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 little gem!

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
Stayed for 3 nights in early July whilst touring Anglia. Good access from the main roads; the road does narrow as you approach the site and there are some parked vehicles but with a little patience and care, it is not a problem. We chose the non-beach side as, whilst being on the beach has lovely views, it is very exposed to the weather/winds, whereas the other side is very sheltered and peaceful. So much so, we observed 2 young deer one morning in the woodland right behind our outfit. The beach is at the site entrance and stretches as far as the eye can see in each direction, so great for walks and dogs. It also extends down to a nature reserve (south). Pitches were all generous size and level; just a little spot of weeding required but this is being picky! The wardens were particularly friendly and welcoming upon arrival and during our stay. The shower block is a little tired and there are no shelves in the shower cubicles for wash bags, personal items etc. Just outside of the main entrance gate is the Waterfront Restaurant (which we did not visit on this occasion but it offers lunches and evening meals in a nice setting), the Sailor's Home Pub (which we did visit on a number of occasions - this is one of those businesses which has tackled Covid-19 restrictions very effectively - over half of the car park has been covered with Astroturf and tables/chairs, planters, canopies, parasols etc, so lots of places to sit and enjoy a drink or very good value meal. The pub is attended by 4 very nice ladies who were extremely efficient, so there was no waiting for service. It comes highly recommended). There is a fish and chip shop 5 minutes walk from the site, doing eat-in or take-away. Of all the sites we visited on this trip, this was our favorite and we hope to return again soon.

Excellent stay

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
Arrival was hassle free. Five van queue which was dealt with efficiently. Chose the main site and a pitch on the lower end of the site both of which were in good condition, as were the amenities at the top of the slope/hill. Spent Monday to Friday relaxed, during the day & at night. Easy beach walk to Lowestoft and found a nice sandy stretch of beach at Pakefield, 3km away. The beach infront of the upper site is shingles but near to the waters edge is interspersed with sandy areas that allow for stone free sunbathing. All in all highly recommended.

Lovely site superb Wardens Pity about some members

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
We have just returned from another visit to this lovely site. We were greeted by the superb Wardens and the booking in process was easy and safe we chose a pitch on the beach side site on the rear row which was a mistake due to the traffic noise right behind you.Some of the pitches were in need of a weeding but with the site being so busy the wardens are hard pressed to attend to it, they seem to be working in excess of 50 hours a week. Unfortunately the behaviour of some members does not help eg: 1. arriving hours before 1PM and causing traffic chaos in the village. 2. ignoring the covid rules for toilet entry. on 4 occasions My wife and myself went to use the facilities and found the hooks for rings occupied indicating that the maximum number were within .after waiting some time we opened the door to check who was inside to find it completely empty, on another occasion I saw a member go straight in without using a ring. Despite these niggles we both enjoyed our stay as did our little dog.

Moneing old git

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
Well what can I say I've been going to Whitehouse beach for quite a few years now, but the site is just not how it used to be ,the pitches are very untidy,weeds all over the place, I can't say what the toilet facility was like as I used my own vans equipment, as for a big 2ft sign saying no visitors as for covid , twice the next van and the next to me had visitors, plus 2 cars with a caravan, mentioned it to the wardens but they were not told, Is it not there job to check these things out by going around the site, also the gate to the beach used to have a sign that no cables were to be over the path as it was a trip hazard, two separate vans used that pitch and both times the Orange cable was over the path. other than my gripes we had a great time.

Nice site

White House Beach Caravan Club Site
This site is ideally situated on the coast. Nearby is Lowestoft and a bit further is Great Yarmouth. The wardens are friendly and the amenities are clean. However these amenities are in need of an upgrade. CAMC HQ has had a recent update so please put some cash into the sites. We, the members, don’t see head office only the sites.
