We’ve just returned from a long weekend away with our folding camper at a Temporary Holiday Site in Mablethorpe. If you are interested in why we choose this particular cost-effective way of camping, then please read this blog post.
This was our second stay at the THS at the school, we came here for a few days two years ago. The reason we returned was the location – 5 minutes from the seafront and beach, 5 minutes from Queen’s Park and 10 minutes from the town centre, with shops, eating options and entertainment.
The THS was hosted by South Lincs District Association, who celebrated their 50th anniversary this year.
The THS is based on the field at the rear of the school, and the school itself is in a residential area. There are toilets and showers available during daylight hours, so you will need your own loo for the night. There wasn’t always loo roll available in the toilets, but there was a clear “Bring Your Own” sign. There are water taps and an Elsan disposal point available for use.
The field itself is flat, and there was plenty of room. I rang ahead but there was no need – the field was far from full, even though there were a lot of units there. We asked if we could be in the spot where we were two years ago, kind of in a corner. This meant that we were able to put up the folding camper, porch awning, toilet tent and event shelter. This made us a good sized area to sit out and eat outside, as the weather was lovely.
My only criticism was the rooster, that cockadoodled from dawn intermittently! I presume he lives in one of the houses, he’s an early riser though!
Unfortunately, the school closed in July, and will not be reopening in September. This means that this will probably be the last THS held at this site. This particular meet runs until the 30th August.
