Win A Cotswolds Escape to the Royal Gardens at Highgrove

If you’re yearning for some relaxation time with someone special, our Cotswolds getaway could be just the answer.

Our winner will enjoy two nights for two people in a double room at the 4-star boutique Kings Head Hotel in Cirencester. A 14th-century coaching inn, the hotel is now listed as a place of historical interest in the heart of the Cotswolds.

To help you truly switch off, the hotel includes a subterranean luxury spa featuring a hot tub, sauna and steam room.

Each morning you’ll be treated to breakfast in the on-site restaurant, which makes the most of locally sourced, premium ingredients.

Included is a guided tour of The Royal Gardens at Highgrove – the private gardens of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. You’ll learn all about the lawns, which have been transformed into a series of interlinked organic gardens, with strict sustainability principles. After working up an appetite, you’ll enjoy a delicious champagne afternoon tea of sandwiches and sweet treats in The Orchard Restaurant, which may include produce sourced from the very gardens you’ve been exploring earlier that day. You’ll also get to try champagne, created exclusively for Highgrove by the French Champagne house Laurent-Perrier.
