The Beautiful beaches of Lincolnshire – Cleethorpes to Anderby Creek

After leaving Fulbeck we found a wonderful little site in Austen Fen (which can only be described as a small settlement) near Louth.  Actually we were told about it by a fellow camper in Fulbeck.  And it was just perfect!

We stayed for 8 nights and only had company for 3 of those nights!  There was even a resident Barn Owl that Calv was privileged to see twice – although he wasn’t able to get any photos unfortunately.  I’m sure I heard it on the roof dragging it’s prey one night in the early hours!

On our 1st day here we popped up the coast to visit Cleethorpes.  We were pleasantly surprised, it wasn’t what we were expecting at all!  Sure it was a little old fashioned and tired in places, with lots of amusements and typical seaside resort attractions.  However, it is really well kept and has a nice feel about it.  The beach was lovely too with what seemed like miles of sand in sight 🙂 Again, not what we were expecting!

The following day we decided to visit some of the lesser known beaches of Lincolnshire, via the market town of Alford (which was a bit of a detour admittedly…)  Although we didn’t stop in Alford it looked to be a very pleasant place.  It has a working windmill that you can visit which, of course, includes a teashop.

From here the 1st beach we visited was Anderby Creek, just a little north of Chapel St Leonards.  What a find!  Continue reading “The Beautiful beaches of Lincolnshire – Cleethorpes to Anderby Creek”
