Couple Raffling Off Their 'Luxury' Cottage And It Could Be Yours For Just £5

Couple Raffling Off Their 'Luxury' Cottage And It Could Be Yours For Just £5

A couple in north Wales are raffling off their two-bedroom cottage to one lucky competition winner - and tickets cost just £5.

The 19th century cottage has been fully renovated to a high standard by current owners Katherine Jablonowska and Ryan Mclean and now entrants can be in with a chance to win this dream home - worth £290,000 - for less than the price of lunch. Where do we sign up?

Interested applicants also need to answer a trivia question to enter the competition to win the beautiful Cwellyn Cottage.

Katherine and Ryan are hoping for 80,000 entries and are asking entrants to make a voluntary £1 donation to The Children's Society on top of the £5 competition fee.

Cwellyn Cottage is situated between Snowdonia National Park and the Llŷn Peninsula in north Wales, so there's plenty of coastline and mountains for potential winners to explore.

The couple bought the cottage in September 2018 and immediately set out restoring it. The renovation took around 18 months and the results are well worth it!

Katherine and Ryan have now set up a website to showcase the incredible work they've done to the cottage since buying it.

The before and after images show the cottage's transformation from working barn to luxury family home, including the restoration of some of the property's original features.

They told LADBible the idea to offer the property in a raffle had been in their minds for a couple of years ago, after seeing the success of similar competitions.

Katherine said: "We thought 'That's a good idea.' So we spent some time researching it - and thought it was a fantastic way to sell a house.

"It gives someone the chance to get on the property ladder. It's a little piece of heaven."

Ryan added: "It's been quite the journey. It took approximately 18 months. It was long, hard days - from 9am to 11pm. It was very much a hands-on project.

"It started off as a working barn so we tried to keep a few of those features, the ones that were hidden when we bought it."

The couple embarked on the project after taking a break from their day jobs in order to try something new. They took on part time jobs to supplement their income during this time and the project proved to be a positive experience.

"It turned out to be exactly what we needed," added Ryan.
