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.

We stayed her for 3 nights in early July, we were greeted by a very friendly lady who offered us a choice of pitches and gave us some very useful information on places to eat in the area.

The facilities are excellent and never had to wait for a shower or use of a sink in the pot wash area.

Pocklington has a very nice village centre, about 1 mile from the site with a couple of supermarkets and a abundance of smaller shops and places to eat.

York and the coast are both easily accessible from the site, we visited both on separate days and thoroughly enjoyed.

We would definitely recommend this site and we hope to stay there again.

Stayed 2 nights here as visiting York for the weekend.

Was a quiet weekend when we were there even though the weather was hot.

The owners are the nicest campsite owners I have ever met. Very warm and welcoming.

Pitch was immaculate. We used EHU. Think we were the only tent there amongst lots of caravans, but was fine. We had lots of space. A group came on Saturday night who were youngsters doing Duke of Edinburgh and were fantastically well behaved. A real credit to teenagers.

The facilities were lovely and more than adequate for the amount of people there. Showers were lovely.

As has been mentioned, traffic noise is an issue.

Pocklington seemed nice and handy for supermarket. We were using as a base for York though so didn't visit the local area too much.

I'd definitely use again for a weekend away especially if going to York, but despite the high quality site, I'm not sure there would be enough to do to make a whole week of it. It is a very reasonably priced site and despite pointing it out, I am sure they undercharged us. Were more than happy for us to have a pup tent.

Kids loved the playground and lots of room to play football or cricket.
