Here’s your chance to win an epic road trip, with a luxurious hotel stay, a scrumptious dinner and a year’s free Enterprise Car Club membership.
There’s something magical about celebrating Christmas together. But it doesn’t last, does it? Soon you’ll be driving each other crazy, holed up in that house with nowhere to go. Well, this year, we’re giving you an out – because you could win a getaway car courtesy of Enterprise Car Club, and we’ve even bagged you a hotel in Settle, so you can make your great escape.
Set off on the ultimate road trip
If the festivities get too much for you this Christmas, you can escape to the great Yorkshire countryside thanks to Enterprise Car Club. We’re giving one lucky winner a year’s free membership and £100 credit. It’s so easy, you can be on your way in minutes. Just download the app and find your nearest car – there are loads of them parked all over Leeds, so you can make a quick getaway without the usual hassle.
The trip to Settle is incredibly scenic, with loads of places to stop along the way. Head out along Otley Road and through the Chevin, but make sure you stop at the Surprise View. You can see past the picturesque market town all the way to York Minster on a clear day. From here, it’s a short drive to Ilkley Moor – why not stop at The Cow & Calf for lunch before visiting the famous rock formations?
Now carry on past Skipton and into the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Expect beautiful scenery and natural wonders as you head towards Malham Cove, a stunning limestone rock formation. The 7.6-mile trek around Malham Tarn is well worth an early start, but if you decide to have a lie in, carry on to Henside Road, which promises amazing views, before you reach Goat Lane, a stunning 7 mile stretch of road with Pen-y-ghent on your right and Fountains Fell on your left.
You’re almost there now. Head down through the valley, through Stainforth and into Settle, a lovely little market town filled with independent cafes, quirky shops and cosy pubs. It’s also home to the smallest art gallery in the world and England’s oldest surviving music hall. Settle is a wonderful base for exploring, with loads of walks right on your doorstep.
Spend a luxurious night at The Lion with dinner and breakfast the next day
The Lion is a 400-year old inn that’s filled with character. All 14 rooms were recently renovated, giving them a wonderfully luxurious feel, but they’ve stayed true to their history with rustic furniture and original features – and if you’re our lucky winner, you can see for yourself with a room for two for the night.
Once you’ve settled in and explored the town, head down to the restaurant, where you’ll be treated to dinner on us. From spiced vegetable tagine to fillet steak, you can choose anything from the menu, with £35 each to spend. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a spot of live entertainment in the bar while you’re there. And the next day, you can wake up to a delicious feed, because breakfast is included in your prize.
