I`ve often thought of booking one of these as always hard up !
I`ve collected this lot.
Cant quite understand the pricing-ther`s me and dh and 3 dc-14 11 and 4.
Do i have to pay full price for all the dc ?
Also how quick do the half term dats go-ours are on half term 26th Oct-a week later then most i think ?
Has anyone had good/bad experiences of them.
Would love to get away for a few days this cheap.
Cheers x

£9.50 each, including the DC.
You have to put down 4 dates, so put them in order with your prefreered one first.
They are good, but check out your sites on the internet first. Decide if you want quiet, or Haven-type all singing all dancing. Check out the additional costs for entertainment passes and electricity, as these can add up and give you a shock!
And get your application in ASAP, as it's first come first served.

I'm collecting I have been on one before its very good value

you just pay 9.50 x 4 with your tokens then if there are any extras like club passes you pay them when you get there to the holiday site

Your half-term dates are quite late, check and see how much it is to book the holiday direct with the campsite, as you might only save a couple of quid late in the year, and be stuck with dates/site you didn't really want.

We've done several and have had mostly good experiences.

Good value, but you still have to decide what you want out of the holiday. We have used the site as a base for day trips out, and jsut spent an hour or so swimming or in the park each day. But some sites have loads of entertainment etc. I would assume that you'll end up spemding closer to £100 buy the time that you include entertainment passes, service charges and possibly an upgrade or something.

Can anyone recommend a site ideally in Yorkshire which is more of a quiet site? thanks
