My wife and I used to camp here all the time it used to be possible to stay down by the boat club and there were toilets down there as well but the council went and put parking meters up with only a 4 hour parking period. We have stayed in the Somerfield car park both in the motorhome parking bays (although it does say no overnight camping) and we have stayed in the lorry park at the back of the shop although it is some times noisey because the refridgeration units on the lorriuesw.

Not know, but I think it's a dump. The last time I was there 25 years ago I broke down so that can't help . :)

Looking to do an overnighter this weekend to try and cheer my nephew up after being dumped by his first girlfriend (real agony). Looking at Brean, Burnham on Sea or Weston for a cheap night where I can park, close enough to a pub where I can buy him a few. :confused:

To be fair to Paul, there are far nicer places than Burnham and do know what he means.......having said that, I still like the place, its grown on me. Prefer Brean, but no wild camping there?

Years ago we used to Beach party on Brean beach, is this not allowed anymore? We all crashed (quite literally) with our cars and motorbikes there and never got bothered at all. Always watching someone leaving their car in the sea in the mornings though!

When I first moved up from devon to somerset I used to think anywhere along this stretch of coast wasn't really that attractive. Burnhams concrete sea front and long expance of muddy sand can look very bleak. I used to wonder why people holidayed here, when in my opinion far nicer costal resorts were only a bit further down the m5.

But to be fair, it has really grown on me. it is a freindly town. It also feels like an old fasioned resort. Its one of the few places in the area or even the south west (other than Weston, or Uphill) that you can park your motorhome on the beach. Brean is really nice once you drive past all the tat. And its funny as buggery watching the silly idiots losing their cars in the mud/sea.

Doubt you can park on the beach over night. The carpark I use down the very end of brean is free for national trust members, but closes at about 7pm. Not really anywhere in brean suitable for wild camping as far as I am aware.

As a resident of said Allandale Road I have seen many an overnighter at the end of the road overlooking the beach, and that is fine, but I think that staying for four days as someone did last week is a bit much and will ultimately spoil it for everybody. Found out that a neighbour eventually complained and they moved on.

Hi you can park behind the Sands Public house from 8pm until9am for 2 or 3 although it might be a bit noisy but at least you are near a pub

Years ago we used to park right down the bottom by the boats in burnham till they stopped it and also overnight on the beach at brean till they stopped that .. lately the parents were parking close to the monaco hotel at weston but they've changed all the raod signs and can't park there ....

A new car park we believe with overnight stays for about 6 a night has now been finished by the old pier at weston a little bit of a walk for weston town but an out of the way spot for mh's

What is the latest on wild camping in Burnham?
Last year I spent a couple of nights up near the boat club during the winter. It was fine, apart from the idiots that drive past and sound their horns at night.

Are there any better places near the town for off season parking. :D:D

I love Burnham.

There are nearly 30 spaces in Pier Street carpark, next to Wm.Morrisons/on the main esplanade. Also some spaces next to the yacht club, far south of the esplanade.

Enforcement was weak, until a rise in incidents originating from those parking overnight in the motorhome spaces, involving both theft and vandalism of local property (including one theft of lead from the church roof), and the associated littering. From August 2014 new private parking attendants were appointed by Sedgmoor District Council, who are bonused to enforce - so its a lot better monitored, and they have willing monitoring assistance from the local Neighbourhood Watch. Fine is 40/night plus collection fees, enforced via court-admissable CCTV evidence, and pursued remotely by a third party
