Peppa Pig world Vs Cbeebies land

DS is nearly 2. He's still napping after lunch - 2 hours most days, so that leaves us with 09:00-11:00 and 15:00-17:00 for activities (rest of the time is lunch, bath tine etc)

Would absolutely.love to take him away for a few days except.money is tight so would need to budget and save. I was hoping in the future to take him somewhere toddler friendly that he'd enjoy. Like PP world maybe but very interested in suggestions for other places you think a high needs 2 year old would enjoy.

We'd need somewhere with a cheap hotel, like a premier Inn close by, or if there's a good deal, stay in location as we only have those 2 hour windows in-between his nap (he's not the type of.toddler who will nap in the go unfortunately)

Totally open to suggestions, need to keep costs down as low as.posible but apart from that, very flexible on dates and locations! Don't really have a budget, but we are a 1 low wage family so would save up.for it.

    I highly recommend Butlins just for tots breaks. You can get some really good and cheap deals, even though the booking maybe mon-fri you could always mix and match you duration (just maybe make a note on the booking if you are not arriving until the weds for example) So much for a little person to enjoy a friend took her little one who is additional needs and he absolutely loves it they go at least every other year now.

    On Butlins we went to Bognor with our kids, who have not just started school (ruling it out) but tots weeks were good. Can get them on Sun holidays (as in paper) for cheap. Accomodation basic but lots to do, kids loved teletubbies parties etc and can go on beach (stone) plus nice park just across the road if you want a break from Butlins. Perfect for them.

    Peppa Pig world, both kids loved and went from age 2. Ours are quite mobile and energetic (no naps), so a bit full on the go to be getting on the rides, but going out of season means park is relatively quiet and I think free for kids under 1m.

    Cbeebies we've done an overnight mid-week stay out of season to make it cheaper. Pirate room which again they loved and meet and greet of characters (more than Peppa, and slightly more than Butlins) - Bing, Postman Pat etc. Water park is nice and craxy golf although maybe slightly small.

    Thomas land at Drayton Manor could work as cheaper and probably slightly less of an experience of the other three.

    All good so it depends on your location and cost. Week break I'd go Butlins, overnight trip for the other ones. Bluestone park in Wales is also a centre parcs style alternative but a bit more expensive but again cater very well for tots with a lot of activities thrown in for them.

    Not sure I've narrowed it down but you can consider based on costs. My girls loved all of them so I don't think you can go too wrong.
