We were supposed to be going on holiday on 16th April, but it's fell through.

We still want to go somewhere but it has to be very very cheap, a real bargain.

Any where in the u.k considered, self catering for 2 adults 2 children and 1 infant (with own cot).

The challenge is set

Should of said that it doesn't have to be for that particular date, would consider others.

here are the results of a search I did. There's 3 on that page for £282 for the week - various locations. Is that cheap enough, or do you need cheaper?

Nuttie - we have just bought a brand new 3 bed caravan in Camber Sands, East Sussex. We won't be using it 18th April onwards.

I think Butlins is rubbish anyway, but didn't like to say!

LOL LOU. We have been before, to the Minehead and Skegness. Would never go to Skegnes one again and the food was crap at the Butlins one, but beggers can't be choosers

We have been to those ones too. Would rather have my eyeballs prised out with rusty pins than set foot in one of their establiskments again.

How long would you want it for? If it's for a week let's say £175. The site is really nice and peaceful with a lovely beach and a good clubhouse for the kids. There are 4 indoor swimming pools there. We've been there so many times that we decided to buy a caravan. Done Butlins (hated it) and Haven (too expensive/busy) but this is a really lovely site. Oh constant gas (no bottles to worry about). We're going there this weekend to pick up the keys so if you're interested, contact me and I'll be in touch on Monday.

Talking of Butlins last October we did a quote and it worked out cheaper for us to go to Portugal so we did!

Those prices were really good emsiewill, thanks for that.

I think though that i may have persuaded dp to go to France in June. Found a site French Life i think, where a 10 night holiday in a s/c caravan inluding ferry is only 298. It would mean i could visit some family i've got there, and dd would only miss a few days off school as we would go in whit week.

Thanks for your offer 21stCG, it was really nice of you.
