Happy Spring! Happy second day of the month! And happy days to one very lucky Muddy reader who is about to float off with a luxury weekend at Another Place The Lakes in Ulswater, The Lake District.
Thousands of you entered this one – I guess everyone needs a holiday! – but the winner is (*drum roll*)…
Congratulations to you lady. I’m not gritting my teeth honestly, just smiling very very hard.
We do try to push the boat out on prizes for you to win, but we’ve had we had one so delicious it was literally bobbing over the water. But check out this lakeside view!
Another Place The Lake in Ullswater in the Lake District is the most ridiculously gorgeous, luxurious, stylish hotel we’ve seen in a very long time and we’ve nabbed a two night stay, worth nearly £800, for one lucky Muddy reader (and your plus one obvs).
There can only be one winner to the fabulouso dinner for two at Heston’s The Crown pub and a roll down to Bray Cottages’ 5 star collapse pad and the lucky dabber is none other than…
… Charlotte Robinson! Congrats Charlotte. Get in touch and we’ll get you sorted for the VIP treatment. Those of you who missed out, don’t let it get you down – we’ll soon be running a luxe brand spanking new Lake District hotel we’ve lined up for you?!
I think it’s only right and proper to begin 2017 with a Michelin nosh up and a night away, don’t you?
Hero over in Buck/Oxon reviewed The Crown in Bray last summer and absolutely loved it. A Heston eaterie (part of his Fat Duck group), The Crown is a gorgeously atmospheric 16th century building with all the requisite nooks, crannies, fireplaces and higgledy-piggledy spaces, with food that’s awesome, as you’d expect.
Wow, that was a hard-fought competition! Loads of you wanted to win the Thornbury Castle competition, and no wonder – a luxe 2-night stay worth £1000 from those lovely folk at Luxury Family Hotels, in the castle where Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn honeymooned? A chance to ditch the kids, ramp up the romance and make your escape – it’s almost enough to make you lose your head in all the excitement! Ok, ok, I’ll get on with it.
Fancy staying in the castle where Henry VIII and Ann Bolyn honeymooned? Thornbury Castle is a stonking 500 year old Tudor beauty on the edge of the Cotswolds, reviewed on Muddy a few months back (here, remind yourself!).
Anyway, I’ll be damned, and off her with her head …. er whoops, what I mean is, flippin heck, Luxury Family Hotels have only gone and offered Muddy readers the chance to win a luxe two night stay here worth £1000, including breakfast and a three course dinner for two adults!
Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Muddy Stoke Park competition was popular! Loads of entries and a lot of finger crossing, but Christina St Croix has snaffled the luxe spa break for two for the night. You lucky, lucky (*sob*) lucky lady.
So it’s congratulations to Christina and sorry to the rest of you but fear not, mes amis – it wouldn’t be Muddy without another brilliant competition skidding around the corner any minute in a sports car.
You remember the Devine Betty’s! The fantabulous ladies who came to to Muddy Towers and cooked up a storm. Well they’ve kindly offered themselves up as a prize to Muddy readers (their services, obvs). So if you fancy something like this in your own home, just sign up for my free newsletter by May 9th and you’ll be in with the chance to win a three course meal (of your choice from a selected list) cooked at your home, a friend’s place or wherever you fancy (in Northamptonshire)!
