Win a country break for two with Bovril’s Great Outdoor Revival

Lovers of the British countryside have a reason to celebrate this autumn, as the nation’s favourite outdoor companion, Bovril, is donating £100,000 to the National Trust as part of its
Great Outdoors Revival, helping give special outdoor areas across the country a well deserved makeover.

Bovril have drawn up a shortlist of 79 National Trust sites in need of restoration across the nation, and now we’re inviting you the public to decide where the money goes. From pathways to parks, fields to forests and campsites to coastlines, there are plenty of worthy sites that need your vote. Just think – that special National Trust place you love could receive a much-needed boost from Bovril, who will announce the most popular sites at the beginning of next year.

To show thanks for your support, the makers of the beefy drink are giving away a fantastic prize, including a full-board weekend break with HF Holidays at one of seventeen British countryside destinations across the UK, ten National Trust passes so you can explore everything from beautiful houses and castles to coastal walks and historic gardens, two pairs of his-and-hers environmentally friendly National Trust stamped Hi-Tec walking boots, two National Trust Countryside books, two Bovril thermal flasks and a year’s supply of Bovril to get you fuelled on your winter walks. To enter, answer the question below.

Keen rambler Sir Ian ‘Beefy’ Botham is showing his support by taking part in the Big Bovril Ramble on 6 November at Fountains Abbey, encouraging people to get up and out to enjoy the glorious British countryside during the crisper months. Three other rambles are also taking place at National Trust sites on 20 November and we’d love you to come along and ramble for an hour or two, so keep checking the site for full location details.
