Attraction Information



Pete's Lurve Shack - aka the Vobster Quay Caravan - is lowered into the water...

Live it up in luxury inside this fully-equipped caravan - all mod-cons provided!

Divers with suitable penetration training will enjoy exploring inside the caravan...
If you're travelling to Vobster Quay and require somewhere to stay overnight, there are plenty of hotels and bed & breakfast accommodations in the local area that will be happy to put you up for the night.

For those looking for something a little different, though, be sure to check out Vobster Quay's very own onsite accommodation... Pete's Lurve Shack.

Donated by a former Vobster Quay staff member, Pete's Lurve Shack is a fully-equipped caravan that now lies submerged in the lake at a maximum depth of 25 metres. With lovely views of the lake and all mod cons, we regret that the damp-proofing isn't what it used to be. For divers in need of a quick stop over, though, it's well worth a visit.

To allow easy penetration for the suitably qualified, we've increased the height of the main window at the front of the caravan. Inside you'll find a lot of the original fittings still in place including a cooker, sink and even a shower! Now consigned to the depths of Vobster Quay, visiting Pete's Lurve Shack is more fun than a week in Skegness.

Unless you're trained and comfortable inside a confined space, we strongly recommend that you peer in through the windows rather than enter the caravan directly - leave the 'big push' to those more qualified to do so. We recommend a torch too - it can get pretty dark in there!
SAFETY FIRST: Only very experienced divers with overhead environment training should enter the caravan. Movement inside both is very restrictive and the cold, darkness and depth can be very disorientating. If in doubt, DO NOT ENTER!

Underwater Potholer by the esteemed Dr Duncan Price. Tales of derring do in the murky world of caves, water and mud. Vobster regular Duncans adventures into the tantalising world of international cave exploration weave together the intricacies of working in a very complex unknown environment with trying to understand how caves have formed over millenia and where the next hidden clues to the breakthrough will be. Within pages, I was hooked.... .... and now available in the Vobster shop or at www.vobster.com

Temp and Viz update: It is officially Summer. Surface temp is now routinely over 17 degrees - like stepping into a bath when you are ascending. Still 7 degrees at 30m, with thermoclines at 8m and 14m. Temp at 20m is around 10 degrees.

Viz is interesting - very, very clear at the West end and North side of the lake - 15m possible. Southand of that, it's about 10m in the shallows, 8m on the 15m shelf and varying 5-10m in other places. Interestingly, we have 4m viz at 30-33m just now.....

Cheers, Tim
