Excellent time at this site visited this site around five times. Owners of this site very helpful as are all the staff. Toilets and shower block always clean. Lovely walks around the lake and plenty to do on the lake my son/daughter and I like kayaking and windsurfing. Pocklington is just a five minute drive which is handy for supermarkets and to walk round. Lovely large playground for children to play in my six year old loved it. Will definitely be returning.

Just returned from this site stayed for the august bank holiday friday - monday, found the site no problem on entering reception pay ten pounds for electronic fob for gate had a bit of problem finding the post that operates the barrier as its set back which means as I was alone in car had to get out open gate rush in car and hope barrier did not come down before getting van through. Nice flat level gravel pitches, water and electric post just to rear of pitch. It is mainly static tourers on the park but we were a party of five vans all parked beside each other. Only fault I found toilet facilities male/female all in same wooden hut only two toilets each and one shower each not enough for size of site although they were kept clean, wash up facilities in same hut. The play park and lake facilities we used and all enjoyed, nice walks around the lakes and visits to the on site collection of animals. No on site shop and no shop in walking distance a bit of drawback if there for longer stay cafe on site sells pop and ice cream.

We went with another family and arrived late (7pm) we managed to squeeze through the entrance as one of the main gates was locked, only to encounter another barrier. There seem to be a high volume of seasonal pitches and kindly one of the families there found the site Manager.

He was very pleasant but we were shocked at the 30! deposit for the barrier card. Once we got in, we were escorted to the bottom end and sited next to a log cabin. We were asked to be mindful of them as they pay a lot in site fees and this is their home.

We noticed there were three pitches hidden away in the straw/grass to which was at the bottom end. We had electric hook up and the taps were close-by.

There was an embankment at the rear of us which our 10 & 11 year olds treat like a slide and there was a sandpit which our friends 4 & 6 year olds enjoyed. We did have to remove the copious amounts of rabbit droppings first.

We enjoyed watching the people windsurfing and boating on the lake but owing to them being quite far to the other side, we took a paddle and were ordered out for 'frightening the wildlife!' we returned to the sandpit and stayed there, dragging our chairs etc there as the grass near our pitches was too long and sharp by your legs to sit within.

We hardly saw anyone whilst we were there, it has a very quiet atmosphere. It is handy for us at only 15 mins from home but at 22 per night is quite expensive for what you get.

There was a shower/loo block with one of each for male and female being more or less in front of the log cabins and was adequate, the base of the shower is pot and very slippery but my main concern was the water was very, very hot! You had no way of controlling the heat and we couldn't find anyone on site to tell once the surf shack/cafe was closed.

When we returned the barrier key on our departure we were ignored by the cafe staff, when I finally got her attention I was barked at and found the ladies quite rude!

I have since learnt that the site is up for sale which explains the unkempt grass on the pitches and the lack of care in the shower temperature and overall appearance of the site. If you are looking to come here, please bear this in mind.

Our second visit here. This year our children are 15 months and nearly 4yr and they hada fab time walking round the 2 lakes, feeding the fish and playing in the play area. There was plenty of room to run around by the tent. Everyone on the campsite, mainly seasonal caravanners, were very friendly.

Facilities were spotless, cleaned at least 3 times a day. Showers are on the hot side though.

Only 5 min drive to sainsbury and the local town of Pocklington.Though, apart from supermarket, we had no need to leave the site.

We love this site and will be back.

Just had the best weekend camp ever, the site was stunning, well kept, very friendly and clean. The kids loved the lake and water sports which we didn't think were too pricey. They are opening a course fishing lake in the future which will enhance the site even more.

Even with the glorious weather this weekend it was not busy on the tent field so plenty of space to run around. We cannot wait to go again.

We had a good time here in October. My husband and 10-yr-old son went sailing on the first day, which they greatly enjoyed despite DS capsizing! However, once you get the measure of the sailing dinghies the excitement palls. We went to the National Railway Museum the next day and around York which was great. The site seemed to be almost entirely occupied by seasonal pitches with few inhabitants at the time so it was very quiet. Lovely and clean but perhaps a bit too twee for our taste. The electricity cut out several times despite us not running high-use items (only a v small kettle and heater running on only 1kW. The lights in the toilet and washing facilities are on sensors and a timer so if you stay too long at night you get plunged into darkness, so don't take the paper to read while sitting in state! This was especially irritating when washing up as the sensor could not detect I was in there so the lights always went off halfway through washing up and I had to leave the sink and walk to the door to reactivate them. Staff very helpful and the cakes in the coffee shop are yummy. The walks around the lake are nice but only take about 5 minutes to do.
