Take one car-loving blogger (me) plus her super-funny Papa G and the breathtaking Bowcliffe Hall in the village I live in (how cool though?), pose in cool cars, shoot, test drive then eat exquisite food- and what do you get? THE BEST DAY EVER that’s what!
With Papa G by my side (he likes to call himself my chauffeur the poor guy- he does do quite a lot of dropping me off at the train station for trips to London), I literally could not wait to get behind the wheel and take the striking red Jeep Grand Cherokee out for a spin.
First up though was an intro in the coolest bunker style breakfast room at Bowcliffe to hear more about this super-cool brand before a quick photo shoot in the grounds and a whole lot of posing on one of the first ever jeeps (!) along the Cherokee-then it was time to zoom off into the countryside following the set route from Bowcliffe Hall to the breathtakingly beautiful Ripley Castle.
The drive was silky smooth with the Cherokee picking up great speed with ease on the open roads-all buttery leather inners and in built sat-nav with plenty of room in the back for babies and bags: I adored it.
I also officially now LOVE an automatic-it was the first time I had a go at ‘lazy driving’ as I like to call it and let me tell you, I want to LAZY drive all day long from now amigos. Automatic is the way forward.
…Pops wasn’t just a passenger either.
After a quick tea and biscuit dunk in the decadent parlour at Ripley Castle, Dad got behind the wheel of the Renegade (another smooth operator-boxier in design and this one was silver) racing (within speed limits of course) back to base, in time for an exquisite lunch with fellow bloggers, journos and vloggers in the opulent car-themed dining room overlooking lawns.
I naturally vlogged the day of course and in 5 minutes hope to have captured a truly fast and fun experience with Jeep below:
Now please let’s just take a minute to appreciate the beauty of the range of Jeeps in all their finest.
My plan is to bid goodbye to our 7 seater (toodles) and get me that red bad boy stat.
How lush though? I can’t even. #Cargoals in overdrive. Get it?!
Right, so I’ve put it out there to the universe, ‘Please universe may I have a jeep?’ and you know where I am Jeep, don’t you. Course you do. Good.
Suits me huh?!
So do you have a jeep?! Say no because I might cry if you do.
Seriously, though wonder this car is the fastest growing car brand in the UK with a staggering 10,800 vehicles sold just last year alone.
Now go test drive yours today!
