Enter our competition to win an indulgent wine-tasting break for two in East Sussex

BRITAIN has teamed up with country house hotel group, Hand Picked Hotels, to offer one lucky reader and their guest the chance to win an indulgent and leisurely overnight break for two at the historic Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex. The prize includes one night’s accommodation for two in a classic room with dinner and a hearty breakfast the following morning.

Located in Ashdown Forest, Buxted Park sits in an impressive 312 acres. Inside the Grade II-listed Palladian mansion, the hotel features a handsome lounge with doors out onto sweeping lawns, and has a host of period details including huge replaces, elegant cornicing and crystal chandeliers. Over the years, this grand residence has welcomed some illustrious guests, including William Wordsworth, Winston Churchill and Marlon Brando.

During their stay, our winner and their guest will also enjoy a wine-tasting tour of the award-winning Bluebell Vineyard Estate nearby. The tour offers a true ‘grape to glass’ experience, with an insight into grape growing and winemaking in England. The tour is relaxed and fun and will take you through the art and science behind winemaking before a tutored tasting of the vineyard’s current releases.

Set amidst the bluebell-strewn woods from which the vineyard derives its name, Bluebell Vineyard Estates is a family-run vineyard and winery with a passion for producing world-class sparkling wines. The site is home to over 100,000 vines growing premium quality Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Seyval Blanc vines.

Established on the site of a former pig farm, the transition from swine to vine began as a hobby and the belief that truly exceptional sparkling wines can be produced in England. After all, the UK produces over 6 million bottles of wine a year.
