Hi, this year I''m hoping to take my son away on a few holidays. My ex thinks he isn''t old enough yet to spend a full 7 days away from her (he''s 4.5)so wants to restrict these to 3-4 days. I took him away last year for 4 days to Norfolk and we had a really good time, but I''m basically looking for ideas, and experience of other people in the same situation.
4 days pretty much rules out going abroad. I have looked at Eurodisney but it is so expensive, and the time it''s not (sept onwards) he starts school.
I have zero fear that my son wants to spend time on holiday with me, as we have a great time together. I''m just looking for ideas really.
Centre Parks do midweek and weekend breaks.They are quite expensive but do late deals sometimes so it''s worth checking them out.
I''ve not been but I know people who''ve been with children and they have loved it.
Butlins is fantastic and fairly reasonable if you book in advance. I''m taking my 2 on my own next week for 4 nights, cost including food was £274. You''d get a much better deal out of school holidays, has he started school yet? So much to do there and there''ll be people to chat to - I''ve been twice but when I was married, not nervous about taking them on my own though.
Caravans are great too, sun £9.50 hols fab. Not sure about center parcs, think it''s better when they''re slightly older.
I took my three daughters when the youngest was 5 to a pgl activity holiday, really reasonable,kids thoroughly enjoyed it, they do family breaks and there were a number of other single parents there. I even abseiled with my 5 year old,great memories.
