    Sailing out from Portsmouth to Caen next Sunday morning does anyone know a campsite nearby we can stay in a 34ft RV Rookesbury in the BPG is no good as we did'nt rejoin CC this year as we don't use their sites enough to get our moneys worth.

    If not it'll be a night in the docks

    We always stay at JM Caravans at Nutbourne, 10 mins from ferry.

    If it's good enough for us ...............

    Bon Voyage

    and what is that about not getting your monies worth at £30 odd £ a year with all the money you've spent this year:Smile::Smile::Smile:

    Hi Rory

    You need to email the Highways Agency for their Free Truckstop guide. I would send you mine but unfortunately it 'disappeared' at one of the last shows I attended.

    email: highwaysagency@twoten.press.net

    web site: Highways Agency - Home.

    By the way as Olley says, JM caravans is site 134 in the BPG.

    Secondly, there is a new googlemap facility on the BPG website which is open to the public and which shows the location of every site in the BPG. Anybody, I repeat anybody, can ring me for details about any site shown.

    I was going to suggest Rookesbury then read the post properly. We were staying there a few weeks ago, and did notice a CL round the corner. Not sure of the name. was a cattery, so might be easy to search.
