Competition

Win a free hotel night

NEWFORGE HOUSE, Magheralin, Co. Armagh, which won a César award this year as Irish Guest House of the year, is well placed for touring Northern Ireland or for visitors venturing further south. It is run by John and Louise Mathers (his family has owned the house for six generations) in hands-on fashion. Ten years ago they sympathetically renovated the Georgian house (built in 1785) to run it as an upmarket guest house. Original features have been preserved; there are heirloom antiques throughout – pictures, tapestries, clocks and ornaments. The bedroom namesq recall the six Mathers wives to have lived here.

All you need do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at NEWFORGE HOUSE is to SEND A REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been omitted, as well as those that have a current entry.

Anthony Bradbury from Essex is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at THE GREEN PARK, Pitlochry, Scotland, which won a César award this year as Scottish hotel of the year.

Guests can choose from a library of 3,000 books, take advantage of a jigsaw puzzle area, or watch red squirrels from the sun lounge.
