Our Inspector's view

Located in the Kentish countryside, THE PIG at Bridge Place is an impeccably presented 16th-century country house. Characterful lounges have been beautifully restored and retain large fireplaces, wooden panels and lots of places to explore. The extremely high quality, comfortable bedrooms are spread across the Main House, Coach House, Lodge, Barn, and Old Stables. There are also the Kentish Hop Pickers’ Huts which sit alongside the river each with their own log burner. Treatments can be taken in the Potting Shed and there is also the Kitchen Garden which provides some of the ingredients for the renowned restaurant with its open kitchen.

About the area

Discover Kent

The White Cliffs of Dover are an English icon – the epitome of our island heritage and sense of nationhood. They also mark the point where the Kent Downs AONB, that great arc of chalk downland stretching from the Surrey Hills and sometimes known as ‘the Garden of England’, finally reaches the sea. This is a well-ordered and settled landscape, where chalk and greensand escarpments look down into the wooded Weald to the south.

Many historic parklands, including Knole Park and Sir Winston Churchill’s red-brick former home at Chartwell, are also worth visiting. Attractive settlements such as Charing, site of Archbishop Cranmer’s Tudor palace, and Chilham, with its magnificent half-timbered buildings and 17th-century castle built on a Norman site, can be found on the Pilgrim’s Way, the traditional route for Canterbury-bound pilgrims in the Middle Ages. 

In the nature reserves, such as the traditionally coppiced woodlands of Denge Wood and Earley Wood, and the ancient fine chalk woodland of Yockletts Bank high on the North Downs near Ashford, it is still possible to experience the atmosphere of wilderness that must have been felt by the earliest travellers along this ancient ridgeway.
