[A] group of 34 heritage attractions in the Lake District and Cumbria, brimming over with quirky things to see and do, is egging us on to delve into the past this Easter and use our eyes to win a prize worth over £500.
Cumbria’s Living Heritage – a cluster of castles, historic houses, gardens, churches and museums – has produced a guide to all of its super attractions, with a cover carrying a montage of 15 different images. Each image is a visual clue to one of the member attractions within the group. Would-be prizewinners simply need to decide which 15 attractions are referenced.
Browsing the guide should solve much of the mystery, but a little wit and guile may be required to guess all attractions correctly. Succeed in doing that and there is a prize of a two-night heritage-themed break in the Lake District to be won, staying at Askham Hall – a 15-bedroomed, contemporary boutique hotel, complete with outdoor heated pool and spa, housed in a 13th century grade 1-listed Pele Tower.
Additionally, the winner will enjoy lunch at the acclaimed Forest Side Hotel and Restaurant in Grasmere, where award-winning chef, Kevin Tickle, will tempt the taste buds with his ‘Bait Menu’.
Last but not least, the winner will scoop a 12-month pass providing free entry to all Cumbria Living Heritage attractions. If they then download a ‘Heritage Past-Port’, they can explore a host of quirky elements and things to see, from a Bee Penthouse to a Sleeping Giant, and from a Viking helmet chandelier to a Faerie Glen!
Prize seekers can pick up the Cumbria’s Living Heritage guide in leaflet racks in and around Cumbria, or download it at www.cumbriaslivingheritage.co.uk, and then enter online, before the June 30 closing date.
As the guide also provides access to discounts, or free treats, at a number of the featured attractions, it is well worth popping into the pocket or handbag. Using it in conjunction with the ‘Heritage Past-Port’ will certainly make for great Easter Days out.
Place your focus on heritage this Easter and start solving the clues! A dream Cumbrian getaway could be yours!
