The Pig - at Bridge Place

Nestled just outside the historic village of Bridge and three miles south of Canterbury, The Pig at Bridge Place is a red-bricked beauty ready to be explored.
One of a litter of seven Pig sites across the country, Bridge Place will not disappoint. Whether a weary traveller in need of a hearty meal and some respite, or a weekend reveller who desires a relaxing break from their humdrum working week, this venue has it all.

And indeed, the intriguing old building has seen it all through its many years of existence, and over the past four decades has played host to some wild parties and bands including Led Zeppelin in the 1970s.

Many period features await you, from huge warming fireplaces to secret stairways and endless nooks and crannies to tuck yourself in with a book or a glass of something delicious.

Food at the Pig will play a central role during your visit, with dishes prepared using ingredients from the garden.

But of course, you’re not just here to eat but also to rest and relax. The rooms at the Pig will astound you with their quirky charm and old features, caringly restored and emphasised through years of love.

There are seven bedrooms in the main house, so you know you’ll have a quiet night’s sleep, with a further 12 bright boudoirs in the Coach House and two-family friendly lodges.

But, if you’re feeling a little more adventurous, why not stay in one of the Pig’s seven Kentish Hop Pickers’ Huts, which sit grandly on stilts along the river in the grounds of the main house. Each has been made using reclaimed materials and play host to a double bedroom with a fitted bathroom and a cosy wood burning stove for those chilly nights.

Why not complete your trip with one of the many exclusive treatments on offer in the Potting Shed spa, featuring a choice of hot stone massages; upper body treatments and bespoke facials to name a few.
