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.

A breath of fresh air

Gem of a site, great wardens shame they are moving on but it will be another sites gain. Choice of pitches by the beach or sheltered area, we choose the latter because of forecast strong winds and wanted to put up the awning. Lovely flat pitches although one or two pooled with water during heavy rain. Like a lot of club sites the toilet facilities could do with a refurbishment although worked fine and plenty of hot water in the showers. Thought the site would benefit from service pitches in future. Used the booster cable for the TV and the WiFi worked fine. The nearest fish and chip shop in the village was excellent and the Waterfront restaurant worth a visit. Plenty do in the area including Southwold, Aldeburgh and walking galore.

We will be back.

We visited the site over one of the most rainy days we have seen. This did cause the site and staff some issues but they handled things as best they could. The biggest issue for us was the Motorhome service point. It is based on a slope just past reception and Only has one lift panel. With our vehicle (European with right hand side drain off) that meant turning around against the one-way flow of traffic and the turning bay often has a vehicle or two parked there. The slope worked against us as we couldn’t run off 50% of our grey water. Next time we will try the other point near the beach? Other than that the walks down through Benacre Nature Reserve are fantastic. The food at the Waterfront Restaurant is highly recommended (book early). The food at the local pub was also good, even if surroundings were dated. Overall a great stay and we will return as the location was ideal for us and our love of walking, the sea, and eating out.

Good base

We chose this site because of its proximity to lots of tourist places as its was our first visit to Suffolk Enjoyed visiting Minsmere, Dunwich Head, Southwold, Orford, Framlingham, Sutton Hoo and Aldburgh. Town,history and nature in a week.. great variety Most places accessible in a motorhome but members might want to check the best way into Minsmere if you drive a larger motor home. The site was fine but the shower block needs updating... Clean and tidy but not up to current requirements imo. Beach is ok but not fantastic scenery.... We come from Northumbria!. Small nature reserve worth a check if you turn right on the beach and past the caravan site and look for small lake.

Great site location.Excellent Wardens

We have been visiting this site for 15+ years and have spent 48 nights this season on site. The site is extremely well run by friendly and professional wardens. Kenny, Laura, Peter and Audrey are a credit to the club, being the best of a very good bunch of Wardens over the years. All 4 Wardens moving on at the end of this season, White House Beach’s loss, a massive gain for the club sites these guys are going to. The site is ideally situated close to the shingle beach. The Jewel in the crown for us is the Waterfront Restaurant next to the beach. The food is excellent, the ambience is fantastic, the staff very friendly. A must visit eating experience.
