Stars of Channel 4's Escape to the Chateau, Dick and Angel Strawbridge, are giving two people the chance to win a luxurious overnight stay in the Honeymoon Suite at their antiques-filled French escape, Chateau de la Motte-Husson.

What's the prize?

The winning pair will receive the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay at Dick and Angel's 45-room French chateau and explore the beautiful 12 acre estate, surrounded by a moat. The winners will stay in the quirky Honeymoon Suite (as featured in the series) and tuck into a delicious dinner cooked and hosted by Dick and Angel themselves! All the winners' are asked to arrange themselves is travel to and from The Chateau.

How to enter?

Dick and Angel want to know all about your journey! Whether that's a personal transformation, a developed skill, or a challenge you've overcome to maintain your personal wellbeing, or that of your family, during this tricky lockdown period.

Dick and Angel say: 'We all know the importance of having a project that excites us; it’s good for the soul and gives us something to look forward to. At this strange time that we find ourselves in, we’re focusing on enjoying family life, looking after ourselves and letting our creativity flow – having a project, or two, on the go keeps the grey cells active! We hope people at home will feel inspired to have a go at entering and we can’t wait to see all their fabulous ideas and achievements.'

Dick and Angel have also launched two more competitions to lift spirits during this tricky period...

The Literature Competition gives budding writers the opportunity to see their original work, from short stories to encyclopaedias, designed and published in print by Chateau Publishing. The winner will be voted for by the public, and will generate a royalty-based income for every copy that's sold via Dick and Angel's website. Click here for more information on how to enter!

And, for aspiring artists, the Christmas Card Competition gives six lucky winners the chance to earn commission on every box of their winning festive card design, inspired by The Chateau. The cards will be printed and sold on Dick and Angel's website. Feeling creative? Here's how to enter!
