    Morning all,

    Does anyone know of a good night hop around Andover on the A303?

    Give the Weyhill Fair a ring, but as they have just had a beer festival there this weekend you may want to give them a day to recover! They have a field at the back of the pub which people camp on. http://www.weyhillfair.com/ It's a great real ale pub.

    I have tried the WeyHill Flair, they only allow rallies etc on special occasions. Any other suggestions?

    It is a proper campsite but also has a pub: http://www.wykedown.co.uk/campsite/campsite.htm I haven't stayed there as I used to live in Andover - and the Weyhill Fair was our local. It was a few years ago which is perhaps why I had forgotten the WF only allows camping when they are doing things like beer festivals.

    Not having much luck on this one, minimum of 2 nights stay Wyke Down at the weekend. The nearest CL does not allow dogs :(

    I'm running out of ideas but there are two car parks in Mere, a bit further down the A303 which are free and allow overnight parking. Alternatively I am sure you could stay overnight at Amesbury services as you can at motorway services but of course you have to pay.

    We stayed on a CL just south of Mere - Milton Farm, at Milton on Stour. Facilities were fairly basic at the time, but the owner Richard was extremely helpful.
