    Well we recently had our 1st weekend "wilding" sat we stayed at a loverly place in north wales right by the beach (Dinas dinlle) 7 other MH there and not a no overnight parking sign to be seen in fact it was just like a CL, we quite enjoyed it. Sun morning we drove over snowdonia with a view to finding somewere equally as nice however due to the stress of driving down some very tight / narrow roads (moral - never rely on sat nav) we ended up at CC site at Bestwy coed.

    Conclusion-
    Staying somewere like Dinas I get...
    Parking on a layby or a verge at side of road or
    down some narrow side street or
    car park etc .................... that I dont get at all

    As was stated by a funster in one of my previouys threads when we were asking about wild spots in wales "why bother when you can go on a CL for £5 - £10 per night"

    I may consider doing it again occasionally however it would have to be somewere similar to Dinas and I wouldnt do it regular. We are now getting into the CL site idea more and more but still like a "propper" site as well.

    Hi
    Glad you found somewhere nice for the Sat night. We like to wildcamp but never found parking on a layby of a busy road or in a carpark with no view very appealing. We have doen this in the past but more to do with time than planning to stop there.

    I prefer somewhere in the middle of nowhere that its just you and a nice view our best wild camping was 2 weeks in the outer hebrides. But everyone to their own we have like you started to use cl and so far are really impressed.

    Gerry

    And for your £10 you can get 3 bottles of red mood lubricant to enjoy around the bonfire at night. :thumb:

    OK but is it legal....?

    Have read many posts on this subject "found a great spot there was a no parking sign but no one bothered us" type thing. Surely a £5 pn legal CL were you can leave your van safely and go for a walk is better ??

    Verge at the side of the road is fine if it's a little used single track country lane. Car parks - can be good or bad, depends where they are and who else uses them. Narrow (or wide) streets - if you mean as in a town - not particularly pleasant but doable if you have a good reason to need to be in a town. Laybys only a last resort or a handy break on a long journey, but anywhere, absolutely anywhere that is free is preferable to paying to park as far as I'm concerned.
