THE PIG, BROCKENHURST
Nestled amongst fields of heather in the heart of Britain’s New Forest, lies The Pig, Brockenhurst. A 30th birthday treat, we booked our weekend away through boutique hideaway specialists i-escape.
Only an hour or so South but a world away from the bustle of London life, the charm of this 17th century manor house and its sweeping, picturesque grounds is instant. The brainchild of hotelier Robin Hutson (of Lime Wood House and Hotel du Vin), the former royal hunting lodge has been transformed into a shabby, comfortable and cosy yet effortlessly stylish country retreat. Perfect for Londoners who love the big city but crave wood fires, wilderness walks and a rural escape every now and then.
