    can anyone help. I'm looking for a haven type site to take the grandson weekend of 6 August . Like swimming pool entertainment slot machines bowling etc to spoil him and keep him entertained.

    Looked at stanwix which is ideal but too faraway he gets travel sick. Haven want £140 for two nights even with mcc discount.

    Anyone any other suggestions ?

    I'm in Stoke on Trent

    Callow top in Derbyshire sounds nice. Not been yet but looks good for kids. Or did you want coastal

    Looking for the sunny side of the street
    Edit: sorry, posting finger got carried away!

    Ours loved Callow Top,the only time they cried when it was time to go home but that was a long time ago & it was all outdoor so you needed the weather, no idea how much it's changed.

    Have you seen Tattershall Lakes in Lincolnshire....it's on pitchup.com

    If you havnt been and like this sort of site, I can throughly recommend the Blackpool one, bus right from the gate to centre of town, and I know this is not what you asked but out of season you can get get some real good deals here.

    Have you considered Southport...
    Ok, not a site but you can park at the Pleasureland car park and overnight. £10 a night, basic facilities water tap and somewhere to dump the toilet.. Lots to do for the kids..
    Lovely park and play area, funfair next door, beach and prom just across road. Pier, amusement arcades, Swimming pool / water park also over the road. All the usual food places inc weatherspoons and Mcdonalds etc..
    Then go through Liverpool under the tunnel and onto New brighton. Free overnight on the prom and ideal if you take a bike.
    Visit the fort etc..
    We did this with our grandkids last year, it was October and cold but they loved it..

    I took my granddaughter to C&CC Conkers site last weekend. No swimming pool etc, but ideal for kids. Lovely site, helpful staff who parked my within sight of the playground and a chip van calls Saturday evening. Ten minute walk through the wood to Conkers Discovery Park where there are loads of things to do. If he likes playing with other kids it's perfect. IMG_20160710_102110029_HDR.jpg Cost me £26 for the weekend, on grass, no electric.

    Agree with you , I wouldn't like to be paying it, but if that is the sort of thing you want , couldn't recommend this site more highly.
    Parked under trees with your own tap and grey water thing, electric hookup and you wouldn't know you were in a big camp , quiet and clean, shows on at night for free that you would pay a lot of this to go to in other places.

    Yes Southport is great for the kids ......Beach is fine but sea is a long way out that's the only downside
    I had a lovely time with my grand daughter with funsters it could have been warmer but that didn't bother her! Lovely play area and safe cycling no road to cross£10 a night good value for summer seaside location .
