    Hi, we are unable to get there this year, if anyone happens to see the DFDS stand and can get the Discount Code for travel from January I think many of us would be grateful.

    Thanks,

    Cydersyd.

    Will try & remember to find that out & post when we are there at the weekend. Please can a few other Funsters also do the same in case we forget in all the excitement? :)

    Thank you Camocan, after several no go's I've found something for next Wed/Thurs, New House Farm at Atherstone, a C&CC CS with some good reviews about 12 miles from the NEC and like yours £11 to £12 a night. (y)

    I was looking at streetview for access as it looked a bit out of the way, but should be no problem going in through Hurley. I'll report back if we manage to get out again. :oops:

    One I did try for next week was booked but nearer to Bedworth is Hollyfast, not cheap but affiliated to the C&CC.

    Not been to show yet but other Funsters report that they couldn't find the DFDS stand & not on exhibitor list on the show website so looks like not there this year:(

    Well we arrived, on site that is. Holly Park Farm (I think). Through the Farm yard and onto a nice open grass field with gravelled areas for the vans. It's actually been pouring since we arrived so we've been housebound and even the dog's only popped out for a quick wee. EHU's and a tap right behind our van, I did try a hook up lead that was hanging over a post but couldn't trace where it went so had to plug into a supply with a three way socket on it, we'll just be careful we don't put too much on at once. [​IMG] Sort of a washing up lean to across from us but too wet to explore, and think we passed a loo or empty point on the way in. Nice welcome from host when we found him. £12 per night. Apart from the lack of info on facilities that's Holly Park Farm. Maybe a bit off the beaten track down some narrow lanes and not sure we'd come this way again but handy for NEC.
