Motorhome friendly pubs and car parks

I am trying to compile a list of motorhome friendly pubs and car parks - ie places where you can enjoy a meal and drink and then park overnight, or a car park which doesn't have a barrier to keep you out!
For example, at Chesil Beach in Dorset you can park for 24 hours but not sleep in the van, which is ridiculous, and at Lyme Regis there are four designated motorhome bays which are always occupied by either skips or cars.
My local pub, The Royal Oak, in Corsley, Wiltshire, three miles from both Frome and the Longleat Estate, welcomes motorhomes which can park overnight in exchange for using the pub facilities. I am particulary interested in places to overnight in Devon and Cornwall.

Hi Mer

Have you checked out our own MHF campsite database?

MHF Campsite search <<<

MHF Campsite Interactive Map <<<

There are well over 350 parking places listed,

over 450 wild camping spots

and just a few pub stopovers ... actually only 16 but rising and of course we could do with some more... so please if you find some new ones please take the time to add them to "our" listings too.


When confronted by a problem, you can solve it easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger have handled this?"

I have a list of MH friendly pubs already, there are several knocking around on the net, you may be duplicating work (re-inventing the wheel)

This pub in Norfolk will allow you to overnight on the car park if you intend to eat/drink on the premises.

Lovely, quiet location.

Adapt to change quickly. The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you can enjoy NEW CHEESE.

we have found many pubs will let you stay in their car parks in return for you eating in their place - works well in our experience.

a guide is a good idea - but what happened to the one that a motorhoming publican setup? he was charging a subscription to access the data which we thought was a bit tight given all the free stuff around here so we never subscribed.

EDIT - it's still going - - but 30 to join??? ffs

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........
