WIN! A Cotswold Candle Co Gift Set

Reader Treats


This stand-out candle range from wax wizard and mum-of-three Polly Oswald is inspired by the classic scents of the Cotswolds. Who needs to get in the car when we can have this much fun at home.

All hand-poured in a little workshop at the end of her garden, they’re made with 100% UK-sourced ingredients – from the soy and mineral wax to the wicks, fragrances and super-cool packaging. And the combos are delicious, a range of 22 gorgeous fragrances, from Bluebell and Cassis & Rose, to Sorrel & Lemon Thyme.


With autumn on the doorstep there’s no better time to stoke up the fire and curl up with a great book and a fabulous candle! And we have a fantastic Mini Gift Box to giveaway to one lucky candle lover.

The beautifully packaged prize will contain a candle, reed diffuser and room spray – all in the new scrumptiously autumnal Cinnamon Orange & Clove scent.


To win just answer the easy-peasy question … good luck!
