Share your #DraycottDoodles for the chance to WIN an overnight stay for two

They say a picture paints a thousand words, and for the last 20 years our guests have been expressing their love for the Draycott with doodles drawn in our visitor books.

Whether they wanted to thank us for the hot chocolate we delivered to their suite before bed, the champagne we served on their arrival or just let us know they had a good night sleep during their stay, our guests have shared some of their most treasured moments at the Draycott in doodle form.

And now, for the first time, we have gathered these precious moments together and shared a selection of our favourites.

How to enter the #DraycottDoodles competition

We think all special moments should be marked with a doodle, which is why we are calling you to share your own #DraycottDoodles for the chance to win a one night stay at the hotel and afternoon tea for two.

Simply tell us what made the moment drawn in your doodle so special. It might be a glass of champagne in front of a roaring fire to toast an engagement, a long winter walk with your family, or a relaxing beach holiday with your best friend – whatever moment or milestone, we want to know about it.

To enter, simply post us a doodle on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #DraycottDoodles and tagging @TheDraycott, telling us what made that moment so special in the caption.

Good luck.
