If I was to organise a rally at Butlins in Minehead sometime next year, would anyone be interested?
I ran one a few months back and it went down well!
The rally field is at the back of the site and once there you could be anywhere!!
Price will include entertainment passes, hook-up, showers, dogs, etc in 1 unit with up to 4 occupants.
As a guide, we paid £41 for 4 nights per unit. School holidays would be more expensive!! (price depends on what time of year).
If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know. (nice ones only please):Smile:
Site opens for rally field in April, closes in October.

Hi Suedi

We were hoping to attend your last rally at Butlins, Minehead, but as I explained to you at Warren Farm last week the dates just did't fit in for us. We will definitely be interested if you hold a rally next year, hopefully the dates will be O.K. this time round.

Hi Suedi

We would love to, but would be governed by school holidays because of the distance I am afraid.

Hi Suedi
This sounds like a great plan and I think it will be very popular. Can I ask if the last time you did this did you need a Defra certificate or is that cover provided by Butlins as they are a commercial organisation?

Check the field before you go

Hi

I dont want to put a damper on this but could I suggest someone near to butlins minehead checks out the touring field before you book. When we were there just over a year ago the field was in a terrible condition, the toilet block was disgusting, and we couldnt see any electric hook ups.

They could do so much with the field.

Good luck !!!

In reply to the last post, I would like to say that I ran another motorhome rally last year in July and am shocked at what has been said.
Ok, the toilet/shower block is not the best, but we had no complaints!! There are ample hook-ups, and the rally field itself was clean cut and tidy (although the surrounding area could do with a "face lift"!!
But let me remind you, what you are mainly paying for is for the use of Butlins if you so need it. Once in the rally field though, you could be anywhere!!!! The main Butlins complex is a little walk away as the rally field is set at the very rear. The only noise you hear is from the steam train that runs along side the rally field, and the cockeralls in the next field.
For those who might be wondering what might happen on this rally, here is a few things you might like to know.
This will be a do as you please rally. You will recieve on arrival from me, your Butlins passes to use at your leisure.
The only thing that will be a joint event will be a morning get together sometime during your stay, for coffee and biscuits (i supply the biscuits)::bigsmile:, where a draw will take place, but no pressure!
Going on last years rally, we had an unplanned BBQ where we all shared BBQ`S, food, drink etc, and fun was had by all, for those who wanted to join in.
And also on one evening a few of us went to see a show together.
Minehead town is a little walk away along the sea front, where there are all the usual high street shops and food and drink outlets. There is also a weekly market up the road.
Sorry, but 25 feet is the max for an RV, but there could be the space if you booked 2 pitches?

Hi Sue

Why would Butlins charge for two pitches for anything over 25 feet?

Hi Sue

In the beginning you said "next year" i assumed you meant 2009. You are now quoting June ? This or next year.

The only reason I ask is that this year my son in law has used all his annual leave, so that we can go touring. However if it was Next year we would love to join you.

Well, Butlins have said that the max length for an RV is 25 feet, but I am saying that if you have a larger RV, you could use 2 pitches as long as you pay for both.

Ok thanks.

Is this the same rally/meet that is advertised on the 'other' forum?
