A holiday at Butlin’s is the perfect opportunity to give you and your family a glorious break from the daily routine and help you make the most of your time together. You can book your holiday now for as little as £10pp deposit.

We believe a beautiful ocean, fresh sea air and plenty of space to play are the essential ingredients for a brilliant family break away. All three of our resorts are right next to some of Britain's loveliest (and sunniest) beaches, each hosting our famous fun-filled Skyline Pavilions, surrounded by landscaped gardens and family-friendly places to stay.

We all know the best places to stay are the ones where you feel most at home. That’s the thinking behind three exciting new developments at Butlin’s - the return of the Chalet, the Shoreline Hotel and our Seaside Apartments.

To make sure our latest accommodation really does meet the needs of modern families, we’ve consulted experts. We’ve worked closely with people like Mumsnet, they told us families want open plan living areas, board games, village greens, lovely views and somewhere they can unwind together, and this is what we hope to have created in our new developments.
