Start collecting tokens from Saturday in the Sun newspaper. Lots of dates for easter, spring and May bank holidays.

Anyone got any favourite sites to recommend?
Mine is Nodes Point on the Isle of Wight

Yeah, my cheque was cashed on Jan 31st. Hopefully means that I have got one of my choices, anyway.

Thanks ChippyMinton

kazbeth, when you are allocated a site & date the site will send you info about how to upgrade and also to extend your stay.

kazbeth Fri 18-Jan-08 18:02:03

can anyone tell me how you get upgrades? Do you have to wait and contact the site directly or do you wait until you get there?

Thanks

nappyaddict-primrose valley and thorpe park are good, don't know about the other 2. Primrose valley are really strict about passes and that, if you forget them you have to back for them to get into the pool and club but Thorpe park are pretty relaxed imo. i've put both of them down for march or April

Scramble, it usually comes to less than £100, especially if you take you're own linen.

nappyaddict Sat 12-Jan-08 01:53:06

what are primrose valley, rockley park, thorpe park and golden sands like.

nappyaddict Sat 12-Jan-08 01:03:21

i always pick the ones where there isn't a service charge or charge for passes then it is literally just £9.50 each.

How much do the holidays actually end up costing, I am saving tokens ansd will haev towait to bbok as I have no booking ref.

nappyaddict Fri 11-Jan-08 22:35:50

what we've done before is send off to separate booking forms with 2 lots of tokens and only put 1 date on each instead of 4, and so that they were straight after one another making a week. as long as you send it off straight away you should get it.

piglet04 Fri 11-Jan-08 14:18:29

warmwell weymouth. anyone booked here with the sun and extended? wanted to know if it was expensive to extend and stay for 7 nights instead of four??

Justbeme,
I think you can take dogs to some of the parks.. perhaps put a note in with your application and then they'll give you one where they allow you to take dogs.

we have been on a few Sun Holidays, our favourite one was 'Seashore' in Great Yarmouth... worst one has to be Romney sands, wouldnt go there again. Mind you it was at the end of the season, so might be better earlier on. It may well have improved by now as we went about 3 years ago.

Does anyone have the address to book online, as I've lost my booklet. I've started a new thread asking, just in case this one gets lost sown the pages! ;-)

Trix11 Wed 09-Jan-08 22:01:48

You can only book some of them online - if it is available to book online there is a little red box to indicate so.

justbeme Wed 09-Jan-08 21:58:52

Does any one know if you can take dogs on the Sun Holidays? I remember checking conditions before but couldnt see.

nappyaddict Wed 09-Jan-08 21:37:13

oh .... why not?

Trix11 Wed 09-Jan-08 21:31:33

Oh I could not see for looking - it was only the one I had marked as my first choice park - now I realise I cant book that one online.

Trix11 Wed 09-Jan-08 21:27:04

Thanks - we are only planning two nights Friday and Saturday just a short break.

Mysonsmummy thanks for the code.

nappyaddict Wed 09-Jan-08 21:15:12
