To anybody who has never been on one of these hols - dont do it!! It is nothing like £9.50 after you pay all the charges they bang on AFTER you book...... Freeeeezing cold
#2
Most of the Haven Holidays during the school hols have are all gone this year. So you'd have to be prepared take the kids out for a week or Fri/Mon. Still a good deal though - might be tempted

Totally agree - went to Brixham, Devon. Beautiful scenery, crap park, crap mouldy chalet, crap facilities, NEVER again!

Must be luck of the draw then.
I've been to Siblu in both Brittany & Aquitaine & they were both superb. Also did the Lake District & Rookley on the IOW which was great esp if you fish.
You dont have to add the entertainment & linen packs if you dont want them - just ask them to take it off the bill before you go.

A holiday that cost £9.50 would be the very reason I would not go.

Voted hot. Just came back from one with the girlfriend and her family to Duinrell in Holland. The camp site was wonderful and exceptionally clean, combined with an amusement park and within decent distance of Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

We've also been to Faremoutiers in France, which was also very clean and the people there were friendly.

At the end of the day, you pay very little for a week away. Yes, there will be bad eggs in amongst the bunch but you get what you pay for. In my experience, we've got a lot better than what we paid for.

Don't be so bloody snobby!

For some less well off families, these holidays can be a nice break of the usual routine.
I've been on one of these a few years ago in Wales - nice caravan and we had a short drive to Chester Zoo for the kids.

Nobody forces you to stay on the campus!

Yawn - not ready for this debate. Waste of money but not just £9.50.

My son who's now 4 absolutely adores these holidays, been on 3 now, sometimes the camp's aren't the greatest, or the staff aren't the greatest, but he has the best time ever, we have a lovely time, went to the states at the beggining of the year to stay with my sis, and apparantly that wasn't a holiday cos there wasn't a caravan! Depends on what you want from a holiday, if you want to keep the kids happy then this is great! each to their own.

i have been Duinrell 3 times its a top place the kids love it
wassenaar is a lovely little place as well
will be back there again next year for sure
ps.. did you try the little cafe right over the road from Duinrell top fry up
#12
tbh 9.50 is nothing for these places it should be free, went to a similar deal to pontins few weeks back for the weekend the prices for almost everything is a joke!

Strangely enough, when I ask my kids which holidays they've enjoyed the most, they always choose the caravan rather than the foreign holidays :?

To be honest, we used it more as a base camp to go out from. We spent a lot of time in Leiden and taking day trips to places like Amsterdam, Delft and Gouda. If we go back, I'll be sure to make sure we give Wassenaar a better look around. :)

We got caught out with this. Cost us £90 in the end for a caravan that was old and disgusting. Guess we was just unlucky.

Funny thing is, we own a 3 year old caravan 50 miles up coast from where we booked this.
Why the Mrs did it I will never know!.
#16
Any know any dates yet, would like one of these

We got back from a mon-fri holiday in Nairn last month and in total it cost £110

Promotional Unit £60.00
Ents Passes £12.00
Service Charge £24.00
Bed Linen @ £12 £12.00
Total Cost: £108.00

God knows why it was £60 and since there was a child under 2 we got money knocked off of an ent pass but since someone else was on holiday in the same spec caravan and it cost him just over £400 it still worked out a cheaper deal.

I guess if its to a place you enjoy its cheaper than paying full price but a bit misleading saying 9.50 holidays.

Will definately book again as having a small family it certainly eases the stress on the wallet.

Costs well over £9.50 and are generally full of chavs and teenage mums.



So 'Chavs' and teenage mums are not allowed a break then? Maybe Monaco is more to your liking, full of rich, pompous prima-donas to use your generalisations!

By the way I'd love to go to Monaco, but I'm poor :-(

It seems that some people, including yourself have been required to spend over the £9.50. Unsure why that is, but when we went a few years ago, that's all we paid and like others have said we mainly used the nice, clean caravan as a base while we went on day trips of nearby places of interest.

Ah! I see, so you paid £9.50 per family member and then passes on top of that?

H & R added.

Our 4 yr old daughter LOVES haven and pontins, yes the accomodation is 1 star, but seeing our daughter have a FANTASTIC time with the fun characters and entertainment staff makes staying in the standard rooms worth while.

These holidays aren't about what the adults want, its about making memories for your kids, there not at the age where they understand 5 star holidays in the caribbean.

Some people need to quit with the snobbery and comments about Sun readers.

I cant afford holidays abroad or holidays at centre parcs, but these holidays are affordable and most important our daughter loves them.

Thanks again

You usually have to pay for a minimum of 4 people, plus entertainment passes (dont have to pay for under 5 yr olds), then services/electricity on top of that (usually £8 a day).

Still worth it if you cant afford 5 star caribbean holidays though.

Ok.BUT!! The final price is the sting.

Yep my brother has just come back from Pontins in Brean (Sun holiday) said it was the worst expeirence of his life! The place was 70's/80's full of chave couples that let their kids run riot while they get drunk in the bar, then should abuse at their kids while todlers and other kids can hear them!

Also had to pay an extra £80 a week before they went, didn't get any paperwork from Sun holidays so when they went to check-in at 12:30pm they were told to come back at 4pm!!!! Not good with two young kids and nowhere to go! Never heard of a check-in that late!

Also had to pay for a £45 "entertainment" pass (the use of the word 'entertainment' is loose) that they never were asked to produce to anyone and aside from some crappy shows for the kids in the day the "entertainment" was non-existent! Also had to pay extra for bed linen etc, all extra hidden costs so your £9.50 soon becomes nearer £200 then everything is so expensive when you are there, would be better to go abroad instead at least you'd get better weather and a decent beach.

Anyway, he said the only nice thing was Brean itself was a nice place, just DO NOT got to Pontins in Brean!

What a load of rubbish, a haven holiday for 9.50 per person, good deal. You get the option to upgrade thats were price goes up. Theres plenty to do off the site, its not like center parcs (which is excellent but you think that because of price) Stop moaning....remember next year none of us will be going holiday, the taxes will be soo high!!!!! VAT 20% yippie for starters.....

My children love these holidays although i will admit we went to a pontins site and it was awful, just came back from the Isle of Wight which was a sun holiday and it was fantastic, thanks for adding this we will defo be booking for October. It may not be to everyones taste but we have at least 2 sun hols a year and our holiday abroad, the £9.50 hols (£100 after all charges) allows us to take the children away more times per year bonus to us, HOT HOT HOT thanks xxxx
#31
We booked up a Monday to friday holiday at the Warmwell site. It's a fantastic site and at this time of year it would normally cost around 800 pounds. We paid 160 pounds for the five of us. Excellent value for money. And as for the comment "Sun Readers holidays should be avoided like the plague" Don't judge a book by its cover. It may not be the best of tabloid papers but are the rest of them much better? I don't think so. The Sun comes under the same umbrella as The Times.

Its nothing to do with the paper, its about the deal. I hardly think the £5 free Morrisons voucher deal got so HOT because people appreciate the Suns journalism.

I agree, i find it rich some people browsing cheap deals have the audacity and arragonce to b1tch about everything they find.
#34
I wouldn't want to go anywhere populated by people so snobbish they wont associate with sun readers, voted hot. I've been on several of these, and bar Pontins in Southport they were all great. And thats not the suns fault, its just that particular Pontins is a ****hole!

Agreed these are never only £9.50 but they are depending on date booked a lot cheaper than going direct to company, although do check if holidaying out of high season whether you may get a better deal going direct as often they are keen to fill accommodation.
We have been on many sun holidays and we have had a few teething problems but these along with the facility's are responsibility of the sun that's the park you book do you research and you shouldn't go wrong.
Off to Italy in around a weeks time (with the sun) same accommodation booked direct would have been £1050. for 7 days we paid £121.50 as linen and extras are payable anyway, for me i couldn't no way have afforded to normal price.

Great. thanks...already going on one in october, alas if there are any dates left in the summer that would be cool, come back from one yesterday which was excellent...heat

It's called marketing . . . We have been on lots of these holidays and enjoyed them all. We recommend the following: Hendra - Newquay - Devon Cliffs - Exmouth - Penstowe Park - Bude, Bude Holiday Park, Donniford Bay (Chalet), Trelawne Manor - Looe. Devon Cliffs had great entertainment the grandchildren kept us up late. Some have had central heating, all have been clean and tidy with little noise at night. Great value.
#39
been to loads of these,never had a problem. parkdean in newquay is a pleasant site and like somebody said you can use it as a base to explore the surrounding areas. i now live in torquay and there are plenty of places to visit in devon and cornwall. the kids always enjoy it and just choose the sites that have the cheaper passes and take your own linen which i would do anyway and it keeps the cost down, have never paid more than £60 for a weekend break. enjoy your breaks guys and girls!
#40
It depends on which Park you go to. We spoke to a few people who had previously been on these holidays and we found which out which Parks were the best of the bunch. Its strange, most of the people I have spoken to weren't Sun Readers but they merely collected th tokens when the offer came round. In fact one was a Telegraph reader. Oh dear we even have conservatives going on cheap holidays. Must be something to do with all these budget cuts!
