THE PIG – at Harlyn Bay postpones opening

UK: The Grade-II listed mansion, marking the group’s first site in Cornwall, will delay its original May opening due to the uncertainty of coronavirus.

Comprising 11 bedrooms, the hotel is set within five acres of gardens and features a restaurant, private dining room, a snug, a lounge, and a kitchen garden.

An additional 15 rooms and four private huts are housed in separate buildings.

Robin Hutson, chairman and executive of Lime Wood Group and Home Grown Hotels, said: “The latest advice is to avoid restaurants and bars without specifying a ban on these venues so until instructed otherwise, we will be remaining open and welcoming guests into our hotels, whilst all the time upholding the strictest health and hygiene measures.”

“Unfortunately and with a heavy heart we have taken the decision today to postpone the opening of THE PIG – at Harlyn Bay to probably sometime in June when the situation is clearer.”

“We are doing our utmost to ride out this uncertain and difficult global crisis and look after our dedicated team of people to ensure our hotels can and will provide you with a warm welcome escape to the countryside.”

THE PIG – at Harlyn Bay is the seventh hotel in the collection. Over 1,000 room nights were allocated within the first three hours of the reservation lines being open in February.

Once the hotel has launched, Hutson along with his wife and business partner Judy will focus attention on opening THE PIG – in the South Downs, scheduled for 2021.
