    Stumbled across a new Aire in Belgium which would be a great alternative to Ghent
    It's close to the E40 and only 90 minutes from Calais
    It's brand new and the facilities are spotless
    But what really swung it for me was the facts that it's next to an Ice Cream Parlour and Bistro
    There are free water, electricity and dump facilities
    The cost is amazing at only €6 a night
    But it gets better !!!!
    Eat in the bistro and you can stay for FREE!!!
    Full details and pics on Campercontact

    They speak English too so you can call or email ahead to make a booking if you wish

    Maybe not, but there's Ice Cream
    Plus I forgot to mention that there is a Belgian Chocolate Shop just within walking distance too!
