Earlier this year, we ran a competition on Facebook in conjunction with a local lettings agency, where the prize was a free one night stay with us. To win the prize, Facebook users had to ‘like’ both of our business pages and then add a comment indicating what they most liked about Dorset. Jenny from the agency administered it all and the eventual winner from the prize draw was Jane from West Sussex. Jane had only been using Facebook for a few weeks when she won her prize (which just goes to show that it’s always worth entering!) and she was absolutely delighted to win her free stay. She and her husband Terry decided to add on a few extra nights and, as I write this, they are half way through their visit, having now spent time in Shaftesbury, at our glorious local stately home Stourhead (pictured) and with plans to visit Sherborne Castle and its Capability Brown designed gardens.
Here are Jenny, Jane and Terry with me, drinking tea out of sunflower mugs!
