    My wife wanted to visit Lyme Regis on our current Devon trip so of course I checked the Britstops book for somewhere we could park up overnight without having to shell out for a site.

    Found this place very easily parked up at the end of the large car park and wandered into the shop to say hello. This is a large farm shop that sells a wide range of local produce plus a variety of French cheeses. There are also plenty of tinned goods on sale direct from France. There is a cafe which sells snacks and cakes.

    We like to spend some money with our Britstops hosts, though this is not compulsory of course. At this stop we bought some cheese, pate, bread and several bits and pieces but still only spent just over a tenner - cheap for a place to park overnight safely.

    Thanks for these reviews Paul. Very useful.

    I think that the BritStops scheme is brilliant and well worth the membership fee. I'm not sure I would ask to park overnight unless I knew my host was a member of the scheme as I'd feel awkward.

    @BritStops I have thought about this a couple of times. It would be really handy if there was somewhere that we could leave short reviews of our stays at the Britstops. Just a thought :D

    Easyliving. Pleased to see you enjoyed Britstop 44. As I suggested to them that they should join Britstops.
    Hope you had a ride on the Seaton to Colyton tram? Why not come again in June and visit my home town of Colyton on Saturday 13 June for the "rebellion".

    Britstops best thing since sliced bread, we use them all the time and found the owners very Helpfull. Always buy a couple beers or a meal as eating out is part of my holidays.

    Exactly my thoughts.. Ideal for an overnight stop.. (y)

    why pay £12 or more just to park on some grass at a CL .. .. or even more on a commercial site ..

    .. of course you could pay £18 to park at a MSA and have the pleasure of the intoxicating smell of urine to greet you in the morning.. :rolleyes:

    Les is part of the fb group - however due to the way that fb works it's impossible (I believe) to seach by a britsop number. If there is a way I'd be grateful if someone could tell me how to do it.
    Cheers

    I think the problem is that you review by the Britstop number and that changes every year, so the reviews would quickly get very confusing - no.44 in last years book is in Somerset.

    I joined britstops this year and used two stops when out at Easter, and will be using another two next week. A great idea.

    Some of them are in interesting places and not just pubs.
