Roadtripping with Keanu to The Pig at Combe

posted on: Saturday, 7 December 2019

This is the story of a girl, her trusty steed and a journey far far away from London, England. Slight exaggeration there. I didn't ride a horse all the way from London to Exeter for a hotel stay. I may have an old school 18th century heart, but I am forever thankful for 21st century transportation. For one weekend, Keanu (yes, I've named my car and you can read all about our special relationship here) and I drove three hours southwest of London, to explore The Pig at Combe for the first time. I was invited as a guest of ZenAuto, who are the folks responsible for me finding the love of my life - Keanu! They wanted us to have a romantic weekend away together. Just me, Keanu, and the open road in front of us. I couldn't have asked for anything better to celebrate six months of a relationship that's been nothing but insane happiness and joy. No, truly, I've never had a better car experience and that's down to ZenAuto entirely. So I've said it once and I'll say it again and again - ZenAuto are simply the best when it comes to everything car leasing in the UK. I'm already planning my next lease with them and I'm only six months into this one! But, enough about that. Let's get hotel talking. The Pig - where to start? There are Pig Hotels dotted all over England and I can't believe it's taken me so long to have my first experience in one. But, I can say, heart on hand, it won't be my last. I am a solid fan. When people ask me where to stay outside of London, I now point my finger in the direction of the nearest Pig. One look at the pictures below and you'll totally see why. But, let's dive a little deeper before we make this solely a picture book experience.

Shop The Look: The London woodlands on Elizabeth Street

Holiday Elizabeth Street London
So I found this little storefront on Elizabeth Street as I was passing the other morning. It's like a little woodlands popup in the middle of London. There are logs, shearling throws and twinkling lights just waiting for something. What that is I don't know. But, I took it as an invitation to stand just so and assume a sultry look. Trust me, I'm feeling festive on the inside.

Shop The Look: Christmas Tree Heaven

You better not be sick of Christmas just yet as I'm just getting warmed up. There is so much ground to cover here in London that I almost feel overwhelmed.  But, if you're looking for a mega hit of holiday, the first place I would send you would be Covent Garden. This almost seems like a place purpose built for festive fun. From Tiffany's Ice Skating Ring Popup to the tallest tree in London, it's all here and ready for its closeup. For me, it's the Christmas tree corner that's worth the visit. A dozen handsomely decorated trees sit just outside the marketplace, decorated by different vendors that sit inside. My woodman's-like ensemble, as one friend put it, turned out to be the perfect match for the scenario and for today's shop the look. Go figure. Sometimes these things work out!
