This luxury hotel opening is close to my home and my heart. The Pig chain seems to be able to do no wrong with the hugely popular Pig on the beach just across the water from me, The Pig in the Forest nestled in the New Forest, and the Pig near Bath, which is plonked just outside the beautiful Spa town of Bath (if you prefer to be in the centre of Bath you must read my review of the Royal Crescent which is my favourite central Bath hotel).
All the hotels, described as restaurants with rooms, offer stylish rustic chic rooms around restaurants which focus in on local produce.
This new hotel will be located in the beautiful Elizabethan hideaway, Combe House Devon and is the hotel group’s first hotel in Devon. Located in 3,500 acres of Devonshire countryside, adjoining the village of Gittisham near Honiton in Otter Valley, the newest addition to the hotel group is set to open in April 2016.
As to the name, what do we think? The Pig Devon? The Pig Combe House? The Pig near Honiton? Who knows, who cares but this little gem is on my must travel to list for 2016.
Update: The name of this new gem will be THE PIG-at Combe.
