Win a 5-star Weekend Escape at super luxe Lime Wood hotel, worth £1800!

Reader Treats

Set deep in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire, the five star Lime Wood hotel is a picture-perfect country hideaway – an elegant Georgian manor house in immaculate gardens, with Michelin chef Angela Hartnett and Lime Wood’s Luke Holder in the kitchen and one of the most luxurious spas in the UK. Fancy a cheeky weekender? OK then!

To celebrate the launch of Muddy’s massive new Weekend Escapes microsite we’re giving away a two night stay for you and your plus one. Worth a mind-boggling £1800, your escape includes a four-course dinner with wine, breakfast on both mornings, two 60 minute spa treatments plus full access to the spa and gym for the duration of your stay. Will that do you?

The accommodation is super-luxe as you’d expect, with views out over the gardens/forest, kitted out with a king sized bed, in-room pantry, spacious bathroom, fluffy robe and slippers.

The food at Lime Wood is sublime, and you’ll be treated to a bespoke four course dinner created by chef Luke Holder (with wine chosen by the hotel’s sommelier) in the relaxed, stylish Italian restaurant Hartnett, Holder & Co.


I like to work systematically through as many luxe spas as I can muster but I gotta tell you, Lime Wood’s The Herb House Spa is particularly stunning. Designed over three levels, there’s a huge sauna, 16m indoor lap pool overlooking the garden, a Mud House, rooftop gym, work out studio, hydrotherapy suite, outdoor pools (below) and a helipad –  just in case you were thinking of arriving via chopper (er, always).


If you want to win the ultimate Weekend Escape enter below in seconds – and if you need a plus one you know where I am!

And while you’re waiting to see if you’ve bagged this stunning giveaway, go head over to our brand new Weekend Escapes site and see what all the fuss is about – truly, what Muddy doesn’t know about the best places to staycay in the UK just isn’t worth knowing!
