Safari tent camping less than a mile from the beach and near to the excellent Theddlethorpe Dunes Nature Reserve

If you don't like crowds then come to Mablethorpe beach. It's not that the place is unpopular. Far from it. The town's traditional waterfront is awash with the sort of seaside escapades that attract summer visitors – amusement arcades, donkey rides, cafés and a fairground. But the space of the place is simply endless. As the local beach guide puts it, "it seems like the tide never fully comes in", and the sands stretch for miles up the coast and into the horizon. Behind them, the beach rises and falls into a landscape of marram covered dunes. There's even a national nature reserve just a mile and a half up the road.

It's just inland from Mablethorpe town that its campsite of the same name can be found. The established site has excellent facilities throughout, with modern washrooms, washing machines, Wi-Fi, a children's play area and more, and boasts three Ready Camp safari tents set in their own private area. Each comes complete with everything the lazy camper (or family glamper) needs: two bedrooms with proper beds and space to sleep four people or a family of six in comfort; a kitchenette with a hob, fridge and microwave and plenty of storage; and a comfy sofa and dining area that extends to a verandah outside – perfect for sipping a glass of wine and listening to the birds.

From the entrance to the campsite – where there is a well-stocked little shop in reception – it's around a mile down to the beach. Just before you arrive at the waterfront, you'll pass Queens Park, where it's worth extending your stroll. The family attraction has a boating lake, paddling pool and tennis courts, among other things and, if you've brought your racquets, it's a good place to work up a sweat before you dip in the sea. Or a good excuse to cool own with an ice-cream!



Ready Camp safari tents include a double bed, triple bunk bed and a pull out bed, along with kitchen facilities (hobs, fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery and utensils), a sofa, a wooden dining table and chairs. Ready Camp safari tents share facilities with the rest of the campsite, including showers, toilets, full washroom facilities, washing machines and dishwashing facilities. Wifi is available across the site at an extra charge. Children's playground. Ice-pack freezing available. Campfires not permitted.

Suitable For

Glampers – yes (campers welcome elsewhere on the site). Dogs are not permitted in the Ready Camp safari tents.


Mablethorpe beach is endless and stretches many miles along the coast. It's a vast expanse, perfect for bucket and spade fun, while the town seafront offers everything you would expect from a British seaside resort – amusement arcades, fairground, donkey rides and cafés. It's a safe beach for swimming. Just behind the beach is Queens Park, a great family attraction with a boating lake, paddling pool, a putting green, tennis courts and a miniature railway, while a little further north is Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes National Nature Reserve – a superb unspoilt landscape of salt marshland and sands. Habitats range from tidal sand and mudflats, to salt and freshwater marshes and miles of sand dunes. It is one of only a few location in the UK where the natterjack toad can be found.

The Owner Says

Your time spent…where it matters

Time away with family & friends is great, but let’s be honest - it can sometimes be hectic to even think about!

Ready Camp takes away some of the stresses and hassles of camping - having a preerected, canvas-wrapped haven with real beds, a kitchen and dining area. There’s no need to fill the car rammed to the rafters with an endless supply of ‘just in cases’. We give you back the time to do the fun things together with your friends and family.

Pack your bedding & a sense of adventure

Walk into a comfortable haven with cosy furnishings and oodles of little luxuries. With two bedrooms, an open plan living/dining area where you can wine and dine to your hearts content or put your feet up on the comfy settee after a long day’s adventure.

The Kitchen area includes a fridge, microwave and hob, along with basic cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. (We’ve even supplied the corkscrew!)

When it comes to light’s out…we’ve even included a torch for those midnight toilet trips, or just to make funny shadows on the tent!
