For anyone that has a touring tent/caravan and likes Butlins (or whose children do!) this could be a good deal.
On all other school holiday dates the price per night for touring pitches is £75!
The price outside of school hols is £45 a night which I still think is expensive but I suppose you are benefiting from great facilities.
Butlins Minehead have the May half term dates as May 24th - May 30th so these are priced at £75 per night or £200 for the weekend (£180 midweek Mon-Fri).
From May the 31st which is the bank hol Mon the price drops to the off peak price of £45 per night, or (now heres the bargain) £65 for a midweek break . If you wanted the Monday to Sunday it's £65 for the midweek and £75 for the weekend so £140 for seven nights . Even better if you've stayed before you can get 15% off these prices if you book before Feb 19th making a weeks stay £119 for up to six people. This price includes fun passes.
Could be a cheap way for a large family to stay at Butlins during a peak week. Just cross your fingers for good weather!
As far as I know there is no website for the touring facility. I received the rates and a booking form in the post. The tel/email for booking or info is 01643 [email protected]
Just to note I have never stayed on the touring site. I registered on the mailing list when we bought our caravan in Aug 2008 and now receive offers as if i'm a previous customer. Might be worth adding your name too if you're thinking of booking. If you do it prior to booking they may see you as a previous customer and you might get the extra 15% off. Worth a try anyway : )
