Overview

  • Campsites next to or within walking distance of a beach

    Top site for beaches

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

Please note: Due to annual hedge cutting on site between the dates 22 to 26 June, you may experience some noise on site. The works will start after 9am and finish by 5pm daily.

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.

Eat Local

Locally-produced eggs, bacon and sausages are available from the Site shop.

This review is for Kessingland

Just returned yesterday from a 4 night stay, friendly and helpful wardens, such a lovely site, loads of room to each pitch, quiet and nicely kept site, a lovely walk down the drive to the entrance which took us 7mins to catch the bus into Kessingland or to walk it took us 30mins, also buses to Lowestoft, Southwold, Beccles, Norwich all pretty regular and right by the entrance, there is also a Restaurant by the entrance of the site called Livingstones, which looked nice although we didn't get a chance to try it in the end. Although the site is right next to Africa Live we only heard a bit of noise from the birds now and then, there are a couple of wind turbines in the fields either side of the site, we had one right behind us where our pitch was, which we actually chose ourselves and all we could hear was a slight noise from it, which didn't bother us at all, we will definitely go back to this site, well worth a try and so convenient for getting to everywhere from. Also try the Waterfront restaurant at Kessingland Beach, they do really nice food, opens at 12pm thru the evening. There is a large car boot sale every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday on the field next to the site, when we went there was big fruit and veg stall, fresh meat stall and sea food stall which was handy, we bought some fruit, veg and dressed crab from seafood stall all very nice and fresh, this site will not disappoint.

This review is for Kessingland

We used Kessingland as a base for visits by bus to Lowestoft, Southwold and Great Yarmouth as well as Kessingland beach. Last year we visited the Africa Live zoo next door. We were able to use our London Freedom Pass which gave us free trips on the buses with Daisy, our Border Terrier.
