Win! A relaxing break for two in the Essex countryside

We've teamed up with Menzies London Chigwell Prince Regent to offer one lucky reader the chance to experience the beautiful side of Essex and win a two-night break for two at the hotel in Woodford Bridge.

Ideal for exploring the countryside or for a day trip to London, the unique hotel combines the grandeur of a stunning listed Georgian house with the conversion of an old chapel, but with stylish and contemporary décor throughout.


It has recently benefited from an extensive refurbishment and features 61 spacious en-suite rooms, including executive suites that offer Sky News channels, a laptop safe, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities.

There is a spacious lounge, bar and extensive grounds and gardens for you to relax and unwind in during your visit. Guests at the hotel can also enjoy free car parking and WiFi.

Take a trip to Roding Valley Park, a mosaic of rough grassland and tall herbs with small pockets of woodland and scrub to discover or visit the ancient woodlands of Epping Forest, London's largest open space and one of national and international conservation importance.

For a different way to explore the area altogether, take a step back in time and enjoy the romance of heritage travel aboard the traditional Epping Ongar Railway which departs from Epping Forest station, just a short distance from the hotel.

The hotel is within walking distance of the Central Line underground station and just seven stops from London's central attractions, including Oxford Street's shops and Big Ben, plus 15 minutes from the O2 Arena, Olympic Park and Westfield Stratford City.

After a long day, you can return to the hotel for an intimate dinner in the hotel's newly refurbished brasserie restaurant overlooking the gardens and serving a selection of classic British dishes. In the morning, enjoy the new breakfast buffet offering a wide selection of healthy, cold and hot buffet options.

The prize includes: A two-night stay at the Menzies Prince Regent Hotel for two adults in a standard room, breakfast and dinner (drinks not included) on both nights. The prize is valid for six months from the date of issue. Dates subject to availability and bank holidays are not included.

For your chance to win this fabulous prize, enter your details below before 9 July 2013.
