Where’s Ted – May’s winning photo

Ted in London

Lucky Ted: papped in London by Lindsey Clark

If you’ve been on a break with cottages4you in the past few weeks you may have been lucky enough to find Ted on your travels. Ted’s currently touring the UK and we’re asking people to take photos of his adventures.

The picture above is the first of our monthly ‘Where’s Ted?’ winners. Lindsey Clark wins a Kindle e-reader and gets entered into our final round, where she could win a £500 holiday voucher, for her pic of Ted living it up in London.

If you’d like to take our little friend away then become a fan of cottages4you on Facebook and keep an eye on our wall for Ted giveaways. You can also vote for your favourite photos and guess where Ted is in our weekly ‘Spot Ted’ contests!

National Limerick Day – the winner

Inspired by National Limerick Day, we recently ran a competition on Facebook and Twitter asking for budding Edward Lears to submit their original compositions. Well, little did we know that our fans and followers were so gifted – as the quality of the submissions was really good, covering everything from holidays to toilet training(!).

In fact it was a shame that we could choose only one to win. But choose one we did, so congrats to Janice Dyson whose limerick was voted the winner – after much deliberation in the cottages4you office!

And here it is:

We needed some time away
Couldn’t find the right place to stay
Wanted a place with a view
That takes doggy too
And Cottages4You saved the day

The following entries – by Lisa Hughes, Vicki Murray and Stella Day – also get honourable mentions.

There once was a mummy so stressed
Who’s sell by date was way past it’s best
Clearing up snot, sick and dribble
Was making her wibble
She could dream only of having a rest!

There once was a woman from Cork
Who didn’t much like to eat pork.
But she liked gammon
and anything with ham on
and quite liked some bacon on a fork.

There are cottages4you to choose in the UK
There’s some in Ireland and further away
Take a ferry or a plane
To France , Italy or Spain
Or Portugal. You could book it today!

Well done everyone! And if you’re  not a fan or a follower then visit our Facebook page (where you can see the other entrants) or Twitter page to keep updated on the latest offers and competitions from cottages4you.
