The hotel room that really is a pigsty

The Impeccable Pig in County Durham is a newly converted coach house where all the rooms have a porcine theme.

The newly opened Impeccable Pig at Sedgefield in County Durham has converted an old coach house within its grounds into 10 bedrooms across two floors - including The Pigsty.

It contains a seven-foot bed, large freestanding bath and walk-in rainforest shower. Its own private garden is festooned with a canopy of lights, has a four-seater hot tub and an outside sauna. Those who fancy a barbecue in the warmer months can even hire their own chef.

Continuing the porcine theme, other rooms include the timber-panelled The Whole Hog, Oinkers and Globe Trotter, whose bed is adorned with Moroccan brick walls and deep blue tiles.



French-themed Le Cochon D'or features hanging foliage with blossom and gold tiles, while Three Little Pigs gives a nod to the storybook characters through the use of bricks, sticks and straw.

"Our aim in creating The Impeccable Pig was to make it fun, with such great food and drink, that no-one wanted to leave," said general manager Pierre Bertolotti.

"And now our fantastic new rooms are finished, they don’t have to."
