Well what can I say. As we were in the area we returned to Southlea.

Another excellent 3days, same as last September.

1 night on the grass and 2 nights on hard standing right next to the loo.

Toilet/showers as good as last year.

Louise very helpful again.

Cant fault this campsite one bit. Some people are very picky with their remarks. After leaving here we stayed at a site near Harrigate, then one in Ilkley moor before heading back south. All in all we had 15 nights away 9 different site & southlea was at the top of our list with a couple of others for being excellent.

What a great site!

We stayed there in August and from the warm welcome when we first arrived we knew we were in for a treat. The little reception cabin is full of info on the area and the owners have also put together a couple of folders full of details of where to visit and suggestions on eating out places.

What a refreshing change to find our hard standing pitch was very roomy and backed onto a well maintained flower border. For dog owners there is an enormous meadow where their pooches can stretch their legs, there is even a dog shower, especially useful this summer with the endless sunshine.

The toilet block is kept very clean and is very homely with its flowered tiles and wooden loo seats.

The site itself is very well maintained, with both the owners and their friendly wardens, Heather and Gary, doing their upmost to keep the place looking neat and tidy.

We enjoyed visits to Beverley and York and spent a couple of days exploring the beautiful Wolds which you can see from the site.

This site is a credit to the lovely owners, Nick and Louise. We cannot wait to return to this gem of a site next year!

This was probably the warmest welcome that we have had for a site. Plenty of space between the units and the water and bins are widespread throughout the site. The area was regularly emptied and kept clean as were the toilet block. I was a little concerned at the number of showers but to be honest most of the time despite being a bank holiday the toilets were pretty empty and I never had to wait at all.

Very helpful owners who were keen for all to enjoy the area and very helpful.

I would certainly return to this site.

This is a lovely neat and well looked after site. The owners had a very warm welcome for us. They even offered us the use of a caravan he had in his garden should it be needed as there was a weather warning for storm force winds and heavy rain, however, thankfully this wasn't necessary as our wonderful Vango tent looked after us very well and stood upto the battering. Sadly then it goes downhill. After reading some of the other reviews on this site referring to the seasonal stays I totally agree that its very much a case of 'if your face fits'! Although there are no signs saying 'Adults Only site' it became quite apparent that children (yes children) are welcome providing they are kept on a lead. I also couldn't see any signs saying 'Children on bikes not allowed' but its quite obvious these are also not welcome. Forgive me if I am wrong but isnt camping all about peace and relaxation and enjoying the open space? which applies to both children and adults, Oh my word. Sadly not here.

As I mentioned at the beginning it is a lovely site but unfortunately in the wrong place. There is a constant drone of traffic from the nearby busy A1079 day and night. I would also highly recommend packing your ear defenders for both day and night. After a few mornings of been woken up (0650 hours)by what could only be described as mini bombs going off in the nearby fields and shot guns going off aftr dark (8. 45pm) I began to think we were camping on an army shooting range. The gun shots were very frightening. I called the site owners and they went to investigate. I was told it was farmers 'lamping' although they did say they shouldn't be shooting at that time on an evening. The day before we were due to leave we were sat outside our tent and yet another two very loud shots were fired into the sky from the neighbouring field which was the final straw for us, we packed up and headed home. Needless to say we will not be returning.

Neat and Tidy site. Nice area for dog walking.

Huge place with only a very small ablution block in the centre.

Be aware that you can a long way from from the facilities which can make it really difficult if you have to us them when it is raining or during the night or have mobility problems.

Grass was cut when we were there but not collected. When it rained grass was taken inside one's accommodation.

A very clinical site which lacks any real character or warmth.

Just been to south lea and what a gem this site is. Play area for the children and a small football pitch. Lots of wild rabbits wandering around. The site and toilet and showers were very clean and tidy. Every thing about the whole site and staff were faultless. We will be going again. There are a few pubs nearby who serve good food and supermarkets about a mile away in pocklington and a few shops as well
