Getting broken up with is never easy. But this year it could lead to a free vacation.

Independent Cottages, a company that represents self-catering cottages in the United Kingdom, is giving away a three-night stay to one person lucky in games and unlucky in love. And, if this sounds like a familiar plot that’s because the entire competition is based on the classic romantic comedy "The Holiday."

“It can’t be denied that a cozy cottage makes for the perfect festive setting, as you snuggle up by the fire and enjoy some mulled wine while gazing out at the beautiful winter countryside,” the website explained. “That’s why, this Christmas, we are getting into the festive spirit and giving away an English cottage stay inspired by "The Holiday" to one lucky winner. And in keeping with "The Holiday" theme, this competition is only open to entries from people who have had their heart broken this year.”

Sadly, the company noted, Jude Law, doesn’t come as a prize. But, what you do get is just as special. The three-night winning stay is at a charming home in the Cotswolds known as Farthing Cottage. The stone cottage is the ideal place for one person to get away from all the post-breakup stress. Inside, the single guest can cozy up by the fireplace, read a book off the stocked shelves, cook whatever meal they want for themselves in the full kitchen, or enjoy an English breakfast tea in the stunning garden.

And, to make sure this trip starts off as a happy one, the cottage owner will leave a little bottle of bubbly and chocolates for the winner to enjoy.

Ready to move on with your life? All you need to do to enter is share your breakup story with Independent Cottages. You never know, this could be the trip to change your entire life.
