Dine Locally and Sleep Comfortably on the Dorset CoastSet on a hill along the Dorset coast, this fifth “Pig” inn from Brit hotelier Robin Hutson is a 29-room retreat furnished with freestanding baths, four-poster beds, and framed vintage botanical prints. In keeping with the Pig’s restaurant-with-rooms ethos, items on the daily menu reflect what is growing in the garden or, like the Dorset trout and Purbeck turkey, are sourced within a 25-mile radius. Come June, you’ll be able to pair your visit here with a night at the new Pig at Combe, an Elizabethan-era inn 70 miles west.
Check Out: The 11th-century ruins of Corfe Castle, built by William the Conqueror, 15 minutes away by car; or Studland Beach, a five-minute walk. From $200.
