boat storage

Any one know of anywhere in Torbay area to store a boat on trailer relatively cheaply and secure as i want to leave boat in area rather than towing it back and forth every other weekend for a month or two, don't mind if its a farm out of the way a little as long as its not too far to get too say 20 mins drive.
Have looked on google and found a few places, there is one in Totnes by the slip that looks ok as storage yard but have not contacted them as yet
Cheers

Thanks Toonpirate for asking, no not Blackwater, its a yard on the side of the steamer key road not far from the public slip, i'm idealy looking for something that's secure and not too far from Paignton or Torquay. I have found Dartside quay at Galmpton with parking/storage facilities but the slip is only usable for a few hours but the road is narrow.

The road to Dartside is a narrow, but that's Devon for you. I've used it for years with no real problem - just take it steady. Dartside is OK c. 2.5 hrs either side of HW, but if tides are not favourable Brixham slip is only a 15 min tow.

If you don't like that Dainton at Yalberton do storage, but you'll need to tow to launch every time. Not sure on prices but I think it's c. 4-5 /m/ week.

Ribraff might have some room in Dartmouth if you drop him a pm, but parking will be an issue.

If you're down for a couple of days you can always berth over night at one of the marinas - Noss, Darthaven, Dart Marina and recover on the next suitable tide.
