    Hi all just got back today from 2 weeks in Cornwall / Somerset,
    when in Cornwall stayed in layby about 1mile, before the turning down to
    Sennen cove, few passing cars untill midnight,ish but otherwise very quiet.

    "Think i saw it here about parking in second c/park at Sennen cove
    over night, we were going to but there is a notice just before there saying no
    overnight parking, but the sign at the c/p has no warning so wernt sure which
    one applies, and nobody around to check with????".

    Also noticed a few vans just outside of Helston on Penzance side
    parked up in big layby with toilets, had to have stayed over as
    we went through very early.

    Cheers. :thumb:

    Hi Bigfish, sounds a good one to me. Love Cornwall and can't wait to get back, seems safer than some places for wild camping. Is there a water supply around anywhere as we always use a lot with the dogs etc. My mate says you always get water supplied at the cemeteries, he uses them all the time abroad.

    stop there so not sure of water, have recorded
