The Cliff House Holiday Park sits atop the sprawling Dunwich Beach on the Suffolk Heritage Coast and is located between the nationally-lauded coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh.

The park is flanked on three sides by the  National Trust run Dunwich Heath (with the beach and uninterrupted views of the North Sea taking up the east side). The site is also within walking distance of the acclaimed RSPB Minsmere Bird Reserve.

The 30 acre park comes complete with a newly built bar and restaurant, The 12 Lost Churches, and a shop, as well as an excellent children's play area and a family games room with a numerous pool tables.

Cliff House recently won a David Bellamy Conservation Award and carries a 5 star rating from the East Anglia Tourist Board, which also awarded the site 'Holiday Park of the Year' in 2006. In addition, Cliff House was a runner-up in the 'Best Holiday Park' category in the 2009 Tourism in Suffolk awards.

If you're looking to visit Cliff House with a large group, additional lodges and camping pitches are available for hire all year round. 


Cliff House was built in the 1830s and was purchased by the Horsfall family in the early 1900s. Jock Horsfall was a famous Aston Martin racing driver who stored his collection of cars in what is now the bar area.

During World War II, Jock drove for MI5 and was involved in 'Operation Mincemeat' which was immortalised in the movie, The Man Who Never Was.
During the 1950s Cliff House became a private country club and eventually was transformed into a holiday park.

In 2000, Cliff House was purchased by current site owners, East Anglia's Beeston Group
