Review – Temporary Holiday Site at Kirkley and Pakefield FC, Pakefield Suffolk


I will often sing the praises of C&CC Temporary Holiday Sites as a cheap and cheerful way to get on holiday.

We travelled down to Suffolk on Bank Holiday Monday with our Conway Cardinal Clubman hoping to miss the Bank Holiday crowds (we rang on Sunday and there were only 4 pitches available). On arrival, there were thankfully plenty of space , the majority at a larger area at the end of the pitch, with a few available along the side. The site was pretty flat and our FC was quickly levelled without the need for ramps.

The THS had the 24-hour use of the toilets and showers in the FC changing rooms, along with fresh water and an Elsan disposal point.

As the site was relatively quiet (only about 10 units) for the majority of the week we were there we never experienced a wait for the toilets or met with anyone else in the communal showers. My only complaint would be that the showers were not at all warm.

The site is ideally placed within about 10 minutes walk of Pakefield cliffs , and a local store, chemist and fish & chip shop nearby. It was an easy, flat walk along the seafront into Lowestoft.

This was a quiet THS, we were left to ourselves (as we like it) and the only noise during our visit was a social evening at the FC clubhouse on the Friday night.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Pakefield – a great location, a peaceful THS and fantastic weather. The THS runs until the 16th June 2017 with NSDA, so maybe time to spend a few days before home-time.
