/ Portland car parks - overnight sleeping
Behind what used to be The Mermaid used to work for me.
Have you tried the YMCA on Reforne in Easton, used to be about £15 a night?
Parking up and kipping for the night is not recommended on Portland and I think the bit behind what was the Mermaid is under different ownership.
have seen people camping at the cuttings down in the boulder field before...but i gather the landowner has told campers to leave in the past, which i suppose he's perfectly entitled to do.
Bagwell farm campsite is good and cheap c.20 quid, but a few miles out of weymouth.
Glen Caravans (opposite the Cuttings) - if there's a few of you, then a static will work out cheap.
Yeah, Glens Caravans is very cheap. You can get one for the night for about £30-£35 I think with shower and hot water/cooking facilities in most. sometimes they don't allow people to stay for just one night. It depends how busy they are. There is also a car park down a muddy track almost opposite the caravan park where friends have spent the night before.
You probably approach from the direction the pic is facing. Glens Caravan entrance is to the left as you can see it, just a few meters past the road turning and the entrance on the right of the picture is where the car park is. There are a couple of these tracks, you just need to find the right one.
It may also be worth trying theYHA in Fortuneswell. They do allow some camping as well.
I think it is on Castle Road (second left by. Victoria Gardens, before the one way system)
I often sleep in the car, either in the car park near Portland Castle or more recently in the quarry car park opposite the approach to Neddyfields/Godnot.
