A fundraiser for a heritage houses charity is offering up to £5,000 of free weekend breaks in its homes across the UK.

The charity, the Landmark Trust takes over run-down buildings and turns them into holiday homes, so that anyone can spend a weekend in them. Fancy long weekends away in follies and gatehouses, family adventures in castles and forts or sharing time with friends at a country escape?

The raffle costs £1 per entry, and there are seven prizes on offer:

  • First Prize: £5,000 to spend on Landmark holidays.
  • Second Prize: 2 prizes of £1,000 to spend on Landmark holidays.
  • Third Prize: 4 prizes of £500 to spend on Landmark holidays.

Every ticket you buy will help rescue more buildings at risk whilst supporting the survival of traditional craft skills.

To enter the Landmark Trust’s raffle, go here.

Closing date: 18 May 2020, and for full T&C’s check their website.

They also have a range of open days through the year where you can visit the buildings for free.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Absolutely! A fair few of them might be priced towards a think~twice level but when you go ahead you are well rewarded.
    How else can you satisfy a childhood dream of poncing about as a prince in his own castle? (Kingswear castle on the river Dart, Devon) Memorable!
