From Bath, we drove twenty minutes down the road to spend two glorious nights at The Pig near Bath. I can’t wait to give you the full report, but first, let’s talk about these wellies. A lot of hotels in the English Countryside provide guests will wellies, but this hotel also provided a hot pink umbrella. Like something out of a modernized Jane Austen novel, it rained just long enough for me to twirl in the garden for photos—I kid you not. The rest of the time, the weather was perfect, with just the right amount of crispness in the air.
While wellies can be a pain to pack, I found these Refined Short Hunter Rain Boots that didn’t take up too much room in my suitcase. I highly recommend these for travel, and save the knee high boots when you don’t need to be practical—like when you’re driving somewhere in L.A. and it sprinkles for five minutes ;)!
