WIN a River Cottage dining experience worth £950

This competition is now closed. Our lucky winner is Alison Speeching - congratulations!

River Cottage share our passion for the West Country, so we're pleased to offer this exclusive prize - a luxury private dining experience (at River Cottage HQ!) for up to ten people - that's the best part of a grand's worth of prize for one lucky signer-upper.


A few words from the lovely people over at River Cottage:

Join us at River Cottage HQ in our beautifully restored farmhouse, which is the perfect location to celebrate a special evening with family and friends. The evening begins with a short tractor ride down to the farm itself where our team will be waiting to greet you with a complimentary seasonal aperitif or glass of local fizz and homemade canapes. You can relax in the cosy dining-room or award-winning kitchen garden as your personal chef prepares a sumptuous seasonal meal. Your chef will introduce the four courses to explain how the dishes have been prepared. We always showcase the best seasonal ingredients from our farm and local organic growers. Local fish may well feature on the menu, or perhaps a special cut from one of our organically reared Saddleback pigs.

Itʼs not what you would call a ʻhugeʼ festival, but itʼs all the more special because of that. If anything it feels like a huge family garden party, if only I had that garden!
