There are two main areas to chapel st leonards. The first area is the village and the second is holidaymakers area where the caravans sites are.
*Firstly the village*
The set out of the village is based around a tradional village green. Around the green is some shops, a large co-op (which has cash machines) and some amusements.
Not far from the green are two car parks but one is hidden in a housing estate but is large. The other car park is easily spotted and includes some toilets and a tourist information centre.
The shops are a bit of a mixture for example there is a book shop/sweet shop and also a shop that sells cheap food as well as a clothing shop. For basic essentials there is a newsagents, chemist, butchers and chip shop.
There is an entrance to the beach just passed the amusments.
*Now for the holidaymakers area*
This area houses a lot of caravan sites the main one being the robin hood site (I dont know if its still called this).
Various parks have there own facilites. A lot of these sites have their own beach access. In this there is also a crazy golf which any one can use. There are also fishing facilites and various newsagent type shops. As you would expect there are various pubs in this area many serving food.
To the end of chapel st lenords there is an street called trunch lane. Here there is a free car park next to the end of this street. Down the street is quite a few amusements and resturants/chip shops. There is also quite a large mini market which is very cheap!
The beach at chapel st lenords is clean and tidy. It is a sandy type of beach and is lifeguarded in the season. There also used to be a bycicle selling ice creams though im not sure if this still runs. Another intresting place along the beach is a pub. This used to be a former public toilets and has now been converted. There are lovely seaviews if you can get a seat in the evening. This must be the smallest pub in the country!
Chapel st lenords is a good base for lincolnshie attractions and is a quiter place to stay then ingoldmells. It caters for families. The place is ideal to stop for a week or a day trip but you may become bored if you stop for longer than a week.
Summary: great for caravan holidays
