Win a stay with dinner, breakfast and Levin Wine at luxury country house Hambleton Hall worth £800

Reader Treats

This Reader Treat really has the wow factor: one lucky Muddy reader will win an overnight stay with dinner and breakfast for two (plus lashings of Levin Wine to quaff) at Rutland’s glorious Hambleton Hall.

On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a bottle of fine organic 2012 Levin Sauvignon Blanc, World Sauvignon Gold to settle you in to one of the Hall’s luxury superior rooms (overlooking Rutland Water, naturally) before you set out to explore the hall and grounds.

The country estate is straight out of a period drama with elegantly designed interiors (a mix of curated antique gems and opulent furnishings), roaring log fires and 17 acres of grounds which include stunning manicured gardens and a warm south-facing terrace –  head to the sitooterie to soak up the evening rays with a book or some of that Levin wine! There are also pretty autumnal walks aplenty, including the The Fisherman’s Track around the Hambleton Peninsula.

For dinner, head to the restaurant (it holds four AA Rosettes and the longest retained Michelin star in the UK) for a gourmet four course dinner – local, seasonal produce rules here and, as you’d expect, every dish is beautifully presented and created from scratch.

With your meal you’ll also get an accompanying flight of specially curated Museum Released Levin Wines including the World Sauvignon Gold –  Mister L , worthy partner 2011 Madame L Gamay, and incredibly rare Levin Noble Botrytis. A full Hambleton Hall breakfast, with morning papers, is also included in the prize and you’ll get a personalised menu to take home as a memento of your stay.

Enter this amazing £800 giveaway below (and if you need a +1, you know where to find me!).
