The owner of a luxury caravan in Devon is offering members of the Free Stuff in Plymouth Facebook group the chance to win a free week-long break in his holiday home because "some people need a break in life".

Karl Bennett, who said he was in a good mood, posted photos of the holiday home in Challaborough Bay, near Kingsbridge, and asked members of the group to post a comment for a chance to win a stay in the property which sleeps nine.

He wrote that kids and pets are welcome and that everything was free except for food, drink and entertainment.

The Daily Mail reports that other generous members of Free Stuff in Plymouth followed suit, offering kids' toys, a Christmas cake, gym memberships and even a cooked Christmas dinner.

Danna Kemp, who has two autistic sons and a daughter, told the Plymouth Herald that she contacted Karl about the caravan holiday.

She said: "Karl is away at the moment but I sent him a private message when he offered the holiday to ask him what dates he had available and costs as I have two autistic sons and thought it would be good as if it's too much for them, we could come home.

"I was stunned and cried when I read his reply.

"He told me I could have 10 days in April for free to just have fun."

Capricia Vogler, who was an administrator of the group for almost two years, said: "It's absolutely amazing.

"As soon as Karl posted up his gift everyone started to get into the spirit of things because it was such a big gift."
