‘Your Images of Autumn’ Competition


Ochre coloured leaves, frosty mornings, golden sunlight and fireworks bursting in the sky – there’s something about the advent of autumn that is uniquely glorious.  With that in mind we’ve launched ‘Your Images of Autumn’, a photo competition designed to celebrate the wealth of scenic beauty that occurs as summer transitions into winter.

Think you have the perfect image of autumn?  You can submit your stunning seasonal photos on the cottages4you Facebook page or post to us via Twitter. The first prize is a £100 Blacks outdoor clothing voucher while two runners-up will each receive a bottle of champagne.

Good luck and happy snapping!

Signs of Spring finalists

Thanks to everyone who entered our competition and shared one of the many ‘Signs of Spring’ that have been popping up all over the UK. We received some really strong entries, from flowers in bloom to lambs bouncing in the spring sunshine!

We would have loved to have awarded prizes to them all but unfortunately there was to be only one winner. Our judge had this to say about the winning entry:  “It still says something about spring but is a little different. The picture conjures up images of cruising along little winding singletrack roads in the Yorkshire Dales. It also has a nice element of humour and local character to it.”

We’re sure you can guess which one he was talking about! Congratulations to Phil Edwards who submitted his photo via Twitter.
