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.

No views but very close to sea front and prom

Not a great first impression, being adjacent to derelict Derbyshire Miners’ Welfare sanatorium and the site being full and the feeling of being cramped, and not at all spacious. The facilities are slightly dated, but appeared clean (although we were self-sufficient, and did not use). At night we were aware of far-away road traffic ‘hum’, but it wasn’t too bad. However, the fact the site is so very close to the sea front, and the flat prom, is its saving grace. If you’re content with no view, and being close to your neighbour, but to be just a very short stroll to the beach, this site is perfect. We will return for its location alone. Sadly, the stroll along the prom is ruined by anti-social doggy owners who do not pick up their beloved pet’s faeces. Disgusting! Also folk who could not care less about the environment, and just drop their empty beer/cider cans and plastic bottles and other litter. This is obviously not a reflection of the site. Also it’s not the site’s fault that some dogs are noisy or yappy and spoil the peace of the site.

excavations

I was informed that one of the entrances would be closed. What i wasn't told that it was closed due to major excavation work in process. The noise was terrible from morning until night. when i pitched i had stood in dog muck on our hard stand pitch that was only noticed after i had walked it though my motor home. I was on a fully serviced pitch and the gray waste drain was that disgusting i would not put my drain away piping into it.. no warden-security visible after 4.30pm when reception closes.the toilet facilities were spot on and also the lady in reception was very pleasant. I would only return because of the location and good cleanliness of the toilet and shower block. ( it was a pleasure to go home for some peace and quite)

Second Visit

Came back to this site for 2 days after being here just over three weeks ago and was very disappointed. There are two entrances to this site and as before we drove to the side gate as this is more convenient to gain access. On arriving at the gate at approx 1pm on a Friday we found it locked, we then had to turn around our motorhome and car in a very tight space and head for the main entrance approx half a mile away. As we were turning round a further two motorhomes were also heading for the same gate as there was no signage at the end of the road informing arriving guests that there would only be one entrance available, ( a simple sign would had stopped a lot of maneuvering for arriving guests - especially caravans}. On arriving at reception it was evident that considerable work was being carried out on an old building overlooking the pitches and work vans were blocking the area around the reception. After we arrived and most of Saturday noise of excavations etc rang out around the site. When we booked for these dates we should have been informed that this work would be ongoing and given the chance to cancel as it has not been the relaxing time we anticipated. We also noticed several units which in my (ex warden) experience looked decidedly unsafe and would wonder if reception had asked them for a copy of their habitation record to prove fitness. I was very glad these units were not next to mine for fire safety reasons. We will have to re evaluate as to whether we return here, as there seems to be no warden-security visible after 4.30pm when reception closes. Same really as the toilet block is first class.

So glad we stopped here

Stayed here in January in our motorhome for 2 nights. Great site with great facilities A previous review stated it was not motorhome friendly.....due to the motorhome service area. I had no.problem with this and our van is 7 mtrs long. The shower block is great as is the pitch size. The lady and the manager in reception were helpful happy and professional, they even printed off an email I needed,I just made a donation to the charity boxes. Having been a site warden myself it was a joy to stay here and we have booked again for February.
