The new Boatshed building and Vista café at Huttoft will officially open next week.

The facility on the Lincolnshire coast is ideally located for visitors and locals to enjoy, whether they're walking the coastal path, enjoying activities on the beach or just passing by. 

The Boatshed features a café and kiosk as well as an external area capable of hosting larger 'pop-up' events.  

Inside visitors can find information about attractions throughout the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park, as well as refreshments and toilet facilities. 

The café is dog-friendly and provides a great place to stop along the coast between Sutton on Sea and the North Sea Observatory at Chapel Point. It replaces an existing redundant boat shed metres from the seafront.  

The project has been co-funded by Lincolnshire County Council and the Greater Lincolnshire LEP. 

Pat Doody, Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “We are extremely pleased to have provided grant funding to enable this innovative scheme, transforming what was originally a small boatshed on the beach into a great facility.  

“It will play an important role in the recovery of our visitor economy post Covid and provide a much needed stopping off point between existing attractions along the coastal area, enticing more visitors to stay longer and creating a new interactive space for both tourists and local communities.”
