Motorhomes and campers are specifically not allowed to park at The Pilot overnight without express permission from The Pilot management. Campers and motorhomes are only allowed to stay overnight if all of the occupants of the vehicle eat meals at The Pilot on the evening of arrival and any vehicles staying overnight must leave before 11am the next day, any vehicles flouting this rule will incur a £200 fine. All overnight stays must respect our neighbours: no noise, no games, no barbeques or other cooking in the car park. Any abuse of our hospitality will result in immediate eviction. The car park is monitored by 24 hour ANPR CCTV and all number plates are logged with number plate recognition. Parking monitoring and enforcement is managed by ANPR Parking Control.
