The kids are driving me mad over how obsessed they are over their iPads, it's all they want to do. It's time to get tough and really limit the amount of time they are using them each day I think. Is there an app or anything where I can set the amount of time I'm willing to allow them on the iPad for that day, and it kind of counts down then locks / closes the iPad once the time has run out?

No idea if this works, hippo, but it sounds as if it ought to....

Just realised though - if it's their own iPads, might be too much of a headache to have a lock code that they don't know, iyswim...

The inbuilt clock has a timer that stops whatever they're playing when the time runs out. It doesn't shut the iPad down or anything but it works quite well with dd1.
