What are the Omaze Lake District House Running Costs?

Omaze Million Pound House Draw - Lake District Drone Shot

If you’ve seen the gorgeous cottage worth £2,500,000 that you could win in the Lake District House Draw then you’re probably already dreaming of moving in. Set in eight acres of land among the grassy fells, this magical five bedroom house is just 15 minutes drive from Lake Windermere and close to the charming market town of Kendal. 

Our designers have styled and furnished this enchanting home with beautiful pieces collectively worth £175,000. We take away the stress of stamp duty and a mortgage so there is nothing outstanding for you to pay. Oh, and we’ll also give you £100,000 in cash to help with moving and settling in - we take care of as much as we can so you’re free to simply move in and start enjoying country life!

There are, of course, some costs that come with living in the house day-to-day and we’ve listed these for you below to the best of our knowledge. 

We have estimated the running costs of the house (as of November 2022) to be:

  • Electricity: £250 per month (varies with season)
  • Water: £0 per month (Borehole - does not include monitoring and maintenance)
  • Oil: £600 per month (varies with season)
  • Grounds/Housekeeping/Windows: £750 per month
  • Miscellaneous: £300 per month   
  • Council Tax: £233 per month

Based on the above costs your monthly running costs would be approximately £2133 per month.

If you win this incredible home, moving in is just one option. Once it’s yours you get to decide what works best for you - moving in, renting out or selling up.

The estimated, minimal rental value from the property is £2500 per month as a long term rent. Another option is to allow a holiday company to manage short lets for you so you can enjoy your new house whenever it suits you and draw an income from it the rest of the time - for a stress-free life wherever you choose to live. 

Your entry into the Lake District House Draw also raises essential funds for Dog’s Trust, a charity committed to improving the lives of vulnerable dogs in need of vital care and rehoming.
