All Pigs are equal, with their shabby chic aesthetic, their recycled and repurposed furnishings, 25-mile menus and prolific kitchen gardens, but this Grade I listed Elizabethan Manor has no fewer than three walled gardens – for vegetables, herbs and infusions. Collectively the particular six Pig hotels generate around 17 tons of organic produce a year, including mushrooms grown on coffee grounds. Garden waste is composted, cooking oil reused, fish MSC approved. Beehives provide honey and pollinators. Welsh Belu Water is bottled in 35 percent recycled glass, with profits donated to WaterAid. Plastic wrapping is out, used menus reappear as coasters, plus guests receive a packet associated with strawberry seeds to plant at home.
