Kessingland Beach Holiday Park: A quiet corner

General

  • Seaside family park 15 minutes' drive from Lowestoft
  • Access to lots of sporting and watersports activities
  • Spa, sports bar, pools, adventure playground, bar and restaurant

Starland Krew and sandcastles for the munchkins, a spa bath, a sports bar, and fish and chip-fuelled smiles all round… guests can pick and mix from a vast menu of family activities at Kessingland Beach Holiday Park, on the gorgeous Suffolk coast, just north of the Benacre National Nature Reserve and 15 minutes' drive from Lowestoft.

Guests at this seaside site have access to great sports and watersports facilities, playing all sorts of games at the multisports court, shooting down the waterslide into the indoor pool, splashing about in the open-air pool or wallowing contentedly in the adjacent hot tub.

For the under-11s, the kids' clubs have activities to please sporty, arty and smarty pants alike and there’s an undercover play area and an outdoor adventure playground too, with a zipwire for the intrepid and swings and slides for those who prefer more placid playtime. Whatever activity you select can be followed up by gathering all ages for something from the frisky programme of family entertainment for the evenings.

Aside from the chippy and other takeaway food, the on-site Boathouse bar and restaurant serves up a good range of grub. Go on, have that pudding – there’s a lovely beach right outside where you can stroll it all off.

    Extremely competitive price for a Holiday Park. Our chosen pitch was quiet and the facilities were clean. The Restaurant meal was excellent too.

    Disliked: 

    The onsite Fish and Chip shop was supposed to be open on the Thursday night but wasn't due to staff shortages.

    Good breakfast in restaurant. Friendly staff working each morning!
    Reception staff friendly on arrival but told to park wherever even though we were given a pitch number.

    Disliked: 

    The way others parked and pitched selfishly so couldn’t get to empty pitches easily. Not Kessingland fault just common sense!
    The waste point being a trek away and in with static caravans!?!?
    Walk way to main facilities poorly lit and no direct path. Walking in between caravans to get to main area.

    Excellent value for money
    Great location if you have a dog as it backs onto a dog friendly beach
    Entertainment and facilities all included in the price of the stay
    They have on site restaurants if you do not want to cook (we did not use these)

    Disliked: 

    Lack of hot water in showers/washing up. This was supposed to be getting resolved, but was an issue for the full 5 days we were there which was unfortunate
    Although the park states dog friendly, dogs are not allowed in any areas including the restaurant, so we were unable to use any facilities

    Nice clean site ideally located to travel the area to site see with a couple of local pubs within walking distance
    Beach, whilst pebbled was within 5 mins walking distance and very nice to stroll along

    Disliked: 

    The Showers where cold - After reporting to site they advised issues with the boiler which clearly never got repaired during our 10 day stay. The site finally, after about the 4th day put a notice up to advise of the issues and offered the use of the showers in the Swimming Pool.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The nearby seaside towns of Lowestoft (15 minutes' drive) and Southwold (20 minutes) are among the most charming in the country: think fab family beaches, candy-coloured beach huts, piers and proms, plus buckets and spades of old-school charm. Aim for the former if you're after a bit of watersports action, or pick the latter for chi-chi shops, a zany pier attraction and seafront walks to Walberswick.

Swap beaches for beasties with family outings to see the exotic beasts roaming the plains of Suffolk at Africa Alive! (five minutes), or seek out seahorses, sharks and penguins at Sea Life Great Yarmouth (35 minutes). For wildlife of a more local variety, nip up to the waterways of the Norfolk Broads (half an hour) where you can become captain of your own boat for the day (or take a tour if you're unsure of your navigational expertise…)

For family fun on a grand scale, head to Pleasurewood Family Theme Park (25 minutes); at the opposite end of the spectrum is the tiny townscape at Merrivale Model Village (35 minutes). And somewhere in the middle is the swish Victorian pad at Somerleyton Hall (half an hour), where both mansion and gardens are worth a stroll.

Must see

  • Somerleyton Hall and Gardens (8.1 miles)
  • Fritton Lake Country World (9.9 miles)
  • Pleasure Beach (12.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Elizabethan House Museum (13.6 miles)
  • Orford Ness National Nature Reserve (23.3 miles)

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
