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!

Do the winter water temperatures put you off diving? At Vobster Quay, we stock a full range of 'winter warmers' designed to put the fun back into winter diving. From heated jackets, thermals and dry gloves to a full range of made to measure and off the peg drysuits from Otter, Santi, Fourth Element, Oceanic, Hollis and Hydrotech, there's no excuse not to come diving!

Not dived a drysuit before? We offer drysuit training too :-)
