Competition

Win a free hotel night


THE LORD CREWE ARMS, Blanchland, Northumberland, which won a César award this year as Inn of the Year, is this month’s prize-giving hotel. In an ‘unbeatable' setting in the North Pennine Moors, this 900 year-old inn has been cleverly modernised by the owners of Calcot Manor. Employing local staff, they have rooted it firmly in the area; the accent and the friendly mood are very much of the north-qeast.

All you need do to win this handsome prize of one night's dinner, bed and breakfast for two at THE LORD CREWE ARMS is to SEND A REVIEW of any 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.

Richard Barrett from Salisbury is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at THE PIG ON THE BEACH, Studland, Dorset. An 18th-century Gothic building with turrets, mullioned windows and multiple roof levels, it fits admirably in Robin Hutson’s litter of Pig hotels. The quirky, shabby-chic style contributes to an informal-laid-back style. Cheerful staff and good food.
