    :Smile:Any suggestions for a one night stopover before an early morning(6-8am)tunnel crossing. No need for facilities as we are self sufficient, just a reasonably quiet spot near Eurotunnel terminal- max 20mins?:BigGrin:

    Less than 10 minutes to the tunnel.

    We've used the Drum Inn too but thought it a bit expensive at £15 (May 2011) but it is not far to terminal junction.

    We always use The CCs Black Horse Farm site, when over nighting prior to catching an early train, it may be a bit dearer but you can come and go at any time day, or night, the pub across the road do very good and reasonable meals. If you are there on a Friday evening you can get very good fish & chips off a mobile van that calls there.

    Military Road in Hythe.

    On a wide roadside. A bit noisy but gets quiet after 1900 hrs.

    Shops, pubs and takeaways in High Street. Park areas for dog walking.

    Short journey to Chunnel terminal.


    And its free :Smile:
