    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.

We stayed at this site in a tent in August.

This review is for Kessingland

We stayed at this site in a tent in August. On arrival the staff were very friendly and we were offered a choice of pitches. The facilities are clean and we didn't have to queue for the showers even at busier times. We enjoyed walking to the beach at Kessingland and also into the village. The staff at the site are very friendly and helpful, recommending various local attractions, pubs and takeaways. There are two large wind turbines close to the site and when it is windy they do create noise, we didn't find this too intrusive. We would camp at the site again!

This review is for Kessingland

We stayed for the weekend in gale force winds and thunderstorm - in a tent. We had a warm welcome and were shown to a pitch sheltered by the hedges. There's a small play area for children. The facilities are clean and well maintained. Listen out for the lions in the evenings at Africa Wild at feeding time.

This review is for Kessingland

This is a lovely site and a credit to the wardens who are efficient, very friendly and extremely helpful. No 'jobs worths' here. If I have one criticism, it's because there were no soap dispensers in the toilet block, but it was spotlessly clean as were all of the facilities and the site. It's an easy walk down to the beach. via the road, or if you have a dog that likes a good run off the lead, then via the public footpath. It is also a dog friendly beach with loads of space. We will definitely be returning, and it will be soon! Ps. The roaring of the lions is awesome!

Lovely site, the access was no problem.

This review is for Kessingland

Lovely site, the access was no problem. The wardens were really welcoming, helpful and friendly. Livingstones pub by the entrance is much better than it at first appears. The music was a bit loud but, when asked, the waitress turned it right down. Had spaghetti carbonara, the best I've ever tasted.
