Win a three-night break in the Alps at the Ritzenhof Hotel und Spa Am See, Austria @ Sunday Times

The winner and a guest will stay for three nights, on a half-board basis, at the four-star-superior Ritzenhof Hotel und Spa am See, in Saalfelden, Austria. Set on the shore of Lake Ritzensee, this elegant contemporary hotel has developed its own programme of Alpine wellness, combining local and seasonal food, unique treatments in its destination spa and a fitness programme that harnesses guests’ personal biorhythms.

In the surrounding hills and mountains, there are 250 miles of footpaths, 450 miles of biking trails, six golf courses and three separate ski resorts.

The prize includes one spa treatment each for the winner and their guest, as well as return flights to Salzburg from a London airport and transfers.

Bull Sand Fort

*Pretty sure, well, 99% sure this is the right answer but I'll be damned if I can find anywhere that says this is 808 acres (I'm sure The Times pluck numbers out of thin air at times; not the first time I've had this problem with their distance / measurements)


thank you


The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for Spurn - ywt.org.uk/res…rve has this as 327.04 Hectares, which is 808 acres, so I'd agree with your answers.
