FROM exploring the Cornish fishing town setting of ITV’s Doc Martin to throwing on their fancy dress and hitting the pub, our readers tell Laurie Stone all about their favourite ways to get the most from Sun Holidays.
‘It’s one big adventure from the minute we arrive’

KEY worker Callie Rhodes cannot wait to take children Jakeo and Mayzie on their next Sun Holiday.
The 29-year-old mental health support worker has been extra busy throughout the pandemic — while Jakeo, ten, and Mayzie, eight, have been at school the whole time.
Callie says: “It’s going to be a great pick-me-up for the three of us. After everything we have all been through, we just can’t wait to get away.
“I am really looking forward to spending quality time with the kids.”

The family have been going on Sun Holidays for the past couple of years.
Their favourite location is the Haven Blue Dolphin holiday park in Filey, North Yorks, not far from their home in Selby.
Callie says: “The children adore going to the beach.
“If the weather is nice, they’ll splash in the sea. They can spend hours building sandcastles and they also like to collect seashells and unusual stones.
“It’s great to see them so happy and enjoying themselves.
“Other times we’ll walk along the beach, but nearby there are lots of great places to take a stroll. It’s like one big adventure from the moment we arrive to the minute we leave.

“We’ll also take time out to visit the local attractions. It’s always a question of trying to pack everything in.”
She first heard about our fantastic Sun Holidays through a friend.
Callie says: “To be quite honest I thought it was too good to be true. It sounded ridiculous.
“And I thought there had to be a catch. I half-expected for us to turn up and be told we were sleeping in a tent.
“But I thought I would give it a go as, at the prices on offer, I really had nothing to lose.
“But it was absolutely amazing. The accommodation was spectacular and so spacious and had everything we needed. The children thought it was so exciting.
“I actually believed it was a mistake and that they had put us in the wrong accommodation.
“I went back to reception to double check, but they said we were where we should be.

“The staff were superb and so efficient. They were so friendly to the children and straight away I could see that the park was safe and secure.
“It just ticked all the right boxes for me. Everything was just so positive.
“That’s why I know that having worked all through the lockdown period, and with the children having had to take in the new social distancing rules at their schools, we are now ready to relax and have a wonderful time together.
“Now it’s me recommending Sun Holidays to family and friends.
“I always post photos on my social media of us enjoying ourselves at the park.
“I am so proud that my children are having a great time.
“You can’t beat Sun Holidays and I am happy to shout it from the rooftops for everyone to hear.”

One of their favourite destinations is picturesque Port Isaac, in Cornwall, where the popular TV series Doc Martin, starring Martin Clunes, was filmed.
Tracey, 50, a self-employed health and safety consultant, says: “It doesn’t matter how many times we go – we have been enjoying our Sun Holidays for more than ten years – there are always new locations to see and enjoy.
“But we keep going back to lovely Port Isaac and looking out for all the filming points for television’s Doc Martin.
“It’s a beautiful part of the country. There is an incredible number of parks but we keep coming back to Cornwall.
“We just love the amazing scenery which is the ideal setting for our cycling and walking – that’s what we enjoy doing on holiday. It’s the perfect way to relax.”
