WIN a luxury beachside break for 6 at Shangri-La House, Norfolk!

1 January 2019

January can be a bit of a challenging month, as the cold intensifies and all that remains of the festive cheer is a distant jingling of bells and the odd wayward shiny bow under the sofa. 

We also start yearning for outdoor escapades and adventures, picturing ourselves on wide, sandy beaches in the sunshine.

So we thought we should probably try and take the edge off these winter blues for you with an opportunity to put yourself on those sands for free with your very own beach house break!
If you were going to create your very own Shangri-La, you could choose no finer UK location than Waxham in Norfolk to do it. A stylish re-imagining of the traditional wood-built coastal chalet set within an acre of lush grounds, the exceptional three-bedroom Shangri-La House was designed by award-winning Mole Architects to maximise its stunning surroundings.


Imagine the luxury of a 5-star hotel, with one of the county’s best beaches as the backdrop – an ideal coastal retreat at any time of the year. Well imagine no longer, as we offer you a chance to win a 3/4 night stay here* for you and up to 5 other guests, and also up to two four-legged friends as this is one of our most popular dog-friendly properties!
For your chance to win this idyllic beachside break, just fill in your details below.
