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.

Used Kessingland when it was nice and quiet to get totally away. The wind turbines can be a little noisy when the wind is in the wrong direction but you soon forget it. A pleasant mile and a half walk to the shingle beach and don't miss the car boot next to the site on Sundays. Nearest supermarket is a short drive away towards Lowestoft with other well known stores in Lowestoft itself. There is plenty of parking in the town or catch the bus which stops just outside the main site entrance.

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.
