A long road takes you to a well laid out car park and walkway to the reserve. You can see for miles, the salt marshes, the dunes and where the MOD does target practice. Apparently this is a wonderful place to visit in October when...More
Really wonderful environment, it’s almost surreal to watch so many seals with their babies! It gets pretty busy during the winter months, there was some farmers selling fruit and veg in the car park, their Brussels sprouts were incredible.. can’t wait to return!!
We popped along in April so not the time to see the seal pups but all the same a wild and wonderful place. We talked to a very knowledgeable local who informed us that a black line a way in the distance was in fact...More
We were staying nearby so went to Donna Nook as we read about it online. We were a bit early in pup season so although there were seals there that had pups they were still quite far out from the walkway.
However, there were lots...More
We've wanted to visit Donna Nook for some time so it was great to get there in November and see hundreds of seals and their pups. It was a spectacular sight and truly nature in the raw. We visited at the peak time of year...More
This is a great place to visit for its own sake: the Humber estuary is a wild and inhospitable place at times but it is the setting for a wealth of amazing activity. Yes the roads leading to the area are very narrow and remote...More
I’ve wanted to visit for some while and I finally got to go, it can be busy and little ones might not always get to the front. Seals were giving birth whilst we were there. I’d completely forgot about what else happens during birth and...More

Get there early as poss as gets very busy as we,re coming towards peak pupping time.No boat trips l,m afraid , it is a very out of the way bleak place , normally just a M.O.D. bombing range. If red flags flying keep beach side of the fence and markers. North Somercotes is your nearest refreshments with pub , shops , Indian etc. Sometimes a burger van will be present at the car park. No toilets at beach but there are public toilets at North Somercotes near playing fields...use google maps. Just up the road at Mablethorpe at the Beck pub is the best daily cavery on the coast....hope this helps.

It is too early. You need to be there November, December. There are a few left by the beginning of January. Try to avoid weekends, or get there early. The free car park gets very busy. There is a pay car park, (weather permitting) with toilets. Enjoy.
