  • "Lovely property very clean throughout with good quality and very comfortable furnishings and equipment the layout is excellent and it feels very spacious."

    Just a couple of recommendations to consider the WiFi wasn't a strong signal and we appreciated having the use of the highchair would be great if a portable cot bed may be added in the future.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Samphire and I am sure we will return in the future.

    Hi Deborah, Thank you for your review which we appreciate! We are glad you enjoyed your holiday at Samphire and will look at supplying a travel cot for the future. Best wishes, David and Kelly Property Owner

  • "Informed beforehand no cot or highchair but a lovely new highchair appeared."

    Thanks. We all loved the beach themed house, beds very comfy, every where very clean, kitchen well equipped. Beach very close, beach cafe and ice cream shop with garden and swings, brilliant.We had a lovely peaceful stay.

    Hi Dawn, I’m so pleased you had a lovely time. We have had so many wonderful holidays at Samphire. Anderby Creek is such a special place. Kelly and David x Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, well laid out, everything within Samphire is faultless."

    It's comfortable and very clean. The only thing that let it down was the garden. The grass is patchy and overgrown in some areas. It lacks a bit of TLC. It would be have nice to have some comfortable seating for relaxing in the garden. The picnic table and metal chairs (which were meant for the front I think, but previous holidaymakers probably moved them) weren't comfortable enough to sit on if you wanted to sit for a while. There were two wooden chairs on the top garden, but they were absolutely covered in bird droppings. Although I can understand that it would be very difficult to keep on top of that. If the garden is tidied up a bit we would love to come back next year. We enjoyed walking Jack (the dog) on the beach, along the lane to the fields and along the path at the top of the sand dunes. We were very fortunate to have great weather all week. A quiet, relaxing and peaceful holiday. The owners did a fantastic job when they renovated Samphire.

    Hi June, Thanks for taking the time to leave this review, we really appreciate it! We are really happy you enjoyed your stay at Samphire. We are sorry you found the garden a little scruffy, we have now dealt with this and provided additional deck chairs for the garden which are stored in a new garden storage box, so hopefully will keep the plentiful bird life off them! We will also add two sun lounges for next season. Unfortunately the rabbits, badgers and birdlife are all part of being in the dunes, as is the sun which on a sandy lawn makes it difficult to keep the grass in great condition all summer. We will do our best though and will re seed again in October after the season has finished. we hope you choose to stay with us again. Best wishes, David and Kelly Property Owner

  • "Weather spoilt holiday, cold for June, property was fine, parking and drive to property was bad and garden needed a lot of care, cutting the grass would have helped."

    Part of the garden was very steep and could have done with a small gate so it could be shut of.

    Hi Sandra, Thanks for taking the time to leave this review which we really appreciate. We know the parking is tight its one of the challenges of staying in Anderby Creek, but we hope the location makes up for it! Noted your comments on the garden, have spent more time on this now and have also added more garden deck chairs. Will look into adding a gate for the upper garden in the closed season. Thanks again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely place."

    samphire was spotless. It had everything we needed for a great break. The rooms were well decorated and the kitchen area was well stocked with every utensil you need. It's a great location for anderby beach and within a short drive of chapel at Leonard's and mablethorpe. We wil definitely stay here again.

    An easy walk for a late night trip to watch the waves.

  • "Lovely place, cleaner than a lot of places I have stayed but I am so sorry I can't give a higher rating."

    Parking was virtually impossible for one car never mind 2. It took me lots of to-ing and fro-ing to get the car onto the blocked paving. The track in front is access to other properties so you can't overhang onto it. Cleanliness and comfort are extremely important, and whilst I am happy with how well the bungalow is kept, although someone elses clothes were left in a drawer, I have had no sleep. What is going on with the bed? When you feel the mattress it feels lovely, but when you get into bed there's a distinct ridge down the centre which means you are fighting not to roll to the edge of the bed all night long regardless of which side you sleep. At a petite 5' this shouldn't be happening. I spent nights awake and days dozing on the sofa, so my holiday was in fact not a holiday at all. Yes, I tried anothre double bed but that was on a slant too. I am leaving for my second part of my 'holiday' feeling absolutely shattered. Pros: Clean Cons: Bed, parking

    Hi Maria, Thanks for your review and I'm glad you found it very clean. I understand your comments about parking, it is a little tight and requires a little back and forth. Houses with parking spaces so close to the beach are at a very high premium in Anderby Creek, so we hope its a small price to pay for such a great location. I'm sorry you found the beds uncomfortable, they are all brand new so I'm really sorry they didn't suit you. Property Owner

  • "Lovely and light home from home which is really well located for the beach."

    Well equipped, clean and comfortable. Take heed of the parking advice as it is very tight for a larger vehicle (we have a Galaxy and managed with some maneuvering). Everywhere is dog friendly and the beaches are sandy, wide and there's an amazing feeling of space. Lots of wildlife to spot, too. Definitely recommend for a relaxed family holiday!

The property

Situated in Anderby Creek, near the quaint village of Chapel St Leonards in Lincolnshire, is this single-storey cottage, Samphire.

Paces away from the beach, whilst featuring bespoke, rustic furniture, nautical themed furnishings, a bright and spacious open-plan living space, an enclosed suntrap garden, and flexible sleeping arrangements, Samphire welcomes five guests and two well-behaved dogs, ideal for a seascape.

Enveloped by sand dunes, enjoy the private and secluded rear garden, pet-friendly and perfect for alfresco dining, before benefitting from a fully-equipped kitchen and living space, where you can dine, recount your daily plans and flick on your favourite series.

Three well-presented bedrooms are on offer, including a king-size with an en-suite shower room, a small double, and a twin, all with hanging facilities and within proximity to the main, sleek shower room.

Rejuvenate ahead of a day at the local beach, which has been voted as one of the top 10 beaches in the country, or perhaps before a cold beer or prosecco at the Beach Cafe or Poppas Bar, with a neighbouring convenience store to ease your stay.

Surrounding your new home-from-home, enjoy a relax upon Anderby Creek Beach, or perhaps a dip to wash off your sandy toes, a visit to Farmer Borwns Ice Cream Parlour for a sweet treat, or maybe hike to North Sea Observatory, overlooking the shoreline of Chapel Point.

Travelling towards Skegness, discover Natureland Seal Sanctuary, encounter a thrill-seeking day out at Skegness Pleasure Beach, home to an arcade, mini golf, and rollercoasters, or tour the local shoreline upon Eptons Donkey Rides.

A car journey away, to Mablethorpe, set up shop upon the resident beach, meet an array of meerkats, seals, and primates at The Seal Sanctuary Wildlife Centre, or grab your walking boots, and trek across the Sutton Branch Line Walkway, setting you up for a nature-filled day.

Be sure to venture over to the Lincolnshire Wolds for excellent walking and cycling opportunities, along with some of the best views in the area.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
