Ok folks, just wondering if anyone has any experience..

I am pretty well broke and cannot afford hotels/B&B's. I have loads of holiday entitlement from work to take. I can afford to drive so long as I save by sleeping in the car (I can pretty much sleep anywhere so that is not a problem).

I am thinking of taking a trip along the south coast of the UK for a week, with the aim of 'being in the right place at the right time' in terms of early morning and late evening light, so being able to park close to where I want to take photos is important. I shoot large format.

As far as I know sleeping in the car in laybys is not permitted, but wonder if the boys in blue would actually move me on. Too dangerous?

Am I crazy, is there a better option??

Thoughts appreciated.
