  11. HI I dont know if this will help, but when our boys were this age we used eurocamp sites (mobile homes) we found these to be good value for money,the boys had loads to do and they were well looked after by the staff.The sites are in excellent locations and are easy to find,and clean and tidy. Hope this may be of some use!! Smudge
