To celebrate the many glorious rural landscapes across the country, Calor Gas wants to find Britain’s best local countryside view – whether that’s a view from your garden, the office, your local dog walk, or even on the school run. 

All you have to do is submit a photo of a local view that inspires you, for a chance to win one of two luxury weekend breaks with Forest Holidays. One winning image will be voted on by the public, and the other will be chosen by Calor Gas. Once you’ve entered, let your friends know by sharing your image on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the tag #calorcountryside.

Calor Gas is Britain’s leading provider of LPG, providing gas to thousands of the nation’s rural homes and businesses that do not have access to mains gas. With a great range of storage tanks that can be hidden underground, and with new BioLPG created from renewable materials available exclusively to Calor, switching to Calor Gas won’t spoil your view or the environment.

The prize, offered by Forest Holidays, will allow winners to enjoy a fabulous weekend break in a tranquil two-bedded cabin, set in enchanting British woodland. With soaring windows, dramatic forest views and your own private hot tub, you’ll be able to enjoy spectacular views all weekend long.
