ERA - Vintage Beach Chalet (on Historic Assets List) WiFi Sleeps 4 Adults.

Chalet -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, England

We greet all guests in person.

My chalet is an original early Humberston Fitties beach chalet, sensitively restored and maintained since October 2016. Built between 1914 and 1922 right on the seafront at Humberston Fitties, the chalet was placed on the Historic Assets List in 2016 (one of six out of 320 chalets on the site).

Humberston Fitties itself is a Conservation Area and 'Era' has been carefully restored in keeping with her vintage style and has featured in many magazine and newspaper articles, on TV and in photo shoots due to both her great location and unique style with genuine vintage interior.

We have been hosting guests holidays since 2017 and welcome people who have a passion for true vintage and an appreciation of both its delicacy an...

Interaction with guests
We will spend around 15 minutes showing you where things are, reading the electricity meter with you as well as answering any questions you might have. Then we'll heave-ho and leave you to start your holiday. We are less than an hour away at all times. In addition both neighbours and friends who lives on the Fitties are available in emergencies. The neighbours either side are retired, quiet folk but are very helpful about local amenities and enjoy a chat. In other words this is not a chalet for loud parties, more for peace and quiet and walks on the beach and a few drinkies and even a bit of tobacco smoke, just remember to vent the rooms and we are all happy :o) Chill out. No dogs or smoking in the bedrooms.

About the neighbourhood
'Fitties' is a local word meaning salt-marsh. People first came to Humberston Fitties in the early 1900's for the wonderful air and the quality of the light. Electric lighting was installed only in the 1990's, also during that decade the whole area was made into a Conservation Area to preserve the unique features and styles. Just to the south is Donna Nook - a nature sanctuary for migrating birds and seals.

Cleethorpes beach is famous for kite-surfing as the conditions are so good. It is also on the Top Ten Beaches list.

From the beach you can see Haile Sand and Bull Forts. These were built in WW1 and an anti-submarine net stretched between them. Several of the older chalets (including Era) were used for billeting troops during both wars.
Getting around
Ample parking for three cars at the rear of the chalet down 3rd Avenue.

There is a launderette and small shop within walking distance on the Thorpe Park site. All amenities are available in Cleethorpes which is 2 miles away.

There are plenty of pubs and shops in Humberston Village within walking distance and a Tesco Extra approx 3 miles away in Humberston, who can of course also deliver.

There is a file with take-away and restaurant menus in the chalet.
