    Are they any good? I can only think of butlins, pontins and haven. I used to go to haven with my cousins when i was little but we werent allowed to take part in anything. Im thinking for july when jake is 1. Anybody think they are great or crap? any particular resorts that spring to mind as being fantastic? Ive also considered renting a cottage but do not have a clue about them either :?

    haven is fab but center parcs is better!!!!! i love it
    we are looking at going in may, you can get some really good offers, you just have to put a few different dates in the holiday planner on the website and you should find something in your price range

    We would like to go to centre parcs again but it is quite expensive. We have had some codes where 4/6 of you go cheaper in Jan/ Feb time. Catch me on MSN sometime if your interested?

    I didnt enjoy Butlins but DD did (she was 10) and there was just me and her so when she inevitably buggered off to do things with kids her age I was on my lonesome (123 ahhhh!)
    Entertainment can be expensive there but for a budget holiday its OK. I think most say skegness is better (I went minehead)

    Went lots of Pontins & Havens when I was a kid, they were fun if you liked swimming, I guess it depends on what you want to get out of a holiday and with Jake being one then I dont think it really matters where you stay so long as there's things to do within a reasonable distance. Holiday camps are better for when the kids are older and want some independence to go off to do their own things.

    Try ParkResorts.com. We often visit the park 'Heacham Beach' in Norfolk and we love it! Really relaxing and right on the beach. We have a weekend booked for Easter weekend which cost £126 for 3 nights, but in the past we have picked weekends up for as little as £54. Bargain!
