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.

We visited South Lea Caravan Park on our first-ever camping holiday. We found it to be ideal for our needs and our two children had a great time mixing with the other children in the Play Area.

The owners Louise and Nick were always helpful and their advice about places to visit and things to do was invaluable. They keep a high standard and are very hands-on, which was reflected in the general high standard of the toilets, showers, flower beds etc. They would always stop for a chat, workload permitting.

The Site is very well situated. York was easy to get to using the Park and Ride a few miles away, and the East Coast wasn't very far either. Ditto the Yorkshire Moors.

The nearby small market town of Pocklington was very close with its choice of takeaways, pubs, supermarkets, cinema, swimming etc.

Talking to people at the Site, it seemed to me that nearly everyone had visited South Lea on previous occasions. And my kids are already wanting to go back next year!

This site has restored my faith in camping! Very warm welcome and very secure as there is a barrier to enter that you are given an entry card for. Spacious pitch and very clean toilets and showers that never seemed to be busy. Quite a large site but because it is in separate fields didn't feel too big.
Owners gave us good tourist tips aswell as recommending the italian restaurant and it's early bird menu in Pocklington about a mile away. Couldn't rate the italian restaurant high enough-delicious! Would definitely recommend this site to everyone and will definitely go back.

I booked this campsite after reading excellent reviews and it really lived up to them. We visited SouthLea on our first ever caravan outing and we could not have picked a better one.We stayed 3 nights but really could have stayed longer! Since visiting here we have since visited other campsites dotted around , in a mad 2 week tour! and my 9yr old daughter compared them all to southlea as this is her favourite! She loved the large green play field and easily made friends.

We took our dog and on site is a lovely meadow walk to take dogs. It is a lovely quiet friendly site and the owners cant do enough for you.

The loos/showers spotless and clean and the site is ideally located for visits to York. We had a fab time and would def recommend to others.

A lovely site. Large, flat and very green!

Toilets and showers very clean.

Small playground and large play field which the kids loved.

Very quiet, most noise (of which there was very little) had stopped by 9 o'clock.

The owners were lovely. They popped up and down the site making sure everyone was ok. We stayed here during a very windy few days and after a day out in York, came back to find them re pegging our awning for us! They were even helpful enough to find us a plaster when our daughter fell off her bike, even though they were in the middle of their dinner!

Short driving distance to York and Hull, near Pocklington, with it's cute market and lots of pubs and eateries.

Note: Don't come to this site if you are expecting a clubhouse or bar or Sky tv to watch the match.
