Dog friendly beaches in Lincolnshire

  • Share on Facebook

The Lincolnshire coast runs for more than 50 miles down the East of England, so naturally it has its fair share of beaches. We know that no trip to the beach is complete without the company of man’s best friend, and you can enjoy dog friendly beaches in Lincolnshire throughout the offseason and summer months alike.

Lincolnshire is keen to preserve its coastal charms meaning that on many of the county’s beaches dogs are banned or are otherwise restricted. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the best dog friendly beaches, to give you an idea of where you can freely take your pooch for a walk and when. Continue reading to understand why we are so barking mad about the few Lincolnshire beaches that do allow dogs.

Saltfleetby Theddlethorpe Dunes, close to Mablethorpe
Saltfleetby Theddlethorpe: vast and spectacular

Dogs allowed: all year round

This is a great place to take a long walk with your four-legged friend. Theddlethorpe Beach is definitely one for nature lovers thanks to its superb unspoilt landscape of sands and salt marshland. Saltfleetby Theddlethorpe Dunes are designated a National Nature Reserve and there is a range of habitats on show.

The beach itself is simply vast and at low tide it can take up to 20 mins to get to the water’s edge. Bring your camera and you can take some wonderful pictures with your pooch through wild grasses over the sand dunes. If you’re coming by car, please note that the car park is not so large and the road accessing it is single file most of the way, so be sure to stay aware of oncoming traffic.

Chapel St Leonards: a haven for the hound

Dogs allowed: all year round (1 May - 30 September, dogs are not allowed in a specified area)

Chapel St Leonards is a quaint sand and shingle beach on the Lincolnshire coastline. The beach is a popular place for swimming and family days out, but it is also as good a place as any for taking your canine friend as the beaches stretches for many miles in both directions.

Chapel St Leonards is a dog friendly beach in Lincolnshire, which is a rare attribute. However, dogs are banned on the busiest section between 1st May-30th September, but don’t worry as there are signs on the railings to help you identify the area. Facilities are available a short walk away in the village centre which also offers shops and takeaways for picnics on the beach.

Moggs Eye, Huttoft

Moggs Eye, Huttoft
Moggs Eye: serene as far as the eye can see

Dogs allowed: all year round

Moggs Eye is a hidden gem and one of the best dog-friendly beaches in Lincolnshire. This rural beach comprises a wide strip of golden sand which slopes gently into the sea and is backed by grassy sand dunes. Beachgoers enjoy walking their four-legged friends over the clean and tidy sand dunes in the wide-open space with no restrictions. Surfing, angling and birdwatching are also an option at this hidden treasure.

You are unlikely to run into too many other people, perhaps the odd family with water boards, horse riders, or another dog walker or two, but you definitely will not be crowded. The beach is also ideal for a picnic as you can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. There is a pay & display car park and clean toilets with disabled access too.

Ingoldmells Beach, Ingoldmells

Ingoldmells Beach, Ingoldmells

Dogs allowed: all year round

Sharing its name with the resort town of the same name, Ingoldmells is a sandy beach on the Lincolnshire coastline backed by a promenade. The town is home to the Fantasy Island theme park which can be fun for the kids, but the beach is where you’ll be wanting to take your pooch.

The beach is popular for swimming and has achieved Blue Flag status and you can even take water-loving pooches for a paddle here too. It’s unusual along the Lincolnshire coast as dogs are allowed on part of the beach all year round without restrictions. So, if you are looking for a reliable place to soak up some rays and give your four-legged friend some much-needed exercise, this could be the beach for you. Parking is available about 50 metres from the main entrance to the beach in a large multi-story car park located along Sea Lane. There are also plenty of other facilities such as shops, pubs and places to eat as well as public toilets nearby.

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
