    Hi, I'm trying to find somewhere to stopover for one night after leaving Castle Combe, will be heading back down motorway to Sunny Devon. Will have the competition car on trailer behind motorhome & don't really want to have to drive home in one hit. Any suggestions please? :) Don't have to have hook up, just somewhere safe to park up for the night.

    Take the short route through trowbridge to the a303 rather than M4/M5 and there are a bunch of laybys set back from the road that seem to be regularly used for that purpose.

    Portishead, just a couple of miles off the M5. At The Esplanade you wake up to wonderful
    views of the Severn estuary and Wales in the distance.
    We often stop there on the way to Cornwall.
    Lots of free places to park up.

    thanks. I'll research those, got to be somewhere fairly safe as it's a very expensive car ;)

    Have you stayed at Portishead recently as we understood they were putting parking restrictions in.?
