You could become the owner of a luxury North Yorkshire barn conversion worth £1.5 million, simply by purchasing a raffle ticket for just five pounds.

The newly renovated barn conversion in the town of Holmfirth boasts five bedrooms and three acres of land. The property also offers a double garage, a stable block and a paddock.

The conversion, named Daisy Lee Grange, was renovated by builder Marc Bryden, alongside his uncle and business partner Karl.

According to YorkshireLive, Bryden said, “It’s blood, sweat and tears and I've really put my all into it, but I thought that if I can hand it to someone and it be their dream home, then I'd love to do that.

"It would be someone who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford a home like that."

It took the pair roughly a year to fully renovate the property, and Bryden described the house as "literally nothing" prior to them working on the project.

"We took three walls of it down and then we built it back up, I did most of the work myself and ended up sleeping there with a carpet for my pillow,” he said.

"I really put everything into it, it's been a labour of love. But we're not looking to make a massive profit, if we can just pay everything off and someone can get a nice house that's all we want."

How can I enter?

You can enter the raffle here. First you will need to create an account with Raffall, verifying your email and telephone number.

To submit your entry, you will first need to answer a quiz-like question. The question relates to a word search on the page, and asks how many car manufacturers can be found in the word search.

After this, you will be sent to a payment page to purchase your ticket.

What are my odds of winning?

There are 300,000 £5 tickets available in the raffle, which will be running until 5pm on Friday 30 October 2020.

This means if you purchase one ticket, your odds of winning are one in 300,000. However you can buy more than one ticket to increase your odds.

The refurbishers are hoping raffle ticket sales generate roughly £1.5 million in total, and they plan to donate 20 percent of all ticket sales over 250,000 tickets to Holmfirth Hospice and Mind.

The company which is hosting the raffle,, will take a 10 per cent cut after the charity donations have been made. Stamp duty and other house fees will be fully paid, allowing the winner to enjoy the property stress-free, without any hidden costs.
