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.

Great site

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. We were lucky and got a pitch on the ‘seafront side’, no awnings/canopies on the very front pitches, but no problems with the others. Literally yards from the most amazing beach which our dog absolutely loved. We walked into Lowestoft the first day and were very pleasantly surprised to find it a great day out, about 5.5 mile walk each way.f Off to Southwold the next day which was incredibly busy with tourists, couldn’t believe how many people were there, pretty but a 7.5 mile walk ..... got the bus back 😂 Yes, there is some road noise from the road running alongside and the facilities block (although clean) is a bit tired, but I’d forgive both that for the position in Kessingland, lovely little place x

Ideal for beach walks and lovely wardens

I only stayed for one night in the end due to various issues and the the wardens were very kind and helpful even though I had messed them about, Bryan(?) even tried to help me with issues with my Motor Mover which was really kind. They have the wristband in the bucket of Milton here which is not as simple as hanging the wristband on the hook system but arguably more hygienic? (Though you then have to touch the bucket lid!) and there was plenty of hand sanitiser and the facilities felt really clean and safe. Some pitches a bit hilly to get on to but there was choice and it is a very attractive site and a very short walk to the beach... I know there was competition to get on to the beach side but to me although the sea views are nice you are effectively pitched in a car park with no awning! So I was happy to be on the other side of the road on the grassy side. Lovely being so close to the beach. A good base for touring if you had more time...

Ok but if you like a peaceful evening be aware

We were really looking forward to a quiet weekend away. Wardens friendly and helpful. After a quiet afternoon we were saddened by the volume of music from a pub almost adjacent to the site. Be aware.

Nice location

Holidayed on The Broads before but haven't stayed at a caravan site before in that area until now. Great site with all you might need for a good holiday. The staff were very friendly but don't expect to use the toilet block 5 mins before they clean it. Unfortunately we stayed over the bank holiday weekend and the local pub just adjacent to the site had a live band playing in a marquee in their garden, which is fine if you like the music. They only knew one volume which we could hear over the TV volume. Not one of my favourite sites (and we all have those) but I wouldn't rule it out. Make sure you visit some of the places while you're there, like Beccles and Oulton Broad.

Abbey's best site

When a 6 YO says its the best site, you have to agree. 4 visits, 2 nights each time, in 5 weeks, shows we agreed too. Pity its school time again........ Great place, lovely wardens.
