Exclusive Hotel Guru offer

The Pig is offering all Hotel Guru guest a complimentary upgrade (subject to availability).

“This hotel is the ultimate home from home. Stylish, without over decoration, quirky, friendly and warm. All the rooms are full of character, but go for the Lookout room- a two storey little house. The bathroom on the second floor features a free standing bath, from which you can see views over the coast. Produce from the kitchen garden features on every dish on the menu, and if this is your sort of thing, then you may also accompany the hotel's 'forager' on hunts for goodies. The homely feel is extended to breakfast where you can boil your own eggs, before trotting down to the Sheep huts for some spa treatments. Beach walks, four poster beds and character-filled rooms; a wonderful country weekend. ”

They say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Many of our guests say that it has a ‘home from home’ feel, allowing them to really unwind whilst they stay with us. We also have a fantastic productive kitchen garden where every dish served in the restaurant will include something from the garden. We are also located in Studland Bay with stunning views of the coastline and only a stone’s throw away from the beach.

What is there to do in the area or on site?
Fantastic coastal walks from the hotel which take you straight onto the sandy Studland beaches. Go foraging with our local expert, guiding you to some of the deepest and most secret areas in search of wild produce. Two ‘Sheep Huts’ offering a variety of treatments. The area is well known for its walking, horse riding and watersports and all available within a short distance from the property.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
A light buffet breakfast, plenty of homemade goodies and also several cooked dishes including a full cooked breakfast or you can boil your own eggs!

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
We have a snack menu which is served between 2.30-5.30pm each day which has a variety of light snack options including flat breads cooked in our outdoor wood fire oven.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?
The two storey Lookout, which is in one of the two dovecotes, with gorgeous views of the kitchen garden and stunning coastline. The bedroom is on the lower floor with a four poster bed; the bathroom is upstairs with a free standing bath and monsoon shower. In the main house we have the Generous Rooms, each very individual in its style but all light and airy, and with views across the coastline.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
As readers of Hotel Guru, we would be delighted to offer a complimentary upgrade on the day. Subject to availability.”
