The Pig in the South Downs – Madehurst, West Sussex

Set within the small hamlet of Madehurst, The Pig, high up on the South Downs in West Sussex, threw open its doors in September 2021 – complete with its own vineyard. And Pig owner Robin Hutson has done it again, creating a haven of rural bliss for his seventh hotel. Only four miles from Arundel and a short drive to the yachting playground of Chichester, it’s a brilliant base for exploring – but also great for hunkering down. The 28 lovingly restored bedrooms are spread out between a higgledy-piggledy collection of traditional brick, flint and timber-clad stable yard buildings, together with Field and Garden Wagons. Each is unique and classically Pig – think indulgent fabrics, reclaimed wood, roll-top baths and locally-stocked larders. The wagons, tucked away in the walled garden or in the fields, are super cosy with log burners. The food, with its 25-Mile Menu, is, as ever, terrific. It’s simple British food done well with a focus on local and homegrown produce – plus there’s a wide-ranging wine list and large kitchen garden.

Doubles from £225
