O.k does anyone fancy this challenge ???

I want a weekend away preferable 20th oct to 1st november but any other fri - mon considered.
It is for 2 adults 2 kids and 1 infant.
It needs to be as cheap as possible and i mean cheap, definatly no more than 100 quid and preferably less.

Oh and we live in brum and don't want to spend the whole weekend travelling so not too far away please.

So whos up for the challenge ???

What do you fancy? City, beach, countryside or family fun?

Don't really mind just really fancy getting away for a while as we haven't been anywhere since may last year.

3 nights starting 15th October at Butlins (minehead)- half board in silver level self catering is £115.93!
I know this is a bit more than your budget but it is a significant discounted deal. The same holiday in a standard apt for the weekend beginning the 29th Oct costs £356!

Cheers soapbox, i had looked at the butlins website but then reliased it would be halloween weekend hence the high price.

I really would prefer those dates if poss as dp gets paid on 28th oct so we would at least have some money to spend whilst there.

Meant to say that we would prefer s/c

This cottage in Wales is £156 for the weekend (over budget I'm afraid). Sleeps 4 excl infant I think.

no not dodgy!! - i had tried to do link to travelodge cheap deals during half term but it was actually a link to an email i had received from them about the offer. i thought it would mean that all my personal details and possibly credit card info would be displayed for the whole world to see!! So spent whole afternoon panicking, probably unnecessarily having since learnt about cookies and how PC's know who you are etc etc......but got tech to delete anyway...

If anyone's interested, travelodge do have good deals but i'm not going to attempt another link to their website!!
