A detached holiday home in enclosed gardens. Four minutes walk from the promenade and the lovely beach. The village shop, hotel and golf course are all within walking distance making this house much sought after in a pretty seaside village.
Situated in the quiet village of Sandilands this is an idyllic location for a get away type of holiday. The larger village of Sutton on Sea is within walking distance and provides good old fashioned hospitality.
Upstairs the accommodation comprises a main double bedded room, second bedroom with 3 beds, third single bedroom, bathroom with shower and a separate toilet
The attractive lounge has an open fireplace, large refractory table, TV, video and CD player. There is a ground floor double bedroom with washbasin and a separate loo.The kitchen and pantry are well equipped. There is also a small glass fronted porch an ideal place for a pre dinner drink watching the sun go down.
I have been a regular visitor to Sandilands since the early 60's and my mother spent her summer holidays there as a child in the 20's! All our 4 children spent 6 weeks every year playing in the garden and on the beach based at Orchard Close. We are now hosting our 5 grandchildren who love the freedom that Sandilands provides and my husband and I love the peace and quiet that it offers and the golf.
Mrs Janet Dixon purchased this house in 1974
We bought this property when our 2nd child was born and have never regretted it. Given a choice I would always holiday at Sandilands we love it!
We love the location. Down a private road, near the beach and the front garden facing west perfect for those summer evenings. The garden is a good size and perfect for children to play in.
Although this was an incredibly lovely house to stay at. We enjoyed the distance to the beech which was greatly enjoyed. Disappointed though as states there is internet access which my partner needed as he works from home and need to access emails from customers and colleagues,but upon arrival and calling contacts provided we was told that this was an error and it has been highlighted previously and needs changing as its the hotel which has internet but couldnt justify going there to use it as often as required. He had to go out and purchase a wifi dongle which couldn't receive a signal which has caused him to lose custom this week. This is the only issue we had as we came home a day early due to his effort in rectifying the issues this has caused for him
My family and I have just come back from a super relaxing stay at the beautiful Orchard Close.
The house was well looked after and had brilliant facilities with absolutely everything we could have asked for. The banana loaf on arrival was such a lovely touch, and the house felt comfortable and cosy.
The location of the house was in quiet beautiful surroundings and only a stone throw away from the beach.
We are so happy we came across this house and wish we could've stayed longer. We will definitely be booking again. Thank you very much Janet.
We had a wonderful stay over the Easter holidays. We were really impressed with the size and the cleanliness of the house. The location is perfect, just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and a short drive to Mablethorpe. The homemade lemon drizzle cake on arrival was a very nice touch and went down very well! We will definitely be looking to book again. Highly recommended. Thank you!!
7th year on the bounce at Orchard Close and just enquired about year 8! We love it, it's the perfect spot for us, easy to get to the beach, very comfortable and clean. The Fat Seagull cafe round the corner does great breakfasts

Sandilands is an idyllic place for a holiday whether you want to lie on the beach, play golf on one of the many excellent courses in the area or just explore the Wolds and the Fens. Sutton on Sea is a mile walk along the promenade with the best fish and chips for miles around! There are a range of excellent small shops that provide everything you could want. There is also a children's playground, multi purpose activity area and paddling pool.
Mablethorpe and Skegness have good cinemas and live entertainment throughout the summer season. There are a variety of restaurants, pubs and hotels in Sutton on Sea as well as take away outlets. The Grange and Links in Sandilands does reasonably priced bar meals and has an excellent restaurant.The Fat Seagull, a bistro near the sea front serves excellent home made food beginning with coffee and carrying on through lunch time. It serves evening meals on Friday and Saturdays. Attached to The Fat Seagull is a small convenience store that sells the basics as well as sandwiches, soup, coffees and ice cream, they also have a selection of home cooked meats, pies etc to take away.
Meals are also available at the golf club. Other local golf clubs include Woodhall Spa, Kenwick Park, Skegness North Shore, Seacroft, Louth and Woodthorpe.
The market town of Louth is 30 minutes drive away and historic Lincoln 50 minutes.
Golf: Sandilands has its own 18 hole links course which provides excellent hospitality. The last week in July is a popular golf week with competitions to suit everybody.
The 2 courses at Skegness (Seacroft and North Shore) are within 30minutes. Further inland there are the two championship courses at Woodhall Spa both of which are worth a visit.
There are two very different courses in Louth ( 20 minutes). Kenwick Park is a lovely parkland course set in the grounds of an old country house,with an excellent club house and fabulous food. The Louth Golf Club has some challenging holes and is set on the outskirts of this popular market town.

Horse riding is available at the Black Cat equestrian centre on the outskirts of Sutton on Sea and there is the Radcliffe donkey sanctuary at Huttoft that is well worth a visit.
The circus comes to Mablethorpe for 6 weeks a year and there are the usual fairground rides at Mablethorpe and fantasy Island in Skegness.
If you are a keen birdwatcher or interested in nature a visit to the Nature reserve at Gibraltar Point is a must. The staff run activities for children during the holiday periods and are always on hand to answer questions whatever the time of the year.
The Seal Sanctuary at the north end of Mablethorpe is a great day out with or without children. Not only do they have seals that have been rescued from North Sea but they have a wide variety of other species from monkeys to peacocks. It is a must for my grandchildren every year.There is also a seal/wildlife attraction in Skegness.
