How would you like to explore the spectacular waterfalls and striking castle ruins of the Yorkshire Dales, while enjoying scenic and rewarding walking routes that lead between small guesthouses and welcoming country hotels?
Enter our ‘My Inntravel Postcard’ competition, and you and a companion of your choice could be in with a chance of doing just that!
We’d love to hear more about your travels, so for our new competition we’re asking you to send us a ‘postcard’ – a favourite holiday image accompanied by a caption of up to 100 words. The postcard must relate to an Inntravel holiday, but we’re very happy to receive entries inspired by past trips, as well as by breaks taking place this year.
What better excuse to enjoy a 2021 Inntravel holiday, or to look through old holiday photos, and reminisce about special experiences from years gone by?
Upload your postcard – a favourite holiday image accompanied by a caption of up to 100 words – via our simple form. It’s also possible to enter via social media, and we’ve included some instructions further down this page. However you enter, be sure to first read the terms and conditions.
Each monthly winner will be notified by the 15th day of the following month; don't forget to sign up to our email newsletters for news of the latest entries and winners. We've also included our five favourite entries from June further down this page.
Postcard of the Month
Each month, from June until November 2021, we will select a Postcard of the Month, the prize for which is a delicious hamper from renowned Yorkshire bakers, Bettys. All monthly winners will be entered into the ‘Grand Final’.
Boasting impressive waterfalls, atmospheric castle ruins and verdant slopes criss-crossed with drystone walls, Wensleydale is one of the Dales’ prettiest valleys. Discover its many highlights on our 6-night walking holiday.
If you’d prefer, you can send us your postcard via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #MyInntravelPostcard. Please include a caption, and be sure to tell us which Inntravel holiday is featured.
We are thrilled to have received so many excellent entries as part of September's My Inntravel Postcard competition. It’s never easy choosing just one winner, but we can now reveal which entry our judges have settled on as their favourite. Below, we’ve also included the other four postcards that made the judges’ final shortlist.
WINNER! A postcard from the Brecon Beacons
by Phoebe and Gordon Reid
Take a large measure of the beautiful Brecon Beacons (mountains, countryside, canals and some very cute sheep), fold in a generous portion of brilliant Inntravel organisation and detail, flavour with delightful hotels and B&Bs, top with excellent local pubs and restaurants, cook gently in some unexpected September sunshine, with no added (rain) water: there you have it – a perfect staycation, ready to serve!
A postcard from northern Portugal
by Sara Crofts
By the time we'd reached our final hotel – the Pousada Mosteiro Amares – we'd notched up a lot of hilly walking miles and were more than ready to put our feet up, after a refreshing dip in the elegant outdoor pool of course. So, we picked a quiet spot on the extensive terrace and ordered an Aperol Spritz as the sun went down. I’m not sure what the former residents of the beautifully converted monastery would think about our cocktail hour pleasure – but for us it was the perfect peaceful holiday moment.
A postcard from Aveiro
by Anne Woods
As soon as we arrived in Aveiro we knew it was going to to be a beautiful place. Stepping off the train in the heat of the afternoon, we noticed this gorgeous old train station building that has been lovingly restored. The typical Portuguese blue and white tiling was magnificent. Once we'd settled into our hotel and received our hire bicycles we cycled back to the station to get that perfect holiday photo backdrop.
A postcard from Andalucia
by Julia Cleveland
Yes, that’s me. Dwarfed by natural grandeur.
We were walking through Andalucia to Ronda, the magnificent hilltop haunt of Hemingway and Welles and their bull-fighting compadres.
But on the way, on a crisp Autumn morning, we swapped the White Villages for the Green Gorge and found ourselves dizzied by the vultures wheeling above us.
At midday we reached this, the Hermitage, a majestic cave at the end of the gorge. And in that precise moment the sun aligned itself and bathed the rocks in utter beauty.
A postcard from the Amalfi Coast
by Paul Wynn
Day 5 of our Amalfi Coast holiday saw us walking from Bomerano to Positano. The first part of this walk was along the challenging “Path of the Gods” with its steep drops to the sea and its magnificent panoramic views. But, for me, one of the best views of the day came after we had left the “Path of the Gods” and arrived at the statue in Nocelle. From here we could look down on Positano where a cool welcoming beer was waiting for us at the wonderful Hotel Buca di Bacco.
