Your original post is quite hard to understand due to the lack of punctuation.

yes thanks

I've booked holidays through sites like these, never had any problems. You have to use your common sense and gut feeling at times, it seems to be on the level though

thank you

Site looks very basic, but that doesn't mean it isn't legit.

How did you pay?

If you used a credit card, you have nothing to worry about.

Skip that and pay be credit card if you can. If not, Paypal may offer you some protection - but read up on it first.

You should pay the deposit on a credit card, it will then cover the whole purchase even if the rest is paid for in cash.

ive spoke to them and asked if i could pay the remaining by card and they want either bank transfer or cheque which will be safer ? i was thinking if i send cheque by recorded delivery i at least know they are where they say they are

you could maybe try calling butlins at skegness and confirming that the private owner has told them its booked for your dates and maybe see if its booked in your name?

the phone number change could just be that they've changed it.

i've just found this. nothing is really smacking me with a scam vibe tbh:
