A man is selling the beach he’s owned for 15 years for a whopping £50,000.

Simon Adderley, 57, has owned the land in Ingoldmells, Skegness, since 2007 and is now preparing to pass it on to new owners.

Since it was put on the market, 750 people have inquired – 250 of whom were considered “serious buyers”, including the National Trust.

But Simon has promised to only sell to a buyer who is keen and committed to preserving nature and the stunning scenery of the beach, reports Lincolnshire Live.

The 57-year-old says most of his experience as a beach owner has been positive, allowing him to connect with nature and his surroundings.

“The most enjoyable part was getting on the beach before everyone else. We saw deer, rabbits and foxes on the beach. The feeling is a real privilege. It’s so special.”

He also said seeing porpoises and seals was a common occurrence.

“We’ve seen the sand dunes grow,” he said. “We saw a whole ecosystem reclaim the land from the sea. It’s fascinating.

“It’s not like owning anything else.

“It’s good for the soul.”

In order to decide to whom he will sell, he must know the intentions of potential buyers.

“I’ve had serious interest, so I’m going to shortlist people who want to own it for the right reasons.

“I had about 750 messages and about 250 serious buyers. Now I have to narrow it down to three people.”

Interested buyers will have the opportunity to visit the beach, where they will receive information and can ask questions.

It’s at 1pm on Sunday 13th February from the Bell Inn in Ingoldmells.

Someone interested in buying basically told Simon to name a price as high as he wants.

Simon said: ‘Someone came to me with an open checkbook because they really wanted to buy it’ – but added he wouldn’t sell it for more if the person didn’t buy the beach for “good reasons”.
