    On the way home ant stopped for two nights at Camping Kloet @ Zierikzee Holland. Excellent site, beautiful town, I recommend both.

    Trouble is we are having trouble finding a last night site for Monday, close to Dunkirk, restaurant close by etc.

    A personal recommendation would be great,

    p.s. Helsinki was great, despite the weather.

    Have you thought about using an Aire - there are plenty about. The one at Gavelines comes well recommended by lost of people on this forum (I have not been to it).

    Click to see Gravelines Aire

    To the left, the town wall and moat - inside is the usual selection of small town bars and restaurants. To the right, the marina.

    Only one Restaurant in Grand Port Philp & it always closed when we stay there so if you need a Restaurant you are better off across the river at Graveline.

    If you go to Gravelines and walk out towards the sea -to the right, there are quite a few restaurants about 1 mile away and it's quite a pleasant walk.

    I read this as Drunken Onenighter - I though it was going to be a confession of some sort . :D Must get down to Specsavers.

    Yep, we have stayed on the Bergues aire a few times, very nice but no facilities. Plenty of eateries and shops in the pleasant town, also a vets where they speak good English.

    There is a campsite at the Northern end of Dunkirk town. Good toilet facilities and within walking distance of the town via the promenade. Sorry, I can't remember the name.

    After much searching have found a site in Belgium 40km away, Kompass camping @ westende, ferry at middayish so not a particularly early start.
    Thanks for all the suggestions, prefer a site if poss, maybe should have said.
