    Hi, we are new to M/home world. But is it possible anywhere in UK to wild camp on a beach. Or is there a camp site on or near the beach that you would recommend. Thanks.:Smile:

    Not really wild camping but we stay in Praa Sands beech car park quite often.

    It's right next to the beech, has public toilets and costs £8 for 24hrs (motorhomes are allowed). It also has a great pub (again right next to the beech) that does nice food and the beech is about a mile long. Great if you want simple and we often just a have a night here.

    At the other end of the spectrum we have Pentewan Sands just up the road from us. A big site right next to the beech with great facilities. The downside here for us is they don't allow dogs. Plus it's not the cheapest site - but worth the cost if you want the facilities and great if you have children.

    Not a beach but motorhomes are often parked up overnight along Dartmouth front, in the area between the Station Café and the upper ferry. Many of them non-UK, i.e. French, who seem more switched on to doing this.

    Loads up here in Shetland, all beautiful - I have stayed right on the beach at Norwich in Unst and overlooking the beach at St Ninians, plus almost everywhere you stay has a seaview and beach within sight and easy walk.

    I am currently in carpark right in Lerwick, No other occupants - seaview on 3 sides and short walk to sea.

    Was going to add piccies but there are so many its easier to take a look at my journal. Orkney was good too and will be going to West Highlands and Islands shortly where I hope for similar luck. Nothing (so far) can beat waking up in the morning and drawing back the blinds to a full view of the sea. :Smile:
