We stayed in this room here at The Bull Hotel in Bridport, Dorset, a bit of luxury following our recent accomodation of six nights in a tent with the children camping in Devon.
Both trips were clearly very different with the whole of the camping week costing less than two nights in a hotel! But, it got me thinking about holidays in general with children and what else we could do with them apart from camping and festivals - which you know I clearly love!
Obviously we left the children at home for the hotel trip but some families use luxury hotels for a family break. I personally wouldn't choose to do this with my two and we keep the hotel breaks for the grown ups. So, what else to do?
Well, and I'm still a little bit surprised to be saying this, how about Butlin's?
I never thought I would consider Butlin's as a holiday destination for me and my family as I thought it was all cheesy smiley faces, jazz hands and evening entertainment. However, after meeting Katie from Butlin's at BritMums Live, I have been convinced otherwise and have been accepted as a Butlin's Ambassador for 2012/13! This means I get to see first hand just how a Butlin's break works. I must say the accommodation looks pretty impressive and I'm planning to take my family away for a self-catering break sometime next year, probably at Minehead.

That apartment looks good enough for us.
Have you been on, or ever considered, a Butlin's break?
As a happy camper / boutique hotel lover am I going to like it?!
