Reviewer: Eagerbeaver 17 reviews from this member

I am writing this whilst on the site and cannot speak too highly of it. The welcome we received was second to none and as we are only here for two nights in the week we were able to choose our own pitch. The facilities are superb and immaculately clean. The owner was only too pleased to let us have some bricks so we could use our barbecue without damaging the grass. I would agree that it is not a suitable site for the previous reviewer (Sallyp33) who likes late nights and a radio. We manage to have fun without making a noise and disturbing other people and it is reasonable for the site owners to expect this of visitors. I would agree that there is some road noise but it dies down at night and I slept really well. We will definitely come here again. Pocklington is a lovely little town with an assortment of small shops, and there is a pub within walking distance that serves decent food.

Its home to around 50 tourers and a handful of seasonal vans, and a cluster of tents.

The hosts are great, very accommodating and helpful.

Pitch sizes are above average, not cramped at all.

Hot showers (free) and clean toilets, regularly inspected.

All clean and nice there.

Kids play area and ball zone, marshalled to be quiet after 10 pm.

Security barrier access and well lit site at night.

Fish van comes around on a Saturday, selling wet fish!

Close to supermarket, pubs and 40 mins from the coast.

Have stayed here twice this year already and have another couple of stays booked.

We (me,wife and 2 kids) arrived later that had expected (8pm)for the BH week and were met at reception by Nick the owner who was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know and showed us to the pitch, via a secure barrier operated by a swipe card

The toilets and showers are cleaned everyday by the owners and are immaculate day and night, a mopit is left for you to clean up the sink - a good idea also the note by the light switch!

There was an area in the showers to dry and get dressed.

The play park is more for younger children, but there is a big grassy area where the older ones can exert some energy too- although ours were happy just to cycle round the site!

The owners Nick and Louise are very friendly and helpful and make you feel a part of the family.

The two main roads around the site was busy and you could hear some noise most times, but that did not bother us.

Pocklington has enough shops, Butchers,Fish & chip, bakers etc as well as a couple of supermarkets to keep you feed without having to venture into York if you want.

The site is near a gliding club so you can sit and watch them pass over head when you while away the hours relaxing.

All in all can't fault the site or the owners - thanks for a enjoyable stay

Reviewer: Sallyp33 9 reviews from this member

The site was always booked fully when I rang, so really thought this camp would be a top park. Arrived and was met by the owner, who was really friendly. She told us exactly where to pitch. Owner commment: We do allocate pitches when we are full if you are last to arrive you have to have what there is but we do our best to accomadate requests.

Good meeting place is the play park, although the owner came round on her bike at around 8pm and told all the kids the park is now closed.Owner's comment: our play park closes at 10 or darkness whichever comes first there is no way we would ask anyone to leave before that time.

The pot wash and showers were great and clean. The dog walk field is 7 acres, and good enough. Flat pitches with electric. But at night when all the regular noise had died down, we couldn't believe the noise from the roads!

Just really felt like this was a camp exclusive to her residents and not tenters. Would not recommend for families with a love for late nights whilst camping.

We visited this site again (probably our 6 or 7th time) over the Easter weekend for 3 nights and as usual everything was fantastic. The site has great security with a barrier at the entrance / exit (activated by key card).

As usual we were warmly welcomed and shown to where we were to set up. The pitch, as with all was perfectly flat with electrical hook up. We set up next to our in-laws caravan which is sited there permanently and had a fantastic weekend.

The toilet/Shower block is excellent with plenty of toilets and nice hot showers. These facilities are cleaned very regularly so are immaculate all the time even in the muddiest of weather. There is also a large dog walking area and a nice play area for kids.

Whenever we go here we love it and would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be going there again in the not too distant future.

Visited for the Easter weekend which was our second visit to this excellent site. From the initial telephone enquiry & booking to the meet and greet at the site you are treated as the most important visitor they have had. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, they are always pleasant and helpful.

The site is kept immaculate and the toilets and showers are clean at anytime of day or night. The only downside to the showers is if you do not get in early you will not get much hot water.

The town of Pocklington is about a mile away and is very old world and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring its many shops. York and the East Coast are both within easy driving distance. The Yorkway Hotel a short walk away is very welcoming with good food and drink.

Like I said this is our second visit and will not be our last.
