Kessingland is a large village situated on the Suffolk coast only 4 miles away from the popular town of Lowestoft and a 15 minute drive from Southwold. Kessingland is both a popular family holiday destination and also an area of the highest historical importance. It has been an area of intense interest to archaeologists as Palaeolithic and Neolithic tools and implements have been found here and the remains of an ancient forest lie buried on the seabed. Offering a stunning unspoilt sandy beach perfect for those sunny summer days or those chilly winter walks to Benacre Nature Reserve. The town is home to many local shops, a restaurant called The Waterfront, which, as it’s name implies, is right on the beach. There’s also a very friendly pub called The Sailors Home. In addition to a large and welcoming bar, the pub has a restaurant. The village also offers Africa Alive wildlife park. A firm favourite for any family holiday.
