    You can park in the old cattle market car park now called queen street cark park, behind Royal Mail sorting office. Its in the centre of town with dedicated motorhome slots. Tesco extra also allow parking of motorhomes, I have parked my tag axle in there, it's a 5 minute walk into town & I believe you can park at the train station, normal parking fees apply.

    You can park down by the tennis centre in Barnstaple. As you were in Bideford if you had gone to appledore you can park in the main car park overnight right next to the estuary.

    North Devon council is one which has specific information for motorhomes after being asked to publish it.

    Always pays to check Motorhome Parking :whistle::D

    @stephen harwood
    Regardless of the problems you encountered with parking at Barnstable, I reckon it worked to your benefit. I think Bideford has lots more to offer than Barnstable. A lovely town.
    Stef.
