Bathing Beauties at the Creek.

‘Bathing Beauties’ was launched to promote this lovely, almost forgotten, stretch of Lincolnshire coastline with an international competition for artists, architects and designers to ‘Re-imagine the Beach Hut for the 21st Century’. 240 incredible design structures from over 15 countries were submitted. Anderby Creek is home to 2 ‘Bathing Beauties’ – the Round and Round House and the Cloud Bar.

The Cloud Bar at Anderby Creek.

The UK’s first permanent cloud watching outpost, designed by Michael Trainor.  A unique larch, acrylic and concrete construction, featuring a cloud-spotting menu, specially designed cloud-viewing seating and self-operating parabolic cloud-mirrors to magic the sky down to the earth.
Recognised as the world’s first ‘Official Cloud Spotting Area’ by The Cloud Appreciation Society cloud-bar-anderby-creek-b

This small building was designed by Kingston and Weber of Soma Design and chosen in the Bathing Beauties competition because it’s ideal for bird-watching. Constructed from curved laminated plywood.  Positioned in the dunes 350m south of the beach entrance, up a narrow wooden boardwalk and steps.

Walkies! Lincolnshire dog-friendly beaches near Seaside Lodge.

Dog-friendly beaches in Lincolnshire

There are 2 dog-friendly beaches on the doorstep at Seaside Lodge. And, with 3 Blue Flag beaches nearby (Mablethorpe, Skegness and Sutton-on Sea), it’s no surprise that Lincolnshire’s sandy beaches are rated up there with the best in the world. Miles of sandy stretches edged by a shallow tide, make Lincolnshire’s beaches perfect for walking, birdwatching, picnicing, or just relaxing.
Anderby Creek Beach
The stunning, unspoilt beach is fully open to dogs  September-March (just clean up any dog doings!). During March-September, dogs are still allowed on the beach within a specific area.
Moggs Eye Beach
Just up the road (or beach), this beach is fully open to dogs all year round. It’s popular with dog walkers, as it’s never too busy.

If you’re interested in staying at Seaside Lodge, it’s worth noting that we’re happy to accept one small dog by arrangement.
