We stayed at the beautiful 14 Osprey Rise last week. Beautiful lodge. So well looked after. We really felt at home. Fishing lake was amazing! Loved waking up to that view every morning! We did NOT want to come home. Thankyou to Joanne and Rob for such a stress free booking system. Can’t wait to return next year 🥰 Xx

Lovely lodge in a great location but make sure you take photos of EVERYTHING!! After still not receiving our deposit back after a month and emailing to ask what was happening I decided to contact the host via WhatsApp who informed me that our deposit had been withheld due to ‘damages’. He then proceeded to send 2 photos - one was a piece of plastic that had chipped off the bottom of the patio door then levitated across the room defying the laws of physics and a cracked fridge drawer which we had taken a photo off when we arrived (been stung before).. even still.. must be make from that posh plastic for £125 🙄 Book through Away Resorts and don’t bother trying to book privately as they’re con artists!

Hi, we are currently on our way home from a fantastic week in Tattershall lakes in the beautiful lodge at 10 osprey rise. It was lovely and clean, had everything we needed and we sure did make use of the hot tub. My daughter loved it. We took our dog on his first holiday and he loved being able to sit out on the balcony being nosey. We are looking at going back next year. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay

Just returned from a weekend at 6 Kingfisher Court in Tattershall lakes . The caravan was lovely and spacious and bright and fully equipped including a fabulous hot tub. Everything well maintained and location was not too far from the main complex. The owners were very friendly and more than helpful from initial booking to arrival. I would definitely return and highly recommend Thanks again

Just back from a fabulous week at Tattershall lakes staying at 9 Misty bay. The lodge was amazing by far the best we have stayed in it was extremely clean and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the deck with brilliant views across the lake and as we were blessed with really good weather it was ideal for relaxing in the sun. We would definitely recommend and hope to stay again in the future. Thanks to Rob and Joanne for all your help with booking and passes etc.

A really lovely clean caravan where we spent a last minute break away. Everything you needed was there and more. Would definitely recommend to book through CJs as they clearly take pride in their accommodations. I’m usually one who cleans before I use anything but didn’t feel the need here as it was spotless. Thanks for a lovely relaxing stay.

Excellent stay in a beautiful place. The place is spotless and has everything you could need! We had one with a fishing peg I highly recommend. When booking asking questions ect they have super helpful and very covid safe! The deposits was also returned the same day. Fantastic over all

We had a wonderful stay in The Poplars at Skegness. The caravan is beautiful, spotlessly clean and the owners were very accommodating in regards to my disabled daughters needs. We're looking forward to staying at the Tattershall Lakes lodge in March next year. 5/5.
October 11, 2020
We stayed Mon-Fri at 40 kingfisher - WOW! What a lodge! Very spacious in all rooms, the hot tub made the week really, we didn’t go very far due to the current situation, so this was used quite a lot of the time. We normally bring everything from our kitchen, but it had everything, plus more. Thank you so so much for letting us stay in your lodge 😊 we made sure we had a tidy/hoover before we left also. The only slight downside was that we couldn’t get our towels dry fast enough before going in the hot tub/shower 😂 Lovely place, can’t wait to book again 😊
September 20, 2020
Just got back from staying at 17 Osprey and wow. This is the best we have ever stayed in. Plenty of room. Master Bedroom and 1 single room are huge. Hot tub is amazing and private fishing peg (although caught nothing lol) Great location to watch the jets fly over to. Will definitely stay again but for longer.
September 18, 2020
Just back from a weekend away at 40 Kingfisher. Cannot recommend enough! this was our 4th stay at Tattershall but first time with CJ holidays. Easy booking, Excellent location, fully equiped lodge and excellent service from Joanne - many thanks and we have just booked for next year 🙂
September 17, 2020
We hired two vans for four nights at the end of August 2020. The vans were beautifully kept and clean on arrival. We will definitely return and hopefully be able to use Butlins facilities next time if Covid ever goes away. We still had a lovely time and would like to thank Joanne and her team for accepting our late booking.
September 7, 2020
We've just got back from an amazing few days at 6 osprey rise. It's a beautiful caravan with lovely finishing touches. Very spacious with plenty of room for 2 adults and 4 children. Great communication and quick responses from the owner. Hopefully we'll be booking again 😀

Guest Reviews from the Past
BUTLINS 50 DUNES – October 2021
Hi Joanne, Our stay at Dunes this year was absolutely great… the caravan was stunning, extremely neat, so much homely, had all the basics that is needed for a hassle free stay, and was so convenient for walk to Butlins… The stay made our Butlins holiday a very memorable one… the stay was enjoyable as much as Butlins itself… Would love to be back 😊 Thank you, Vijendra.
BUTLINS 2 POPLARS – July 2021
“Hi Joanne, I hope you are well. We just wanted to say thank you so much for an amazing holiday. Your caravan is immaculate & felt very comfortable (home from home). You made booking with you a pleasure & smooth. We would definitely recommend you to family & friends.
Take care. Kay. Xx
BUTLINS 40 POPLARS – JUNE 2021
“Just back from a lovely 2021 May Half Term week in 40 Poplars. Prepared to its usual high standards, all of CJ’s vans are lovely, (we particularly love 36 Poplars,) and the ones on Poplars or Dunes are a 5 minute walk to the Skyline. Ideal with 2 excited (or tired, on the evenings) Children! We would heartily recommend Joanne and CJ’s Holidays for your Skegness Butlins Holiday.” Nick Walker and Family x
40 KINGFISHER COURT, OUR LODGE AT TATTERSHALL LAKES COUNTRY PARK
What a great last minute find! What was a very last minute booking we were extremely fortunate that the lodge was available for this period. Even though the weather was cold the lodge was extremely cosy and inviting, it was a home away from home. It was fantastic that the beds were already made up, a number of places that we have used previously you have to make the beds up on arrival. The lodge has everything that you need from all the white goods to the kitchen utensils and equipment. It would be fantastic for a seasonal break, it you wanted to cook Christmas Dinner in the Lodge or even if you wanted to book Christmas Dinner at the onsite facilities that Tattershall Lakes has. And just for your added relaxation and pleasure, there is the lovely hot tub on the large wrap around decking (we even saw the hot tub man come round to check on the water quality). An added bonus was Tattershall Castle, all lit up and decorated for Christmas, if you are a National Trust member it was free to enter, but you need to book in advance. A lovely village not far away was Woodhall Spa, lots of really nice independent shops. We would also recommend the local fish and chip shop in Tattershall – Something Fishy – portions we very generous and really reasonably priced. P.s. Tina our old Labrador, loved the lodge and her daily walks around the site, have to say 40 Kingfisher Court, although not directly on one of the lakes in our opinion is in one of the best locations.
We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.
Kind Regards – Tracy – Dec 2018
40 Kingfisher Court
We have just returned from our weekend away in paddocks 13 and wanted you to know we’ve had a lovely time. The caravan was warm, welcoming and had everything we needed. We had looked at the photos when booking so knew what to expect but it was even better than anticipated. We will most likely book again next year, as the children want to go away every October half term.
Lisa – 13 Paddocks – Oct 2018
Thank you again for such a amazing caravan, we stayed in 47 dunes and it was absolutely amazing,not only was it spotlessly clean it was ideally situated just a few mins walk to the main centre. It was our second year with you and we seriously can not wait till next year. Thank you again we had the best holiday xxxx
Laura Holford – 47 Dunes – July 2018
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 – 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 – – 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 – 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 – June 2017
Hello. 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 – June 2017
Guest Reviews Pre 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 – Oct 2016

Hi thank you for providing us with a beautiful caravan. 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 – July 2016
Hi Joanne. First timers on the Caravan side of Butlins.
Always stopped on main 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 Thank You
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
Hi, 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 – 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 – 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 – April 2016
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

Laura Smith – 153 Sandhills – June 2015
Hi Jo i just wanted to say thank you, we have just had a fantastic holiday, it is the best caravan we have ever stayed in extremely clean (which is a big thing for me) everything we needed & so close for us to walk to everything but still quiet & relaxing, we loved it in Butlins (out 1st stay) & we will defiantly be booking again especially 47 Dunes smile emoticon xx
Julie Murphy – June 2015
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
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
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
