now defunct Von Essen Hotels.

It will be run by Tom Ross, who was named hotel director in July, and will become the third property in the highly acclaimed Pig group alongside hotels in the New Forest and Southampton.

Located in the Mendip Hills, seven miles from Bath and 12 miles from Bristol, the Pig - near Bath will stand in 77-acres of grounds, which includes a walled garden and a deer park with 100 fallow deer. It is housed in a Georgian property, previously known as Hunstrete House.

The hotel, featuring Judy Hutson's shabby chic style that has become the Pig's signature look, will offer a restaurant that will draw heavily on produce grown in its own gardens and spa treatment rooms.

Meanwhile, the Pig - on the Beach in Studland bay, Dorset, is also currently under development and is expected to launch in spring 2014.

The Pig records 90% occupancy and £3.6m turnover during 2012 >>

The Pig is to expand following purchase of Hunstrete House >>
