    I'm looking for a coastal site anywhere from The Wash / Skegness / Mablethorpe / Cleethorpes area, with easy(ish) access to the sea. I'm interested in adults only sites as there are only the two of us and the dog. We are CC members but the sites they have in theese locations are unsuitable. Any suggestions?? (not rude ones please:ROFLMAO:)
    Cheers

    Not sure that a Starspirit qualifies as an RV?

    Whats the public transport like in this area, there's no mention on the web site.

    Just thinking about a daft week in May. Ive never really been around that area. Been right along the Norfolk Coast working but never around Skeggie and Cleethorpes etc.

    Depends what you want. Within a short drive of Cleethorpes you have The Lincolnshire Wolds and the Viking Walk

    http://www.northlincs.gov.uk/NorthLincs/Leisure/walks/TheVikingWay.htm

    Near by Immingham have strong links with The Pilgrim Fathers if history is your thing

    Cleethorpes itself has an old fashioned style seaside resort arcade and fantastic fish and chip shops that people queue for. There is a nice leisure complex with pool, sauna etc, a bowling alley, a cinema, and Thorpe Park. Thorpe Park itself has a campsite and is yards from the beach.

    and that is probably why:Sad: You never appreciate what is on your doorstep:Sad::Sad:

    Don't forget the nature reserves of Gibraltar Point, Donna Nook and Rimac,plus the miles and miles of beach and promenade walks or bike rides.

    Stayed on a site near to Boston last year, cant remember the name
    but very neat nice location near to the canal, has fishing lakes, easy
    bike rideing, bus near by, even had a little cafe / shop on site entrance.

    Sister lives in Boston:ROFLMAO:, and she put us onto it so didnt take a lot of
    notice about name, but it also has residential / holiday homes around the lakes
    should be easy find, on itranet:thumb:
