Anderby Creek

Sounds like a book by Daphne du Maurier, doesn't it? Something involving smugglers, caves, coves and Cornishmen. But it isn't. It's a lovely beach in Lincolnshire, just a few miles north of Skeggy but a million miles away from tacky. Telling somebody about our day trip there last Saturday, I was amazed to hear them say they'd never heard of Anderby Creek before. Perhaps I should've kept it that way. But no. I like to share. So if you're a fan of unspoilt beaches, free car parking, miles of sand and a day at the seaside, Anderby Creek is for you.

Quite possibly my dream home. Which one? Any of 'em...

Where to, guv?

It's a long way to the sea daddy

Time for un petit rosé...

... and a spot of lunch. 

And if the beach should pall after a while, you can always go to the Anderby Creek Cloud Bar, the Cloud Appreciation Society's (no, I didn't know there was such a thing either) official cloud observation platform. 

The only trouble is, on a day like last Saturday, there are hardly any clouds to see!

Anderby Creek is one of my suggestions for the Ready for Ten Skillscape project - a map of the UK's best places for kids to play. If you've got a place to add, go to the Skillscape suggestions page and add it to the ever-growing list. There are hundreds of suggestions already, and by entering yours you could win a family holiday!
