i went last week, to Minehead.

LOVED it. the kids had a great time (5,5,&2). we spent quite alot of money there (for 4 nights) but such a great time. we went all inclusive-fod good, typical english choice iyswim? lots of activities, free things to do, swimming pool fab, etc.

Am going back at Xmas for 'Winter Wonderland', the kids liked it so much!

anything else you want to know?

oo we're going to Bognor in 5 weeks! Never been before though so can't help! Apparantly (according to rellies) dd(3.2) will love it We'll see!

Nemo2007 Sun 12-Aug-07 20:28:19

Eddas have a good time

softmusk thats what we think, as long as the little fishes are happy then we will be. They will be 16m,2.5yrs and 4.5yrs when we go so it seems ideal spot for them. We are going to book Gold in Skegness with DB+B so should be relaxing.

ooh tell me more about minehead please. i just agev in to the kids and booked for october. the kid went to biognor one with my mum alst year and loved it, but dh and i have enver been site fans so am apprehensive about it. but think the kids will be in 7th heaven at all the rides etc.

JARM Mon 13-Aug-07 11:12:31

minehead is ok, its been 4yrs since i was there though!

did prefer skeggy, but i think its all about what you do, it was my first time away with my now DH - no kids, so cant really comment on what was there for kids, except the kids disco each evening - hillarious!!!

JARM Mon 13-Aug-07 11:41:10

Nemo2007 Mon 13-Aug-07 21:31:51
