About Mrs Janet Dixon

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

Why Mrs Janet Dixon chose Sutton on Sea

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

The perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th stay at Orchard Close and as soon as we arrive we feel as though we are on holiday. The house is always in a very clean condition and the kitchen is well-equipped. It's in a lovely location, close to the beach and the house has everything we need. This year we were joined by our 3 year old granddaughter and our youngest daughter for an overnight stay. There was plenty of room for 4 adults, one child and a dog. We love the close proximity to the beach and found everyone we met to be really friendly. The beach hut is fantastic and we spent many happy hours down on the almost deserted beach. Thanks Janet for another wonderful holiday, especially after such a stressful family time. Hoping to book again for 2018.

excellent perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay suited us very well we were carp fishing around the lakes in the Lincolnshire wolds. the cake was amazing and a lovely suprise, accommodation was spacious with lots of parking and easy access to all the carp lakes and the beach, lots of shops and supermarkets in Sandiland and Sutton on sea and Mablethorpe, the house was very clean and tidy. we really enjoyed our stay and will book again for next year, it was very quite and the birds loved there daily feed, the listing description was very accurate and the property was well managed, all though we were there purely for the fishing the house made a great base, thanks Janet

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and found the local shops covered your needs . A fishing trip adds another dimension to the activities that are on offer in the Lincolnshire Wolds, along with the beach, walking, cycling and golf to name but a few. Thank you for leaving the house so tidy and for taking the trouble to give me some feedback. I hope that we will welcome you all back next year.

Highly recommend

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7, 5 adults & 2 children & our Dalmatian dog stayed for 4 nights. The garden was perfect for the safety & security of our dog & young grandson the whole perimeter was secure with loads of space for them both to run & play allowing us all to relax & enjoy the sunshine.

The small private road leading off the village road ensured that the only noise we heard was the sound of bird song. The inside of the property is exactly as described as are all amenities, well maintained almost everything you would expect in a family home much more than the average holiday home, the only addition I might suggest would be a garden table & a couple of sun loungers to compliment the garden chairs. All rooms are of a generous proportion & the house is only a short easy walk less than 10 minutes for our elderly mother to the lovely sandy beach. This is the perfect location for anyone who wants peace & quiet to run their dog play with their children with no expense for parking or other costs. Only 5 minutes drive to Mablethorpe or 20 minutes to Skegness when you want to spend those holiday pounds.

The owner was easily contactable prior to & when making the booking. We would all recommend this property to our family & friends.

Nice holiday stay but slightly disappointed

  • 3 of 5

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

Owner's Response: I am sorry that my client was disappointed that there was no internet in the house. I do not advertise w fi but do state that it is available at the Grange and Links hotel 2 minutes walk away. You could have had 4 main courses or 15 coffees for the price of the dongle! I have only had 2 clients that have had problems because of the lack of w fi in the house in 15 years of letting. I firmly believe that a holiday should be just that, time away from the stresses of busy lives. Orchard Close and Sandilands provide just that; peace and quiet and a truly relaxing break allowing you to recharge your batteries.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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.

Further afield there are courses at Grimsby, Boston, Spalding and Lincoln making Sandilands an ideal place to explore some of the best golf courses in Lincolnshire.

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.
