Valentine's Competition, Holiday Cottage Giveaway

Valentines Cottage Giveaway

Yay! We've confirmed our lucky winner! Louise from Oxfordshire is very happy to be spending next week in our lovely Cornish cottage. 

Have a read through all the comments we had below - there were lots of deserving entries, and it was nice to see so much love for each other. We even had a couple of poems...

A free holiday you say? Yes please...

Imagine Valentine's cosied up in the Cornish countryside. Nansbara (2447) is a gorgeous little property set in a rural idyll just a mile from the sea. Hide yourself away for a truly romantic and utterly peaceful break for two people in south west Cornwall. You’ll even receive a lovely welcome of champagne, cake and artisan bread from the Owners. So, pencil 12th to 15th February in the work diary...

All you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this page. It doesn't have to be clever - the winner will be picked at random, but for inspiration perhaps you can tell us:

'Why would you like to win this Classic cottage holiday?'
