'Era' is a true vintage beach chalet originally built between 1914 and 1922 right on the seafront at Humberston Fitties. She was damaged very badly during the 1953 floods but her chimney and foundations remained and were rebuilt in 1953. We bought her in 2016 and she had been 'modernised' but only superficially. We have restored her very carefully in the last two years. The main thing was preserving her chimney and roof, and getting her interior in harmony with her exterior.

We spent two years restoring her, and with the support of her previous owners who still come to visit, we rented her out. The chalet needed vintage furniture and styles consistent with age and character but blended with modern home comforts including Sky Q and full WiFi throughout.

Interaction with guests
We will spend around 15 minutes showing you where things are, reading the electricity meter with you as well as answering any questions you might have. Then we'll heave-ho and leave you to start your holiday. We are less than an hour away at all times. In addition a friend who lives on site is available in emergencies. The neighbours either side are retired, quiet folk but very helpful about local amenities and enjoy a chat. In other words this is not a chalet for loud parties, more for peace and quiet and walks on the beach plus a decent meal and a few drinkies and even a bit of tobacco smoke, just remember to vent the rooms and we are all happy :o) Chill out. No dogs or smoking in the bedrooms.

About the neighbourhood
'Fitties' is a local word meaning salt-marsh. People first came to Humberston Fitties in the early 1900's for the wonderful air and the quality of the light. Electric lighting was installed only in the 1990's, also during that decade the whole area was made into a Conservation Area to preserve the unique features and styles. Just to the south is Donna Nook - a nature sanctuary for migrating birds and seals.

Cleethorpes beach is famous for kite-surfing as the conditions are so good. It is also on the Top Ten Beaches list.

From the beach you can see Haile Sand and Bull Forts. These were built in WW1 and an anti-submarine net stretched between them. Several of the older chalets (including Era) were used for billeting troops during both wars.
Getting around
Ample parking for three cars at the rear of the chalet down 3rd Avenue.

There is a launderette and small shop within walking distance on the Thorpe Park site.

There are plenty of pubs and shops in Humberston Village within walking distance and a Tesco Extra approx 3 miles away in Humberston, who can of course also deliver.

There is a file with take-away and restaurant menus in the chalet.
