Fancy staying in the castle where Henry VIII and Ann Boleyn honeymooned?

Anyway, I’ll be damned, and off with her head …. er whoops, what I mean is, flippin heck, Luxury Family Hotels have only gone and offered Muddy readers the chance to win a luxe two night stay here worth £1000, including breakfast and a three course dinner for two adults!

Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Muddy Stoke Park competition was popular! Over 2000 entries and a lot of finger crossing, but Christina St Croix (great name btw) obviously worked her toes too, because she has snaffled the luxe spa break for two for the night. You lucky, lucky (*sob*) lucky lady.

So it’s congratulations to Christina – get in touch with Sorry to the rest of you but fear not, mes amis – it wouldn’t be Muddy without another brilliant competition skidding around the corner any minute in a sports car.
