Butlins Christmas Just For Tots breaks

Some of you may know that I'm a Butlins ambassador and will be going for the first time in 7 days. I just want to share something really exciting with you, their Christmas just for tots break offer is back. The first Just for tots break saw 70% of the bookings were from guests who had never stayed at Butlins before. This shows how valuable families with tots have found this deal. We as a family have never been to Butlins before but have always wanted to go and experience one of the UK's most famous of holidays. Reading about this deal now makes me think just how tantalising it would have been for us a a family with tots. Now Charlie is School age we unfortunately can not take advantage of this fantastic holiday deal.

How does the Christmas Just For Tots break work then ? 

A Christmas Just For Tots break starts from only £53 per person based on 2 adults and 2 children. Under 2s go free. Breaks start on Monday 15th December for 4 nights at Butlins Bognor Regis and Skegness. The breaks are tailored to suit the needs of families with children aged 5 and under, so are based around the term times. Butlins found that there was a high demand for breaks outside of the school holiday for families with preschool aged children.

What does the break offer ?

The Christmas just for tots break offers families the chance to experience the very best of Butlins festive winter wonderland and experience all the magic of the festive season. The break is specifically tailored to their age group so you can expect plenty of shows, music, indoor activities and character meeting.
You'll be able to meet the bug guy Father Christmas as well as enjoying Pantomimes and festive themed shows. There will also be live character shows from Mike The Knight, Thomas & Friends, Bob The Builder, Angelina Ballerina, Barney, Fireman Sam and Butlins’ own Skyline Gang and Billy and Bonnie Bear. As if that wasn't enough there will also be live music and the indoor snowstorm to enjoy with the little ones

There is a whole host of activities for the whole family to enjoy including tots-friendly ice skating rink, the Usborne Publishing Cosy Reading Corner, the Little Tikes Town, Balanceability bike lessons, tots swimming sessions and Christmas themed arts and crafts.

Why do Butlins offer these breaks?

Head of Product Development, Nick Warren said:  

“We spoke to mums who told us that they would love a break specifically designed for their little ones where they could enjoy a few days with similar types of families. After the success of the spring and summer series of breaks, the natural progression was to introduce more of them at other times of the year. Christmas is a magical time at Butlins and these new breaks will allow young families to experience our winter wonderlands together before schools break up for the holidays.”

What do we make of these breaks ?

These breaks sound amazing and looking back I think we would have had plenty more holidays to Butlins if we had these specifically tailored break for tots and families. We like that Butlins have listened to what people want and ultimately have created a break which is very much in demand.
