For just £2 you could
Win a Country Home
and live the life of your dreams!

3rd Sept - WE HAVE A WINNER!!!! 🏆🏆🏆

We’re currently down at Evalina House in London with the Ronald McDonald House Charity (UK) and Arlingsworth Solicitors who presided over the draw. 

As we had to do the whole thing outside (no one is allowed in the RMHC building due to COVID) we couldn’t access their internal WIFI so it wasn’t possible to live stream unfortunately.

BUT we video’d the whole thing including the draw itself. So when that’s uploaded later you can see Jo Howe (National Partnership Manager of RMHC) pushing the button under the watchful eye of local lawyers, and the very surprised winner being called.... once we managed to get through to her!

In the video we cover the ticket receipts and costs in detail which after card processing fees, charity donations etc comes to a massive £166,653 prize!!!!!!

Sadly with less than a quarter of tickets sold it can’t be lovely Coles Hall that we’re giving away today. But it can be a serious amount of money that can change someone’s life for the better.

AND we managed to donate £10,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities (UK) so give yourselves a massive pat on the back 🙏🙏🙏

And the winner is.....

🎉🎉🎉🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🎉🎉🎉

*** LYN GARNER FROM STOKE ON TRENT !! **** 

🎉🎉🎉. 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 🎉🎉🎉

It took AGES to get Lyn on the phone and when we finally did she literally didn’t believe it! 

More to follow shortly when we get back on a decent connection, but for the moment here are a few photos of the event.

Finally a big THANK YOU for supporting the Winacountryhome competition. Coles Hall was not as popular as we all hoped, but allowed us all to live the dream of living the country life for a while. Our best wishes to Josephine the owner as she moves down to her other house in Dorset.

And the charity has a much needed donation, in times when they have a 50% drop in donations.

One lucky winner - 🏆 LYN GARNER 🏆 - has won herself a life changing £166,653... not bad for £2!!

More to follow shortly, and the winner of the Share Competition!

Update: 29th Aug - Draw Date Moved to Thursday for Charity

COVID-19 has meant that all Charity donations across the UK have been reduced by as much as 75%, as no one can hold fundraising events due to social distancing. Which for our official Charity partner Ronald McDonald House Charities (UK) means they can support less families in their time of need.

But one of the best outcomes of this competition is that it will help RMHC(UK) provide 400 night's accomodation for the parents and families of critically ill children who need to receive specialist treatment miles away from home. For instance when they live in the Midlands and have to get life saving treatment in London.

Due to COVID the Charity's fundraising team has been on furlough, but returns this week.

So after much discussion yesterday with our Charity partner it has been decided to put the draw date back just a few days to 12 noon on Thursday September 3rd.

This means we are able to finish the competition at one of their houses in London, and present RMHC(UK) with the cheque for £10,000. And at the same time help raise awareness of how much the Charity needs your help.

Doing this on Thursday also means that one of their most senior UK team is able to make herself available to receive the donation at the house, who will also talk about the wonderful work that the Charity does.

We'll announce the amount of ticket sales on the day and draw for the winner of the cash prize, and do our best to contact them and let them know the good news! We'll also announce the winner of the Share competition.

We have all your ticket numbers and contact details this end, so don't worry if you can't find the original email. We'll be sure to get hold of you if you win!!

Last time we had a draw hackers tried to hack us and our Facebook page was taken offline. So fingers crossed we don't have anything like that again!

Thank you for your love and support as always. I know the vast majority of you will back this decision, and you helped made this donation happen.

So pleased be proud and give yourselves a pat on the back 👏👏👏👏

And roll on Thursday!

Update: 26th Aug - The Competition is now closed! 
The Results Are In, And...

Sadly we didn't sell enough tickets for Coles Hall to draw for the house, depsite several extensions. 

While everyone here is in love with the place, and would love to live there or own it as a second property, it seems that there were just not enough like-minded people that felt it was worth £2 to have a go. 

I also get the feeling that many people felt Coles Hall was too much of a property for them to look after, being such a big old place with 5 acres of land. 

We all gave it our best, it just wasn't to be. 


CASH PRIZE

But there is a silver lining! In a few days time we will be having a draw for 80% of the net proceeds (as per our rules) which should be a significant amount of money. 

We'll announce that figure at the draw once all the processing fees etc have been settled and checked.  

The draw is scheduled for noon on Saturday and no longer needs to be held at the house. So watch this space and we will keep you informed of details. 

DRAW & TICKET NUMBERS 

Don't worry if you can't find your email with your ticket numbers as we have everything here, just as we have on previous draws. And the work of compiling them into a master list for the draw is currently underway. 

Please see our FAQ for answers to other questions. 


SHARE COMPETITION 

Likewise if you have been sharing the competition via your Share Link, we allocate any free entries our end which are currently being compiled into the draw. And we will be announcing the winner of the £5000 Share Competition at the draw. 

In terms of contacting the Winner, we will try to contact you by phone, email and address for up to 21 days until we get hold of you. Watch the video on our website of our last winner Jemma getting her call, she literally could not believe it!! 

Finally can I just thank everyone for the love and support they have shown this competition. And for your patience while we have extended the competition to give it the best possible chance of succeeding. 

Although it cost us money to extend each time, personally I think it was worth it in order to give someone a chance to win something fabulous which would normally be out of their price range, for just £2. But on this occaision it was just not meant to be. 

And a thank you also to our Charity Partner Ronald McDonald House. I have personally guaranteed them £10,000 no matter what the outcome, so we'll be getting that sorted as well. 

Who will win the cash prize?

We make dreams come true... for £2.

When everyone else is worrying about jobs, house prices, and what the rest of the year could bring, we bring you a ray of sunshine, a ray of hope. 

Just imagine for a second...

* Wouldn't it be great to own an idyllic country retreat an hour outside London? One that's worth a Million Pounds and has 5 acres of land, away from all the crowds?

* To have a £1,000,000 property under your belt that you could live in, rent out, or sell and just cash in?

Wouldn't that change absolutely everything for you and your loved ones?



Welcome to Coles Hall!

As you look out over one of England's finest landscapes, you know that you are one of the lucky ones. The air is clean and fresh. The stillness and tranquility remind you that you are in the very heart of the English countryside. Free, safe, and living the good life.

Coles Hall - actually a Grade II listed Tudor Hall - was originally an old IronMaster's house and is believed to have been built around 1537 during the reign of Henry VIII.  This magnificent home is built on the site of a Medieval Homestead situated on the High Weald (AONB).

Walking up the stone steps to the period house you can't believe it's actually yours! Everyone that comes into your new home falls in love with this idyllic country retreat. It feels warm and magical, steeped in history. Its 400 year heritage and English character exude effortlessly from the exposed beams.

You look out of your bedroom window and smile as you see the lambs playing in the fields. The wild ducks return to your pond year on year, to let you know this is their home too. 

But as you relax in your South-West facing garden enjoying the all day sunshine and taking in the stunning views of the South Downs, it's easy to forget that London is an hour away.

Not only do you own a £1,000,000 property an hour from The City, but it's one of the nicest and best located properties in the area... with such a history too! Not every house has a list of occupants from the middle ages (read here).

A 16th Century Tudor Hall set in 5 Acres..

For some Coles Hall is the ideal hideaway with its Inglenook fireplaces, Victorian sinks, and timeless atmosphere.  See where the Inglenooks have curved walls? That's where the cook used to sharpen their knives from a seat inside the fireplace, where everyone used to congregate in the evenings for warmth, light, food and companionship.

For others it's the perfect house for entertaining, with a formal dining room for intimate dinner gatherings, and sweeping lawns for *fabulous* outside Summer parties.

And so well situated too! The village of Heathfield is just 2 miles away with its Butcher and its Baker (alas not a Candlestick Maker anymore). And Supermarkets as well as a host of antique shops.

Meanwhile the Saxon village of Mayfield is a few minutes away also, and a wonderful 16th Century Inn - The Middle House - with its fine restaurants and four poster beds should you require more than your own 5 double bedrooms for guests.

Not forgetting that Central London is just over an hour by train, from a station a few miles from your door. Could it get any better?


And to think that you actually have the chance to OWN a home like this.. A LIFE like this.. for just £2. Unbelievable. 

Well don't blink, this is literally a 100% Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to live the Country Dream.

Jemma Nicklin won our last competition, could this be your turn?

<< TICKETS >>

The entry fee for the Prize Draw is £2 per ticket and requires you to answer a question about the area. 

You can also earn additional free entries by sharing the competition online. Once you've bought tickets we give you your own customised link to promote. So go for it and increase your chances of winning!

There's even an extra £5000 reward for the person whose sharing activity results in the most ticket sales! 

Tickets are still available, but do not miss out.



POSTAL ENTRIES

We allow free written entry by 1st class post, and all entries either paid or free will be treated equally.


THE DRAW

The closing date for entries is  August 25th 2020 and the winner will be drawn electronically at noon on August 29th 2020 with press and solicitors present with winner notified by email and telephone.

The promoters hope to sell a minimum of 590,000 tickets in order to include transfer costs such as stamp duty and legal fees, and to complete any last minute jobs to ensure the house is as perfect as possible for the next owner. 

But if the minimum quota is not reached, the winner will be offered a massive 80% of the net ticket receipts after processing and admin fees - a seriously life changing amount of money. We hope you agree that's fair.

So, What Do I Get?

Coles Hall is a Grade II Listed Tudor Hall located in Five Ashes, Mayfield, East Sussex, set in 5 acres of land. It is THE perfect environment for raising a family in a friendly community away from the crowds and city life. It is located in one of England's finest landscapes, some 450ft above sea level. 

The nearest train station is Buxted, getting you to London Bridge in just over an hour (according to Trainline).


# VALUATION: The property was valued in Summer 2019 by a leading estate agent at just over a Million pounds. 

 As winner the property will be transfered to you free of stamp duty and legal fees - yours to live in, sell, rent out, start an AirB&B business... or just keep in the family for investment purposes. It could have DOUBLED in value in the last 10 years so is worth holding onto!


The detached freehold property was built c.1537 and is in good working order. It is suprisingly cheap to run, having free electricity provided from 4 kw of solar panels in the field, plus you also get the top Fits payment. 

Fully central heated (oil fired) with secondary double glazing throughout (EPC Exempt).

And there's a good supply of logs to fuel the 2 Inglenook fireplaces with wood from fallen trees on the land and seasoned for at least 3 yrs. 

To the rear are old barns previously used as farm barns to the house back in the day when it was a 150 acre farm.

Three fields away is a Farm Nursery School for little ones from 2yrs old.



Where is it?

The home is located in the centre of the beautiful area of Five Ashes in East Sussex, just over an hour south of London:
 
Coles Hall
Heathfield Road
Five Ashes
Mayfield  TN20 6JJ

You don't have to be local. Simply rent it out for thousands a month, or use it as a country retreat, or sell it!
