General

  • Award-winning site with Suffolk sea views and direct access to a beach
  • A mile from Lowestoft and easy access to the Broads
  • Heated pool, clubhouse, playground and free wifi

Spectacular Suffolk sea views are the order of the day at award-winning Pakefield Caravan Park, set on the coast a mile or so from Lowestoft.

This peaceful place also has direct access to a sand and shingle beach, and is a short drive through scenic countryside to the splendid Norfolk Broads, home of long waterways, lazy days on boats, wildlife of all sorts and pubs and villages aplenty along the way.

Pets are welcome on site and there are some fab coastal and countryside walks straight from the park as well as a dog-friendly beach nearby.

Away from the coast, the Broads, the bike rides and the boat trips, there's plenty to do on site too, including an outdoor heated pool, a playground and a clubhouse with seasonal family entertainment. Free wifi is available.

Among the well-kept amenities here are a toilet and shower block, a parent and baby washroom and a launderette.

This site is a member of Coastdale Parks group.

  • Liked: 

    Cleanliness, Friendly staff, ease of access to beach.
    7 minutes walk to Tramway pub, Pakefield Tandoori (recommend) and a good size Co Op.
    Beach is a mix of pebble and sand, always has a wind for kites and is a pleasant walk to Lowestoft if so inclined. Look out for the beach huts, candy coloured and a great photo opportunity.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch has a slight slope, and is grass, gets a bit muddy in October, but not a showstopper.

    Large pitch very clean facilities. Outdoor swimming pool used every day. Easy access to the beach.

    Disliked: 

    The shower cubicle was too small to shower my 5 year old granddaughter. There was very poor ventilation which made getting dry very difficult. This could be cured with a window.

Local attractions

Amble around the coast or venture inland for wildlife watching, boating and family days out from here, all within a stroll or short drive.

The seaside resort of Lowestoft is the closest to Pakefield and home to a famed lighthouse (Gulliver), a museum and access to Ness Point, the UK's most eastern spot.

Southwold and its beach huts is a short drive away along the coast, as is Great Yarmouth, with handsome beaches, an aquarium and funfair. The scenic sands of Dunwich and Aldeburgh are also well worth a beach-based wander.

Inland, the Pakefield team recommends the preserved medieval wool towns of Lavenham and Clare, a swing among the trees, zipwires and bridges of Go Ape! in Brandon and an eagle-eyed look at the giraffes, cheetahs, rhinos, lions and much more of safari park Africa Alive! in Kessingland on the Suffolk coast. Adventure park BeWILDerwood, just outside Great Yarmouth, is another top option for a family day out.

Around the Norfolk Broads Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, go for a wildlife-spotting boat trip or take a puff on the Bure Valley Railway, running for 18 miles from Wroxham to Aylsham.
