Just to say hello. We are avid wild campers,(not used a campsite for five years) Mainly in France and Wales in our beloved 1992 Dethleffs A Class.
We like exploring and squeezing the the old Dethstar down improbable lanes to find peace and solitude. Hard to find nowadays, even in Cornwall. Anyone needing any local knowlage please feel free to get in touch.
Rob.

Hi robred100,
We will be touring Cornwall from 17th April and we are hoping to find some spots for wild camping with good coastal views. We have a 7.25m Burstner, so can't get to all the places the smaller campers can get to. But we do like solitude. Would be grateful for any suggestions you might have,
Thanks
Jackie

Hi Jackie
Have a look at the B3301 between Gwithian and Portreath. There are half a dozen clifftop parking areas along there. Look for openings on the seaward side of the road

Regards

Hi Jackie, Rob has given you the correct info:. I would like to just add a few things. There is a cafe called Hell Mouth along the same stretch of road. Large parking area in there. Further on towards Godrevy, a turning right for the NT car parks. Further along the the same turning you can park in quite close towards the cliffs. A very short walk takes you down to the beach and also where the seals are. There are toilets at the NT car park. I think you have to pay. It has been a while since I was there. If NT member, it is free. At Porthtowan, where we live, a cove before Porthtreat, you can park on the sand road leading up to the beach. You have to get there early to find a spot. You can even crash out here with your MH. Hope this helps.

Great info. Thank you.

I will be coming to the UK next week and will definitely check out these spots for the night.

Crash? I am not sure I like this turn of phrase. Particularly when cliffs are also mentioned...

I have collected some suggestions from this forum into a map. http://goo.gl/I6Kug

Hi Peter, Bring your kit with you. Get an extra large one for your van. Quite a few guys take of from the cliffs between St.Agnes and Chapelporth and land on our beach at Porthtowan. There is a guy I know called Kevin, he always circles around to give the tourist a thrill, especially when he comes in to land.☺☺

Hi Peter, Bring your kit with you

I most definitely will. Now please arrange for the wind and sun gods to be cooperative...

Will be happy to meet-up with anyone else along the coast next week.

Cheers,
Peter
