How to Win Your Own Cottage in Wales





How do you fancy winning this beautiful Welsh Cottage.  

Situated between the Llyn Peninsula and Snowdonia National Park it is less than an hours drive from our cottage and is in a beautiful part of North Wales.

Within easy reach of Snowdon and also the fantastic visitor attraction of Portmeirion it would make an ideal first or second home.  I know for sure I would rather be here full time than just using it for holidays, it's been renovated to a high standard and has everything that a couple or a small family could wish for.   And the welcome you would receive from the locals if you chose to be a full time resident would be amazing.

I checked out all the small print and the FAQs, and did a bit of research and this is a genuine competition complying with all competition laws and is being overseen by solicitors.  If by any chance the required number of tickets are not sold for the cottage to be won, they need to sell 80,000 tickets to make this viable and include the donation to charity that they are making, there will instead be a large cash prize almost equal to the amount of tickets being sold.  So it's much better odds than purchasing a lottery ticket!!

The tickets are £5 each ... I bought 4, well I thought why not, it really is worth a go  😃


So if you fancy a flutter, with the chance of a Welsh Cottage of your own at the end of it -




Good luck 🤞

  1. I saw this yesterday and looked it up. It looks great, and I love the area, but it's at the other end of Wales from us, and we probably wouldn't use it much. Very tempted, though.

    1. You could always use it for one Summer and then put it on the market at a price a local person could afford, or rent it out long term to a local person, using the money as a pension pot. I think that's what I would do :-)

    1. It's not all that big really. If you click on my link to the website and then click on the button that says 'See the Cottage' and then scroll through all the cottage photos, the final two are the floor plans and shows it to have two rooms downstairs and two bedrooms and the bathroom upstairs. It is a gorgeous renovation isn't it :-)

    1. I delved into every aspect of the website and then came across someone that is actually related to the people who are holding this raffle, it seems perfectly above board, it complies with all the UK's gaming regulations and is being overseen by the solicitors who will handle the passing over of the cottage to the winner.

      If enough tickets aren't sold the money raised will be the prize money instead, minus a 20% administration fee to cover solicitors fees etc. So it's still worth a flutter in my opinion ... I wouldn't have parted with any of my money if it wasn't :-)
