Competition

Viewmount House, Longford, Ireland, which won a César award this year as Irish Hotel of the Year, is this month’s prize-giver. In ‘cleverly designed, well-maintained gardens’ on the outskirts of town, this elegant Georgian mansion has ‘uninterrupted views’ of the surrounding land, and a ‘cheerful ambience’ within. There are log fires in the sitting rooms, and paintings and ornaments throughout. Bedrooms, individually furnished with period pieces, have contemporary flair.

 

All you need to do to win this handsome prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at Viewmount 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.

Sara Price from London is the winner of last month’s prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at The Cottage in the Wood, Braithwaite, Cumbria. Stunning views towards Skiddaw, and glimpses of rare wildlife, are served at Kath and Liam Berney’s restaurant-with-rooms on the Whinlatter Pass. The Cottage in question is a 17th-century coaching inn; the Wood is England’s only true mountain forest. ‘Watching red squirrels as we dined was a bonus.’ Designed to reflect the wooded Lakeland location, there is usually a pine-infused flavour on the menu, while the Herdwick hogget remains a perennial favourite.
