Why stay here ...

Skegness Sands has all the makings of a classic bucket-and-spade summer holiday. The caravan park boasts private access to the popular promenade plus easy access to both the beach and centre of Skegness (fondly called 'Skeggy' by the locals). Only 2 miles away, the town offers a wide range of restaurants, pubs and shopping treats.

An added bonus of Skegness Sands is that it forms part of a larger complex, which includes a pool, children's play area and toilet block fully refurbished in 2014. If you want to stock up on conveniences without any fuss, the caravan site puts you within easy walking distance from a local supermarket. A traditionally popular seaside resort in the summer, Skegness offers loads of fun outdoor activities such as golf courses, bowling greens, boating lakes, amusement parks and ornamental gardens. The famous Illuminations are another attraction not to be missed.

short break at Skegness.

We chose this site for a short break of 5 days with our granddaughter before she starts school this year and to use our bikes along the promenade to the nearby resorts and primarily for the beach location. We stayed on a super pitch the last week of August. As others have commented, the touring section is a small part of a much larger residential/holiday complex of which the grounds and facilities are spotless. Each day employees were tending the gardens, sweeping or general maintaining the area to a very high level. Pitches are a little regimented in as much as it resembles a car park for the hard standing area's but they are very big pitches arranged in a way you are not looking into your opposite neighbours van. The site is well signposted, but the arrival section could be a bit of an issue at peak times due to the siting of the reception building. The reception handled our booking well, but they could of been a little more welcoming. The area is inundated with 'do and don't' notices and your pitch is chosen for you. The rules are replicated throughout the site and on your booking confirmation. We've no issue rules, but it would be good if they enforced them. For example - other campers using the grounds to exercise their dogs, when it clearly states they should be taken off site. Some grass pitches ruined due to groundsheets, despite notices saying they should not be used. And allowing commercial vehicles to pitch. All of which we saw during the five days. In our opinion, either enforce the rules for all, or delete them. The positioning next to the beach is ideal if you like it and the sea is shallow for a great distance. A little disappointed with the extent of the promenade as it is impossible to ride into Skegness or Mablethorpe due to the promenade either blocked off or non existent. But its good for a mile or so. Expected it to be rowdy, but it is a very quiet site - not likely to return.

Water is not for drinking!

We have stayed at this site many times and in most ways it is our favourites,. However the water from the tap is disgusting and has a strong taste of TCP. Boiling it does not help. If you going to stay here buy drinking water from the nearby shop.

Wont be back not aimed for families

The site as a whole was clean and tidy but more of a car park than a caravan site, think that was because it had so many don'ts instead of do's. My children were given into trouble for cycling from security, and when I went to see what exactly they had done wrong they were nowhere to be seen!!! Had an incident with some of the children playing around the facilities and when I looked at the info I was given to call the warden, (Security) I ended up at the Static reception for the number. Once I got the number, it just rang out!!! Went into the reception a number of times to complain but every time I went in the receptionist was on the phone and not once did the look up to acknowledge me, fail in customer service!! The swimming pool worked out at £17 for a family of 5 and if I was to go every day it would have worked out at £238 for the 14 days, they did not have a leisure pass as most other places offer and to be honest the pool was just that a pool. But the static members all had passes!!! Not a family site what so ever. On departure of my stay the receptionist didn't ask me or the 2 other families that were staying how or stay was, I had to say to her, are they afraid of feed back? The only benefit this site had was the access to the beach.
