The Pig at Harlyn Bay has recorded the ‘fastest ever’ bookings to a new hotel in the Piggy portfolio, ahead of its opening in May.
Owner and founder Robin Hutson tweeted yesterday that there had already been 1,000 room nights booked for the new addition in Cornwall within the first three hours of the reservation lines being open.
Bookings launched yesterday, Tuesday 11 February, with Hutson taking to Twitter to express his delight at the initial reaction.
“Fastest bookings flow to a new hotel ever – reservations team @The_Pig_Hotel doing an amazing job, thanks guys #thepigatharlynbay”
Once open in May, the Pig at Harlyn Bay will become the seventh hotel in the collection, part of Home Grown Hotels.
The Pig at Harlyn Bay is set within a Grade-II listed mansion dating back to the 16th century, which sits at the end of a long driveway surrounded by almost five acres of gardens.
As well as a welcoming reception area, snug bar and relaxing Map Room, the new property will be home to a restaurant, a wine store and private dining room all ‘full of Cornish character’.
Upstairs in the main house, there are 11 bedrooms, with a further 15 bedrooms in the stables, which sit left to the main building.
Rooms will be split into the recognisable categories as well as new ones including Snug with Terrace, Little Look Out and Even Bigger Comfy Luxe.
There will also be four of the ‘most sexiest’ Shepherd’s Huts, situated on the way to the kitchen garden. All rooms and spaces have been designed by Judy Hutson, the creative behind the look and feel of all The Pigs in the litter.
The kitchen garden at The Pig at Harlyn Bay is currently being restored to its former glory. There are also two Potting Sheds where spa treatments will be offered.
A new addition to this Pig is The Lobster Shed, a separate alfresco food offering in the gardens of the hotel.
The grill and wood oven will be housed in a shed made from reclaimed materials with a terrace with tables for outdoor drop-in dining, serving local seafood and flatbreads and drinks.
The space will also offer outdoor showers.
Following the opening of The Pig at Harlyn Bay, attention will turn to the launch of The Pig in the South Downs set for spring 2021.
