The Historic Pig and Whistle Inn offers welcoming and comfortable accommodation for travellers from near and far, local and international.

The 10 rooms have an authentic old English feel, and are all furnished with antique furniture in keeping with the atmosphere of the inn and its status as a national monument, along with modern Sealy Posturepedic beds and new percale linen. Of the 10 rooms, four are en-suite, and six are the original 1830's rooms with shared bathroom facilities. If the age and history of the hotel give you a thrill, ask to stay in room five or room six, both of which were originally the top storey bedrooms of Thomas Hartley's personal home, built in 1821.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Rates are deemed correct at time of publication and may fluctuate depending on supply and demand. Establishments maintain their rates online and any differences should be referred to the Establishment's staff. Quotations once accepted are binding.
