- Family-run site on the Suffolk coast
- Within walking distance of Aldeburgh and Thorpeness
- A pebble throw from the nearest beach, via the coastal footpath
Beach View is also Beach Walk. Guests can see the sea and sands between Aldeburgh and Minsmere Dunwich from Beach View Holiday Park on the Suffolk coast – and when they’ve finished gazing on its loveliness/taking selfies, it’s a pebble throw from the park pitches to the nearest beach along a coastal footpath…
More selfies? Trot along to other Suffolk seaside towns like Aldeburgh and Thorpeness within walking distance from the park, or lace up boots to go in search of scenery to share on social media: the area around Beach View is part of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with gentle walks/strenuous hikes all around. Too much faff? Pack binoculars for birdwatching or a rod for sea fishing, both also handy within roaming distance.
A campsite has been established in this very Suffolk spot since the 1950s and Beach View Holiday Park is now family run, with up to date facilities including a heated shower and toilet block, disabled access toilet and shower room, launderette, family games room and a clubhouse bar open from Thursdays to Sundays in summer serving drinks and snacks.
Shops, takeaways, a leisure centre and a cinema are handy at Leiston two miles away and both Waitrose and Tesco have supermarkets five miles from base at Saxmundham.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the north
From the A12 heading south from Lowestoft, take the left-hand turning on the bend at Yoxford (B1122), continue for 5 miles and take the left-hand turning signed Sizewell Beach. Follow this road for 1.5 miles and then take a right-hand turning signed Sizewell Hall. Turn left at the top of the hill.
From the south
From the A12 heading north from Ipswich towards Lowestoft, take the A1094 Snape/Aldeburgh exit (right-hand turning). Stay on this road for 3-4 miles until you come to a left-hand turning for Leiston B1069. Turn left and follow the road through Knoddishall and into Leiston. Turn right into Cross Street and go straight over the traffic lights. Follow the road to the T-junction and turn right onto Sizewell Beach Road (Sizewell Gap). Continue for one mile and take the right-hand turning signed Sizewell Hall. Turn left at the top of the hill for Beach View.
Scenic seaside jaunts all around: make for Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Southwold, Lowestoft and Orford to soak up the towns and landscape of the Suffolk Heritage Coast, most of which is among the beaches, estuaries, marshland and forest of the Suffolk Coast and Heath Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (more of which in a sec).
Aldeburgh, another Victorian coastal resort that well-to-do subjects of Good Queen Bess descended upon in summer, is still an esteemed destination for Suffolk coastal explorers and gentle souls seeking to escape city life among the Victorian beach villas.
If you’re an angler, sea fish here for eels, cod, bass and whiting; if you’re a fish fan, buy some of the day’s catch from the fishermen on the beach. (And if the sound of music makes you trill, look up the all-year events of the Aldeburgh Music Festival, set up in post-Victorian times by Lowestoft composer Benjamin Britten.)
More trilling should be possible at Southwold, ‘Suffolk’s beer town’, as this is the place where Adnams Brewery is placed and where boozy treats have been produced since the 14th century; tours including beer tasting and a bottle to take home run daily.
Also at Southwold – before brewery tour rather than after is probably best – take a tour of the 19th-century lighthouse right in the centre of town before having a promenade among the potty machinery (you’ll see what we mean when you get there), eateries and mirror walk of Southwold’s award-winning pier. From nearby Thorpeness, hire a canoe, kayak, sailing boat or rowing boat out for a punt around Victorian Thorpeness Meare.
And… back to the AONB. The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty comes complete with three RSPB reserves to wildlife spot and birdwatch at, including one at Minsmere to watch wading birds wading around while hidden in a hide (watchers, not birds), one along the coast at Orford and one back in Aldeburgh.
Additionally, stroll along the old old heathland of the Sandlings and the AONB’s three forests (Rendlesham, Tunstall and Dunwich) to see rare butterflies, reptiles and birds of many sorts. The rare habitat of Dunwich Heath near Saxmundham flames with flora colour in summer and is home to woodlarks, nightjars, adders and acres of excellent walks.
Back close to home, local town Leiston is worth a look for its Long Shop Steam Museum, a tribute to Leiston’s hustling industrial days manufacturing farm equipment and steam engines.
