Helpful Holidays

Helpful Holidays are based in the Stannary Town of Chagford, where I worked at the Public House, the Ring O’ Bells. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor, in the heart of the West Country their original family business has blossomed. I think this is due to their friendly, yet efficient communication with the customer and their personal knowledge of the area.

Moray Bowater and his Team have all been very supportive towards my Sporting Career. This began in the years building up to the 2012 Olympics, as well as their priceless cheerleading support on my competition days in London! This made fulfilling my dream of becoming an Olympian and at a home Olympics even more special.

To round off my 2012 experience, Helpful Holidays kindly gave my boyfriend, Sam and I a weeks holiday in a HH cottage of our choice. We browsed their website whilst watching Olympic Highlights on the sofa! Chatting with the Team, hearing their personal views of our “short listed” cottages and our needs, we make a fabulous choice in the heart of St Mawes, Cornwall. This was a perfect way to wind down, having taken part in the “greatest show on earth,” on your home turf, which brings with it a world of pressures.

Helpful Holidays are now my only Platinum Sponsor in my “Road to Rio.” I’m particularly greatful of their continued and additional support, as there is still no funding for my event. I’m simply a local athlete striving to excel amongst the worlds best. Their care and professionalism recognise this, which makes dealing with their business a total pleasure.
