Comment on Butlins Skegness Reviews by angela.
We are going back to butlins next week after a wonderful holiday last year. We left the resort twice last year to go to skegness town and to the market in ingoldmells which is well worth a visit! beach was lovely at butlins but we only went once as my son (8) doesnt like the beach very much. There was always something on for the kids, wrestling/puppet shows/character performances etc. which they loved.
The holiday last year cost us around £1,500-£2,000 including accomodation, food, spending money but we were staying in a caravan off the main resort, this time we are staying in a silver apartment with a dining package (im praying the food is nice as i have 3 fussy eaters!) and upto now, before we’ve even arrived, we’ve paid £850 (accomodation, coach, dining package) and we’re taking another £1000+ in spending money. so as you can see we could easily afford to go abroad but we have chosen not to.
Also you say you had to walk 40 minutes to get from 1 entrance to the next, it takes about 5-10 minutes max. as we walked it on our way home from the market, but i do agree, better maps and organisation are a must! we could never see where anything was supposed to be and even looking at the map now i dont think i could find a few things
