General

  • Family-run Suffolk site with sea views
  • 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.

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 5 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Should be renamed Chalet View 29/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Stanley M. Confirmed

  • Electric grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    great toilets and showers, but we never booked for 7 days for the toilets or showers,
    we only booked for the sea views ?

    Disliked: 

    Owners so rich no one there to welcome you or sort out a pitch, expected to pitch yourself I was told then a long walk for disabled elderly couple to pay for pitch.

    should be re named beach view from the bar - as this was the only spot we could view the sea from on this site, as the sea view was sold off to chalet type accommodation built all across the view blocking the sea view completely.

    What a rip off paid for a week left after three days disgusted with Rip Off, when its advertised as sea view, we expect to view it from park, not a row of chalets blocking the view

From the manager...

I refer prospective customers to all the fantastic reviews we've had. Thank you.

Local attractions

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 fourteenth 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 nineteenth 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.
