FREE MOTORHOME OVERNIGHT PARKING FOR YOUR CAMPERVAN HIRE
Brit Stops was created in 2011 as a way to try and emulate the France Passion scheme, which is a scheme throughout France where vineyards (and other locations) offer parking to motorhomes in the hopes of selling some of their produce. Brit Stops is actually part of a scheme called FEFI (Fédération Européenne de la Formule Invitations) which includes France Passion and other similar schemes across Europe. It’s a way of promoting the local produce and beautiful areas of the country, both to UK residents and visitors from abroad. The UK is notorious in not being very welcoming to motorhomers who are used to French aires or wild camping- where the motorhome and campervan parking laws are strict. Brit Stops might be making that easier.
The 2021 edition has over 700 places listed where you can stop for the night with your campervan hire. There are country pubs, farms, shops, local breweries and even a llama park! There are 100 free places to stay in Scotland.
All these places offer free overnight parking for motorhomes or campers ( you need to be fully self-contained with your own facilities) with no obligation to buy. However, if you’re going to go for a meal or a drink anyway, it makes perfect sense that you would buy from the pub, or get your milk/ eggs the next day from the shop, or sample the local ales… all things we enjoy doing as part of our motorhome travels.
Unfortunately, it is not available as an app, but you can purchase the new edition at https://www.britstops.com. If you are interested in booking a campervan hire with Stravaig Motorhome hire check our availability and prices here.
