Why stay here ...

With one part of the White House Beach Club Site adjacent to the beach and the other enclosed by attractive willow trees and shrubs, there's a pitch to suit all tastes at this location. In early summer the foreshore is a riot of colour with wild flowers, including the rare Yellow Poppy. Although Kessingland beach is shingle, Lowestoft is within easy reach from the caravan site and has a beautiful sandy beach complete with the lifeguard safety. The Sailors Home pub in Kessingland comes recommended and is dog friendly.

Recently voted best large attraction in the area, Africa Alive is just a short distance from White House Beach Club Site and offers a great safari park attraction for the family. Nearby Charmind Southwold has recently become a landmark for being the setting for the movie adaptation, "Iris", starring Kate Winslet and Dame Judy Dench. The caravan park is also just a few miles away from the Pleasure Wood Hills Theme Park, which guarantees a fun day out for children. Other not-to-be-missed excursions include taking a day boat on The Broads and going fishing or bird watching at Minismere. More nearby places to visit include the picturesque Framlingham Castle and the National Trust owned site of Horsey Windpump.

Relaxing by the coast

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
Our first visit to this site, and we were delighted: right on the coast, you can start walking and exploring from the site gate. Miles of shingle, interesting geology, birdwatching and botany, or just relax, or fish, listening to the waves. Note: it is not ideal for swimming or water sports here, because the beach shelves dramatically and there are strong currents. We found the site staff friendly and helpful, very busy keeping everything clean and tidy. The shore side of the site is sheltered and mixed grass/hard standing, and the laundry block is here. However, we preferred the beach side. Facility block here is a little more basic, salt and damp winds batter everything, make the vegetation a bit sparse, and the exposed site means it’s risky to put up awnings or leave items out, but we loved being out in the elements. It could be quite bleak if you are not lucky with the weather! Supplies usually available from the big commercial campsite next door, the village has busy chip shop, pub with marquee and live music, and a posher restaurant if you can book ahead. Bus stop in village Lowestoft/Southwold with basic service if you want a day out. Hesitate to recommend as we’d like to keep it to ourselves, but enjoy!

Nice site in good location

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
There is good access to the shingle beach and you can walk into Lowestoft along the beach (about 3 miles). Bus stop about a mile walk with regular buses to Lowestoft, Norwich and Southwold. Only 1 showerblock on site which is fairly basic. Also information room rather basic . TV reception with aerial booster cable excellent and wifi good on site. Sailor Inn next door which is good for basic food and drink but did have live music sessions on Sat and Sun evenings which some may love and some may hate (this may be summer season only but there was no information about it). Do be aware that site opens at 13.00. Don't understand this inconsistency in different sites which only leads to confusion and frustration for all concerned.

First time staying at White House Beach

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
This is a peaceful site in a beautiful area. Contrary to other comments we thought the grounds were well kept. The toilets were clean but dated. Our main gripe is the size of our pitch which was very small Unfortunately we only realised how small once we had set up the awning and our ‘neighbour’ parked his car. We had very little room to the side and front of the pitch to sit out with a table and the neighbours car was very close even though he had parked correctly. I spoke to the warden as I thought that the distances were not within the clubs legal requirements. Although he said he would come and look and speak to us nothing happened. We could have moved but the site was very busy and we would have to take the awning down and put up again. This marred what other wise was a lovely holiday. The information room was quite basic and better information about the area would have been helpful. On a positive note the area is beautiful with so much to see, great walks and excellent food. Most pubs / restaurants were dog friendly although some beaches other than Kessingland were not. Highly recommend visiting Southwold, Aldeburgh any Horsey Bay to see the seals. Excellent fish and chip shop in the village. Good food at the Waterfront restaurant but very difficult to get a table, book ahead if you want to go there, only outside is dog friendly though. Local pub wasn’t serving food most nights due to staff shortage. Only found out about Nisa store on neighbouring static caravan site day before we left.

First time

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
Nice peaceful site in a good location. Toilet showers need upgrading as there is only two hooks to put your clothes on every thing else has to go on the floor and as there is no shower curtain everything gets wet, Good idea is to take your washing powder with you and wash your clothes while your there. Main problem is with new arrivals being at the barrier from 12-00 noon some days and as time goes on the entrance gets blocked and some inconsiderate people think this is ok. Its about time the wardens turned them around and tell them to come back at 13-00hrs. To be fare to the wardens some days they were letting them in ten minutes early, The road to the site does get narrow through the village the last bit being room for one vehicle only, but don't worry if you are on the narrow bit coming out those arriving will speed through and try to get you to reverse a hundred yards or more, I had a few crapping them selfs, The idea is to know you're vehicle size and look and forward plan ahead not barge through as if you're a Sherman tank.

First time at White House beach

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
Just returned from a few days away here. Site little bit scruffy as nearly handstand pitches had weeds growing and tidying up needed . As others stated shower block needs makeover, was clean but in need of renovation. Site very quiet and good spacing. Wardens we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. Waterfront restaurant just outside gate is amazing, but book in advance of your arrival as very busy. The local fish and chip shop further up the road has small restaurant and is very clean, fish was superb well worth a visit. Sailors Home pub is next to the Waterfront, good local beers, we didn’t eat here but typical pub food. Beach is mainly pebbles, good walk to Lowestoft along beach. Lowestoft is a typical tired fishing port,however Southwold is superb ( plus Adnams brewery is in the town with tours available) We will definitely go again suits us but family may struggle to entertain the children unless you have car to take them further afield
