Why stay here ...

Please note Sutton-On-Sea Club Site has re-opened following extensive refurbishment, book now to be one of the first to stay. Read all about the improvements in our Sutton-on-Sea refurb news article.

Open to the sun and fresh coastal air, Sutton-on-Sea Club Site is an ideal place for family holidays. With excellent facilities plus children's play equipment, and only three-quarters of a mile from a safe bathing beach, the caravan park promises never to disappoint.

Within easy reach of Sutton-on-Sea Club Site, the Prom at beautiful Sutton-on-Sea is traffic free, which makes it an ideal place for a leisurely stroll or cycle. The beach nearby is safe for bathing and the clean sand washed by each tide offers the perfect haven to relax and enjoy the summer sun. The site is located within walking distance of shops and places to eat. The caravan site also gives you convenient access to bowling and tennis facilities, a paddling pool and putting green. Further inland, the gracious city of Lincoln is well worth the visit - you can even earn your excellent lunch by walking up the famous hill to the Cathedral. To absorb the full flavour of the Lincolnshire Wolds villages, Alford, a pleasant market town with a working windmill and craft centre is not to be missed. For walkers, the County Council has produced a good set of walks leaflets, and if you're a birdwatcher, Gibraltar Point is superb.

Love this site

We love Sutton-on-Sea and we love the site. I have to admit that I thought I would see more of a change after it had been closed for so long. Don’t get me wrong, I have no complaints – new electricity posts must mean a safer environment and more modern washrooms are great – but I thought the landscaping may have been updated. The best bit about the new showers? The benches. It means there is plenty of room for your clothes without danger of them falling onto the floor. The site is great - it’s an easy walk to the prom and then a lovely walk into Sutton and Mablethorpe – just take a torch if it’s dark. Again, I think so much more could be done to promote the difference between the bins and so it is clear what can be recycled.

We'll Be Back !

This was our first visit to Sutton on Sea for more than 30 years, but it won't be that long before we return next time. The site is beautifully located in quiet countryside, offering excellent peace and quiet, whilst at the same time within walking distance of the beach and the amenities in the quiet town of Sutton on Sea. The site is very well looked after by the ever friendly wardens, and the recent refurbishment has been a great success as evidenced by the numbers on site during a lovely week in late September. The toilet and shower block is of the usual very high standard being set by the Club as it revamps our sites, and power, water and waste disposal are all in plentiful supply convenient to all pitches. Following refurbishment, pitches themselves are excellent in all regards, with easy access to all. One slight word of caution - chose your pitch carefully if sunshine is important to you. Some pitches, including the one we had, are in cool shade for the whole day at this time of year, so if you prefer sun and warmth, check before you choose and set up. Just two reservations to, reluctantly, highlight. On two separate occasions we had dogs off leads roaming around on to the pitch without owners in sight. How this happened is not for me to speculate, but it is not the first time we have had this on various sites recently. The Club has rules about this which most dog owners follow. However, as is often the case, the less courteous minority is in danger of creating difficulty for everyone else Second point is I'm afraid also with regard to dogs. This site does not have a dedicated dog walk, and from our pitch close to the exit, we saw many owners taking their dogs off-site for walking. Unfortunately, we were also treated to the sight of many dogs using the grassed area opposite, which houses 6 pitches, to relieve themselves. Whilst appreciating that owners cannot control exactly when their dog chooses to do this, such frequent use of that area in this way by dogs cannot be hygienic for those on those pitches, which might include children, and it does, I suspect, encourage other dogs to do likewise. I don't pretend to have the complete answer to this problem, but perhaps if dogs have to be taken off site for walking, owners might consider keeping them off grassed areas, especially near pitches, and keeping them on roadways until they reach the dog-walking area itself. Overall, however, this was a most enjoyable visit to Sutton on Sea, and I heartily recommend it. I know that we'll be back

shocked

As we were driving to this site we started to remember we had been here before, my wife flicked through our diary of sites we had stayed in but know Sutton on sea? Then it dawned on us as we saw a sign saying hawthorn farm my head dropped the last time we were here the book said never again. We had booked so in we went, the wardens were really pleasant and guided us to our pitch. The pitch was really good plenty of room for van awning and car, the toilets had been updated so was another plus, ( the last time we were here the toilet block was terrible.) This site is now a great site the wardens are superb and have a laugh and joke with everyone, sandy beaches within walking distance will definitely return. Mike and Linda

Family heaven.

We didn't have kids with us but would suggest this is a cracking site if you do. Beach with plenty of sand, good access points and plenty of non-commercialised space to set up no more than a mile away should be enough for them to let off steam. It wasn't bad for our energetic dog either! If I'm honest this wouldn't be our usual type of location as we are hill walkers normally and there certainly aren't any of those! Having said that, the area did have a number of short walks (3-6 miles) in the vicinity and we managed to find a few slopes when we ventured into the wolds. Our reasons for picking the location, part recuperation, part to cross the area off our "still to visit" list, in particular the Wolds and Lincoln. Both well worth a visit. If foodies like us then Louth also well worth a trip - excellent cheese shop and butchers. Having said that, the local butchers in Sutton also provided some excellent BBQ fare. We did have a slight issue with road noise as our pitches backed onto the access lane but this was execerbated by the timing with harvest gathering so numerous tractor and trailer units were thundering up and down. My last comment is not specific to this site unfortunately but is that repeat issue ref speeding on site. As I said this is an excellent site for kids and it was great to see so many out on bikes and scooters as well as on the play area ( real throwback to my own childhood caravan memories) yet still there were numerous examples of people exceeding 5mph. In fact there were very few who did. You can tell cos if you change out of 1st gear, you're going quicker than you should be. We even had one car speed round the alternate road near the Motorhome service point just so they could get round quicker, and that was near the main "kid drag" When are members going to start thinking of others and not themselves.
