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.

Time for site update

Over the years we have been to this site a number of times returning year after year. This year we returned again and we're lucky enough to get a super pitch on the sea front. First thing we noticed was that the toilet/shower block on the beach field had not been updated having been assured by the same wardens the previous year that they would be, and believe me they really are past their sell by date. The pitches on the sea front are looking unkempt and need tidying up and whilst we were there the grass wasn't cut for the entire duration of our 2 week stay. Wardens came across very officious about car parking on the pitches but this didn't appear to apply to everyone on the site definitely a lack of consistency. Overall it's a lovely site and I would reccomend it if you're looking for rest and relaxation but I think the wardens have become a little complacent and need to spend more time tidying up the pitches.

Great location but

Fantastic location amazing beach great restaurant The Waterfront short walk away, thought site was a little dated, flower beds untidy (August BH) Staff not quite as friendly as other sites? Sinks in ladies Loo’s need attention, some not as clean as they could be especially round the taps. It was a busy BH with a few children on site but the shower floors in ladies were dirty at 4ish, I know children run in and out but not nice. Pitch size ok Morrison’s not far

TV Reception

Lovely site but it says the TV reception is fair......but it's not our TV would go for a while then pixel and lose signal both on the supplied plug-in and on our own ariel. This happened everyday we were there so we gave up in the evening's and watched DVD's. This is my only gripe about the site everything else was lovely and the wardens were really friendly.....short walk to the beach etc

Brilliant staff but smelly sewerage nearby.

Have been coming to this site for 30 plus years, in fact originally joined at this site. Staff and general area is great but now have 3 grandchildren and the play area desperately needs an upgrade and additional equipment. Came last year with kids and there was a smell of sewerage occasionally but put down to worse when it rains. This year it permeated most of the area by the main toilet block. Not quite unbearable but very unpleasant. Staff were very concerned and said they call Anglian Water daily but when they come smell is not there. My advice is go on beach side or well away from back fence of site near toilet. Immaculately kept site in all other ways. Sorry Kessingland, I will return but try to get away from smell.
