Mother-of-three Anna Wakelin from Bishops Itchington couldn't believe her luck when she heard she had won the Courier's Carrick Travel/Holiday Options competition for a holiday for two in Croatia.

Anna had visited the region about 15 years ago and had always wanted to go back. She has also been trying to fix for some time out with mother Marian who lives in Staffordshire.

So, while husband Dave stays at home minding the children, Anna and mum will be jetting off for some quality time together.

Anna said: "It's a beautiful place and we had been talking about trying to go back. When I heard I had won it seemed an ideal opportunity for my mother and I to take that break we had been promising ourselves!"

Carrick Travel, Warwickshire's longest established independent travel specialists with travel offices in Coventry, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon, had teamed up with Holiday Options, a specialist independent tour operator to Croatia, Corsica and Sardinia to offer the prize in a competition in the Courier that attracted nearly 400 entries.

For Carrick Travel, managing director Sally Carrick, said: "Croatia is a rising star in the Mediterranean. It has sun, sea, scenery, historic sites, friendly and hospital people, something for everyone. Anna and Marian will be able to step on a plane in Birmingham and step out less than four hours later just few hours later to a fabulous week away."

Holiday Options sales and marketing manager Rupert Diggins says that while Croatia is becoming an increasingly popular destination, it is still an "unspoilt jewel in the Mediterranean crown".
