    Yes Caledonia we stayed in this Car Park on a weekday night last year and experienced the local Boy Racers till 3am in the morning.I realise each to their own and we all have our interests but when they are racing around driving everyone mad till the early hours then it gets a bit taxing and as you say there are nicer places in that area to stay...

    Cheers for the replies I'll make a note of all the mentioned stops.

    We've never really had any trouble and if asked to move it wouldn't be a massive deal but it was refreshing finding a spot that had signage allowing motorhomes instead of the "no overnight parking/sleeping". On that subject Seaton Carew and surrounding spots now have signs up.

    Have heard the local road pilots are keen on seeing who can doughnut closest to the motor home.

    Sad thing Micky is you can only stay one night, and if one of us does something the locals or council don't approve of, we will probably be banned.

    The boy racers, well their just letting of some steam, night after night after night.
    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    The council's around the Skipton area, seem more enlightened, than most areas. There are several that allow motorhomes to stay, overnight, albeit with a reasonable charge. Settle, is another town, in that area.
    Others have posted a few, around the UK, that welcome us, although I'm surprised that no one has yet mentioned one that is, arguably, one of the best, and that is Canterbury New Dover Road, Park And Ride. Apart from not having Mains hookup, it's as good as many continental Motorhome Aires.
    It is a dedicated motorhome parking area, with water and disposal facilities, as well as CCTV, for security. Plus, once you have got your ticket, you can use the bus, into Canterbury, as many times as you Like. Well worth a visit, if you are down that way.

    I have just checked Herefordshire Council's Off Street Parking Order. As usual this prohibits sleeping, camping or cooking in their car parks.
    Remember - POI additions and updates can be sent by email to POI@wildcamping.co.uk

    And you can get a decent meal in the pub just at the entrance too.

    Can second the local council around Settle and Skipton several of the car parks have designated bays . They are listed on there web site.
