Why Alison Jackson chose Anderby
I bought Antoinette after spending many happy years visiting nearby Wolla Bank and Moggs Eye to picnic and swim. I did a complete renovation, opening it out to let in the light, and painting the floorboards. I bought the land in front to make a garden and to make room for my antique living van and added a verandah to sit out in any weather.
What makes this cottage unique
Everyone covets the houses on the top of the dunes with sea views, but mine is tucked away in the shelter of the dell, away from the wind. A few steps up and I am on the beach. I can sit and watch the sunset or the rabbits hopping by. I have managed to find which plants they will not eat so they are welcome to chew the grass.
Had a fab stay at Anderby Creek. We had cold blustery days but lots of sunshine and clear night skies to watch the stars. Antoinette was a little home from home. A lovely cosy place to stay. The owner seems to have got everything right, all that you need for a relaxing beach holiday. Would definitely go again. It is an ideal place to stay for couples or small families and even pets are allowed to stay. Our German Shepherd really settled in. Many thanks again for a great stay.
Relaxing and peaceful, a perfect short stay break.
5 out of 5
A delightful property in a great location. We loved it here. Not an immaculately clean property, but one with so much charm and character that any faults were soon overlooked (the bathroom, to be fair, did not look inviting, but even with the multitude of cleaning materials to hand, we could do no better !). We had such a relaxing time, and even the children managed without TV and Wifi, buying body boards from the local cafe/shop and enjoying messing around in the sea. We would certainly like to come back again.
we had a fabulous holiday!The accomadation was lovely.It had everything we wanted from a holiday.Myself and my husband stayed in the romany van and had a really comfortable bed.Our children slept on the very large bedsette.There is also a bedroom which was very cosy.The weather was not great,but within 5 minutes of putting the heating on it was so lovely and warm.The best part about it all was the fantastic location so close to the beautiful beach of Anderby Creek!Sitting on the veranda watching the sunset,happy memories...

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your holiday and I look forward to seeing you next year.
My son and I were both looking forward to our break away by the sea. The pictures on this website looked lovely but the reality was different. The house was very dirty and this spoilt my stay. The van in the garden was not suitable for use. The floor and surfaces were dirty and the bedlinen was grubby. There was a large yellow stain on the botttom sheet. The floors in the house were also dirty and appeared not to have been mopped for some time. I found what I think were mouse droppings on the kitchen floor. The crockery and cutlery were grimy. The bedlinen on the bed was fine but the bedlinen for the sofa bed was fusty and full of dead moths. The toilet was dreadful. Some blue loo cleaner had been squirted into the bowl but the toilet was covered with urine etc. and had not been cleaned properly. There was lots of dust and hairs all over the house. I was determined to make the best of it for my son and fortunately the weather was good and so we spent a lot of time on the beach. I felt more sad than angry as the place had obviously loved once but recently seemed quite neglected. There was even food in the kitchen cupboards with sell-by dates of 2011. On my return I contacted the owner who apologised and said she would have a word with the cleaner. However, I am posting this review because if someone had had this experience at somewhere I was thinking of staying, I would want to know. I certainly would not want to stay there again which is a shame as the location is excellent.

Owner's Response: I must state that this is still a much loved house, used by friends and family and let occasionally.
I cannot understand how the bedlinen in the sofabed was fusty and full of dead moths as it had recently been changed after the last guests days before. I was told this guest wouldn't be using the van so it had not been checked. I later realised there had been a leak in the roof which would account for the stain. This had now been rectified.
Being a hard water area, the loo may look stained and the old wooden floors look dirty, but they had been cleaned.
The present guests are more than happy and want to book again for next year.
We had an excellent week in Anderby Creek, the weather was great most days and even when it was windy on the beach the garden and swing seat on the veranda were sheltered and warm. The beach house has everything you need for a family break, we have two small children and the opportunity to spend all day on the beach but be able to nip back for snacks was brilliant. The open fire was also lovely in the evenings. We went to the cafe which is a few doors down for lunch one day and stocked up on a few supplies at the shop. The surfing was good at Anderby and also down the road at Sutton on Sea.
Situated in a coastal nature reserve with bird hide and cloud observatory. Quiet beach with sand dunes a few steps away. Shops a 15 min drive but basics available at the Beach Cafe. The bright lights of Skegness and Mablethorpe within easy reach.
