Holidays, Trains And Bike Rides...


Wow we have had a few lovely days this week and it is getting me so ready for Spring. On Wednesday we decided to go visit my mum and dad, and have a day out at grandma and granddad.

They live about 10 miles away but if we walk a mile to the train station, then catch the train for a little while, it is only another 2 miles there.

So 6 miles with 2 children on bikes and me running, easy right!?!

It'll be a white Christmas at Butlins... Guaranteed!‏


We have been enjoying holidays at Butlins for over 20 years, most of our holidays have been in the summer months but I never thought of them being open near Christmas time.


Imagine having your breakfast and dinners all made up for you to pick whatever you fancy to eat at that moment in time, then sitting back and let someone else do the washing up for you! 


Also with Butlins you know you are going to get lots of top family entertainment to keep everyone in your family happy. I know my kids would love this idea.


It’ll be a white Christmas... Guaranteed!

Every boy and girl, and probably even mum and dad too, dreams of a white Christmas, and if they come to Butlins this year, they’ll definitely get one! Families will love Butlins magical Skyline Snowstorm show that takes place in the heart of their resorts - the Skyline Pavilion.

Butlins have Christmas themed short breaks at all three of their resorts, in West Sussex (Bognor Regis), Somerset (Minehead) and Lincolnshire (Skegness) from 13 December.

The whole family will enjoy everything on offer that's included in the price of their break, like an Ice Rink, the Winter Wonderland - where every child will get a free gift from Father Christmas, The Skyline Snowstorm - meaning that snow is guaranteed at Butlins, Christmas themed arts and crafts, and a traditional family pantomime.

Guests visiting over Christmas Day will be treated to a 5 course Christmas dinner, meaning that you won’t have to worry about cooking or washing up!

Head of Product Development, Alicia Coghlan, said “Christmas is a very special at Butlins - our resorts have a magical atmosphere and all of our team really get into the spirit of the season. This year we’re bringing new experiences to our resorts like the ice rink, which we know will be a real hit.”

Families can also enjoy live entertainment from children’s favourite TV characters like Mike The Knight or Angelina Ballerina, make use of the indoor sub-tropical Splash Waterworld, or enjoy the traditional fairground. Guests visiting over New Year will enjoy a New Years Eve party for the whole family, with a spectacular fireworks display, and live entertainment throughout the break.


Christmas themed breaks start from only £41 per person, for a 3 night break. Book online at Butlins or call 0845 070 4730. All breaks are priced per person and subject to availability. Entertainment may vary by break and resort and is subject to change.

Holiday Time At Butlins 2013...


Can you believe how quickly the weather is changing?

 EEK...

I've not even shared our summer holiday pictures yet!!

We love Butlins and this year we were lucky enough to visit twice. At the beginning of the summer holidays we went to Bognor Regis, where the weather was amazing and it felt like being abroad and at the end of the 6 weeks we went to Minehead.


Both our holidays this year we were lucky to have great weather and having food included always makes it so much easier for me not having to worry about cooking and more relaxing time, lots more eating, lots more chocolate cake.





When we was away it was our 17th Wedding Anniversary, this is why we were being nice to one another,, ha ha




Also I am so excited to get to choose a holiday for us all next year as we were chosen as one of the lucky Butlins Ambassadors 2013-2014. Now the decision on our favourite Butlins!!

These pictures are from our Minehead holiday...

The weather has been perfect, the sun and sea was a wonderful blue and if felt like we were abroad rather than in England. I now need a holiday to recover from my holiday!! and some help with the washing and ironing ;)
