South Coast - Petrol Availability - B&Bs

Looking to plan a cruise from Southampton along the south coast, wondering if anyone knows where petrol is available. The ones I know about (but please do tell if I'm wrong!): -

Yarmouth Harbour
Poole Fuel Barge
Torquay Marina
Darthaven Marina
Salcombe Fuel Barge
Plymouth Queen Anne's Battery Marina / Mayflower Marina

Also, any personal recommendations for B&Bs within reach of a marina, harbour or moorings - plenty listed by The AA but inside knowledge appreciated!


Thanks

Andy

Torquay is 1.30ltr at the moment

Would suggest you get a better nights stay in Brixham marina with B&B's much closer to the boat than Torquay.

Not sure about the price on the Dartmouth fuel barge at the moment although that would also be a better place to spend the night than Torquay!!

Should you need anything if your in this area give me a call, if you have some jerry can's I'll run you to the garage

I definitely prefer Dartmouth to Torquay, but bear in mond that the B&Bs are a lot more expensive.

Plymouth area if the marinas are expensive you could come up river to saltash under the bridge and moor on the pontoon or sailing club moorings for visitors . Good B&B and pubs for sure and petrol not far , may be cheaper to get a taxi to the filling station with some cans .

Looe next stop down from plymouth has a filling station at the top of the harbour under the bridge on the right . Ok up to 2 hrs iether side of HW
