Just back from a lovely weekend in Pembs' ..New "no overnight parking" signs all over west angle bay car park , was reading the " village community" newsletter and seems the community council asked the Pembs' national parks to " get the signs up before Easter" ....all campsites were closed...would think local business would welcome some extra cash going through the tills this time of year and encourage tourism not the opposite

On a good note the landlord of "The Point " pub said okay to stay in his car park, use loos and told us where we could get the water behind the potato fairies house ( if you've been there you'll know!) , e had a lovely meal there in return .

Bur speaking to a local he said the no overnight could not be enforced in law and they ( community council) were waiting on info on how they could enforce legally ..didn't put us off though

We usually park up in Freshwater West, which is quite close to Angle. It's got no houses in the vicinity and is a lovely beach setting so I'm hoping there are no signs there (would probably ignore them anyway if they're not enforceable)

Pembrokeshire is one of the least motorhome friendly areas in Wales.

Nothing has changed then:rolleyes2: Newgale 1986. I had some yobo clowns in what looked like a farmers Landrover with spotlights revving up and shouting something about not parking by the beach, this was about 3am. In the morning I went into a shop for some milk or something and the first thing the woman said was " You should't be parking on the beach carpark overnight, perfectly good campsite opposite"

Keep meaning to go back one day!

Google Streetview pictures from December 2008 show a 'no overnight parking' restriction in place for West Angle, so it's not recent.

Thanks for the info on The Point - I've added it to the POIs :D

I use Angle occasionally. If I get questioned I just say my husband is night fishing they don't expect a woman on her own with kids ha ha. Never stay more than one night though and also stay at Freshwest. Guys there's loads to see in Pembrokeshire move on I think the main prob with angle is vans that stay long term or that's what the villagers tell me. There is a nice site at castle farm if you want to stay long term very basic but that's what we like isn't it

We live between Haverfordwest and Newgale and have just spent a few nights wild camping at Freshwater West. No new signs, and still a fantastic place to unwind - if you don't mind the mid-night manouvres and the rat-a-tat-tat of small arms fire at the nearby Castlemartin Firing Range. However, their website usually flags up the dates and times - forewarned is fore'armed'! Have fun. BigBri

Sorry. I live just outside Haverfordwest and strongly disagree! A wild camper just a mile away in a layby has been there for nearly a week now! Don't be put off. Idyllic!

Seriously, we walked the length and breadth of Freshwater West, and not a sign to be seen anywhere! I would be interested to see any information to the contrary - like a picture or two!

You appear to be on the wrong side of the peninsula! The picture refers to Angle. I am singing the praises of Freshwater West - about 5 miles away! I would still be interested in a picture though - of Freshwater West.

All those lovely new ' no overnight parking' signs that were put up all over west angle bay a few weeks ago have gone ! And..rumour has it that the land in Angle was left for the use and enjoyment of all people, many moons ago and the ' no overnight cannot be enforced .A Camper stayed there on Friday night no probs, we had a fab night at 'The Point' pub, on saturdy night, live music and good food, 4 campers overnighted at pub, Rob the landlord quite happy just let him know..

Maybe in 2009 but got flooded this year, and why cant people mind their own bushiness, we add to the economy, and why pay extortionate prices that they now charge per night per person!! we have everything on board, that's what a Motor-home is for, Freedom

The Motorhome Tourism Organisation sent a Freedom of Information request to Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority

This is the reply

Dear Mr Thompson

With reference to your further e-mail please find below our response:

We do not have a TRO, only an Off-street Parking Order. This was last updated in 1991 by another Authority, now no longer in existence. It does not exist in electronic form.

The information is in the public domain as the order was reported in the London Gazette on or about April 1991 and the draft order would have been published in the local paper Western Telegraph, a few months prior to that. I do not have a record of the dates.
