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 August'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 Yorkshire Dales
by Matthew Jelley
First day of Autumn in God’s Own Country
Polished racehorses strutting through the market square
A murder of crows wheeling round the castle keep
Swallows swooping low over the meadows; a hare careering across the field;
Hazy afternoon sunshine under the sycamore for our picnic
White sheep by the drystone walls in the afternoon; Black Sheep Ale on draught in the evening
Walking through Wensleydale. Every bend in the footpath a new photo opportunity - say cheese…
A postcard from Umbria
by John Main
One of Inntravel's many "worthwhile detours", a bit of shade in the middle of a hot Umbrian autumn day in the tiny and ancient village of Campo Vecchi. The population appeared to consist solely of a multitude of inquisitive cats. We were heading for Norcia, a beautiful old town famous for salami and truffles. Tragically this area was devastated by an earthquake a few years ago. We hope to see it reappear one day on the Inntravel list, and we'll go back to see the cats of Campo Vecchi and to indulge in the gourmet delights of Umbria.
A postcard from the South Downs
by Nick Tranter
Taken whilst relaxing with a pint on the edge of a wheat field at the Royal Oak in East Lavant - the end of a good day's walking from Chilgrove.
A postcard from Sicily
by Michael Corfield
The glorious vineyards of Relais Santa Anastasia where our Sicilian walking holiday finished. These vineyards provided a lovely setting for the last days of our holiday and they also provided delicious wines for the last nights!
A postcard from Mallorca
by Rebecca Comley
“Ring the Bell” for a glass of fresh orange juice made from half a dozen oranges picked and then squeezed by the farmer in front of our eyes. One of many magical ‘slow’ moments and unexpected pleasures on the walk from Soller to Deia during our wonderful Inntravel holiday. The ‘Citrus Groves and Dramatic Coast’ didn’t disappoint, providing endless sensory and visual memories- ripe tomatoes, homemade bread and olive oil, the smell of pines, ancient olive groves, an abundance of huge juicy lemons, breathtaking sea views and the bluest sky....not forgetting the well-deserved Campari-Naranja to round off a satisfying day’s walking.
