Win a luxury, two-night stay at Lumley Castle

In celebration of late spring, Gardens Illustrated is offering readers the chance to win a luxury two-night stay at historic Lumley Castle

Opens May 3, 2022 1:56 pm
Closes May 23, 2022 11:59 pm

The four-star hotel Lumley Castle is ideally located in beautiful parklands overlooking the River Wear in County Durham and offers the opportunity to discover the area’s history and garden highlights.


Also included are tickets to Ushaw Historic House, Chapels and Gardens, near Durham with its 30 acres of beautiful parkland, gardens and woodland and its historic house and chapels, founded more than 200 years ago by Roman Catholic refugees from northern France. Lumley Castle is a magnificent monument to a bygone age of chivalry and honour, effortlessly combining old and new to create a truly unique and memorable travel experience.

The castle, which became a hotel in 1976, dates back to the 14th century, when it was converted from a manor house by Sir Ralph Lumley and it is still owned by
Sir Ralph’s descendants, with the 13th Earl of Scarborough involved in its day-to-day running. All the beautifully appointed rooms are uniquely decorated, perfect for a relaxed getaway in a beautiful historic setting and provide all the refinements you’ve come to expect in a modern hotel room.

Competition prize includes

• A two-night stay for two people at Lumley Castle in a luxury room, including full English breakfast each morning.

• A £30-allowance per person for one dinner in the award-winning Knights Restaurant.

• Two tickets to Ushaw Historic House, Chapels and Gardens.
