Win a £1000 luxury family weekend!

I don’t know about you but I’m knackered. It’s so tough at this time of year to keep going, with the weather turning, and work cranking up and Christmas around the corner. Somehow this year I’ve not managed to take many holidays. Bad Mistake. Although I like hanging out at home, I’ve realised recently how important physically getting away is – it somehow clears the mind and leaves you so much more relaxed.

If you feel the same, you’ll lovetty love the Muddy giveaway for November. I ran a Luxury Family Hotel competition a year or so ago to win a £1000 family weekend away at one of their stunning hotels and I’ve only gone and persuaded them to do it again. I know!!

If you’ve never stayed at a Luxury Family Hotels they are truly brilliant. Architecturally they’re beautiful with all the luxuries you’d expect, but the hotels are run to ensure that families feel completely at home –  free films put on for the kids, pools, spas and Ofsted-registered crèche facilities, so that you can relax and still have some grown-up time for yourselves.

Here are a few of the hotels – handily they’re mostly in the south of England – but have a look on the LFH website for a full list.

The Elms, Worcestershire

Woolley Grange, Dorset

A two night stay worth £1000, that includes breakfast and a three-course dinner on one evening at any of the Luxury Family Hotels for up to two adults and three children under the age of 16 (excluding Thornbury Castle). Sounds good, doesn’t it?! The prize also includes a half hour spa treatment – so throw the children to the kids club and hand your other half the Sunday papers while you get pampered.

HOW TO ENTER  – it takes  literally 5 seconds!

Just sign up for the Muddy Stilettos newsletter here. Yep, that’s all you have to do!

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

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 4 December 2015  if you’ve, like, lost your marblees or something. The prize is valid until 23 March 2016, 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.

Good luck mes braves, may the force be with you.
