The Lake District is gorgeous, what about a city break? We are doing Munich in the school hols, 85 each easy jet flights and a hotel for 500 and thats for 5 nights. You could do Rome for the same price.

We've done Spain (malaga) at the end of the holidays quite cheaply. Play around with dates and flight times to get cheapest flights, and loads of accommodation on booking.com or similar.

We've also had a beautiful holiday in the Peak District in a caravan on Shaw Farm. Really enjoyed discovering the area, and fitted in a quick trip to Alton Towers with cheap tickets.

Car hire isnt cheap in menorca (juat under 200 as we dont have the smallest option) so this would just push you over 1k. Cala galdana is beautiful, we go there often. If you dont hire a car then 1k is possible, we would prefer flexibility for the extra 100.

Quidco has about 35 on tracked cashback for the above so that takes the edge off.
Sorry to hijack but I'm thinking of going to menorca this summer but haven't a clue about the place, would you recommend Cala galdana? Any all inclusive hotels you would recommend? Thanks

We went to Duinrell in The Netherlands last Easter and that was fab. Great little theme park and a waterpark on site, close to great beaches etc and then we went to Amsterdam for a few days too - a wonderful break, I'd highly recommend.

Friends have done some very reasonable holidays via Brittany Ferries, French caravan park style. We've done Haven sites in the UK a couple of times, we love WestQuay in mid Wales. Dutch or Belgian Center Parcs are good and much cheaper than UK equivalents.

Menorca is not really an all inclusive island (insofar as you fall over them on Ibiza and Majorca). Sure, you will find them at the busier areas) but it is muuuch quieter than the others. The big chains such as Sol will run full board but I cant recommend any all inclusives as we have never really looked for quality ones, nor felt the need for one. We have been going back for years and have stopped at a few places on the island. Cala Galdana has the best beach IMHO but very little night life outside the three main hotels, the town pretty much closes at 11pm which suits us perfectly. The sol hotel was excellent when we stopped last about 5 years ago, however it is eyewateringly expensive since they upgraded to a Melia. The audax was adult only and predominantly german, cala galdana hotel was always in the middle. Cala galdana gardena is a real gem, cheap but clean.

The main draw is the beach and gentle sloping sea. Plenty of sea life in the bay too, we snorkel with the girls and regularly see small rays, octopus and variety of fish.

Have a look around trip advisor for reviews, there will be very few bad ones.

As well of some of the good suggestions above, we found staying in youth hostels a surprisingly lovely family holiday (some great locations and beautiful properties), also driving to France and staying in a gite in Normandy or Brittany or somewhere near a beach.
