RE: sleeping on Cornwall/Devon beaches - legal & safe?
I'm pretty sure wildcamping is illegal all round the UK, but I'm not sure anyone would really stop you if you tried. I've wildcamped a few times but not on a beach (and not in Cornwall before). I think it's best to find a place that's secluded but without being too far from people or help, should you come into any trouble. In wooded parks or nature reserves it's generally easy to get away with. Generally though, if you're outside in the countryside, there aren't likely to be any people who would cause you problems anyway.
You could alternatively ask a farmer to camp on his/her land. They might charge a small fee, but it would probably be cheaper than paying for a campsite.
