Reader Treats Just For You!

Win a £1000 weekend at Thornbury Castle!

Fancy staying in the castle where Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn honeymooned? Thornbury Castle is a stonking 500-year-old Tudor beauty on the edge of the Cotswolds, reviewed on Muddy a while back (check it out here).

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!

If you’re like me and knackered already  – like, where did that summer holiday feeling go? – here’s your chance to ditch the kids, ramp up the romance and make your escape.



HOW TO ENTER – it literally takes 5 seconds!

As always, ’tis easy peasy. Just sign up for the Muddy Stilettos newsletter here.

Please note: you must do this step even if you are already subscribed to the Muddy Stilettos newsletter. Don’t worry, you won’t get two lots of newsletters.

Once you have entered via email you can also enter up to another two times by

      1. Liking my Facebook page and sharing the comp on your FB page
      2. Following me on Twitter and RTing the comp on your twitter feed

Do all three and you have just tripled your chances!

The T&Cs (hey you, stay awake at the back): In signing up for Muddy newsletters, you’ll also be subscribing to the Luxury Family Hotels newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time from both newsletters after the competition ends on 11 Oct if you’ve, like, lost your marbles or something. The prize is valid until 31 March 2017 (excluding school holidays and bank holiday weekends) and is subject to availability at the time of booking. It is non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash.

The winner will be picked from the ceremonial crown on 12 October so keep an eye out on the blogaroo to see if you’re the one who wins a right royal romp.
