 Fantastic! Owners are hard working. Site is ideal for walking.

The site is so well looked after its unbelievable, and really good value for money,

Each pitch has its own clean water tap adjacent to the ehu,

Only thing is I wish they were open all year round but come next season will 100% be going back

 An excellent campsite, clean, tidy, well maintained with nice showers and facilities.

Very nice staff with excellent customer friendly communications. As we were tent camping, we appreciated that the ground was flat and soft enough to get the pegs in easily!

The picnic bench was also very handy!

The site is well situated with a restaurant within 5 minutes walking distance.

 Just returned from a lovely 4 day break at this fantastic caravan park, with our two dogs. Although it was Mid-August (with brilliant weather), the site was lovely and quiet.

The setting is beautiful and the grounds lovingly maintained. We were the only tent on the camping field ( as we didn't require electric) and had lots of space on our pitch, which included our own wooden picnic table.

There was only one other tent that we saw on the electric pitches and the rest were mainly caravans and motor homes. The shower and toilet block were immaculate and there was a 'Covid friendly' system in place, to make sure only 2 people in the block at one time.

The wardens were very friendly and so helpful in advising us of great dog walks in the area and lent us a map so we could navigate properly!

The area is perfect for walking with, or without dogs and most start only a short drive away from the site. We were amazed at how many free parking places there were at the start of many of our walks!

South Lea Caravan Park is definitely a site we will return to and highly recommend, especially if you have dogs. The site had a fantastic dog walk, which took up nearly a whole field, with an additional enclosed area too with a bench for the humans!

Our dogs absolutely loved running free in here sniffing the trails of previous visitors and couldn't wait to get in there, even after a 12 mile walk earlier in the day!

The town of Pocklington is a few minutes drive away ( we didn't fancy walking on the grass verge alongside the road with dogs, as it was very busy) with Sainsbury's and Aldi for provisions and many takeaways that will deliver to the site also.

Highly recommend this friendly site!

 First time here, just wanted a short break at short notice. The site is lovely. First impressions are great grass well tended and pitches neat and not on top of each other.

The showers and toilets are spotless and closed twice a day for thorough cleaning. Covid friendly.

The other campers mainly seasonal were so friendly.

Will definitely be booking again but longer next time. Thanks

 Fantastic site. Clean, tidy and well maintained. Felt safe with COVID restrictions in place.

We will be visiting here again very soon. As we have a camper we decided to use the local transport to venture around Yorkshire

Bus stops outside of main gates, so itís easy to travel and visit other places while staying at South Lea farm.

 A couple of days prior to visiting we received a call from the site wardens just to confirm that we were going and a secure link to pay for our stay.

The site was easy to find and well laid out with plenty of open space around the pitches.

There is a bus stop outside the entrance with buses to York every half hour or to Hull, Beverley or Bridlington every hour.

We can't pass comment on the facilities as they were still closed due to covid restrictions.

All in all an excellent place to stay.

 Very pleasant staff answering phone, money was taken by what seemed to be a resident in the adjacent field, not many pitches which added to the ambiance, the guy showed us to our pitch, took our money (£22 a night ) he was very pleasant, told us where facilities were, had a bench adjacent to pitch, not far to water, facilities dated but spotless. Even a hair dryer in the gents !

Itís all grass, a bit muddy but nowt to write home about.

A short walk through the adjacent site takes you to the Ship inn with an eclectic mix of clientele, didnít eat there but smelled nice, bus stop outside Ship, bishopthorpe up the road for papers. Three more pubs there plus a butcher, whatís not to like ?

Would we go again. For sure, but wouldnít follow sat nav, if coming up A64 take the turning after the ring road turnoff and go past the college and straight through bishopthorpe.
