Win a four-night stay for up to six people in this idyllic Cornish farmhouse

Whimplestone is a luxury self-catering retreat, set in 50 private acres in the Tamar Valley on the Cornwall-Devon border. A pared-back yet beautifully lavish home, the farmhouse is positioned on the banks of the River Tamar within meadows of wildflowers.

With much to do there is easy access to Cornwall’s extensive countryside, award-winning beaches, stately homes and gardens. In summer guests can enjoy the natural swimming pool, whilst in winter it will be board games and roaring open fires.

Unique Home Stays, in association with MANOR, is offering one lucky reader and up to five guests the chance to win a four-night short break (Monday -Friday), or three-night long weekend stay, in this stunning private homestay.
