Hi, I just joined the Forum. 

 

I have been subscribed since April but have only just got round to it. I have been building a very basic Campervan. 

 

I was trying to find the list of Nightstops. I was also hoping that someone might have added GPS locations. 

 

We live in Guernsey and hope to use Nightstops on a trip we have planned to Scotland in June. 

 

Any assistance on each would be welcome.

I think the list of Nightstops will be put up on the PMH website 'in due course'.

In the meantime I have a listing of official non-campsite stopovers here: www.ukmotorhomes.net/ukaires.shtml. It includes all the Nightstop locations, which are marked with the Nightstop logo. All have GPS coordinates and a link to Google Maps and Streetview, so you can see what they are like!

Hi all

 

Just a quick reminder that you can now access our Nightstop map by clicking on this link:

If you'd like a full pdf list of the locations, including all phone numbers etc, you can email me at sarah@practicalmotorhome.com, and I'll send it on to you. You can also contact me either on this address, or on these forums, if you have any further questions about Nightstop. We'd also love to hear from you if you know of a pub or other location that will make a great Nightstop - if you pass the details on to me, I'll forward them an information pack about how to join our scheme.

 

 

Cheers!
Sarah

What is happening to the Nightstop Scheme?

It seems to have become a low priority for the magazine, there's not been much of a mention in the last two issues, at the very least there should be a listing published in every issue.

Apart from the updates, there is no  listing on the PMH website. Why not?

I think it's a great scheme but it suffers from lack of publicity, if it's to succeed it needs a much higher profile.

Hi Andy

 

Thanks for the post, and the comments - we're busy working hard on the Nightstop scheme as we speak! We've recently recruited a couple of new locations, taking us up to 24 Nightstops, and we've got quite a few more in the application process for their CL licence.

 

You're right that we haven't mentioned it in the mag for the last couple of months – as of the next issue (September) we'll be printing full list of locations in the magazine, along with full contact details. At the moment we only have our Google map, but we're working hard on improving the travel content of our website, part of which will be dedicated to Nightstop. In the meantime, anyone can get hold of a full list of locations by emailing me direct – my address is sarah@practicalmotorhome.com.

 

Thanks again for the comments, and look out for some great new developments shortly!

 

Best wishes

Sarah

Excellent news, thanks Sarah!

When do you think we will be seeing the improved website with a dedicated Nightstop section?

Night stop in Scotland

A9

Perth park and ride is an excellent place to stop. The car park is very big and new. The sign says caravans and motorhomes can stay free for 3 days. The toilettes are new and in a very very clean condition. A bus to town is every 10 minutes.

This sounded like great news so I checked with the local council. Unfortunately, although the maximum stay for parking is 72 hours they told me

"it is not permissible for motorhome/caravan owners to sleep, cook, camp, use their awnings or inhabit their motorhome/ caravan at any point during the time the vehicle is parked."

An update to the Nightstop Listing.

The Paddock, near Westbury, Wiltshire is now closed. The owner has sold his property.
