Wimbourne in Dorset is the location of The Forest House which which was recently listed for sale on Savills. According to the estate agent the property has been "imaginatively re-modelled to embrace its delightful wooded setting". It was listed for sale for offers in excess of 2.5million! The property has also featured in a write-up in The Bournemouth Echo and it has been described as one of Wimborne's most amazing homes. Wimborne is a perfect base for exploring Dorest and Hampshire. The New Forest is to the east whilst Bournemouth and Sandbanks are south. Head east and you can explore the stunning Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

About The Property

The property in Dorset comprises of five bedrooms, four of which are on the first floor. All four bedrooms have their own en-suite whilst the main bedroom has a dressing area. Downstairs is a large kitchen/dining space plus drawing room. These are joined by another bedroom which also has it's own en-suite. A terrace area surrounds the majority of the ground floor. Head down to a lower ground floor and you'll find rooms that have been designated as a study and cinema room plus access to the garage. A 100,000 cash prize will be included though to help you settle in, pay the cleaning costs to keep the look pristine, or hang on to it long enough to sell. All furnishings are included. If you win and are thinking about rental opportunities then Omaze suggests that you can realise between 5000 and 6000 per month.

How To Enter The Competition

To enter the prize draw you simply need to purchase tickets. Tickets for the competition cost 10 for 15 entries. Unfortunately you can't purchase less than 10 worth of tickets. Other ticket packages cost 25 (40 entries), 50 (85 entries) and 150 (320 entries). A recent new option is the subscription service. Pay 10 a month for 30 entries. Do check the terms before siging up for this! For a free entry you can send a postcard or envelope to the address given on the website. This is worth doing as "once a postal entry has been processed it will be entered in to the next available draw and all subsequent draws until the final Grand Prize drawing". Postal entries have an equal chance of winning as any one paid entry. If a postal entry wins a prize there will be no further purchase or payment necessary to be notified of the win or to receive the prize.

Guaranteed Prizes

As we mentioned in the other competitions, we think that it's worth entering this Omaze competition as the prize is guaranteed even if not enough tickets are sold. This means there will be a home winner and no competition extensions. Additionally there are early bird entry prizes on offer and the chance to win weekly cash prizes. For example enter before 12th May 2024 and you could win a Mercedes G-Class. Gift vouchers are also being given away in Big Dreamer giveaways that will also take place during the promotion. In terms of good causes, Children In Need will also benefit from ticket sales. Omaze has guaranteed a minimum total payment of 1million for the charity - we think that this is much higher than previous draws? Note that the competition is open to UK residents only.

Our Verdict

This is a stunning looking property located in a beautiful part of The UK. It's well worth downloading the estate agent PDF file (linked above) whilst you can as it paints a good picture of what's on offer. The biggest surprise is that it was bought by Omaze rather than picked up by someone with a few million burning a hole in their pocket. As usual though there's not much to nitpick with Omaze as by now we all know what they do. The choice of charity partner (Children In Need) could see a lot more interest added though which is great for Omaze and the charity but maybe not for your odds of winning. Anyway let us know your thoughts in the comments below where you'll probably also find some discount offers etc. Enter Competition Here
