  • "Wonderful property!"

    So well equipped and appointed. The welcome pack (and home made brownies) were appreciated so much. The location - a five minute stroll to the beautiful beach - was a bonus. Best holiday rental we have ever stayed in!

    We had a wonderful, relaxing time at The Waterbeach. Everything you could ask for and more. Just a five minute walk out the back gate to the promenade. Fabulous meals at The Beach Bar. Karen you thought of everything, truly a home from home. Welcome pack was great and the cake was delicious. Highly recommended. We will be back.

  • "The property was lovely, there was a welcome pack which was appreciated."

    The beach was very close, which my dog absolutely loved. Some nice walks available. The only downside for me as I dont drive there were no shops apart from a small supermarket by the caravan park. The walk to Mablethorpe was a tad too far, I did go there but got a taxi. However I would revisit. Linda

  • "Lovely property, good location."

    Facilities excellent. Garden is dog friendly but not dog secure. The only serious criticism is the seating in the lounge both sofas are well worn and uncomfortable. Would use again, overall a pleasant experience.

    Hi Robert, thanks for the feedback, sorry you found the sofas uncomfortable and we hope that didn't make your stay any less enjoyable. I will also investigate adding some wire mesh to the wrought iron gates to make the garden even more secure for tiny/small dogs. We have now added meshing to the gates. Thanks again Karen Property Owner

  • "Lovely bungalow in a great location for exploring the local area."

    Easy access to the beach, just through the rear gate. House warm and comfortable and super clean throughout. My only slight negatives for the house is the position of the TV in relation to the settees as this made it hard to watch in an evening and maybe blinds in the front bedrooms to enhance privacy? Overall a brilliant stay and would thoroughly recommend. Owner really friendly and welcoming and she even leaves you a home made lemon drizzle cake which was superb!! Thank you again

    Hi Jill, thanks for your feedback, sorry for the delayed response we have moved the furniture around to try and make the TV area more comfortable. Thanks again Karen Property Owner

The property

Waterbeach is a beautifully appointed, single-storey, detached cottage right by the beach in Trusthorpe, Lincolnshire.

With three bedrooms sleeping up to six guests, this dog-friendly dwelling offers a family of six an enclosed private garden, off-road parking for two cars, and a spacious living area with all the home comforts for your self-catering holiday.

Enter through the gate to the side entrance of the property, which is fully enclosed and safe for dogs and children.

Inside, a bright and open-plan living area awaits with a contemporary, seaside theme throughout with blue hues and thoughtful touches; you'll find a handmade hanging rail for coats, a welcome pack for you with extra beach towels, and one for your dogs!

Head straight to the kitchen area with plenty of storage, preparation space, and high-quality facilities to whip up your favourite dishes, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, and coffee maker.

There's plenty of space for all six to dine at the large table set under industrial-style lighting, whether that's a casual family dinner or celebrating a special occasion.

After dinner, load up the dishwasher and unwind in the light-filled sitting area with high ceilings and Skylights; two leather sofas, extra blankets, and a Smart TV with Xbox 360 ensure a relaxing afternoon for all.

Be sure to let the outside in on warmer days by opening the patio doors to your private, enclosed garden to while away the hours in the sun, whether that's snoozing in the sun loungers, preparing dinner on the barbecue, or playing with the dogs.

Back inside, you'll find three thoughtfully appointed bedrooms; a king-size with a sleek en-suite shower room, and two twins, each with storage space, pristine linen, and fluffy towels.

All bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with a bath and a spacious shower enclosure, ideal for freshening up under the rainfall shower head whilst your towel stays warm on the heated rail.

When it's time to explore, exit through the lockable garden gate and follow the path straight to Trusthorpe's beach, which is dog-friendly all year-round; the garden's hot and cold outdoor tap is perfect for rinsing off the dogs and sandy toes, before retiring inside.

Trusthorpe is also home to The Seacroft Bar for a classic British cuisine and a general store, with plenty of walks and cycling in the area, whilst Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea are both a stone's throw away for plenty to see and do.

Pack your buckets and spades for a day along Sutton on Sea beach, followed by dining at The Beach Bar, Ice Rock Café, or the UK's first net zero hotel, The Bacchus Hotel.

In Mablethorpe, you'll find another beach of golden sands with beach huts to hire, lovely strolls through Queens Park with a children's play area, free lido, and boating like, and a variety of animals at the Seal and wildlife sanctuary.

However, if you want to see creatures in their natural habitat, be sure to visit Donna Nook, home to a grey seal colony and where seals come to give birth around November/December time!

Lincolnshire Aquapark and Watersports Lake is a short drive away for a family-fun day out, or perhaps you'd prefer escaping to nature in the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB?

This scenic range of hills offer scenic walks for all abilities, with the market town of Louth, Alford, and the historic Horncastle both nearby and well-worth a day out.

Further south along the coast, you'll find plenty of unspoilt scenery, including Chapel St Leonards and North Sea Observatory, Ingoldmells Beach and Fantasy Island, and Anderby Creek, home to the world's first official 'cloud bar' to watch and learn about clouds.

More nearby attractions include the Sandilands nature reserve for spotting local wildlife, the National Trust's Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens, and the cathedral city of Lincoln.

For all this and more, secure an unforgettable family holiday by the sea at Waterbeach.
