    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.

This review is for Kessingland

We had a major problem with a flooded tent after our first night and the staff were so helpful and supportive, even offering us a full refund if we chose to pack up (which we didn't). Site was well looked after and felt safe. Shower blocks were clean, with constant hot water. The only down side of the shower blocks were that the temperature wasn't adjustable & was too hot to wash my little one under the shower. As for noise, I'm really sensitive to noise & although the wind turbines did make some noise, more so when they turned quickly, you got used to it & it sounded like background aircraft noise. There was also some noise from the neighbouring Africa Alive, but mainly parrots & birds which was inoffensive. It would not be enough to put me off returning. All in all a lovely site, made better by friendly staff.

Great for kids with a small play area. Good facilities building and on site shop.

This review is for Kessingland

Great for kids with a small play area. Good facilities building and on site shop. Although there were plenty on the site, it didn't seem too busy, and the site has tall hedges/trees all the way round, which gives a more private feel. There is a large wind turbine next door, but it didn't generate much noise, and certainly didn't disturb our sleep. Africa Alive is next door, which kept the kids happy for a day.

Found a wonderful beach a Covehithe. Park by the church then take the footpath to the beach you will not be disappointed. Only a few miles drive or you can walk from Kessingland Beach but not with young children.
