Campervan Parking in Cornwall

Q. Having travelled all over Scotland and Ireland in our camper van and very rarely used sites, we are planning a holiday to Cornwall and would like to find out what the situation is regarding parking in out of the way spots and staying overnight.

A. Cornwall county council have put up by-laws that forbid sleeping in vehicles in all of Cornwall. Not being British, I have no idea how strictly this is enforced, but I assume you run some risk of getting fined, unless your vehicle is not looking like a campervan. I have always dreamt of buying a real camper van, but stealth sleeping seems to be the way to go... >:-/

A. There are lots of places to park up for the night in Cornwall. Avoid the peak season though. Cornwall Council appear to be anti motorhome though and make it difficult by having height barriers on car parks. They like you to come and stay on campsites which range from reasonable to outrageously expensive. Most seem to be over £20 a night but there are some decent ones for much less if you spend time researching. Use Google Earth to find likely wild spots. Davidstow Moor is a good start.
