This is a beautiful site and a credit to how hard the owners work.

The toilet block is exceptional, the whole area is very clean and well kept. There is obviously a programme of planting going on with lots of new trees which will provide a lovely walkway.

Our dogs loved the special area set aside for them and we loved the space between the units.

We will definitely be going back to the site and couldn't speak highly enough of either it or the extremely friendly and helpful owner.

We are 'residents' at South Lea and have been for perhaps six years, Nick and Louise are a super couple. What to say about South Lea, well it's close to home for us - we go most weekends, the showers are hot,free and most importantly CLEAN. We love the dog walk (between the four of us we have eight Cavalier King Charles Spaniels - they are all welcomed and often prove to be a visitor attraction.

We have great BBQ's - Nick has a BBQ for hire if you don't want to take yours.

It is close to York and the East Coast resorts of Bridlington and Scarborough with Whitby not much further. Pocklington is the closest little town with a good selection of pubs and restaurants.

Go soon . Do, we shall back just after Easter.

We have been to South Lea on a few occasions and have always been made to feel very welcome. Nick & Louise who run the site are very friendly, so you won't want to leave. The area is so beautiful that we have now moved to one of the villages, but this will not stop us from visiting South Lea. There is a fantastic area for walking your dogs and the washing facilites are second to none. Roll on the first of march.

Reviewer: Lozzie 11 reviews from this member

First visit to this beautiful, quiet, rural, site, the owners were fantastic and really helpful as we were first timers. The site is perfect if you have a dog as their is specific dog walking areas. The toilets and showers are immaculate and the play area good for the children without being too near to the vans to disturb people or too far away to watch your child. The pitches are flat and of a good size.You can hire a gas barbecue for £6 a night complete with the gas from the owners who deliver it to your van and pick it up again. Pocklington is 5 minutes down the road by car, and york approx 20 minutes away. Will definetely return to this site again,

Reviewer: Gazza100 3 reviews from this member

Friendly owners who were very helpful

Nice flat site, good pitches although slightly close together

Well cut grass & nice flowers in borders

Good facilities with hot showers , clean sinks & toiletsand easy access water & waste points

Good kids play area with football pitch

Pocklington has Sainsbury's & good shopping / cheap beer shop !

Only criticism was slightly noisy main road although if you are pitched in second field not as obvious

Will definitely go again

We had 5 great nights at this excellent site. Our hosts Louise and Nick were very helpful(Thanks for the use of the car ramps for an emergency repair job to my exhaust on the car) and friendly.
The site is very well kept and the toilets were excellent.
Our son Sam enjoyed the play area. Anybody looking to explore this area would have a brilliant base if they were to stay at Southlea. We will definitely be back very soon.

Reviewer: Sulwath 1 review from this member

Just returned from South Lea and must agree with other visitors that this is a wonderful site.  Both Nick and Louise make you feel really welcome and they just seem to work from dawn to dusk keeping the site in very good order.  The site is both very flat and also based on chalk land so if there is any heavy rain it disappears in a flash so I'm told.  If your in the area of Pocklington and want a very good site this is the one.

Just stayed for a long weekend at south lea-this was our second visit - we last stopped 2 weeks ago & we were so impressed we went back again! Nothing is too much trouble for Louise who is friendly & very helpful.The pitchers are well spaced, will situated & very flat. The whole site is well organised & well suited to quiet breaks as a couple or family breaks. The toilet block is the best I have ever seen on a site with lots of hot water. I would recommend this site to anyone-we will be back there in a couple of weeks.

Reviewer: Yeshouse 5 reviews from this member

What a nice site! The best sanitair on our holiday and a good pitch near to the children-play area. The bus to York stops on request at the front of the campsite for a nice day out. In Pocklington you can get everything you want.
Very friendly owners. Only critics: Noise of the main roads nearby.

Reviewer: Longeaton 1 review from this member

Well what can I say?  The pitch was perfect, the owners extremely friendly, the toilets were spotless, the campsite was quiet, the information in 'the hut' was bountiful.  The only downer was the weather which couldn't be helped.  We don't have a dog but the dog walk was so clean that we were able to walk round it without any fear of any mess.  We will definitely be returning and very soon!
We only visited Pocklington on the way home (Recommend The Feathers for their carvery!) I am looking forward to coming back and exploring the shops!
