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!

Just installed on the far side of the Lake is the new wreck of the yacht 'Poppy'. What we've got here on the LH image is, one the left, the cliff, caravan and towards the top the Poppy, on the R is the cliff and the Jacquin. On the RH image is the caravan at the bottom, new wheelhouse at the top and the Poppy in the middle. Just above to the L is the pumping rig. Viz not too bad down there now! Cheers, Tim

WiFi Back and stronger.

Sorry for the lack of free WiFi last week, but the router has now been replaced with a bigger one that allows you to pretend you are at work even when ordering your Deco Burger!POSTED: 29th September 2014

Monday Viz and Temp report: It's very clear and very nice! The 6m platforms are clearly visible from the edge again and despite the weekend divers, it is still around 10m viz on the 15m shelf. Last Friday, I could see across and beyond the crushing works! Temp at the surface is still 16-17 degrees, dropping to 7 degrees at 30m. Lovely, lovely! Cheers, Tim
