While the hotel oozes luxury, it boasts a family-friendly feel and hosts an array of children’s activities making it an ideal stay for the whole family. The spa facilities certainly do not disappoint and with their vast menu of tailored treatments, you’ll be feeling refreshed and recharged in no time.

The Pig on the Beach, Dorset
Tucked away on the coast, all 23 rooms at The Pig boast little luxuries – from four-poster beds to Nespresso machines.

Head down to the shepherds’ huts overlooking Old Harry Rocks for some spa treatments with a view.
