The Area & Things to Do
Church Farm is situated in the quiet village of Anderby, two miles east of the picturesque beach of Anderby Creek. This unspoilt stretch of coast, lined with sand dunes, is perfect for a day by the sea, for paddling, sand castle building, kite flying, beachcombing or cloud watching in the wonderful Anderby Creek Cloud Bar.
Other, more remote beaches are accessible along the winding coast road where you will encounter the diversely named Moggs Eye, Wolla Bank, Chapel Six Marshes and Huttoft Car Terrace.
Anderby lies at the heart of Lincolnshire's newly established Coastal Country Park, where ancient meadows and nature reserves provide a distinctive landscape which can be enjoyed all year round.
We have five, adult bikes which are available for hire to our guests on a daily/short or weekly basis. These are perfect for accessing the local beaches, nature reserves and cafes within the Coastal Country Park.Please speak with us and we can let you know all the details and costs. We have secure garaging if you would like to bring your own bikes.
