Where better to base yourself during an island holiday than a converted boathouse sitting on the shoreline? At Watch House, the beach is your front garden and island sunrises, your alarm clock.
At A Glance
LocationEast Coast (Old Grimsby)
ViewFar-reaching sea views taking in Old Grimsby harbour and the islands beyond
Picture perfect Watch House stands proudly atop Ravens Porth, unmissable with its white walls and cheery blue detailing. Indoors, the relaxed beach house vibe continues with wooden floors stained in a teal hue, a resplendent sunroom spanning the length of the house, and a dining table overlooking Ravens Porth and its marram grass border.
Upstairs, a cluster of cosy bedrooms provide space for eight, with the sea views from the master bedroom stealing the show. Outside, Watch House enjoys a vast private lawn as well as courtyard space neighbouring the beach.
The sailing school is on your doorstep, with a scattering of uninhabited isles and islets just further afield and waiting to be explored by sailing dinghy or paddleboard. Grab a last-minute dinner of wood fired pizzas from the Ruin Beach Café next door – best consumed on the terrace or even the beach below.
As day breaks, take your morning coffee to the shoreline and watch the changing sky.
