So cheap in Cornwall it's hardly worth wilding it!

Handy bus just at the gate as well for a trip down to Lizard or Mullion. We had a wander both ways and got a good cup of coffee at the Mullion Cove Hotel up on the cliff. Never even looked at the on-site bar and the like.

Enjoy your trip.

Cheers

Obviously need to pick time-duration carefully.
I just tried Lizard Point for 2 nights later this month and it was £46.
There's 2 sites that I know of one's just a field the other looks really tidy and well laid out spaced hard standings but probably expensive did you try the right one

My wife and I came from New Zealand and toured in a motorhome around the UK for 5 months last year. We found Parkdeans Resorts camps great value out of season but peak season was the opposite. We were quoted £124 and £85 for one night at short notice on two different occasions.

It’s about what’s convenient and also safety. If we are touring around stopping at different rural locations each night then more likely to avoid campsite.

If we are in the same spot for several days focusing on more urban areas more likely to stop on campsite.

Also why use gas to heat and cook when you can use hook up? That could be worth £3-£4 a day now colder days are arriving. Depends how warm you like the van and it’s size I guess. I like the interior to be sauna like but Mrs Moped then complains it’s too hot!
cook on gas ,use gas lights ,do have 480wt solar and 500 amp of batteries . think last time i used a campsite was 2009 in spain.
its only a game dont use campsites dont pay to park even a car. dont buy water. only buy so many things when on special offer or just cheap.
always been a tight git so no fun to stop doing it now.
isnt hook up when you meet a local lady to spend the night with. hee hee .
have fun,smile and enjoy your trips .

A lot of them only close for a month in january as they have Xmas and new year parties for the static owners but of course this year might be different.
No it’s the same we own a holiday bungalow in St Margaret’s Bay, there’s no camping allowed on our Parkdean.

I booked a grass pitch with hook up for 9 days at Parkdeans Lizard Point, arrived today. It cost a mere £63, I don't think that can be beaten can it? Free wifi available but not at the pitch. Entertainment pass as well all for £7 a night.
Not all places have camping facilities it would be great too know the places that do. How can I find out as the site in Birchington says camping but it doesn’t allow motorhomes it’s owned by Park Homes. They used to about 4 years ago but stopped. They only allow tents. Brrrr

Check out their websites it tells you which ones allow camping and motorhomes but if you read my posts I was talking about Park Resorts not Park Homes there are several different companies and I know that Park Resorts hav3 been discounting out of season for years as we have used them for years in the autumn and winter months.

Park Resorts are defunct now, they merged with Parkdean about 5 years ago.

Well whatever they are called they are cheap out of season.
Yes, they are. I should have paid the extra £2 or so per day for a Hard standing, Our van got rather a muddy floor! The toilet block had no plugs in any of the basins and there were no toilet brushes in any cubicles except for the disabled toilet/shower room. I would never go camping there in season. The week before we paid £17 a night at Camelford for a Hard standing with EHU and use of excellent spotlessly clean warm toilets and showers - with music as well. This one is open all year round too. We would use it again - it's Cherry Cottage camping.
