The property on offer is a two bedroomed cottage that has been extensively renovated from a former working barn.

Snowdonia National Park is just 15 minutes away so the property could be perfect for holiday rentals.
How To Enter
Visit Cwellyn Dream and purchase tickets to enter the competition. You'll need to complete your details and answer a multiple choice question to qualify. Note that the question does change. To complete the entry you'll need to purchase tickets. These cost £5 each. All entrants are asked to consider a £1 donation to The Children's Society - thereby making the entry £6. All donations that are made will be matched by the owners.
A free no purchase entry option is available. Details of how to enter via a postal route are given in the FAQ and terms. The owners of Cwellyn Dream aim to sell 80,000 paid for tickets (£400,000) in order to create a home winner. As far as we can see there isn't a maximum ticket level therefore the competition will run until the closing date in September. The promoters reserve the right to extend this date by just 28 days.
Cash Prize Alternative
If insufficient tickets are sold then a cash prize alternative will be awarded. This will be the money taken from ticket sales minus an administration fee. This fee is capped at 20%. Unusually the promoters layout the potential cash prizes in their terms. For example if 40,000 tickets are sold then the winner will receive a £160,000 cash prize. Note that the matched charity donation will only be met if the minimum number of tickets is sold.
As part of the competition all entrants have the chance to win £10,000 via referrals. The entrant with the most referrals will win the cash prize. However this award will only happen if the minimum number of tickets are sold. In short the promoters want entrants to advertise their competition and support their chosen charity. However they will only reward these points if the property is sold. We think both these points are a little bit unfair.
This is a very nice property and at £5 a ticket is reasonably priced. The purchasing processing is incredibly smooth too. Given the location and holiday rental potential of the property we would like to have seen some information relating to this on the website. Running costs and possible rental incomes could help persuade entrants who might not wish to live in North Wales.
It'll be interesting to see how this competition pans out. The images of the renovation are well worth a look. A charitable donation from the promoters - on top of those given by entrants - regardless of how the competition finishes would be a nice gesture.
