Dad Wins £2 Million Home and Reveals Special Connection to Location


Simon Williams Wins Dream Home in Devon

A lucky dad, Simon Williams, has won a stunning £2 million home in Devon after entering the Omaze Million Pound House Draw. The prize also includes £100,000 cash to spend.

A Personal Connection to Devon

Simon, originally from Kent, has a personal connection to Devon. His late father used to bring him here for family holidays when he was a child, creating fond memories. The picturesque cottage holds a special place in Simon's heart.

A Dream Come True

The beautiful five-bedroom cottage is set in enchanting woodland that borders Dartmoor National Park. It features spacious living areas with large windows, a sleek bathroom, and state-of-the-art appliances. The property also includes a separate two-bedroom guest house.

A Win for Charity

The Omaze Million Pound House Draw has not only made Simon a millionaire but has also raised an incredible £1.7 million for charity. The funds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support, an organization that supported Simon's father during his battle with cancer.

A Surreal Evening

Simon almost missed out on his life-changing win when he almost ignored the phone call informing him of his victory, thinking it was spam. However, he answered the call and was in sheer disbelief when he found out he had won the house. Simon celebrated with a glass of fizz before needing a lie down to process the surreal moment.

A Generous Host

Simon plans to make it up to his friends for canceling their dinner plans by treating them to a meal at his new £2 million house. Local estate agents estimate that if rented out, the property could raise a monthly rental value of almost £3,000 per month.

Supporting a Cause Close to His Heart

Simon entered the draw not only because he loved the house and Devon but also because Macmillan Cancer Support is an incredible charity. Having lost his father to cancer, Simon knows firsthand the amazing work they do. The funds raised will help Macmillan continue supporting families affected by cancer.

A Proud Achievement

James Oakes from Omaze expressed his pride in the Omaze community for raising over £20 million for good causes across the UK. The £1.7 million raised for Macmillan Cancer Support will have a significant impact on the lives of many people living with cancer.
