The Pig at Bridge Place

Three miles south of Canterbury, the Pig at Bridge Place is the sixth property in the Pig portfolio from Home Grown Hotels, headed by chairman Robin Hutson. The 17th-century manor house combines an ornate Jacobean interior with a rock and roll vibe, stemming from its time as Bridge Place Country Club, when it played host to the likes of Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd during the 1970s.

The main house, which has retained its period features, houses seven bedrooms, with a further 12 bedrooms in the Coach House. More rooms have been created in seven Hop Pickers Huts, created from reclaimed materials. Judy Hutson has overseen the interior design throughout.

Like all the Pig hotels, a kitchen garden and restaurant will be at the heart of the property. Anything that cannot be supplied by the gardens will be sourced from Kent producers within a 25-mile radius.
