Very small spot for one big or two medium sized camper vans. People walk dogs or play cricket but otherwise quiet spot. Toilets are 2 minute drive away.

At 0.45am we were harassed by a group of 4 in a car. The designated blue lined box is in the corner of the car park along a fence. We were boxed in by fence on 2 sides, another van next to us and that car. The driver got out, pissed beside the van, number 2 got out, and disappeared across the cricket pitch. Bag in hand on the way, no bag on the way back - a drop off? On his way back he also proceeded to slam the van window thinking we weren’t already awake. This took about 10 minutes all the whole music blasting from their car. When a second car came and did a donut in the car park we left for another spot.

Nice area, if you walk a little, you have toilets close by. The blue marked area isn't too big tho so be quick. Its right beside the street but not so many cars during the night!
