    Top site for beaches

This campsite is just over a mile from the beach and next to Africa Alive wildlife park.

The glorious beaches of the Suffolk coast are just one of the draws for our lovely Kessingland Club campsite which is tucked away behind the former fishing village with which is shares its name.

The campsite is spacious and well presented with level pitches, a family shower room, laundry and disabled facilities as well as a small site shop selling essentials.

The sand/shingle Kessingland Beach, is just a mile and a half from the campsite. This huge expanse of sand and sand hills (seals can be spotted from here) is popular with families. The beach also runs into Benacre nature reserve - famous for bird sightings every spring as migrating birds hit British land fall.

The area around our Kessingland campsite is great for animal lovers – in addition to Benacre you can see 300 species of birds at the RSBP reserve at Minsmere and right next door to the campsite is Africa Alive wildlife park, home to more than 80 species of animals from around Africa. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens near Great Yarmouth has a tiger compound and tree-top walk to view the animals.

Lowestoft has everything you need for a traditional British seaside holiday from Victorian Seafront Gardens, fountains and two piers, plus Blue Flag award winning beaches. The sandy Lowestoft Beach, North Claremont has two piers and a number of cafes and seafront shops. The vast expanse of sand of the Blue Flag Lowestoft Beach, South Claremont makes it the ideal beach for sunbathing and sandcastles. Beach huts can be hired and there is an area with shops.

Head south to the beautiful seaside resort of Southwold. The town’s Museum and Sailor’s Reading Room provide an insight into the towns maritime past. There’s also a boating lake, Adnam’s Brewery is based in the town and head to the seafront to enjoy the award-winning beach, also famous for its colourful beach huts.

Please note: There are no grass-only pitches at this campsite so an additional pitch fee applies. There are also wind turbines near the campsite so you may hear some noise from them.

Worth Noting

This Site has especially hard ground but is well drained. TV signal is poor. Wind turbines adjacent to the site may generate some noise.

The site is beautifully looked after. Facilities are clean and well looked after.

This review is for Kessingland

The site is beautifully looked after. Facilities are clean and well looked after. With added extra of a family room which for us a young family were highly thankful. The staff are very helpful and lovely to get along with, also allowed you to choose your own pitch which was great. The small shop on site sells essentials at reasonable prices which was handy. Africa Alive zoo is next door which was brilliant! We went everyday. (Added bonus of staying at site is u only pay once and u can go in as much as you like) hours of fun to be had for all ages! The local town of Lowestoft is beautiful with all kinds of shops and places to eat. Also with the beach which is beautiful. Well kept and very seaside with the beach huts. There is local markets every day. Shopping centre. Pleasure land hill theme park also. So much to do and see. Supermarket 2mins drive from site. Highly recommend staying here to anyone as it would suit all . Young, old or groups! We travelled almost 550miles to get there and would do it again :)

This is a beautiful site. The staff are so friendly and helpful.

This review is for Kessingland

This is a beautiful site. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The site is so well laid out and well maintained. The hanging baskets were a picture, the trees and hedges very neat and tidy. The whole site was just a pleasure to look at and the staff must be commended for this. There are 2 wind turbines adjacent to the site and we were quite close to one, but even when the wind did get up, they didn't bother us - in fact, I found them to be quite relaxing! Africa Alive is next door and did not cause a problem - we heard the animals once and found it fascinating. The only minor thing is the shower block, which is starting to look a bit tired. This is not the fault of the staff. So come on C&CC, give this block a facelift and clean up so that it does justice to the staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, would difinately rcommend the site and we will most definitely go back.

Walk to Lowestoft was a bit disappointing as quite a bit of it is along roads.

Excellent site and very friendly wardens. Extended our stay as we enjoyed it so much. Very slight noise with turbines but didn't bother us. Only downside was dog walk was tiny. Can walk to Kessingland beach via country path rather than on main road.
