thats £350 for all of us.
now we have a 16 year old and what will be 2 13 year olds so in fact according to some holiday companies we have a household of 5 adults grrrrrrrrrrrrr ( another thread maybe)
am not averse to camping - but i havent got any gear and cant afford it - plus and this is a very big plus - i have a sciento - and therefore can just about squeeze us all in nevermind camping stuff.
so upshot is am very flexible ( campi g was an example of my flexibility rahter than a prefered option iyswim)

You can hire a nice frame tent, and all the stuff , except bedding
Oakdene forest park
It is near Bournmouth. Site has pool, club house, park, nice facilities, kids club thrown in
3308 for a week in the summer hols.....would that do you mrs?
I've been there (in own tent), and it is great, the kids had a fab time and so did we. Their tents look excellent, similar to Carvas Holidays ones IYSWIM

ding dong mb - i think thats cheaper - and even better just up the roadish

There is a pub on site. Mate said it wasn't fantastic but is there and is OK. They also have a pool complex, some kids clubs, quite a bit to do. They took their biks and had lots of fun cycling round the area. The kids had a blast . hers were 12 8 and 5 at the time. Not sure how much there would be for the 16 year old, but TBH that age is difficult in most holidays
You'd have to take bedding and towels etc, but the rest is done for you.

Mind you , you could buy this camping set up, which should fit in the car
you'd need an extra matress and sleeping bag
For £270, and then you'd have it for next years holidays! You could probably shop around and get it even cheaper if you looked, this was a quicj search from me. Basically I just want everyone to embrace camping
And then with the extra could book yourself into a campsite for peanuts!
I've just booked a week in wales for £77 in the kids holidays.
