Team Like We Did Before. We've only had one hol for the four of us; holiday cottage, car, beaches, pubs - smashing stuff.

We went to a swanky hotel with separate kids areas when I was about 7 months pregnant and said we'd go back with the nipper. But instead we went in a villa holiday, and it was a nightmare! It was lovely but it felt that nowhere was safe. Def should have done those holidays the other way round
LewisCarr 
Ah good, a lighter question. :-) We have been on a 2 week holiday in America when we had a 9 month old. (Just the one.) The holiday was similar to ones we've been on before kids, but with less driving. Now though, we live in Devon, 5 miles from the sea, and surrounded by fun holiday stuff to do. Recent holidays have been Butlins, Bluewater (like Center Parcs,) and a rented lodge on a small holding with morning tractor rides.

I saw a TV ad for Butlins the other day and couldn't believe how posh it looked!
LewisCarr 
Lisa Tantrum - They make the TV add look posh? Who'd have thought it? Hehehe. It's one of the better holidays, if you go for Toddler Week. No big kids to knock the smaller ones over on the rides and playgrounds.
Lisa Tantrum 
I'm such a sun-worshipper that I find holidays with the nipper a bit tricky. We did Barcelona last year (and wrote about it for Tantrum - shameless plug alert) but am tempted to go for a family-friendly shindig with a kids' club.
LewisCarr 
Lisa Tantrum - I worked for Eurocamp a few years ago, and will be doing it with our kids when they're a bit older. Look to Brittany, sailing out of Plymouth, with a decent sized water park in the campsite.
Lisa Tantrum 
@LewisCarr - great tip! Never heard of Toddler Week! I have been to Butlins for All Tomorrow's Parties, and there wasn't a kid in sight, only bearded indie dudes and girls who looked like Joanna Lewis. We got the lazy river to ourselves, practically. It was amazing.

Lewis wins this week, I think! Five stars for this 'I must not bully Katie Taylor' post. And he didn't bully Katie Taylor so that's a double win!
LewisCarr 
We're about 90 mins from the Minehead one, It's less than £300 for 5 days, 4 nights, in a place big enough for my wife, the two kids and Grandma. I send them off there to get a week of peace. :)

Time to fall asleep in front of Sugar Free Farm...
LewisCarr 
Lisa Tantrum - I thought that was going to be an awfully middle class kids TV show, where all the animals eat Quinoa and Alfalfa...
