• About Beach Retreat

    Just 50 yards from Kessingland’s glorious sand-duned beach and close to the award-winning beaches and traditional fun at Lowestoft, this well-appointed, single-storey holiday property provides an ideal holiday base for families and couples alike.

    Not suitable for 4 adults as accommodation is too small. No street lighting, pitch black after sunset. No amenities on site at all. Accommodation clean and all basic equipment supplied. Including toiletries. Made to feel welcome by owner. Dogs welcome and close to dog friendly beaches . Lots of flys in accommodation if windows left open and horrible smell from sink after using sink. Nice to have a bath but very low and long, had to get out of. No handles to assist. I wanted to leave as it was not what I was expecting. We also wanted two lodges as we wanted to take all 4 of our dogs ... but we had to leave one at home as we could only bring 3. Very disappointed

    A great base to explore the area & other coastal towns. Residents & Holiday makers very friendly. Lovely little beach retreat house plenty big for me & my son's. Added bonus of being a short walk to beach. Will come here again. Going to bring my bike next time!

    We had a good holiday and enjoyed our self's.the chalet was cosy and clean. Close to the beach and near to all the places you like to go. The only downside was the bed was very uncomeatable and a shower would have been nice. Don't let this put you off as I am sure it will be rectified soon.

    Beach Retreat is ideally situated at the end of a cul de sac which means there isn't any through traffic and it is very peaceful. The setree and armchair picture have been replaced by more modern and comfortable leather versions. The cottage and surroundings were very dog friendly and our Bella had a great time. The chalet is very well appointed and we were pleasantly surprised with the welcome pack of wine ,biscuits and dog treats. The property is only 70 yards from a gate which gives access to the beach via a set of steps. We were able to walk Bella along the beach 2 miles to the south to Benacre nature reserve. You could walk 2 miles north to Pakefield also. The local residents were very welcoming. I must mention the local pub,The Sailor's Home - just 300 yards away. 8 real ales and a fantastic Sunday roast. For birdwatchers Minsmere is just 30 minutes by car and Blyth estuary only 15 minutes away. Adnams brewery in Southwold is just 5 miles away. I would thoroughly recommend Beach Retreat and can't wait to return.

    Clean and well equipped if you can live without internet it’s great ,loved the location to beach walks every day. Suffolk community very dog friendly. You get what you pay for . The only thing I would suggest is new mattress as wear and tear had took its toll.

    Beach retreat is brilliant, it's the second time we've been there. The main comment we would make is a 'power shower' or a proper overhead shower in the bathroom would be a great advantage for us.

    Cottage in a good spot not far from beach and walks for dogs but could do with updating slightly
