We stopped here for a week and had a great time, the dog walk is great, not many places have an on site dog walk. The toilets and showers were very clean, the owners are very friendly and informative about the area, only downside is that you would have to drive in to Pocklington, if a footpath could be created this would make all the difference. Pocklington has some really nice places to eat and drink, there is a large supermarket and a car boot was held in the carpark, whilst we were there. It has a playground for the children plua a large field for them to run wild, play football etc. I would recommend this site it is great for couples and children

This is a lovely spacious clean site, upon arrival you come to the entry barriers and check in with the site warden who was extremely friendly and helpful you are then given a fob key for the barriers to entre in and out.

The site is well maintained with attractive plantings and a children's playpark.

The toilets, showers were clean and tidy.

We went on the park and ride bus to York which is easier than driving into the City and only cost 3.50 each, it took about 20 mins. The town of Pocklington is only about 15 mins walk away and worth a look round.

Just spent 3 nights at South Lea, Louise was very friendly and helpful from booking to checking in and gave information on surrounding area.

As I had my 2 children with me we were offered a huge EHU pitch on the edge of the play area which was fab for the kids and they made friends, but at the same time I could keep an eye on them.The ground was flat but quite muddy (glad I had a good mat inside the awning).

The ladies toilet/showers were really clean and although the showers are free (plus point) they are very poor pressure and the water goes everywhere but on you. Good size cubicle and your clothes don't get wet.

The site is really big and it seems appeals greatly to caravans (which are lined up like soldiers in a row)and it appeared that a lot of people keep their caravans there on a permanent basis.

I didn't feel that it was safe to walk into Pocklington from the site, it is along a busy unlit straight road with no pavement until you get closer to the centre.

You have to use your car whenever you want to go anywhere this site is really only a base camp but is ideally situated for visiting the surrounding areas.

The only downfall I found and I am so surprised that this has not been mentioned in other reviews, is the fact that there is a major 'A' road running along the side of the site. There is only an open field separating you from this so does absolutely nothing to protect your ears from the noise.

Lovely peaceful site, friendly staff who gave us advice on the nearby town. We walked and yes there is no pavement but with two children and a puppy I was fine.

The toilets are really clean as is all the site. Pitches big and most have EHU.

We travelled to Flamborough which was lovely takes you back to your child hood although nothing had changed.

We will be going back this year.

We have just returned from a four night stay at this site. We decided to try South Lea based on the reviews we read and were luckily able to get onto the site despite booking late and liked it the moment we arrived.

Louise greeted us and showed us the various places we could pitch our tent, gave us the welcome leaflet which had the rules of the site and some info on a local gp, vet etc and also suggested some places in pocklington for take out etc, there were also some picnic tables and benches dotted about the park and Louise showed us one that wasn't being used that we could move to our pitch which was fantastic.

The park itself was immaculate, a lot of attention to detail has gone into the set up of it, the block which housed the showers/toilets and washing up area seems very central to the whole of the camp and you are never too far away from a water point.

There is a huge area for children to play in, the actual play equipment was too big for my two toddlers to get full use of but they had a good go and enjoyed just running around between the goal posts anyway.

There is lots to do and see in the surrounding area, we went to Castle Howard (40mins by car) and Bridlington(45mins) which has a lovely stretch of beach and a lovely little shop called beachcomber which had some nice little bits and pieces and would recommend a visit to both if you haven't already been. We luckily had beautiful weather for our stay.

We have no negatives for the site or its owners and are planning a return trip next year.

I have just returned from a 3 day stay at this site and found it to be one of the best I have stayed at.

All pitches are flat and of a good size and very well maintained.

The shower block was always clean and tidy no matter what time you went in.

They have a small play area which was suitable for my childs needs.

The only thing that I think this site needs is possibly a small shop on site where you could get some basics but Poklington is only a 5min drive away.

In the local area there is Poklington which is a lovely little town with everything that you need.

Also worth a visit there is Burnby hall and gardens which has a large lake where your kids will just love to feed the carp which come right up to the waters edge.

All in all can't wait to return.
