Reader Treats Just For You!

Win EVERY day!

Feeling festive? We are! So here’s a prize, EVERY day for 12 Days… just to show we love you!

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

No, not a Turtle Dove (where would I get one of those) but a whole Pear Tree full of terrific treats for you and all your family. But mainly you (we like you best). There’s the chance to win a prize every single day for the 12 days of Christmas (well, technically the 12 days of Christmas start on 25 Dec, but this is Muddy and we’re too darn excited to wait)! So starting today, Thursday 6 Dec, there’ll be a different prize each day up for grabs here on Muddy Kent – see my list below. And all you have to do to win is share on Facebook and Twitter. You are very welcome to enter for every single prize if you so wish…

To enter the competition, all you have to do is:

  • LIKE Muddy Stilettos Kent on Facebook, you MUST then leave a few words in the comment box so I can log your name and SHARE please
  • Or follow me and RT on Twitter
  • Or do both (you’ll double your chances).

Simple as that. I’ll draw a name out of my virtual hat and announce a winner every day, each evening.

So let’s see what’s inside my Santa’s sack…

1. Squerryes House of Brut and Flint & Oak Christmas hamper (total worth £212)

Squerryes Winery in Westerham and neighbouring Delicatessen and Farm Shop, Flint & Oak, have teamed up to kick start our 12 Day bonanza in style with this unique combined giveaway. Squerryes have kindly donated their signature gift box containing both their gold medal winning wines from the world championships – one bottle of their very first 2010 vintage and two bottles of their current release 2013 vintage (worth £127). But wait, there’s more! Flint & Oak are donating a signature hamper for people that love their cheese, but are never sure what best to have with it (worth £85). From a delicious bottle of Mas Amiel dessert wine to cheese biscuits from Paxton and Whitfield as well as a delicious range of confits and chutneys to complement both hard and soft cheeses. The perfect Crimbo combo!

2. Two tickets to enjoy Christmas Alpaca Treks, at Reuthe’s The Lost Gardens of Sevenoaks – (2 kids tickets worth £50)

Win two tickets to meet the adorable furry friends and let them lead you on a one-hour guided trek through Reuthe’s, charmingly referred to as the Lost Gardens of Sevenoaks. (Dates Dec 8, 15, 20, 21 & 22 subject to availability). The stomp through the woods will be followed by a woodland-themed Christmas decoration craft workshop and story time with Christmas Tree Hot Chocolate in a yurt. (And for those that don’t win – they also have Alpaca Experience Gift Cards that can be given as Christmas presents and used next year!)


3. Christmas Wreath, Sue Davies Flowers (worth £40)

Have the best dressed door on your street, with this gorgeous display by Sutton Valence-based super florist Sue Davies Flowers who specialises in offering a unique personal service to clients who are arranging a wedding, celebration or any special occasion. What’s more, for three months of the year Sue’s florist store in The Old Butcher’s Shop, in the middle of the village turns into a perky, quirky Christmas pop up store – packed with gorgeous unique decorations – think wreaths, garlands, baubles, lights and ornaments of every kind. And this Christmas Wreath has been made up especially by Sue for today’s lucky winner. (N.B. the winner needs to be able to collect from Sutton Valence – gives you an excuse to browse the store!)

4. Family Ice Skating ticket! Calverley Grounds, Tunbridge Wells (worth £44)

Now this is something a bit fun and festive. You can snap up tickets for 4 (2 adults, 2 children) to slip-slide/skate/dazzle (delete as appropriate) on the Calverley Grounds popular pop-up ice rink in Tunny Wells. Make a day of it and browse through the food and market stalls and grab something to eat and drink. The perfect prize for all the family!

5. 12 Luxury Christmas Crackers, by Fraser & Parsley (worth £48)

Win 12 luxury crackers, from gorgeous local designers Fraser & Parsley, all carefully hand crafted in England. You won’t get these anywhere else because they’ve saved the very LAST box just for you, dear Mudster, having already entirely sold out! The navy blue and white crackers depict a snowy white Christmas scene and are filled with super cute kitchen utensils (like a wooden mustard spoon, a handy salt scoop, a small lemon juicer, a tiny cookie cutter or a mini grater). There’s also a silver hat, a joke and a snippet of the Christmas story. Sweet and stylish.

6. Kitch, Animal Neon Scarf (worth £29)

Kitch, the Best Women’s Boutique in Kent, as voted by you in the Muddy Awards 2018, is a gorgeous treasure trove of delights. It’s the perfect destination for those eclectic individual brands for the girl who likes more than the High Street offers. Throw this gorgeous Animal Neon Scarf over any outfit and you’ll be bang on trend – blending leopard print with a colour pop – yeah babycakes! (And for the rest of us that don’t win – remember it’s late night shopping, until 7pm, at Kitch every Thursday from now until Christmas).

7. Audrey earrings by Catherine de Crevecoeur (worth £30)

In case you hadn’t noticed we’re big fans of jewellery designer Catherine’s range of beautiful, bold statement earrings. Hand-made using quality leather with gold plated findings (that’s the bit that goes through your ear) they are so light-weight you’ll forget you’re actually wearing them, until someone compliments you, of course. These pretty gold stars will take you from daytime to night-time and all through the party season.

8. Two Course Meal for 2! Chapter Pizzeria, Canterbury (worth £50)

Win a 2 course meal for 2 at Chapter, a Sourdough Pizzeria and Bar in Canterbury. Have whatever you fancy from the Chapter’s menu, they have a wide range of pizza topped with the finest Italian ingredients and wood oven dishes like Lasagne and Cannelloni (yum). Including a drink each, you won’t be disappointed by their mouthwatering cocktails, fine wines and curated beer range. Grab your partner or take a friend! (Meal to be redeemed any date from Jan 2nd and valid for 6 months.)

9. Colney cherry tree, Bentinck Farm, Pembury (worth £50)

Bentinck Farm is a small, independent fruit and nut farm who has come up with the fabulous and quirky idea of letting you rent your own tree for a season (March to October). And the winner of this prize will be able to enjoy their very own Colney cherry tree for a season! Cherry pie with a Cherry Amaretto Sour, anyone? You’ll receive a certificate showing the type of tree, the individual number which can be personalised (this makes a lovely original gift – just sayin’).

10. The English Beagle, Fine Bone China collection (worth £48.60)

This Kent-based online gift boutique handpicks all the best British brands with bags of personality which is why Muddy loves The English Beagle, of course. Transport farmyard tradition to your kitchen table with the entire range of this gorgeous Fine Bone China collection, displaying the characterful, country chicken. Consisting of Condiment Jar, Small Jug, Medium Jug, Breakfast platter and Chopping Board – all for one lucky, we mean clucky, winner.

This also includes entry to the Christmas Markets, Motors by the Moat, the Grand Medieval Joust and many other of their sell-out events, for the lucky winner. Better still, next year will mark Leed’s 900th anniversary next year, and so these tickets would include entry their summer Carnival of History in July 2019!

12. 2 Nights stay, The Snuggery, Nr Cuxton (worth £240)
