This prize draw is now closed.

Pencreek Cottage

We’ve all been loving our staycations this year and this month we are offering a prize that will take our winner to the Tregothnan estate in the south of Cornwall. Situated on the River Fal, a deep sea creek, the gardens here are a botanical wonder with many extraordinarily rare plants, which flourish due to the local micro-climate.

Add to this the remarkable tea plantation on the surrounding estate, where Tregothnan is the first-ever English tea company to have created a range of black tea, green tea and herbal infusions home-grown on British soil. Cornish tea leaves are blended with the finest leaves from Assam and Darjeeling to create a range of distinctive flavours.

Shepherd's Hut Situated along the water’s edge are 7 Wild Escape cottages and a Shepherd’s Hut, absolutely perfect for a magical holiday, year round, beside the river, set in plum orchards. Whether you are a couple, group of friends or family, these traditional, characterful, dog-friendly properties are beautifully furnished with all the pretty and practical finishing touches that create a sense of luxury and harmony. Comfortable beds, really well-equipped kitchens and quality garden furniture mean you may never want to leave. This is a place to breathe out and relax. As for the views, they are breathtaking across the river to rural tranquillity. You might want to try out kayaks, paddle boards or rowing boats whilst you’re here: the river calls out to be explored.

Further afield is Cornwall’s county capital city, Truro which is a pleasing mix of old and new, with independent craft and artisan food shops, alongside High Street stores. And the southern Cornish coast is just waiting to be discovered, there are a plethora of coves and inlets, all warmed by the Gulf Stream so exotic plants and gardens feature throughout the region. 

Our winner will receive a voucher worth £1,000 for a Wild Escapes holiday or short break at Tregothnan, to be used by December 2022. The only thing to decide is who you’ll take with you!
