We have been overwhelmed by the amount and quality of entries into our Autumn photo competition and a huge thank-you to everyone who entered.
It gives us great pleasure to announce that the lucky winner was Rachel Greengrass. with a picture of her black Labrador Retriever named Baxter against a backdrop of burnt orange, brown and yellow leaves. It was one of three photos with the most Facebook 'Likes' out of 34 entrants and was picked at random to become the overall winner. Rachel receives the prize of a two-night break at The Pheasant complete with dinner in the Bistro one evening and hearty Cumberland breakfasts each morning.
Keen to celebrate and share the Autumn season in all its glory, we launched the competition via our Facebook page, requesting entrants post a picture that depicted 'Autumn' for a chance to win a stay here. Since the competition launch in October our Facebook page has been littered with an abundance of Autumnal photos featuring the season's finest colours, activities, furry friends and spectacular scenery.
The winning image combines two of our favourite things - Autumn and Dogs and our Facebook followers seemed to agree! We have loved seeing the entries each day and we are delighted with the overall image and hope that Rachel and her guest enjoy their complimentary stay with us here at Bassenthwaite.
