WIN! Luxury £1000 Land Rover Experience

Land Rover driving off road through a massive muddy puddle
It’s been a while since we offered up a super duper prize, so let’s kick off 2018 with a cracking luxury Muddy mini break – and it doesn’t get muddier than a Land Rover Off Road Experience or more luxe than the five star, 1650 acre Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa.

Basically we’ve begged Marshall Land Rover-Jaguar in Newbury (guess what, crying really works), and they’ve agreed to give a lucky Muddy reader the chance to make like a rally driver around Land Rover’s Off-Road course on the Luton Hoo Estate, spend a morning or afternoon ploughing through puddles and shimmying up and down impossibly steep slopes (and, um playing with the automatic boot and stereo system).

After your half-day adrenaline binge, you’ll probably need a lie down. Your wish is our command, because this prize also include a 5-star overnight stay at superluxe Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa AND a romantic dinner for 2 in the elegant Wernher Restaurant. Freaking hell, what more do you want?!!

If you’d like to view some Land Rovers without the mud, just follow your tingles towards Newbury, where you’ll find a brand new £10m Marshall Jaguar-Land Rover showroom complete with barista-made fresh coffee, Kelly Hoppen-style neutral vibes, kids playroom, drive in service reception and 20 bay workshop. Never mind the cars, I might just come and hang out anyway.
