Chapel (as it's locally known ) is nice. Donna Nook is nearby, and has the most wonderful seal sanctuary.

At least you most likely wouldn't hear abusive language.

The locals seemed to manage abusive language, as long as it was no more than two syllables.

Seriously though, I have never experienced a more depressing dump. The whole area is economically depressed and uninteresting. Donna Nook is worth a look, but I fail to see how anyone can consider it worth spending time there, including Chapel.

Don't get me wrong. I certainly don't represent the Lincolnshire Tourist Board when it comes to Skeg, despite living 40 miles from it. It was the use of the expletive which I responded to.

We love Skeggy,less than 2 hours away,it's been our local seaside resort ever since we were kids,I suppose we have an affinity to it.

Lots to do for all age groups,but especially suited for families with young children.

Not recommended for people that enjoy peace and quiet,although there are some more tranquil parts,Gibraltar Point nature reserve is worth a visit.Good job we're all different and prefer other sites,otherwise it might be a bit of a crush on the same site

I think there might be a site at Uphill in Weston that might over look the sea but not sure what its called or if its open this time of year sorry.
There is a cc cl Gorselands Roman Road Bleadon Hill Weston super mare 01934 813234. this is up on the hill and if I remember right I think you could just see the sea from it if you looked over the far wall and the views across the fields were nice as well. We spent 16 years in Weston and i'm almost sure that there is nothing overlooking the sea. Same goes for Skegness I think.

Hi Karl,

as far as I know the only site in Skeg that overlooks the sea is Skegness Sands(Caravan Club).Not all of the pitches have a sea view,only the ones on the upper tier which have to be pre-booked.

You get a key for the security gate which leads directly on to the sea front,only problem is they are all grass pitches on the upper tier,so if it's wet you are better off going on the hardstandings which haven't got a sea view.

Steve

cheers Steve
