My husband, daughter of 9, our westie, Dougal and I have just returned from this fantastic park. We were met at reception by the owner who was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know as well as there being lots of tourist leaflets for us to take. We were also given some recommendations as to where we could eat out.

Our pitch was hardstanding with electric and close waterpoints. We had plenty of room for our awning as well as the car. The playpark was excellent and can be seen from most pitches around the park. My daughter spent most nights playing until it was getting dark.

The toilets and showers were absolutely immaculate day and night and had no cobwebs! The showers were lovely and had an area where you could dry and get dressed, with plenty of door hooks and a stool. A hairdryer was available if needed.

There was a huge dog area where you can let your dog run free which Dougal absolutely loved as he doesn't do being tied up.

The park is situated a mile from the lovely town of Pocklington and is only a half hour drive to York with it various attractions. We also visited Beverely which was lovely. There is a hotel, The Yorkway, very close by serving excellent food in nice surroundings and has a pool table, darts and television. Only problem there are no footpaths to and from the park.

All in all we had a great week at South Lea and would definitely stay there again if we were going to return to the area.

Reviewer: Michael1960 1 review from this member

We first visited in 2006, when we returned in 2009 the site was as immaculate if not better, beautifully maintained with obvious attention to detail that raises the bar in the area. It's the best site in the area, easily located just off the A1079 which comes off the A64.

It's a great location close to York which of course has much to offer, but also a short drive from places such as Scarborough, Whitby, too many to mention with numerous heritage sites, museums, not to mention some of the best beaches in the UK.

The toilet block is excellent, the site is very family / child friendly with a large safe central play area with plenty of space even when the site is full.

There are good shops and supermarkets in Pocklington just up the road which also has a good library. There is a pub next door. Nick and Louise are always welcoming and helpful I think they always go the extra mile when it comes to their guests, which is great, we all know there are many sites where you have to find out stuff for yourself, cant find help when you need it, hardly ever see the owners / wardens. This isn't one of them it's exactly what you want clean, friendly, help is on hand if needed, it's well maintained, clean, well located, loads to do in the vicinity, if you want a good base for visiting the area and the East Riding this is it.

This is an excellent site which we first visited in June 2006 and have revisited many times since then. The owners Nick and Louise are very friendly and helpful and give everyone a warm welcome.

South Lea is easily accessible from the A1079, turning onto the B1247. The site is attractively laid out with well-maintained flower beds and borders. The toilet block is exceptionally clean with free showers and hair dryers. There is an external (under cover) pot-washing facility and adjacent recycling bins.

For children there is an adventure-style play area. Dogs are welcome and there is a dog-walking area on the site.

The nearby motel has a restaurant/bar which is open to non-residents. Nearest supermarket is a mile away on the edge of Pocklington, a lovely little market town with character. Pocklington is at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, a beautiful area with pretty villages. York is a short drive away (Park and Ride available) or take a bus from Pocklington. A visit to the nearby Burnby Hall Gardens is recommended, as is a stroll along the nearby Pocklington Canal.

Reviewer: Weejanet 33 reviews from this member

Spent three nights in this lovely site. Very well kept. Very clean shower toilet block. Kids play area looked good. Loads of information, magazines and books at reception. We took the advice of the owner and ate at the Italian which had an early bird offer, great! Lots to see and do in area. We used the park and ride from the designer outlet into York centre and it was certainly easier than trying to park in the town centre plus you can have a wee look round the Designer outlet. Too many things to see and do in York that we could not fit all in so we will just have to go back another time, and of course we will stay at this caravan site again.

Best campsite we have stayed at yet. Stopped 3 nights. It was busy but didn't feel busy as there was plenty of room. Pitches very level and well cared for very good lighting and plenty of water points 1st class free showers and toilets. The only bad thing is the footpath into Pocklington doesn't go all the way to the site it stops about 100m from it something I think the owners could possibly get the local council to sort out. Plenty of shops in Pocklington and York just a half hour bus ride away. Owners really helpful Will definitely return.

We visited for three days of mainly dry but windy weather. The site is easy to reach and has good access to York (12 miles). The reception was very friendly and helpful - couldn't have been better. The site is spacious, flat and very presentable.

We were pitched on firm grass with good holding for tent pegs in a field sheltered on all sides by trees and hedges. Toilets were clean and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Dishwashing facilities are also provided.

Pocklington is a five minute bike ride away, along a B-road but note that there is no pavement for the first 500 metres if you want to walk. Nice little market town with a few pubs, hotels, coffee shops and a good supermarket. There is an airfield immediately next to the town with very active gliding club but we weren't bothered by aircraft noise.

Excellent country round about for cycling - flat to south, hilly to north. Beverley (20 miles) is a great destination.
