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.

I hadn't been to a zoo in a long time, but was well impressed with Africa live just next door and used Tesco vouchers to reduce entrance price from �20 to �5. Although popped out to the nearby coastal towns, was soon drawn back to the site for rest and relaxation. Some have commented on the wind turbines, but I didn't find these a nuisance, and soon forgot they were there, be back to this one soon

We stayed here with family and friends (4 Campervans) in May. The site wardens were extremely helpful in siting us together and ensured we were aware of all the facilities available. The site is superbly presented and maintained, with well cut grass and very clean toilet block. The toilet/facilities block includes dishwashing and laundry facilities and lots of local information. The reception has a small shop with papers being available to order. There are regular bus services at the entrance to the site that go to Southwold, Lowestoft and Gt Yarmouth. Southwold is highly recommended; nice pubs, fish and chips and a pier. Of course there is the Adnams brewery to visit too!
There is a zoo adjacent and a few strange sounds may be heard from the site! The only very slightly down side is the two wind turbines close to the site, which initially could be quite audible depending on wind direction. However, it very soon faded into the background and was forgotten. Overall, this is a fantastic site, run to a very high standard by cheerful and obliging staff.
