WIN a 1-Night Stay at Victorian House in the Lake District!

It's competition time!!

We're excited to announce our latest competition, in partnership with Victorian House, a stylish B&B in gorgeous Grasmere, one of the Lake District's most charming villages. The property's been a guest house since it opened in 1872 and retains its original character, but it's also been updated with real flair, designer furnishings, and a highly personal touch.

The lucky winner will receive an overnight stay for two in the Shepherd's Hut or a Stargazer room, including artisan fudge and bubbles on arrival, early check-in and late check-out, and a full breakfast for both guests. The Shepherd's Hut is a charming riverside retreat with a rolltop bath, underfloor heating, and private outdoor seating with a fire pit. Meanwhile, the romantic Stargazer rooms are at the top of the house overlooking the fells, offering all the style and home comforts you'd expect from a boutique experience – they come complete with a telescope and star map, too.

Grasmere itself is a beauty, with its historic churchyard, old-time gingerbread shop, and just a short stroll to the famous Wordsworth houses of Dove Cottage and Allan Bank. There are walks right from the B&B's doorstep to some of the Lake District's most alluring beauty spots, or jump on an open-top bus down to Ambleside and Windermere for boat cruises and more. You can also wild swim in the nearby River Rothay and Grasmere, or hike to Alcock or Easdale Tarn and take a dip there. At the end of a day exploring, it's back to Victorian House and its genteel comforts and home-from-home feel.

Best of luck!
