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.

Extras & Add-ons

Extras & Add-ons

You’ll always find plenty of activities and incredible shows all included in the price of your break. However, if scaling the high ropes, going up the climbing wall or mastering football techniques also sound exciting, the specialist equipment and professionally trained tuition do mean they cost a little extra.
