    Your motorhome wouldn't go on my driveway I'm afraid :(
    For a tourist area there aren't a huge number of touring sites.

    There's a pub called the Horse and Hounds, on the old Newton Abbott road, think it comes under Kingkerswell. Their car parks quite a decent size.

    For Broadleigh Farm.
    You turn off the Totnes Road onto Stoke road at pub Parkers Arms the road is Ok , a sharp LH turn after couple hundred yards but ok if you swing a bit wide, bit tight in couple places but loads of Mhomes use it.
    Keep an eye on overhanging branches on left, After about 1 mile turn right fork on Aish Rd it is single vehicle but lots passing places and good visibility ahead. No prob. Sounds worse than it is.
    I am 8m and use it loads, no problem.
    Beware Satnav if coming from Totnes , it will try to turn you right at a garage halfway between Totnes and Paignton. Signed Aish. That road is bad hill and tight. Continue towards Paignton until you get in built up area, past Ocean BMW on right, then Parkers Arms Pub, turn right.
