    We've been away for almost a week now and both my fishing rods and metal detector have stayed in the locker due to lack of opportunity. Tomorrow morning we're moving on and I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for sites, or overnight stops, between Marazion and Exeter alongside the seafront.

    The Ayre Holiday park in St Ives overlooks the sea but no direct access to beach, also quite expensive.
    Pentewan Sands Holiday Park on the Mevagissey road from St Austell is at the back of the beach. No idea on cost.
    They are not far from where you are but Cornwall is a bit short on coast side sites.
    Even these two are away from the main route to Exeter.

    hi, if you have time just keep the sea on your right and follow the coast stay as close to the sea as possible .there are a few nice places to stay not on sites but ok. cornwall and devon. lots of carparks by the sea.

    can get a bit noisy w/ends but never had any trouble.

    Thanks, but is it still allowed?

    I read recently on another site that Exmouth have now put the block on overnighting after complaints from residents.

    Pentewan is no good for fishing. Why not go on down into Mevagissey. There is a site to the right, just at the bottom of the hill. It's then just a few minutes walk to the harbor and better fishing by the lighthouse. I was brought up in Meva. It's a lovely village, but totally unsuitable for motor homes to drive through, so be warned about that. Park and walk in. :Smile:

    You can stay in the Car Park at Mevagissey for the Night. It cost me 10 quid last summer.

    Yes, carpark at mevagissey is good, a town that actually helps and encourages motorhomes!!! very helpful man there, its now £12 we were there at easter, but didnt actually stop the night in the end, theres even an indian restaurant next to it!

    we stopped on a fantastic site at portscatho, minutes walk across fields to the headland and about 10 mins to walk into the village.There is a shop there that sells everything!

    Very few hardstands and quite basic facilities, but clean! very helpful owners who are also very laid back and want you to chill!

    Its called Treloan ..you approach it along side a pub that doesnt look like a road, we couldnt find it a first! its also known locally as arthurs field!

    loved it there!!!

    Try Henry's Campsite

    at the Lizard - it's VERY different to those we usually stay at... stayed there last year and not cheap but the coastal walk is great... and the lighthouse...

    see http://www.henryscampsite.co.uk/

    The campsite at the Gardens of Heligan is very good - and is not expensive. They have a BATHroom - with a bath! See http://www.heliganwoods.co.uk/

    If Devon includes N Devon you can stop overnight in the privately-owned car park next to the caravan site at Putsborough Sands, bottom end of Woolacombe Bay. The last couple of miles to the site are along narrowish lanes, but if caravans can do it I'm sure a motorhome can. The beach is lovely - photo here.

    Harlyn Bay, near Padstow. They allow camping on the beachside there. Had a customer stay there all week a few years back - he loved it! Fell out of his door onto the beach and went for a swim, then returning for breakfast!

    this will not work for a large Motorhome

    OK.. this is no good for a large motorhome.. but it is on the beach.

    West of Looe on the South Coast... take the A387 West up the hill.. follow the road until you get to the cross roads at the B3359 go to next cross road (short distance) turn left head down the lane via small hamlet of Porthallow the road goes over cross road... scierder lane then in to Porthallow, it turns a bit then drops down in to Tallard Bay.. there is a parking area in front of the Tallard Bay beach cafe and have parked in there myself in a car.. you will be Ok with a smallish motorhome.. it is right on the beach.. polperro is just up the way... there is a foot path come lane (to small for a motorhome... have done it on a motorbike... called Bridals Lane and that takes you pass the end of the Killigath Camp site and down in to Polperro...

    the sat details are N50 20' 14. 86" x W 4 29' 50. 93"

    A little gem

    Bob
