    We are off to the Lincoln show ground next weekend to the BMF show.. rather than trundle back home again only to return a few days later for the Motorhome show, we decided to stay up there and perhaps 'do' Skeggy

    But !
    Cannot find any info on any sites up there..
    ideally would like somewhere as close to the front as poss of course :BigGrin:

    However............

    If anyone has any other ideas where we should plot up for 3 days bring em on ! :thumb:

    Hiya Jim, did that ! LOL !
    The closest one seems to be the Winthorpe Avenue one but even that is almost 2 miles from the main Skeggy 'front'.. Bit of a step for a penny arcade and fish and chips ! ( By my own admission I am a lazy sod who does not do the 'walk' thing unless sore pushed ! :Blush:)

    Now for me that WOULD be spot on.. Sadly woman will insist on a shower block at the very least ( even though the shower in the van is huge and very well appointed )

    Chances are the bloody woman will also insist on a club house to frequest ( but I think she is gonna be out of luck LOL !!)

    Sutton on Sea - just down the road from Skeggy, is in our opinion a much nicer place. There again we like it quiet.

    This is a nice site - http://www.cherrytreesite.co.uk/

    Duly noted and sorted :)

    But !!

    No one has mentioned any alternative destinations that might be of interest within say, 50 miles of Lincoln ??

    Just checked on that Skeggy Sands site..
    As a non-Caravan club member it will cost me £23.50 a night !!!!! ( and no wish to become a member at the moment ... sorry )

    For what is a fairly basic site I think the words 'no bloody chance' spring to mind..
    For almost a £100 for four nights I might as well drive back home and return to Lincoln on Thursday !!

    Sooooooooooooo....... Any other options folks ?

    What - like Hull?

    Seriously there are a million and one campsites on the East Coast, John but afraid I can't actually recommend any (this is Jen not Pete) as I have only been there once or twice (well 3 times LOL)

    I liked Cromer when we went last year, though! Really interesting Lifeboat station, old fashioned pier, nice shops for me. Never spent my life shopping but pleasant to have some different ones to go in and look at for a change. We stayed at the CC site which is expensive but does at least have a clubhouse and a swimming pool LOL - but plenty of others! Good bus service all round the area which is helpful to all us card-holders.

    I sort of meant non coastal stuff T T.. Castles, museums .. that sort of thing.. but around the Lincoln area


    Be a bit pointless doing Cromer as we do somewhere on the Norfolk/Suffolk / Essex east coast every week we are not away ( It is, after all, only about an hour away ! :Smile: )

    Skeg

    Hi
    There is a nice wild camping spot a couple of hundred yards from skeg sands site and there is usually a van or two there most weekends in the season.
    There is also a cc cl 3 miles out of skeg at £3 a night but you'd need to take mh into skeg as its not on a bus route, but there is mh parking in Skeg at north parade carpark, I can get you coordinates for these if you decide to go down this route.
