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.

    Disliked: 

    toilets and showers and elsan point in middle of statics instead of tourers, which made it quite a hike. Wasn't impressed with organisation of pitches, was told our pitch number, only to find someone else parked there, so was told just go and find an empty spot, only one available was under trees, with 4ins of water, it was just like a mud bath, asked if we could have some sand but nobody brought any, we were there for 2 whole weeks and still no sand. Won't be back.

clean and friendly place to stay09/14/2020

    This was my children's first camping trip - when we arrived (out of hours) they were really helpful and friendly; we found our pitch really easily.
    The service throughout the entire park was brilliant; the facilities (though restricted due to covid19) were all accessible, clean and organised. the toilets were close by and numerous as well as clean.
    The site is so close to the beach, which is unspoiled.

    Disliked: 

    There were no aspects of our stay that were negative, which is great to be able to say!

    We rang two days before asking for an electric pitch and were told they hadnt got any, on arrival were given electric pitch which we did not require as we had not brought the equipment. asked to move into the tent field as originally booked and was told by a rude manager (claire) "no she cant" the reason was apparently because they were closing the field. Two nights later after spending difficult nights next to a stream, under a tree with no light or sunshine, the field filled up with aprox 20 tents!
    The receptionist was lovely but the manager was rude and unaccommodating.
    Will not be returning and will leave poor google review

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.
