    I'm always looking for somewhere to stop and put the kettle on. I travel on the A470 through the Brecons quite regularly and there are tons of places to stop and no matter what the weather, or how much of a hurry I'm in, I always stop.

    I stopped for a cuppa here on Monday, and climbed the bank opposite to get a pic of my 320 watts of solar panels:Smile:

    Stopping somewhere with a bit of a view and having a cup of tea is a delight that even after years of motorhoming I never tire of. Is there a road you travel where you just have to stop and have a brew?

    Yes Jim :thumb:That is one of a couple of car parks within a mile of each other looking out over Whitby and the sea :thumb:If you carry on to the top of the hill and turn right towards Gothland (Heartbeat) there is a great wild camping spot looking down towards Gothland :thumb:

    There is an aire near Carcasson (sic) that you can pull into and get a great view of the town below. Stopped there about 5 times now en route to Spain.

    Just before you get to Morgan Porth, travelling from Newquay, there is a layby that overlooks the Bay!

    At West Pentire right at the end theres a large Car park the view from there is awesome!

    That is a lovely spot! Stopped there a few years back, only spoiled by the lovely children of Merthyr throwing bricks as you passed!:Rofl1:

    They have hopefully grown up now....and stopped throwing bricks!:BigGrin:

    One view I miss from the Weymouth area http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulinuk99999/3963321112/

    Always like to stop and look there!

    I think its a bit too far into the Beacons for many from Merthyr, considering the claim that 60+% are on incapacity. :Rofl1:
