As we receive our winter fuel bills, for some of us, the cost of living crisis feels worse than ever - but there is hope in the form of frugal spending.

Now, one savvy mum has revealed how she managed to bag herself a bargain four-night Butlin's break for herself, her partner and her child for just £41.

To put the scale of the bargain into context, this means that the trip will be costing just £3.42 per person, per night.

As reported by the Mirror, Dawn Lewis booked the holiday at the Butlin's camp in Skegness, Lincolnshire and explained that had she paid full price, it would have cost £89 for one double and one twin room.

But she managed to more than halve this price - and it was all thanks to a January promotion.

Perfect if you're already feeling the January blues as the dust settles on the festive period.

At this point, it's worth noting that while Butlin's is not the Ritz, it's a great option for families and the parks are located in brilliant coastal locations throughout the UK.

Now, other parents have been sharing their Butlin's bargains as inspiration too.

One mum revealed: "I've got 30 January to 3 February this year for two adults and two toddlers, apartment for £41 booked last year."

A second parent, meanwhile, praised the quality of the accommodation on their recent budget Butlin's break.

"I went to Skegness in December for Christmas. We had a gold apartment with 6 of us," they revealed.

"It was immaculate. Cleaners knocked every day to see if we needed anything doing. Clean towels every day. That was £160 for 6 of us, Monday to Friday."

As revealed on Butlin's website, the January event promises an extra £30 off selected breaks, however, they must be booked before the 17th of this month.

If you're looking to make the most of the offer, it's best to aim to visit the holiday parks off-season, when the prices are generally even lower.

Butlin's currently has parks in Skegness, as mentioned, as well as Minehead and Bognor Regis.

At the time of writing, it is possible to book a 'Winter Showtime' break in Skegness from prices starting at just £42 - as long as you're willing to go in the relatively near future.

Butlin's are clearly still living up to their original aim from way back in 1936, when their founder, Billy Butlin, decided that he wanted to make seaside breaks accessible to everyone.
