The property occupies a prominent location on the southern side of Lumley Road, the prime retailing pitch in the popular Lincolnshire East Coast resort of Skegness.
Skegness is the largest and busiest of the resorts located on Lincolnshire’s East Coast, having a resident population of circa 20,000, increasing significantly during the busy Summer months from the influx of holiday makers into the town and surrounding area. Prior to Covid the town was regularly attracting over 4 million visitors a year generating close to £500 million for the local economy.
The large resort at Ingoldmells is located approximately 5 miles to the north, which is the location of some of the largest static caravan parks in Europe. Other nearby resorts from which the town draws visitors include; Sutton on Sea, Chapel St Leonards and Mablethorpe. The much larger town of Grimsby is situated approximately 25 miles to the north, Lincoln approximately 50 miles to the west and Boston approximately 30 miles to the south west.
The character of the surrounding area is very much retail in nature, with a large number of national multiple retailers occupying nearby premises. These include Boots, Specsavers, Poundland, WH Smith, Trespass, Savers, Heron and Holland & Barratt. The covered shopping centre in the town centre is known as The Hildreds Centre, which is situated a short walk to the east and retailers within the Centre include Sports Direct and Home Bargains.
We understand that all mains services are available and connected to the property. These have not been tested and interested parties are therefore advised to make their own investigations to the relevant utility providers.
