RATES AND AVAILABILITY

The House With the Blue Door is no longer taking bookings for 2021. But is available to rent between March 1 and December 31 2022, the Humberston Fitties site closes in January and February. Rates start from £75 per night. Three-night minimum stay. Please email me for more information on colouroutside.thelines@outlook.com. A £75 refundable damage bond applies.

This chalet is ideal for a quiet and relaxing stay, away from the hustle and bustle, just a short stroll from a dog-friendly beach and close to Cleethorpes.

A double room, bunk room and sofa bed in the lounge are available for up to 6 guests and there is a fully equipped kitchen. Although I only advertise the property as a 4 person space because there are only two bedrooms.

I am a local artist and my artwork is displayed in each of the rooms, which I hope adds to the feel of the place. This is a historic characterful chalet with a large, enclosed garden. The chalets on the Humberston Fitties are all unique and reflect the style and tastes of their owners.

The House with the Blue Door offers a garden and decking, sitting and dining areas, a double bedroom and a bunk room. It’s tucked away in a quiet area of the Fitties, down a leafy lane, and is round the corner from a beautiful beach with a lovely walk across to Tetney marshes. It really is the perfect place for a quiet getaway but also close to the busy seaside town of Cleethorpes.

Please note that a basic wi-fi router is available in the chalet, but as we are on the coast, it can be patchy.

I don’t recommend this property as being suitable for pre-school infants, as there is no bath, only a shower room, and the space isn’t really configured for really young children. However, it’s a great space for older children to run around and enjoy.

This is a quirky, historic chalet in a large sunny and sheltered garden. Guests who enjoy this space comment on its homeliness, peace, charm, sheltered garden and old-fashioned feel. It’s often described as cosy, tranquil and quirky – home from home. Guests who have brought dogs appreciate the enclosed garden and easy access to the beach. Other people have enjoyed relaxing while sitting around the fire pit in the evenings.

However, the Fitties is not Center Parcs, nor is it an identikit holiday lodge. While the Fitties has a shared driveway with Thorpe Park, the two sites aren’t connected and guests aren’t able to use the facilities.

The House with the Blue Door is used as a holiday escape by myself and my family and I also host art and wellbeing workshops here. We have owned the chalet for six years. We live in Grimsby and come here to relax, enjoy walks on the beach in morning and evening, meet up with friends, and escape from from technology surrounded by the birds and wildlife in the garden.

This chalet is nearly 100 years old, and is kept in keeping with the style and character of a historic Plotlands property. While having a fully fitted kitchen and central heating, it’s not been overly gentrified, and is not an overtly domesticated space. This means that the slightly bohemian nature of the property might not be to everyone’s tastes.

The garden, while maintained, is not overly manicured, as being part of nature is part of the experience of staying here. This property will not suit people who are used to staying in very highly finished properties such as ultra-modern holiday lodges. The ethos of the original owners of the Fitties was make do and mend, and back to nature, and this is something that I like to maintain.

Many thanks, Sarah
