MINI has joined forces with VisitEngland and Visit Wales to entice fans out into beautiful parts of the country with the opportunity to stay in new Mini Countryman adapted with a special roof tent!
New Mini Countryman fans can't buy this opportunity to spend a night in the special tent. In addition to the amazing rooftop camping, you could be staying in locations that you can't normally access as a member of the public.
You could be in the tent on a new Mini Countryman overlooking Durdle Door, on the fabulous Jurassic Coast in Dorset; you might be in Snowdonia, Wales, looking at a beautiful, glacial valley; or you could be taking in the lovely Cheddar Gorge in Somerset.
Why is Mini Countryman doing this with the tourism teams?
The organisers are making the most of the trend to take a holiday in our own country!
The British population is taking more interest in holidays and short breaks in Britain. From January to April this year (2017), Brits took 11.4 million breaks in England alone. And, Brits took 44.7 million domestic holidays in England in 2016, according to VisitEngland. That's 2% up on 2015.
Taking a 'staycation' in the UK is on the increase. We Brits love our country's scenery, we love the easiness of being able to drive from home to a holiday in our own country, and we find it less stressful than travelling abroad (Just think about that long security queue in the airport...!).
How can I get to stay in a new Mini Countryman?
To stay in a specially designed luxury roof tent by AUTOHOME on top of a new Mini Countryman, you don't part with any money. You have to enter a ballot.
The roof tent is going to be comfortable so you can go to sleep under the stars and wake up to a beautiful sunrise in one of the selected sites (Or, if it's been like the weather this week, you might need to bring your wet weather gear!).
Where do I go to apply to stay on a new Mini Countryman?
To enter the ballot, simply enter your details on the MINI website here: www.mini.co.uk/roomwithaview
Remember - it's free and you could have the opportunity to spend a night in a part of England or Wales that few people get to access and see some magnificent views and scenery.
