About the property

Holiday cottage in Mumby, Nr. Sutton-on-Sea, Lincolnshire, England LN13 9SE - Local Pub Within Walking Distance

Corbiere really is in a central position so you can enjoy the peace of the countryside and the views for miles across the fields to the back of the property. Sometimes the barn owl and weasels can be seen at dusk hunting along the field boundaries.

Corbiere has been completely refurbished (Spring 2014) and now offers home comforts such as a TV with Freeview and DVD, a leather sofa, microwave and washing machine. For guests with mobility needs please be aware that there is a step up into the shower. there is a grab rail in the shower. We are planning this autumn (2016) to repaint where needed and plan how to improve the garden area... any suggestions when you have stayed will be gratefully received!

The long sandy beaches of Huttoft Bank and Anderby Creek are just a 10 minute car drive away. From there you can walk to Sutton on Sea (and even to Mablethorpe if you are feeling very energetic). There are plenty of dog friendly cafes at both seaside resorts and pubs to relax in and for refreshments.

Sutton on Sea has long sandy beaches to enjoy, a promenade to stroll along and a good variety of pubs, shops and restaurants to try, from the Bacchus Hotel to fish and chips. Children love the large paddling pool sheltered from the sea breeze and there are tennis courts and bowls or Petanque to try too. We easily entertained 6 children aged 8 to 13 for 3 days here last year. It is a quiet resort without amusements or slot machines. The paddling pool and long sandy beach with a lifeguard during the Summer holidays is excellent for young children too. We found that hiring a beach hut was a good idea and gave us a base with a kettle/sink/4 deckchairs from which we could relax but keep an eye on the children at the same time.

Mablethorpe is a larger resort with golden sand, a children’s paddling pool with squirting water features and amusements and rides along the prom. There are donkey rides in the summer and a cinema and Seal Sanctuary if the weather is wet.

Chapel St Leonards is also popular with families and dog lovers. Skegness is about 30 minutes drive from Corbiere and has Butlins, Fantasy Island, and a huge variety of amusements, cafes and restaurants to try!

For nature lovers, the breeding colony of grey seals at Donna Nook in November and December are a real ‘must’ and well worth trying to photograph. There are also nature reserves at Gibraltar point and Snipe Dales.

The Lincolnshire Wolds with their rolling hills are only a 25 minute drive away with the lovely market town of Louth to visit. Louth has independent shops, tea rooms and a market on Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays throughout the year. Farmers Markets take place on the 4th Wednesday and 2nd Friday each month.

Corbiere is well located for a family or friends to explore this area.

About Sarah and Peter

Hello…. I am Sarah and I manage the Corbiere on behalf of my late husband Pete and his father Gordon, who is now in a nursing home, and Pete's sister too. Gordon built the bungalow next door in 1975 as their home and Corbiere was his tractor shed! When his eye-sight deteriorated and he could no longer drive or farm, Gordon built an extension on the tractor shed and changed it into a holiday bungalow. I now live in Sheffield and Pete's family home is rented out long term to another family who have horses in the field.

It is called Corbiere as Pete's mother went to visit her brother who was posted to Jersey( when learning to become a Methodist minister). She loved the island. This trip made an impression on her and she named the holiday bungalow Corbiere after the light house on Jersey. Hence the décor in the shower room!

Why Sarah and Peter chose East Lindsey District

There are so many sandy beaches to play on that we still haven’t tried them all as we keep having to go back to our favourites! There are lifeguards at Sutton, Mablethorpe and Skegness for swimming in the sea.

We have had many lovely weeks here and have even had 12 here this summer by putting all the children in a tent outside while the ladies had the beds! There is masses of space outside and parking for several cars so it is good for meeting other members of the family.

What makes this bungalow unique

We hope that all our guests enjoy the clean and simple accommodation and the welcome tray you find on arrival. We love the huge open spaces on the beach at Huttoft and the walk to cafes at Sutton on Sea or Anderby Creek.

Lively resorts like Skegness and our favourite amusement arcade the ‘Lucky Strike’ are good for a rainy day. At the Lucky Strike you can enjoy a cuppa for 50p while the kids play on the 2p slots! Get them to save their coppers in advance. Meals there are about £3 on the chips/beans/sausage/egg theme.... always tasty and hot. If you go to the 'posh' cafe upstairs it is about £2.50 for a coffee!

Just remember that Pete used to ‘shovel’ the coins as one of his jobs (the sheer amount of coins meant it was easier to weigh them than count them) …. so really only the arcade is the winner!

Lovely place but can't do much about the weather!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was there. Owners couldn't have been more accomodating. Plenty of space to park and ideal location midway between skegness and mabelthorpe.

Ideal holiday bungalow.

  • 5 of 5

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Corbiere. The bungalow is very clean and equipped with everything we could possibly want or need to make our stay a great experience, and the bed was so comfy and inviting I didn't want to get up in the mornings!

There is a super secluded patio area surrounded by wildlife, where you can plan your day over morning coffee or reflect on the days events over a glass of wine in the evening. (We didn't manage to see the owl, but we did hear a cuckoo).

The owners are excellent to deal with and provided good, clear instructions on how to get to the bungalow and also provided a useful spreadsheet suggesting places to visit and eat.

All in all, glorious sunshine, blue skies and a clean and comfortable bungalow made our break perfect. We would love to come again.

Beautifully clean, well equipped accomodation in a great location for ecoloring.

  • 5 of 5

We've had a lovely few days at Corbiere. It's very well equipped like a home from home and exceptionally clean. Beds were really comfortable and good quality. We had lovely days out a butlins, mablethorpe and skegness and spent evenings playing cards and games. Ideal for our family of 5 with children of 13, 5 and 20 months. Will be returning to finish exploring the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the super review... as you booked over a year in advance I hoped we would live up to your expectations... we're glad we did. We bought all new mattresses last year so we're glad they were comfortable. We are smartening up the outside area this year so hope that you notice the differences when you return. We look forward to welcoming you again.
