I can't wait to go. We're off to Bognor Regis and it's right on the beach. It will have everything for dd who is 20 months and if the weather is rubbish (god forbid) at least there will still be things to do.
I go to Butlins every year - but will only stay in the really nice apartments and always go self catering.
We really enjoy it. October it will be quite quiet - but that is not always a bad thing. It is such good value for money. I think I wouldnt go if we didnt have ds and were not skint though. But there is so much for him to do and I must admit if he has a nice holiday then we do!
