stayed fri-mon fathers day weekend, before i went i was abit apprehensive with the reviews i read but most of them were with room or apartment accommodation so i thought what the heck lets make the most of it. Gt a 3 night gold caravan for 7 people(relatives came with us) for 270 quid(less than 40quid a person for 3 nights)go to the official butlins caravan site for prices. I thought this was really cheap compared to the 500pound+ quote for 2 rooms for 7 people at the butlins site.
Check in on friday was quick and simple no signing business, just gt our key a little map and onto to our caravan, sandhills 260, when we 1st walked from the butlins caravan reception it seemed that we passed so many caravans on the way to ours but realized after it was only a 5min walk from the caravan to the butlins. Opening the door to our gold caravan and wow, clean and very nice, everything you need. Only downside was carpet was a little dirty but everything else was like new. At night no noise at all apart from the rain 1st night, 2nd and 3rd night really nice weather, in the day the odd kid you can hear playing outside their tent but very peacefull.
We explored the butlins site about an hour later just to take everything in, yes it was noisy in the butlins big tent but again what the heck, lots of kids all enjoying themselves and my kids 3 and 9 loved it.Over the weekend we took in the waterpark, fantasy island the beach and didnt even have time to use our wrist bands for the kids funfair at butlins, the soft play area or skegness markets!, defo 7 nights next time.
The food was good we gt fish and chips(4.95) from the shop in the butlins site next to the spar and on the 2nd night brought back burger and chips(2.99) from a shop at fantasy island so not expensive at all, cant complain about the restaurants as never ate from there. Only money we really used was the arcades. Shows were free and the que's whilst long were not horrible like people were making out.
Checkout on monday again literally 30 seconds handed in the keys and on our way bk. To sum up great trip will be back for 7 nights next time
