    My Mum and step father are travelling up to meet us in Kent to go over to France next week.

    They are coming up the M4 and are looking for a stop somewhere off the M4 on the English side of the Bridge.

    They are talking about stopping at services but I am not keen on that.

    Any ideas for a night stop?

    Only criteria really is that it needs to be close to the motorway.

    Thanks.

    If they are in the Caravan Club there is a CL 2 miles off the M4/M5 intersection at Almondsbury http://horthamfarm.co.uk/

    If they want to travel a bit further on, to J17, Chippenham turn off, 25 minutes will then get them to C&CC Devizes, which I can recommend.

    We use this one as a stop off going to the tunnel it is 148 miles from home we live in Pembrokeshire 4miles or so north of the
    Cleddau bridge. it is a caravan club cl no electric £4 per night, you leave M4 J 18 onto the A46 Bath in 3/4miles turn left and site is a few hundred yards on your left.

    Thanks, we have all been there but they think it's a bit too far off the motorway for them.

    Yes thanks. I suggested that but they say it isn't far enough.


    I will pass that on. Thank you very much.

    They are setting off from very near to you - Hundleton just outside Pembroke.

    Thanks all:thumb:

    A quick walk with Google says I was thinking of The Barge Inn.
