Time Travel in Style: WIN a Vintage-Inspired Devon Stay at Dimmet PLUS a Retro Goodie Bag from 70s House Manchester!

3 November 2023

Fancy taking a trip to the 1970s? We’ve just teamed up with Dimmet and 70s House Manchester for our grooviest competition yet!

Bespoke-styled by film set designer Marina Morris, Dimmet (a Devon word referring to that glorious half-light at the end of the day) isn’t just fabulously faithful to the 1970s. Elevated over Braunton Burrows, you’ll enjoy soothing sea views as you fire up the old-school record player and prepare the cheese-and-pineapple sticks.

The brainchild of interior designer, TV presenter, and 70s expert Estelle Bilson, 70s House Manchester is a location house and luxury British interiors brand that celebrate the disco decade in all its vibrant glory. Released in March 2023, Estelle’s first book, 70s House: A Bold Homage to the Most Daring Decade in Design, has already become an international best-seller.

So, what exactly could you win?
First prize is a two-night stay for up to 4 guests at Dimmet in Devon (to be taken before 30th April 2024, excluding school holidays) PLUS a fabulous 70s House Manchester goodie bag containing two fab retro tea towels and mugs, and 70s House Manchester book.

There’s also a runners-up prize of another copy of Estelle’s book up for grabs… with every page dedicated to the most daring decade in design!

The best news of all? Entry couldn’t be simpler – just enter via the Gleam widget below!

Good luck!
