    A bit about Butlins and the caravan parks.

    Founded in 1936 by Billy Butlin to give ordinary families the opportunity to afford an annual vacation, at its peak Butlins had ten holiday camps including one in Ireland and one in the Bahamas. Today just three of the initial parks remain under the Butlins brand, Skegness, Minehead and Bognor Regis, these are now owned by Bourne Leisure Ltd.

    As well as the apartments (all three holiday parks) and Hotels (Minehead and Bognor) there are Caravan Parks at Skegness and Minehead, situated on the actual Butlins park, the caravans offer an economical alternative to a Butlin apartment, allowing guests full use of all the facilities and entertainment, often at a much reduced cost.  There are several other advantages to holidaying at Butlins in a static caravan apart from the obvious savings to be made, these include, your own space to relax – caravans are detached, with plenty of space between, they have verandas or patio areas, often with seating, parking is outside your accommodation, no lugging suitcases from a car park.

    The vast majority of Caravans at the Skegness park are privately owned, some are owned and rented out by Butlins themselves, not all owners hire out their caravans, some choose to benefit from unlimited breaks themselves. The Park at Minehead is smaller and all caravans are privately owned, again several of these are hired out.
