Incredible Cotswolds mansion worth £2.5m raffled for 47p in charity draw - with the Beckhams among neighbours

The charity draw is raising funds for The Prince’s Trust to help support vulnerable young people

A stunning Cotswolds mansion worth £2.5 million is being raffled off in a charity prize draw, with entries starting at just 47p.

The house is nestled in a charming hamlet outside Chipping Norton in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside, just a few miles from many celebrity residents, including David and Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, Hugh Grant, and Kate Winslet.

Raising funds for charity

The prize draw is being run by online fundraising platform Omaze in partnership with The Prince’s Trust charity.

Omaze is offering the opulent house to one guaranteed winner, who will have no mortgage, no stamp duty or conveyancing to pay, and will be gifted £10,000 in cash to help them settle in.

There is also the added bonus of being given your own gardener for the first two years.

Entering the draw only costs 47p per entry, with prices starting at £10 for 15 entries, and the money raised will go towards supporting vulnerable young people to secure advice and employment opportunities.

The fundraising company has previously offered other luxurious properties, including a £3 million mansion in London, and have raised £1.25 million in new funds for the British Heart Foundation and Teenage Cancer Trust.

James Oakes, SVP International at Omaze, said: “We’re honoured to support The Prince’s Trust and to help them reach a new audience to raise as much money as possible that will go to support their invaluable work helping give disadvantaged young people a chance.

“Omaze is a win-win for both charities and donors.

"By offering an incredible prize like this country mansion, we’re giving people the chance to win, while also introducing charities to donors they wouldn’t have access to otherwise.

“We’ve found this method of fundraising is making a big difference to causes all around the world.”

What do you get?

The dreamy house is newly built, with traditional Georgian-style Cotswold stone material, paired with a modern finish.

Inside it boasts five double bedrooms, four bathrooms, a huge open plan kitchen and dining space, and a private study.

And as an added bonus, it comes complete with a separate two bedroom guest cottage and 2.3 acres of private gardens and land.

While it sits in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside, it is only 30 minutes away from Oxford and just over an hour from the bustling capital.

How to enter

The charity draw will be open until 29 May and can be made online via Omaze.
