Home Grown Hotels will launch its third hotel, The Pig near Bath — formally known as Hunstrete House Hotel — in March 2014.
The property, which is now taking bookings, will be designed in a ‘shabby chic’ style like its sister properties The Pig in the New Forest and The Pig in the Wall, Hampshire.
It will feature 29 bedrooms, a greenhouse restaurant, a private room for dinner parties and the group’s signature spa concept the Potting Shed.
Informal areas have been created in the walled gardens of the converted Georgian house, with a wood-fired oven in the courtyard.
The group, led by CEO Robin Hutson, is known for its local, ‘home-grown’ approach to F&B.
Hutson told Boutique Hotelier in September that the hotels were up to 75% self sufficient in vegetables, also farming pigs and chickens on hotel land.
On the property website, it states that all ingredients that cannot be grown in the garden will be sourced within 25 miles.
The Pig near Bath is set in 20 acres of woodland and deer park, a 10-minute drive from Bath.
The launch will be the first of two openings planned for 2014, with the second property ‘The Pig on the Beach’ opening in Dorset.
