A honesty box is fine ecept many folk dont carry cash, best a wifi and pay with paypal/bank, anyway the box is a target for tealeaves and would not last a week here.
Yes I have had that first time I stopped at Glencoe ski place. Cafe was shut when we arrived and left. Stopped again a few days later though and made up for it. Always try to remember some cash these days

The Lowther Arms at Mowbray on the Cumbrian coast has been bought by the community. They have renewed the pubs old camping license for the area at the back. They’ve only recently got the keys and are getting to grip with all the work that needs doing to bring it back to life. But later in the year they hope to welcome motorhomes.

the Yorkshire Dales at the Helwith Bridge Inn 2 miles outside Settle on the Horton in Ribblesdale road. They let campervans/motorhomes overnight in their large carpark there is an out side toilet and an outside tap also a camping field for tents with a couple of portaloos. They also have The Hotel Paradiso a very small bunkhouse.
The landlord and landlady are really friendly and the food is reasonably priced and large portions they have real ale and a good selection of beers at a reasonable price.

I don’t know if this has been posted before but I’m sure someone will tell me if it has....

Last week I posted The Mill campsite, Aire stopover field. I was very vague with.location of this stopover. We have two pitches (possibly more if required) with the use of drinking water tap, and chemical point for £6 a night in the honesty box. After members asking about 3 words I have managed to get connected and can update you all on .

DO NOT FOLLOW SAT NAV

Post code: SY21 8BJ
Manafon, Nr Welshpool

Take B4390 to Berriew, keep following the road round in the village. Pass thro Pant-y-fridd, down hill. Pass light railway on left, next farm house with white circle in top of bricks. Camp/stopover in opposite field.

Here is a precise what3words address, made of 3 random words. Every 3 metre square in the world has its own unique what3words address.

Thanks Annie, the Southwold Pier car park would be great if the numbers were known and we stood a chance of getting in.

We love the naughty water clock where the mechanical figures drop their trousers.

We've camped in that area many times, but never tried the car park. Sadly, once it gets out, I bet it's quickly rammed.

A *positive* park-up post -Back Lane Car Park in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire, which is a lovely town to visit. They are offering motorhome parking for two nights on a honesty box system, suggesting £5. The car park has public loos although the handwash/dryer is one of those set into the wall so you won't be able to fill up your water there.View attachment 96851
It’s worth noting though that there are only 2 bays designated. My concern is that this will be ignored and the councils last line will then be put into effect.

Just had a quick shufty at the Tan Hill Inn.
Was always a good spot for a stopover or a meet in the past? 🤔

Prices all seem to include a full English breakfast (whether you want one or not!), which could mean it is still reasonable compared to other campsites or expensive new overnight 'car parks' / aires.

Motorhomes and tent campers:-

"We are charging adults £20 pppn including breakfast and children £10 including breakfast (these are peak times).
Off peak adults £15 pppn including breakfast and children £8 pppn including breakfast.
You can stay in the carparks and enjoy the magnificent views and stay overnight as long as you wish."

Think they *may* be opening their shower facilities up as well? Which is a lot more than the CMC are currently planning on doing.
Looks like Tan Hill have made a bit of effort to set up outside covid facilities for drinking etc., like a lot of other pubs I guess, but still... ?

Linky here: Tan Hill Inn - Motorhomes
This is another example of why I'm thinking of giving up Motorhoming, I can go to Travelodge where I have a warm room ensuite clean sheets for £29 per night
