Just got back from a lovely week here, could not fault a thing about the site and the people on site were all really friendly, owners were very helpful and the site is a credit to them. Every where is clean and tidy and a pleasure to spend time there. Will def be coming back to stay soon. Lots of great places to visit, Whitby, Scarborough, Beverley, York to name just a few. The railway museum is a must and totally free. Pocklington nice little town too and the fish and chips are a must !

Just arrived home from 4 nights at South Lea. From the minute we drove onto the site we knew we had found our ideal place to stay. Site is lovely and what a fantastically friendly lady Louise is (she printed off cycle routes for us and laminated them as she had seen me and the children leaving the site on our bikes one morning!)

The area is also very good, myself and our 2 boys rode our bikes into Pocklington a couple of times. We also visited the local pub which was a few minutes away on foot. York was a pleasant car ride away as was Monks Cross.

The play area on site is great for children and the toilet block lovely and clean.

We have stayed at a lot of sites over the last few months but we loved it here and will definitely recommend to everyone we know and will certainly be returning very soon.

Just returned from a weekend away at this site. It was the best weekend we have had camping. The site is lovely, well kept, toilets and showers immaculate. Nick and Louise are so helpful - Nick helped us out as our electricity unit failed and he lent us one of his.

He even brought it to us the the pouring rain! Nice children's play area. Pocklington very close for shopping and in a great area for the East Coast. Maybe a small shop selling essentials would be nice. Will definitely go back.

Can only reiterate all goods things said about this site. The care that Louise and Nick pay to their site is credit to them. They really care that you are having a good holiday.

Would summarise our stay into pros & cons:-

PROS - lovely rural location and only 1 mile from Pocklington, secure entry system, toilet block and showers always clean, good size pitches, good family site (10:30 quiet time suited us), play area bril (wee man made some great friends), great distance from major attractions (York, Bridlington etc), good meal out within walking distance (Yorkway Sunday carvery great value for money)

CONS - TV signal quite temperamental (bought a satellite dish in the end), no clothes washing facilities.

Both these cons are very much personal preference and may not bother others. Also would not stop me from giving Louise and Nick a 9.9/10 for our 11 night stay and if ever in the area again would definitely be back.

This was our first outing with our Lunar 524 and from arriving on site to leaving the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.We were given a corner pitch with bags of room and space to practice reversing. The toilets and shower facilities are both clean and well kept.

Local Motel Yorkway is a short walk and has a nice beer garden for those hot afternoons.

Pocklington is a short walk but the path ends half way so caution needed when walking. Pocklinton has everything you need from pubs to takeaways and supermarkets.

Booked again for July and will without a doubt be visiting again and again

What a lovely site, it is kept immaculate. The wardens were lovely, very friendly and helpful. Toilets and showers were kept immaculate all the time. Pitches were quite spacious. There was a play area with a football pitch, so we never saw our middle son, he loved it.

There was a pub within a few minutes walk, it was under new management and meals were supposed to be nice, but we never visited the pub so couldn't comment.

Pocklington was only a few minutes by car down the road, with shops, pubs, restaurants and a Sainburys. We were allowed to stay the rest of the day at no extra cost and the site was reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely return.

Reviewer: Eagerbeaver 17 reviews from this member

I am writing this whilst on the site and cannot speak too highly of it. The welcome we received was second to none and as we are only here for two nights in the week we were able to choose our own pitch. The facilities are superb and immaculately clean. The owner was only too pleased to let us have some bricks so we could use our barbecue without damaging the grass. I would agree that it is not a suitable site for the previous reviewer (Sallyp33) who likes late nights and a radio. We manage to have fun without making a noise and disturbing other people and it is reasonable for the site owners to expect this of visitors. I would agree that there is some road noise but it dies down at night and I slept really well. We will definitely come here again. Pocklington is a lovely little town with an assortment of small shops, and there is a pub within walking distance that serves decent food.

Its home to around 50 tourers and a handful of seasonal vans, and a cluster of tents.

The hosts are great, very accommodating and helpful.

Pitch sizes are above average, not cramped at all.

Hot showers (free) and clean toilets, regularly inspected.

All clean and nice there.

Kids play area and ball zone, marshalled to be quiet after 10 pm.

Security barrier access and well lit site at night.

Fish van comes around on a Saturday, selling wet fish!

Close to supermarket, pubs and 40 mins from the coast.

Have stayed here twice this year already and have another couple of stays booked.

Reviewer: Durham liberty 3 reviews from this member

We (me,wife and 2 kids) arrived later that had expected (8pm)for the BH week and were met at reception by Nick the owner who was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know and showed us to the pitch, via a secure barrier operated by a swipe card

The toilets and showers are cleaned everyday by the owners and are immaculate day and night, a mopit is left for you to clean up the sink - a good idea also the note by the light switch!

There was an area in the showers to dry and get dressed.

The play park is more for younger children, but there is a big grassy area where the older ones can exert some energy too- although ours were happy just to cycle round the site!

The owners Nick and Louise are very friendly and helpful and make you feel a part of the family.

The two main roads around the site was busy and you could hear some noise most times, but that did not bother us.

Pocklington has enough shops, Butchers,Fish & chip, bakers etc as well as a couple of supermarkets to keep you feed without having to venture into York if you want.

The site is near a gliding club so you can sit and watch them pass over head when you while away the hours relaxing.

All in all can't fault the site or the owners - thanks for a enjoyable stay

Reviewer: Sallyp33 9 reviews from this member

The site was always booked fully when I rang, so really thought this camp would be a top park. Arrived and was met by the owner, who was really friendly. She told us exactly where to pitch. Owner commment: We do allocate pitches when we are full if you are last to arrive you have to have what there is but we do our best to accomadate requests.

Good meeting place is the play park, although the owner came round on her bike at around 8pm and told all the kids the park is now closed.Owner's comment: our play park closes at 10 or darkness whichever comes first there is no way we would ask anyone to leave before that time.

The pot wash and showers were great and clean. The dog walk field is 7 acres, and good enough. Flat pitches with electric. But at night when all the regular noise had died down, we couldn't believe the noise from the roads!

Just really felt like this was a camp exclusive to her residents and not tenters. Would not recommend for families with a love for late nights whilst camping.
