Is Butlins the UK's Best Staycation?

Times are tough for many families, with finances being squeezed harder than ever. With households struggling to cover the basic cost of living, an annual holiday abroad has become something of a pipe dream.

Don’t despair – you and your family will get away this year! The UK has lots to offer fun-loving families who are looking for affordable holidays closer to home. Butlins is one of the popular options, and here’s why:

It’s Affordable
Butlins breaks are designed to be affordable, with holiday options to suit all budgets. You can choose from standard, silver and gold apartments, as well as rooms and deluxe rooms. The Bognor Regis resort also has three fantastic hotels, including the brand new Wave hotel designed to appeal to families with 8-14 year olds. Cushelle are currently running a competition for you to win a family break to Bognor and try the Wave for free!

When you add to the great value accommodation, affordable dining plans and the fact that many of the activities on offer at Butlins are free of charge, it’s clear that even the smallest holiday budgets can stretch to a Butlins break.

It’s Fun Filled
The joy of Butlins is that is caters for all ages. Every member of the family has been thought about, with hundreds of different things to do. Sports, arts and crafts and kids’ clubs run daily, with quality entertainment for tots through to mums and dads (and even granny and grandad!). Throw in a free funfair and Splash Waterworld and there’s sure to be never a dull moment!

It’s an All Weather Holiday
While Butlins can’t guarantee sunshine (such is the nature of the great British weather!), what it can guarantee is a great time regardless. The sub-tropical Splash Waterworld is a fantastic place to have fun, come rain or shine, and many of the activities and shows are held, or can be held, undercover. You might not need your bikini for the beach, but you can have just as much fun with a bucket and spade!

Butlins has to be a strong contender for the UK’s best staycation, so why not book your bargain break today?

  1. That sounds like a lot of fun! We live in Florida and we're actually "staycationing" right now, too. =)

    Thanks so much for stopping by. People don't tend to explore the place they live and it's really great you are staycationing at the moment - hope you have fun :)
