Butlins Ambassador 2012/13

August 10, 2012Mandi Morrison

As you will know,  if you have read about our family holidays here, we usually go for a cottage in a quiet area and spend the week out and about going to beaches or out walking, so when I heard that Butlins were looking for Ambassadors I was very curious about the whole Big Holiday Experience and applied, although with six children I didn’t think I was really in with a shot.

However, last week I found myself with blackberry in hand as the Ambassadors were about to be announced on Twitter and complete and utter shock Hex Mum had actually been chosen!!

The children were extremely excited and immediately found the brochure that I had been sent just a few weeks before and began looking at everything that goes in there.

After discussing with Asa, he had actually visited the Butlins at Skegness last year for a tourism Conference and had said at the time that it was very nice and not at all what he had imagined it would be like.

Of the three Butlins sites, Skegness is the nearest in terms of travelling, and anyone with six children will know, the shorter the car journey the less likely mum  is to go insane!!

I looked on the Butlins website and typed in our requirements, we decided that the second week of the Easter holidays 2013 would be perfect, we would be home the day before Neva’s birthday and no-one would get any letters from schools about holidaying in term time!!

Because of our size we would not fit into one of the self catering apartments, however there is a rather nice looking Silver, Dinner Bed and Breakfast with four bedrooms that would do very nicely.

I am rather excited as this is a completely new experience for us, even having meals included is a first.

I am sure the children will adore the entertainment and the clubs/activities on offer, who knows maybe this will be the start of a new era of holidays, or maybe just an occasional change to our rural cottage holidays, I guess we will have to wait and see…

Throughout the year I shall be bringing you updates and maybe even a little special offer or competition, so stay tuned and remember to check back towards the end of April to find out my honest opinion of a Silver Butlins Holiday which I think for the price is actually very reasonable, will it live up to the family’s expectations…
