What our guests say about our many games on offer at Piglets…
With mental health foremost in the media these days we feel we should make special mention of what’s available here at Piglets to stimulate the mind or simply relax.
In our guest lounge, aside from the many books and journals to read you will find the world’s finest board games (which are still made on site by Max’s family business) to stimulate one’s little grey cells… championship Backgammon, Chess and Scrabble are contained within our farmhouse style luxury multi games table.
Decks of cards lie on the coffee table as does another 1960s leather Backgammon board.
In the Boot Room we also have jigsaws available.
For those requiring a less sedentary challenge our extensive games room offers:
Un petit coin de France (or our French patio) and outdoor gaming
To get you in the mood for a Provencal game of Péntanque, we have created a little corner of France where you can enjoy a glass of pastis as well as puff on a Gitanes or a Gaulouises without disturbing others.
This private area is decorated with vintage metal French signs to evoke the inner gallic in you – we have stopped short of demanding you wear a beret or have a string of onions around your neck.
We just hope you will enjoy watching a game of boule or gaze upon the croquet green in the distance.
We are pleased to announce our Croquet lawn is now ready for play and is dedicated to our beloved gardener, Derek, who worked on preparing this but sadly never got to see it finished.
Nothing quite matches the sound or mallet on ball as the chink of a glass of Pimm’s does (available from the bar) on an English summer afternoon.
