    We want to take the MH out for a spin on Sunday to the Kent coast. Any suggestions please for some nice car parks or parking spots, without height barriers, ideally overlooking the sea.

    You can park on the road running along Tankerton slopes, just out of Whitstable towards Herne Bay but you would need to arrive early to get a space. You cannot sleep overnight there. Good view of the sea, the sailing boats etc and an easy walk into Whitstable for the shops, cafes and harbour.

    There is a car park opposite Walmer Castle with access to a coastal path but it does close in the evening so you have to check the times
    The Esplanade at Dover (pay and display)
    St Margaret's Bay - small MH recommended to get down to it
    There is plenty of parking along the front at Herne Bay
    Royal Esplanade, Ramsgate

    If I think of any more I'll let you know

    Hi Joyce & Brian
    We thought of that one, but you have to park very close to the wall to allow traffic to pass OK, and our door is on UK side. And the road is too fast to risk parking the other way with the drivers door by the wall. You're swinging your hab door out into the oncoming traffic. Unless we were to just sit and gaze, of course!

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions so far. Very helpful.

    Not sure what part of the Kent coast you want but if you fancy the Isle of Sheppey there are a couple of places you can park up.

    The first is a car park at Warden Bay which overlooks the sea. We've seen vans parked up overnight there quite regularly in the summer.

    The other place is along the sea wall past Leydown, but no view of the sea from the van but not far away.
