    just been down to cornwall for a week but was dissapointed with overnight stops hardly any or do you just stop and risk the wheel clampers or pay a fortune on a camp site a lot of the car parks stated overnight rates but no sleeping etc so wont be rushing back down there

    we toured Cornwall last year and found ample overnight parking places, but then we were not looking in town and moved on every day. Maybe that is where you were going wrong. Or could be your van is just too large for that type of holiday in Cornshire, hee hee

    yes you do have to ignore some of the signs ,park a little out of town or sleep on industrial est. there are lots places on the moors or in land .there is also some beaches you can camp on but need a vw or bongo size camper to access them port issac is difficult but polzeath just head towards wadebridge n park in a layby. now is the best time .in summer too many its much harder . small stealth campers have been the way here for years ,blacked out side/rearwindows curtain to block off cab. no lift up roofs but hightops ok.street parking in a stealth is possible even in hight of summer. i use a bongo with blackouts . roll on nov off to spain in the big one luxury. cheers alan.

    Full timing in the van
    we visit cornwall quite often and have found a few places to overnight. marizion you have found. did you know if you get stuck you can also stop on carpark opposite chippy in town for £4. another place we have stayed is on the tops at portreath, very quiet with lovely sea view. try pentrie head overlooking the crantock beach, big carpark says no overnight but people do stay.we have stayed and police have driven on and off no bother. there is also a few places near to the fast food hut and toilets with no restrictions. also campers park outside hotels overlooking fistral beach-we have done so. try asking the local pubs you will find that quite often if you are wanting to eat or a few slurps they are very obliging. car park in small village of st just-no restrictions. hope this has been of help.
