Stayed opposite the mount ourselves,:cool::) but it was wintertime. Would you be able during the summer?:confused:

big viaduct in hayle by the old foundry . or any of the layby,s around even on some of the streets if you are only in a bongo .get some black film on your windows .we use a bongo all summer and park anywhere .with black on windows and blinds down curtain behind front seats could just be parking.
used to have a vw t2 did same with that. even park on housing estates if need be. show no interiour lights at night .bit more difficult in my mini artic thats why i got the bongo.

If it's here Hayle - Google Maps (http://tinyurl.com/36w26lz) there's a height barrier :(

It might seem a bit daft but if you head inland it is usually much easier to "wild camp". Near the coast Babylon is much more keen on harressing over-nighters because it is easier and sfaer than tackling druggies and fights :(

Try here. Parked here a couple of weeks ago. Didn't stay overnight but sussed it out for the future. It's right next door to St Ives Bay Holiday Park. To get to it, if you're coming down the A30, you turn right by Lidls on the double mini roundabout signposted Portreath (Loggans Road) . After just a few metres, turn left. (There is a signpost on the main road for Beach Car Park). Just keep following the narrow road as far as you can. There is a Pay and Display machine but I think it only costs 2 or 3 to park. Couldn't see any restrictions on overnight parking. Somebody may have already discussed this place in the Cornwall section on here.

hi all

you can park almost right opposite the St Ives bay camp site on the oppisite side of the road, about 100m further on than the campsite heading for gwithian.

Or behind the Co op, there is a small road for deliverys just behind the co op, off lethlean lane.

Or by the open air swimming pool on king georges walk. there is a small car park, signs saying no over night parking but lots of people do.

dont park by the viaduct or on the harbour you will be moved on or clamped by the harbour security.

Enjoy Hayle gods country.
