Dunes 73 (2nd-11th Sept 2017)

A very big Thank You to Joanne and all her team who work so very hard. We recently stayed in Dunes 73 and it was beautiful. The caravan itself was immaculate, spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need and more in it. I honestly can't think of anything we needed that wasn't in this caravan, its so well equipped. I would highly recommend this caravan, not only is it, beautiful but it is in an ideal location, very close to the Skyline Pavilion. The wifi  was great for the kids and their gadgets to unwind after busy days and despite the rain worked for our complete stay. We also added a linen bundle which was well worth the money, it was all good quality bedding and so lovely and fresh with big fluffy white towels. From the day I enquired the communication has been amazing and booking was made so easy. Whenever we visit Butlins we will always be booking with you and I will be highly recommending you to all family and friends. Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful caravan, it made our holiday perfect.

Love Donna and family 😊x        73 Dunes - Sept 2017


We stayed at 240 Sandhills for Just for Tots midweek and it was fantastic! From the very start Joanne was so helpful and booking process was easy and efficient - really friendly service. The caravan itself had to be the biggest surprise as the photos on site didn't do it justice; it was spacious, modern and VERY clean. Decor and layout are just lovely and we loved the big veranda. It was such great value for money. The owners had thought of everything and all you need for a home to home stay is there for you to use including high chair & travel cot and quilts and pillows (you need to take your own covers) which other caravans often charge extra for! Loved the board games; WIFI signal was excellent; TV in every room and site was very quiet yet close enough to walk to main Butlins site (although unfortunately the mini train was broken so we did drive a few times as I have a little one and weather was bad). Thank you so much for a lovely break, fabulous memories made - see you again soon!

RICHARD COXON - 240 Sandhills - Sept 2017

Beautiful caravan, a real home from home. King sized bed, comfy sofas and a sunny veranda. Washing machine and airer were a great touch. Nice to come back to after the bustle of a day the main Butlins complex. Can highly recommend, we would stay here again.
Emma Hughes - 241 Sandhills - Aug 2017

Thank you 
We thought the van was well equipped and good for the size of our party we are a fostering family so we are restricted to who can share bedrooms so it worked out well for us also as a managing company we found you to be very accommodating I am a travel agent myself so it is refreshing to find this level of. Service we will be advising our other colleagues in the fostering world about you thank you again 

Linda welch  - 11 Dunes 2017

Thank u Joanne for our lovely holiday! The caravan was clean and cozy. Very close to entertainment. Small problem with missing bed guard was sorted in minutes! It was our first time in Butlins and we hope to be back soon. 

Elena - 48 Dunes - June 2017


We have just got home from our week at Butlins and I just want to thank you for letting us stay in one of your caravans, 9 poplars.
We have had an amazing week, been blessed with the weather which is always a bonus! But the caravan was spotless, spacious, very modern and a perfect home away from home which was very well equipped with everything we could of needed! Our little boy had the time of his life and cried when we had to leave this morning! My parents own a caravan in Whitby which we go to often, but our little boy doesn't settle very well in theirs, but he ran to bed every night in yours! So thank you again we have had the best family holiday and are going to book again before the end of this year once we know when we can get time off work!

Best wishes  - Heather, Jason & Frankie - 9 Poplars - June 2017


Just back from a lovely October Half Term break in Dunes 36.
A gorgeous caravan , beautifully equipped and presented, in a great location, able to see the Skyline and Swimming from out of the front window which was extra excitement every morning for our two Girls !  A 5 minute walk to the Skyline every day. What more can you ask ?
Already booked up again for a week in August 2017...!


The Walker Family. Stratford upon Avon - 36 Dunes - Oct 2016

Hi thank you for providing us with a beautiful caravan 6 poplars. The caravan was lovely and very modern and clean...I would certainly recommend you to my friends and work colleagues. We do appreciate it. Thank you from Julie and family.
6 Poplars - July 2016
Hi Joanne. First timers on the Caravan side of Butlins. Always stopped on site before. Never again.. ! Much cheaper just for walking through a short tunnel !
Lovely caravan. Well equipped. One small problem on arrival. No mains water ! Maintenance came straight out.. diagnosis was a turned off stop cock !! Turned it back on and no more problems. Even they were unsure why ! 
No matter. A lovely short weekend break. Back again for October half term ! 
Nick Walker and Family - 275 Sandhills - July 2016
Just to say Thankyou for an enjoyable stay in your caravan 67 Dunes during the May 2016 holiday. The grandkids loved it and so did our teenaged son. The caravan was really clean and well supplied with dvds,games consoles and games as well as the normal little things that help that not all caravans have. This is our top favourite caravan out of all we've stayed in over the last 31 years. The grandkids have begged a return, so as you know we've already booked up for 2017. Many thanks Joanne for a stress free holiday. See you next year.
Michele B - 67 Dunes  - May 2016
We've just arrived back from our week in Skegness, having stayed in 36 Dunes - oh, it says that below!
I just wanted to let you know that we had loved staying in the caravan. It is clearly well loved by its owners - I loved all the decorative bits that made it feel more like a home. Please pass on my thanks to the owners - and thanks for running such a great site.
Cathi - 36 Dunes - March 2016
Hi Joanne,
Just a short note to let you know we were very impressed with the caravan, 29 Poplars rented this 70's weekend.  We would definitely recommend CJ'S and if we attend a weekend again, hope to book 29. 
Thanks again  - All the best Andy - 29 Poplars - March 2016
Dear Joanne
Just wanted to say your caravan is beautiful and everything we could possibly need was there.  By far the best caravan we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in a few.  Thank you so much.
Kind Regards - Sarah Shelby - 58 Retreat - April 2016

Hi Joanne,
I would just like to thank you for a great service and a fabulous caravan. Myself and my friends were all surprised with the cleanliness and presentation of the caravan. The full set of towels and bedding were immaculate. The holiday itself exceeded our expectations and was mostly because of your high standard of accommodation. I will certainly book with you again either for adults/family breaks... And would highly recommend you and CJs Holiday Homes.
Thank you very much, Sanchia - 37 Poplars - March 2016

Meena Chinji - 57 Paddocks - Oct 2015

Just returned from Sandhills 241 beautiful , so pleased the boys loved it . I usually stay on resort but never again I didn't know what I was missing with the caravans, you just couldn't wish for more. Plenty of space for the boys and us in the caravan. Only 10 min walk from the complex and it was lovely and quiet in the evening. No major road noise and safe for the children to play outside. See you again soon Sandhills 241.
Jill Gay - 241 Sandhills - Oct 2015

Having just come back from a four night stay in 12 The Retreat we were all delighted with the standard of the caravan and wish we'd have booked the vans sooner as we've stayed in the apartments every time we've gone. The van was well stocked and so warm. We were all very worried about how cold we'd be on an evening and we were toasty. Jo was great and very helpful. We do apologise for the breakage of the bowls again! The draining board got a bit slipping after a breakfast for eight!! We all even managed to sleep well. We'll hopefully be back soon.


Holly Garczynski - 12 Retreat - Oct 2015

We stayed for the Adults 90's weekend in September 2015. The communication from Joanne was brilliant, we got into a pickle with numbers and she managed to help us with a different caravan :-) The caravan was in a brilliant position, literally a 3 minute walk to the entertainment (perfect for heel wearers).  The Van was very well equipped with everything we could have possible needed, the duvets and pillows were a really high quality, TV's in each room and a really well equipped kitchen and lounge.  Thank you we will definitely be booking again. 
Kelly - 36 Poplars - Sept 90's w/e
Hi, we stayed in 275 Sandhills from 20th - 24th July, caravan was outstanding, fully equipped with everything we needed, also the service from Jo was amazing, my family had an amazing time at butlins and we will deffo be back and will be using cjs holiday homes again!!!
Thanks for everything Jo!!! 
The kelly family - 275 Sandhills - 20th July 2015
Thank you for hiring your caravan to us. It was the nicest caravan we have stayed in. The was very clean, modern and comfy and the added bonus that you provide baby equipment was fantastic.

We will hopefully be booking again next year

Zoe Foster & Family - 33 Poplars - July 2015 

We have have all enjoyed our stay in your caravan. We will be booking up for next year. X
Laura Smith - 153 Sandhills - June 2015

Julie Murphy - June 2015

Hi Jo

Well what can i say, this is our 4th stay with you and yet again we were over the moon with the standard of our caravan  (Poplars 35) and all the personal touches included, Harry was delighted to find the huge box of toys in the cupboard.
The caravans are always well kept, extremely clean and feel luxurious compared to some we've stayed in. When booking with you we always have peace of mind Knowing we will arrive to a lovely caravan. 
As for you Joanne nothing is ever any trouble, you are always there at hand. A fantastic lady running a great family business providing people with great family holidays. We can't thank you enough.

We can't wait to return in August.

Thanks again from The Thompson's - May 1st 2015
Hi Joanne,

Just a quick one to say thank you for a great holiday last week at your caravan (153 Sandhills). We had a lovely time and the caravan was fantastic. Luckily we had the weather too so loved sitting out on the deck. The kids had lots of fun.

Hopefully we will be returning at some point in the year and would love to use CJ's again!

Thanks, Claire  - 153 Sandhills - April 2015
Thanks for lovely caravan 
We had a fab time 
Will definitely like to book again for next years spring harvest
Best wishes

Kristina  - 13 Paddocks - 6-10th April - 2015
'We recently stayed in Butlins Caravan Village; located in the Sandhill section in caravan 153. This caravan is beautiful very modern and well kept. There was 6 of us that stayed in this caravan and was perfectly suited for 2 twin girls aged at 3 years old. The caravan had lots of entertainment for children, a selection of DVD's and board games to keep them happy. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and practical, each room as a TV & DVD player, which is great. Having one main bathroom and a small cloak room is perfect for a family, as we know what fighting for the bathroom is like. The caravan overall is extremely clean and practical for families. It is very modern and well planned out for a family, there is a beautiful veranda and small one located to the front of the caravan, which is lovely when the weather is hot, and which is also safe for children. We really enjoyed staying for a week in this caravan, the location is obviously further then other vans, but there are several shortcuts which are good time savers to the main Butlins Site.

Thankyou for a fabulous family holiday, we all had a brilliant time.


Sarah, Andy & family - 153 Sandhills - Sept 2014

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou, we have just stayed in your caravan and can honestly say i have never stayed in a caravan with so many home comforts, we were going to hire a pushchair as we couldnt fit ours in the car but didn't even need to do that as there was one already there. The caravan was beautiful and the we and the children loved it, also the customer service from cj's holiday homes was first class and we are and will continue to highly reccomend yourselves to all of our friends and family for a fab family holiday.
Thanks again

Tracy, Mark and family - 40 Parkside - July 2014

Just wanted to say a personal thank you for how lovely the caravan was.
Everytime we opened a different cupboard we were greeted with something else we didn't need to bring ourselves!!!
I will be happily recommending you to all
Thanks Jess & Clan xxx   -  12 Retreat  -  June 2014
I'd like to say a huge thanks to Joanne at Cjs for once again providing us with a beautiful caravan (Sandhills 241). 
We have just returned from a fantastic week & couldn't have asked for better. Our caravan was to a very high standard and provided everything we needed for a perfect family holiday.
Joanne you are a star & always give an excellent service, going out of your way to help. We look forward to booking with you again soon.
Michelle,  Paul & Harry Thompson xxx  -  April 2014
Thanks for making our holiday a good one!  The butlins resort had everything to keep the kids happy, we spent very little money as everything was included with the passes and the caravan was in such a convenient location it was easy to pop back for meals.  The van was comfortable, warm and welcoming (a million times nicer than butlins apartments).  We will be sure to book with you again.  Many Thanks for your helpful and friendly service. 
Bishton family x    -  33 Poplars - March 2014
Joanne and family,
Just to say thankyou for letting us stay in your beautiful caravan. First visit to Butlins made extra special. 
Great time had by all and hope to return soon.

Rosemary & Family  -  33 Poplars  -  14th Oct 2013

We had a lovely time staying at 33 Poplars. The caravan is very clean and cosy. Ideal for families. 
It has everything you need to make your holiday.
It is close to the main entrance to butlins and shop which is good if you have young children.
We will definatley be going back. Thanks Joanne for a lovely welcome to your caravan x

Rachel, Dan, Liam, Kyle and Ruby   -   33 Poplars  -  31st Aug 2013

As our week at Butlins Skegness comes to an end, I'd like to thank Joanne and her team for a very welcome arrival and a well prepared caravan. A first class service at an affordable price, making our holiday even more special.
Good luck for the rest of the season and will no doubt see you again next year.
Regards Martin, Joseph & Amelia  -  48 Dunes  - 17th Aug 2013
We have just spent a week in Sandhills 275 Butlins and have had a great time. The caravan was well equipped,
lovely and clean. Thanks for helping us to have a great holiday. Love the Swiffen Family x

Brett Swiffen - 275 Sandhills - 31st Aug 2013

Hi Joanne
I would just like to say I loved the caravan! It was really well designed, especially in the kitchen area, (thought the double sinks were a great idea and the mirrored cabinet), the main bedroom (thought it was well set out, along with the extra windows, giving the room more light) and the dining area, with the raised platform and glass partition.  The skylights above the dining table and in the en-suite gave extra light to the rooms which I found to be really useful.  The PS2 was very entertaining for our 9yr old son and he was delighted with the twin bedroom.   It has to be the best designed caravan I have stayed in so far. 
Sue Garnier - 29 Poplars - Aug 2013

Me and my family stayed in Sandhills 153. Absolutley lovely caravan with everything we needed to 
complete our stay.
Washing machine came in handy, defiantly will be booking again, Pleasure booking with CJ's Holidays x

Jayne Holdsworth & Family - 153 Sandhills - Aug 2013

Hi Joanne your vans r still the best in buntlins. You all r very nice people we always enjoy our holiday with you. Can't wait to book for next year. Thank you - Craig & Angelina

Hi Joanne
We had a lovely holiday and the caravan was absolutely beautiful, the best one we have ever stayed in and we have been going for over 10 years now.  Thank you very much.

Hi Joanne
Just wanted to say a big thank you for the great week spent in Retreat 12 w/e 27/7/2013.
The caravan was exceptional and the best equipped we have ever stayed in. Nice quiet location and spotlessly clean. Brilliant.

thank you,  from Heather & all the girls - 37 Parkside - May 2013

Hi Joanne,
I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful holiday last week staying in poplars 35. Your caravan was lovely, just what we needed & the added bonus of having a pushchair there was great.
We really didn't want to come home today, the week has flown by. We hope to return later in the year & will hopefully book with you again.
Many thanks - Michelle Thompson - 35 Poplars - April 2013


Hi Joanne

Just to let you know, we had a really GREAT time at the caravan!  It was absolutely beautiful, in a brilliant position, very clean and the best equipped van we have ever stayed in – the kids LOVED the PS2!  We were lovely and snug, even through the cold winds and torrential downpours!


Thanks!  -  Alison & Phil Whitmore  -  37 Poplars - 29th Oct 12

We stayed in 35 Poplars in Skegness, 4 adults 2 children and a baby. in Septemer 2012.
On arrival we were very suprised at the standard the caravan was, it was SUPERB, with everthing and more to enable us to enjoy our holiday. The location was ideal, just a short walk to all amenities.
You have gone to great lengths to provide everything for every situation, sunny or raining.
We have stayed in many caravans in many parts of the country but we must say that the stay in your caravan in Skegness was the best.
We have no hesitation to recommend your company to all our friends and when we come to Skegness again we will certainly use your company.
Charlie Parry - 35 Poplars - Sept 2012

Hi Jo

Have just spent a short break at Butlins in 'Sandhills 105' and wanted to pass on my thanks regarding the van and how well everything was arranged for our stay. The van is lovely and we found ourselves quite happy to enjoy the comfort rather than rush out in the mornings. Really feels more homely than a caravan and it is immaculate. We also found the van to be very well stocked with everything we could have possibly wanted. Will defiantly look to you again when we return and will recommend.

Thanks so much, Mr P Rushton - 105 Sandhills - July 2012

Hi Jo, Just to thank you for your help and for letting us have the best caravan we have EVER stopped in, the van was superb and there was everything you need and then some, every need had been catered for, we have told everyone since our return on the 6th July 2012 about your help and your marvellous caravan, I for one could quite happily live in it. Hoping to stay with you again and this time will not need to fill cases with such things as sewing & first aid kits, hairdryers etc.
Thanks once again, Rosemary, Gordon & Hazel Richardson - 241 Sandhills - June  2012

Hi Jo,
Many thanks for letting us rent 40 Parkside, we had a wonderful holiday and the caravan is superb. Its in an excellent location and has everything you need, plus its spotlessly clean. I would not hesitate in recommending you and should we return to Butlins next summer will definately be in touch with you. Many thanks again.
Regards Sara and family - June 2012

Hi Joanne,
just wanted to let you know what a great time we had at Skegness Butlins.The caravan,39 Paddocks,was more than we could have expected.It was extremely clean.In fact it looked and felt brand new.The added extra of the pushchair and DVD players were very useful for our 3year son.
Thanks again.The Howton family- 39 Paddocks - June 2012

Hiya Jo

Hello Joanne,   
I would like to say a big thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful caravan (poplars 35) for our 90s reloaded break!  It is the newest and most luxurious van we have ever stayed in during our 5 year stint of adult breaks.
The van was so well equipped with everything we could need and in fantastic location right near the tunnel.
thankyou for providing us year after year with great vans

Thanks Carrie Merritt - March 18th 2012

Hi Joanne 
We have just got back from the 90’s reloaded weekend at Butlins, we stayed at 12 The Retreat, the caravan was absolutely stunning! Far enough away from all the drama of Butlins but still only a few minutes walk away from the tunnel. The caravan was absolutely spotless and had everything we required (even cleaning stuff, which I was surprised about!) I loved all the added extras like the ps2, singstar, dvds and cd’s. Basically the caravan was PERFECT! J Thank you so much for making my hen weekend extra special. x
Stacey Jackson 12th March 2012


Hi Joanne,

We have just arrived back today from 40 Parkside at Skegness.

We could not fault the caravan in any way it was the best we have
stayed in as it was like home from home .The 70,s weekend was excellent
and to watch all the people in fancy dress was brilliant.
Thankyou very much for the use of the caravan and if we come back to Butlins at Skegness in the future we will call you to see what availability you have in your caravans.
Barry and Lynn Woods. Nov 2011


hi thanks for letting myself wife and grandaughter stay in retreat 12 last week oct 14th we had a great time with plenty to do for ourselves and the little one the caravan was well positioned nice quite spot and was lovely and clean and had everything we required hope to go back sometime in the future and would not hesitate to use cjs again once again many thanks.


ken - 21st Oct 2011 


We have been to Butlins many times and have always stayed in butlins apartments but this time we decided to hire a caravan as there was 6 of us as it worked out a fraction of the cost.  We stayed in 40 Parkside, the caravan was beautiful, modern, clean  and was equipped with everything we needed including toys!  (the girls didn’t bother playing with any we took just the ones in the caravan!), the only thing we would have like the caravan to have was a veranda but only as we have young children.


We found the stay much more relaxed and enjoyed the holiday more than we ever had in the past, needless to say we will never be booking with butlins again and will definitely booking one of Jo’s caravans the next time we go.


Damon and Dawn (June 2011)

Hello Joanne,
Thank you so much for letting us use 39 The Paddocks (2nd Sept - 10th Sept) the caravan was lovely and in an ideal location.  We had a wonderful holiday, Butlins is a brilliant place for Children and Adults and the shows are fantastic.  The layout of the caravan worked really well and is one of the best we have stayed in, it works really well if there are 2 families as there is a large master bedroom and shower room at one end and another 2 bedrooms and shower room at the other end with the kitchen and living area in the middle. The veranda was nice to use for sitting outside in the day and evening and was also safe for our 3 year old!  Having a Washing Machine was also really useful and we used this on several occasions it was great being able to just pop outside and pop the washing in without having to wait around in a Launderette.  The additional items available such as highchair, pushchair etc were great and in good and clean condition.  We would reccommend this caravan and will hopefully be booking again in the future.
Many thanks - Susan & Mark Dobson and family, Stoke-on-Trent
i stayed at 3 paddocks for 20-27th august 2011 . just like to say thank you for an excellant hoilday . i would well recommend your holidays to others.

Darren, Joanne and Megan Truman - SEPT 5TH 2011.
hello Joanne,

I just wanted to personally thank you for providing my family with a great holiday. We have stayed at many holiday sites and myself and my family all agree that your caravan was the best equipped, modern, clean and perfectly positioned for visiting the Butlins complex. We could not have had better accommodation.

Thank you again for your quick response in resolving the small fridge problem and I look forward to contacting you in the new year to organise another holiday.

Many sincere thanks David, Lyn, Amanda, Clair & families - 13 Aug 2011 - 12 The Retreat

I would just like to say what a lovely Holiday we had in your caravan (40 Parkside) The presentation of the caravan was first class and a pleasure to stay in. Many Thanks.

Yvonne and Family - 13th Aug 2011 - 40 parkside
Hi, Joanne,
Just a quick note to say that we had a smashing time at Butlins Skegness last week.
Of all the caravans we've hired yours has the best lay out, it worked very well with all of us fitting into the available space. The equipment and appliances were more than adequate for our simple needs and everything was very clean.
The close location to the park was also just right, especially for the little ones.
We did have a problem with a lot of wasps being around and getting into the caravan however. There seemed to be a lot of insects around the area so was probably a general problem for the time of year.

Many thanks, John Leighton - Gloucester - 13th Aug 2011
Hi Joanne,
Would just like to say a big thankyou for letting us have 73 Dunes for the second year running, we thoroughly enjoyed it and if anyone would like to go i would recommend that they book with yourself as everything is there for you within the caravan. We hope to book again soon. Thanks again Joanne
Leah, Paul, Thomas and Harry - Darlington - 24th June 2011
Hi Joanne,
It was nice meeting up with you at Butlins Jo. Just a short note to say a big thanks for letting us rent your caravan '40 Parkside' the caravan was spotlessly clean, lovely, so very modern, and spacious, we couldn't have asked for anything better, and to be honest we couldn't find any faults, the weather turned out fantasic for the week we were there (May bank holiday). Looking forward to booking for next year!

Christine & Paul, in Liverpool  27th May 2011
Hi Joanne,
We would just like to say a big THANKYOU from all of us for a fantastic family holiday. The Caravan (12 The Retreat) was absolutely gorgeous,spacious and comfortable all round.... Look forward to seeing you again very soon!!!

Hi Joanne, 
I would just like to say a big thank you for what turned out to be a wonderful holiday. We stayed in 39 The Paddocks which was situated in a lovely location close enough to the centre of Butlins even with a pushchair (exactly as you described), it was very clean and there was everything we needed for a very comfortable stay, We will be definitely booking again and passing on your details to friends and family.
Kind Regards

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely caravan. When we walked in I suddenly thought "wow" and it smells really nice. I would reccomend this caravan to family and friends. From Carla's Daughter


Carla Farricker - Stockport - Sept 2010


Thanks for a lovely holiday, we booked the caravan for a weeks holiday in May 2010 with our 3 children and couldn't have been more pleased.

The Caravan was clean and tidy with everything you could possibly need, I really was overwhelmed by the amount of effort that Joanne had put in to make sure that who-ever rents her caravans has all the comforts you would normally have at home. The location of our caravan was perfet for the mains Butlins resort but still quiet enough for us to get a good nights rest. We have already booked to go back twice next year.

Thanks again for making our holiday as stress free as possible. Looking forward to next year!!

Hi Joanne
Just a quick email to say a hugh thank you.
Number 39 Paddocks was superb, very clean and tidy and close enough to the complex we all had an enjoyable holiday and didn't want to come home (first time on holiday we have ever wanted to stay longer) there was so much to do on site we could have stayed another week easily. We definately will rebook for next year. Thanks once again. Speak to you soon. Regards Andrea
Andrea McRobert - Lockerbie - 10th July 2010


Hi there Joanne,
I would like to say a very big thank you for a very good holiday. I must say this was one of the best caravans I have ever stayed in. My children were impressed with the games as there were lots to do I think that this is a holiday in which none of my family will forget. Very cheap due to the fact that all shows are included. To come all the way from Scotland i think this was a holiday well travelled. I shall be booking again with yourselves. As i FOUND THIS RESORT AND THIS SERVICE THE BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!!! p.s its great you dont have to bring prams and games cd's dvd's and all those sort of things as its all there. And security s excellent let your kids go and they will come back at feeding time. SECURITY IS AMAZING here.
Everything about this holiday made it the best. JOANNE had excellent contact before and during the holiday. A very honest and reliable lady, I know this as I overpaid and Joanne told me and even refunded it back to my account. Thanks Cathy


Catherine Masters - Clydebank - 26th June 2010

Claire king - Notts - 29th March 2010
Dear Joanne, I just had to write to tell you what a delightul holiday we had staying in your lovely caravan at skegness on the 15th August. Everything was just perfect (including the weather) The location of the Retreat is ideal for the children and the caravan was clean and well fitted out with everything. My grand children just loved it and never wanted to leave. The entertainment at butlins was superb, we could not have wished for a better holiday. I am sure we will be going again. Thankyou for your kind attention to detail, it all helped.
Mrs Hilary Kenehan - Bradford - 18th Sept 2009
We spent 4 nights in this lovely caravan (73 Dunes)we were very pleased with the accommodation and amazed at all the caravan contained, it was very very clean and modern, there were everything there that we could of possibly wanted right down to plasters, batteries etc!! we would definitely like to stay here again, it is not very far from the main Butlins activities.
I would like to praise Mrs Gravil for the way she keeps this van maintained and for all the contents that were available which most people wouldnt even think about...

Best regards, Joy, Paul Bonser
Just a little feed back from our 1st family holiday at butlins;
Well what can i say, from trying Haven to Park resorts sites this is far better caravan we have ever stayed in.On arrival it was emaculate,tidy and even smelt fresh, my wife even made a comment to how spik and span everthing was and she is obsessed with cleniness. Double glazzed and central heating, it was nice waking up to a warm, damp free caravan,as well as alarm system fitted for piece of mind when out and about!
There was toys/CD to keep my daughter occupied, a large lockable shed at rear for storage, and out side patio area with nice table and chairs to eat outside.
As well as how impressed i was with the caravan, the whole site in general was impressive very tidy, with people taking pride in thier caravans, and the CCTV coverage the whole site.
A BIG thankyou to joanne for a CRACKING HOLIDAY


Hi Joanne, I just wanted to let you know that myself and my family really enjoyed our holiday in your caravan at butlins when we went a few weeks ago, it was very clean, well presented, plenty to do 4 the children, DVDs, games, playstation and games etc. It has a lovely veranda, a very easy to use washing machine, I think it is a brilliant idea that you have a television in the bedroom as well as the front room. It was our first time in this caravan but we would definately rent it again. It was a very enjoyable holiday. I also know that if we experianced any problems which we never did, we feel you would have been more than happy to help, there is more i would say about our holiday but i would be here all night, it is a beautiful caravan, thank you debbie


Debbie Finlayson, Allenton, 12th June 2009


I have stayed in the 8 berth caravan based at Butlins in Skegness owned by Joanne Gravil on three occasions. On each occasion I have had a fantastic time and book for the following year to ensure that I will not be disappointed by staying in inferior accommodation. I was very surprised how spacious the caravan was, especially now with the additional veranda. The caravan could not be better placed for access to the facilities at Butlins being only a 'stones throw' away from all the facilities. I recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
Julie Shaw, Mansfield, 13th June 2009
The van was lovely and well equipt, in a great location. I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you.
Gina Foster, Granthem, 6th July 2009
Just a few comments about Caravan 73 situated on the Dunes part of Butlins Caravan Park.
Me and my partner and our four children have just returned after a weeks Holiday.
The first thing that strikes you on arrival is how close to Butlins the caravan actually is, it genuinly is a 2 minute walk to the tunnel to Butlins pavillion and the supermarket, you could throw the keys from the collection office and hit the caravan.
We found it brilliant after a night out making the short walk back past the Baby Rabbits "you'll see em" probably.
The Caravan itself is really nice and clean and comfy. It has a nice size TV, dvd, a decent little sterro, a flat screen in the double bedroom and a selection of everything you'll need.
Theres also a lovely veranda with lovely wooden seating and a bench, so you can sit and have a drink outsde in the evening "if you wish".
Also one final point the lady who's caravan number 73 belongs to was never anything but lovely and polite and she made us want to go on the holiday even more.
So to sum up, you wont find a better caravan or location on Butlins, unless your in a show caravan.
"Here's to next year"
Rachel Healy, Loughbrough, 13th July 2009
Just a quick note to say thanks. We had a brill time and your caravan had everything we could possibly want. Hope you keep in touch, we felt like we was at home. Thanks again, Tammy, Shane & gang.
Ps. We will be booking again.
Tammy Goodchild, Heanor, 14th July 2009
I would just like to say Thank you for the hire of your caravan, and the service you provided. We had a lovely time at 73 Dunes.
It was like home from home, the kids had a great time and there was plenty of room for all 7 of us in the van. We even had the luxury of the twins having a travel cot each, which fit in one of the bedrooms as well as the single bed. Everything we needed was in the van and the use of the washing machine was fantastic, taking 5 children on holiday produces lots of washing so this was a massive help.
I would definitely recommend the caravan. Many thanks, sue bailey
Sue Bailey, Rotherham, 12th August 2009
