Why stay here ...

With one part of the White House Beach Caravan 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 Caravan 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.

We spent a week here in early November, the good weather was an additional bonus especially when located on the front row overlooking the sea, there was always something going on. A bit of a walkers paradise supported by a good bus service that interconnects well, so getting around by local transport is very good. The facilities are kept to a high standard and you are made very welcome by all the wardens who really cannot do enough for you and are always available whenever you need them. Eating out is also very good as there are places quite local to the site.Smile

Thoroughly enjoyable stay

We arrived here at lunchtime on Tuesday of kids half term & were lucky enough to get a beach side pitch. There is room for 24 motorhomes/caravans, so it's own little community. Very peaceful, great outlooks to the beach & perfect for walks along the beach to Lowestoft (4 miles) or Southwold (8 miles) the other way. There is a cafe/restaurant & a pub 100 metres away & a chip shop just a bit further on. The local Co-op supermarket is a 10 minute walk away. Buses pick up/drop off near to the site, though when we were there the road was closed near the site so had to get off the stop before, which was about 10 minutes away. Very handy for Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft & Southwold & also Norwich is only half hour drive away. This looks to be a great city to visit. I can't comment on the rest of the site across the road as we didn't need to go there but a fantastic site which is definitely recommended. The beautiful weather was of course an added bonus.

You may be lucky, but if not don't worry!

We, along with many I would guess, hoped to get a pitch along the front of the site overlooking the foreshore and out to sea. Sadly this was not possible as that area naturally books out early, I would guess unless you can "move in" mid week, forget it. So it was into the main site we went. All pitches seem to be to the usual CC high standard, and TV was available on the EHU post (good because my aerial, which is normally good, struggled a bit). We struggled with the club wifi, the paying process locked up and we found we had paid but could not log in (as we were already logged in....except we weren't) so will follow this up. Mobile phone signal on O2 was ok for talking but no data. We walked onto beach and actually the seafront pitches are a good 240 -250 metres away from the sea over a pebble and scrub foreshore so the seafront pitches while nice to get are not the be all and end all. Enjoyed a walk into Lowestoft and back and found the whole place nicely relaxing though there were few children when we went as half term had just ended.

Great seaside family site

Visited this lovely site 4 times now and still lots to keep the children happy, easy to reach the pebbled beach across a small road (watch the younger members!)  Clean toilet blocks and all hardstanding, we will be back.

First trip to Suffolk

This was my first visit to the Suffolk coast and the caravan club site at Kessingland was an excellent base for a few days. The wardens were very friendly and I was lucky to get a pitch on the beach side with a sea view. The facilities were more than adequate and if I'm ever in the area again I wouldn't hesitate to use this site.
