Win a £1200 luxury weekend!

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Competitions features here.

Hope-HouseYou may remember my post from a few months back when I stayed at Hope House, a five star 18th century boutique ancestral home bang in the middle of lovely Woodstock. Hope House is featured in Mr & Mrs Smith, has won Trip Advisor’s ‘Traveller’s Choice’ Award 2013 and as well as Best Boutique Hotel at the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2013, so it’s fair to say it’s pretty outstanding!

IMG_2939I had an absolutely gorgeous experience there. It offers a discreet luxury that attracts A-list celebs in a steady stream (Diana Ross, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman etc) but without the pretension you often get in these places. So it was a mere hop, skip and sink into the large Blenheim Suite bubble bath before the thought crossed my mind that a stay here would make a fantastic November competition on Muddy.

In which case…

How do you fancy staying in 5 star luxury at Hope House for TWO nights, in whichever suite you prefer? Two of the three suites have two bedrooms so you can bring friends or even your kids (minimum age 6).

You’ll be given a complementary bottle of champers on your arrival, and your own chauffeur to take you to Bicester Village and back or if you’re more into sightseeing, to surrounding villages for half a day.

The prize is redeemable for 6 months so you have until the end of April to visit.


‘Tis easy peasy and takes seconds.

1. Sign up to the Hope House newsletter here (scroll down the bottom of the page to find it). Please note: you need to do this step or you won’t be entered into the competition. 

That’s it, you’re in the hunt for the prize! If you like, you can enter up to a further 3 times by:

2. Following Muddy Stilettos on twitter here

3. Liking Muddy Stilettos on Facebook here

By signing up to Hope House you’ll also automatically receive the Muddy Stilettos posts. You can unsubscribe at any time – though of course you have better taste than that!

  The winner will be drawn on 1 December – an early  Christmas gifty from me to you!
