We were looking for campsites around the york area and we stumbled across South Lea Caravan park. We decided we were going to try it. We rang up to book the pitch. A very friendly woman answered and we said we would like to book a hard standing pitch and 3 people or possibly 5. She was fine with that and when we tried to pay by card she said they didn't have the facility and we had to pay by cheque.

When we arrived at the site it was really tidy and clean. We got given a card to get in and out. Once all that was sorted we went into the main reception. It was just a shed. In the reception you could buy eggs and bread, they are obviously very trusting because you put money in an honesty box. Also there was leaflets for local attractions and games to hire such as monopoly.

We set up on the pitch and was able to park the car behind. We explored the campsite and found the toilets. Inside was clean and lovely and warm.

There were 4 toilets and 3 showers. We realised we had packed everything except bread. I went to reception to get directions to a shop. The reception was closed so we went on an adventure and found a sainsburys. It was only about 2 minutes in the car. On the way back we saw a pub. The pub was just 30 seconds in the car. In the Night you couldn't hear the near by road.

The next morning I went for a shower and they were really a trickle. Suddenly the power went. We checked the electrical hookup which was fine. It was the fuse.

York is near and a swimming pool near.

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this great caravan site. It is less than an hour from home so is great for a quick chill weekend. The owner Louise is very friendly and helpful and the facilities although small are adequate and kept very clean. There are 3 showers and four toilets and washbasins and a hairdryer in the ladies and my husband said it is the same in the gents, and all the usual waste drain and elsan point and recycling bins all together in one area. There is a children's play area away from the pitches. There is a security barrier with a swipe card which carries no deposit (unless you lose it then it is 10).

The Yorkway Motel which is just 300 yards down the road serves good food at good prices (although we needed a torch on returning as there is no street lighting). We drove into Pocklington to the shops, there is a Sainsburys with an Aldi opposite about a mile from the site and Co-op in the town. Pocklington itself is a delightful quaint place with lots of different shops well worth a stroll around also the parking is free as it is also in nearby Stamford Bridge (please take note other tourist places!). York and the designer outlet are 10 minute drive away.

All in all a great site and we shall be returning when we have a free weekend.

Once again Graham and Louise have excelled themselves, this site just gets better and better, you wont find a friendlier couple anywhere.

Always on hand for any problems which I might add there never is any.

Always time to stop and chat never too busy, yet always on the go, planting, cleaning, doing reception

Toilet and showers are always immaculate.

Pitches are large, very well kept and hardstanding

Site is quiet and has children's play area, an electric card barrier makes it safer than a lot of places.

Sainsburys is half a mile away as is the village of pocklington it has all that you will need, there's quite a few nice pubs in the area and the yorkway motel and restaurant is 200 yards away.

To sum up we will be back every year its got to be one of the nicest sites in the country and its all down to the hard work and friendly attitude of the owners

Arrived mid-afternoon to a warm and friendly greeting from Louise the owner. She offered us a selection of pitches for our tent, and having chosen one of the many well-tended and level pitches on offer, excused myself to find the facilities.

An absolute delight, as one who wild camps quite frequently, I appreciate all the more decent facilities where I find them.

Very clean, tastefully decorated, and a hot shower, with plenty of room for clothes to hang, and a stool to sit on for dressing. Went to the motel on the corner for a very reasonably priced but delicious dinner before returning to the site.

There was a combine harvester in the field next to us which was going up and down until nearly midnight, and the noise from the road was pretty relentless for most of the night.

A shame, because a poor night's sleep spoilt what was otherwise a very pleasant experience. In a caravan I'm sure that the noise is not so bad. In a tent; be warned!

My family of 2 adults and 2 children came to this park after hours of searching. The toilets and showers were immaculate. The site owners were VERY friendly and helpful and suggested places we could go to in Pocklington for food etc.

We had a brilliant time but the only downside was the noise from the road, as it basically the main road to Hull.

We wished to stay another night but unfortunately it was bank holiday and it was fully booked.

Would Highly recommend this site but you may need a pair of earplugs!

Just returned from a very short notice booking at this site. We decided to go on the Thursday night and got a call confirming a cancellation first thing Friday morning.

We arrived to a friendly and helpful welcome, as we had forgotten the mallet, and was shown our pitch which was lovely right next to a willow tree. We were also given information where to eat in the area. The site is spotless and well kept, the toilet and shower facilities are immaculate. We took our dog who loved the very large dog walking area.

You can hear the traffic noise from the road, but it would not stop us from visiting again.
