  • My lovely hubby Mat would come with me. We both work in the NHS and have had a stressful year and only managed to take two weeks off work in the past 12 months. I also ruptured my Achilles in November, but luckily was able to continue working. I am starting to build up my walking now and I feel a wonderful trip like this would be just the perfect tonic for the body and soul, and really appreciated.

  • Wow! This is a fantastic prize- would have to choose between taking my husband or my sister who would love the activities and as a key worker it would be fantastic to treat her for a stress free and thoroughly indulging break. Guess I do not have to choose unless I am lucky enough to win! All of the activities sound fabulous- I love yoga; any keep fit and walking in the beautiful countryside and being a bit of a foodie any of the food related activities would be great. It would be nice to try a bit of everything and to make the most of this extraordinary place.

  • I would take my lovely husband we are both essential key workers and it is our 25th wedding anniversary this year. My husband loves cooking so the cookery class would be perfect for him and I would like to try the yoga class to help with my aching muscles. This prize would be lovely as we haven’t had a break away since 2019.
