Things to do (leisurely)

One of the nicest things about Anderby Creek is the tranquility. Just relaxing – watching the sea, the clouds, the lake. However, if you want to get out and about, there are plenty of things to do.

I’ll update this section regularly with links and info on places to eat, walks, activities and events.

Walks around Anderby Creek

There are 3 great walks to view and download here. Many thanks to Lincolnshire County Council for the maps which I’ve taken the liberty of sharing on the links below.

Cloud watching in Anderby Creek

Anderby Creek's Cloud Bar opened in 2009

In 2009  Anderby Creek became home to the world’s first Official Cloudspotting Area. The Cloud Bar is a wooden building and upstairs features cloud spotting menus, cloud viewing seating and self-operating cloud-mirrors to help appreciate the variety of clouds in the wide coastal skies.

Founder of The Cloud Appreciation Society, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, says: “The Cloud Bar is an inspired way to remind the public that some of nature’s most varied and beautiful displays take place daily above our heads”. We couldn’t put it better ourselves.

There's a Cloud Menu on the viewing deck and a wonderful view of both the sky and the North Sea

Wildlife Watching – birds and more

The Round and Round House is a Lincolnshire ‘Bathing Beauty’ – a Beach Hut for the 21st century. Just a short walk down the beach from Cloud Bar, it gives 360º views over the beach, dunes and inland pools at Anderby Creek, and it’s perfect for wildlife watching. Positioned on an East Lindsay coastal dune system, in a highly important area for spring and autumn migratory birds.

Look east for seabirds (gannets, gulls and kittiwakes), and possibly seals and porpoises at the right time of year. Look west for the birds which call the dunes and coastal marshes their home.
