Camping in Kessingland
Why this corner of Suffolk is an idea spot for campers and holidaymakers
Kessingland has been a popular place to settle since way before the invention of the caravan. This small village of 4,000 residents in Suffolk is a notable historic site because both Paleolithic and Neolithic implements and tools have been found there – suggesting that pre-historic man also liked to take his holidays in this part of the world.
In 2012, Kessingland is reputed for its prime location for campers and holidaymakers. The small population often doubles in the summer time, as fans of camping UK-wide flock to this beaches and cliffs of this beautiful eastern coastline. It was declared an area of outstanding natural beauty in the 1970s, and holds on to this reputation for clean and well-kept countryside even today.
Kessingland is a wonderful spot for lone campers and travelling families alike because it provides several potential accommodation options for holidaymakers. Families with young children or grandparents can opt to stay in the Park Resorts Holiday Park at Kessingland, which combines entertainment and on-site bars with static caravans and other conveniences.
Because it is easily reachable from major cities like Bristol and London, this makes Kessingland a great spot for holidaymakers looking to make their relationship with the spot more permanent; the holiday park welcomes static caravans which can be purchased and embedded in the site for return visits season to season.
For campers who prefer to go a little wilder, there are also several small campsites dotted along the cliffs and bays which are ideal for those looking to explore the Suffolk and Norfolk coastline.
If you are a member of the UK’s camping and caravanning club you’ll also be in for more discounts and savings as you can take advantage of some of its featured sites in the area.
For holidaymakers taking a longer break who want to stay mobile, we recommend a few days on the beach combined with a few days – or even a relaxed week – on a longboat on the Norfolk broads. Travelling through this beautiful waterways is the perfect way to slowdown and reminisce on a great British holiday.
