“Good fun watching the kids rowing..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Had a day at Cleethorpes and on the way back to the car after been around the seafront most of the day decided to go on the rowing boats with my daughter and niece.The costs of hiring the boats vary on number of people per boat.We had a small rowing boat which costed around £6 for half an hour..we were assisted in and out of the rowing boats by members of staff and left to our own to navigate around the lakes and islands which are sanctuary to the lakes geese and ducks.
The rowing boats are of a good safe well maintaned standard despite all the use and abuse they receive from people who have no experience in rowing.My only concern was that the lake was filthy but reckon that's typical pond water.I look forward to going on the boats again as I couldn't stop laughing when the kids tried rowing together for the first time and ended up going in circles.It brought back happy memories as that was something that I did when I was their age. Good safe fun at a reasonable price.

“lovely scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

A lovely lake where you can feed the ducks or just sit and watch the world go by. The beach is 2 minutes walk away and there is a lovely clean paddling pool nearby

“Food with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Had tea & cakes here which were excellent, and could watch the ducks whilst eating.The Gallery is also worth a visit with work by local artists and crafters.

“A beautiful place to visit all year round.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We live 20 minutes away from this beautiful place and go there with our children a lot. It has everything you could ask for: boats to hire, a sandpit, a adding pool (summer months only), a reasonably priced cafe, a free art-gallery and lots of wildlife. All this for the price it ousts to park. It really is the loveliest place to spend a few hours with or without children.
