    There is a farm at Tardinghen, just up from Wisstant. Next door to the 2 Caps Brewery and the bakery van comes around in the morning. The top sites have views back to England and the ones alongside and behind the barn have EHU. 6 Euro a night.

    Yes, we stayed at the farm a couple of years ago. Our aires book gave a phone number and I phoned from the UK to check there would be room in the hook-up area and again when we arrived in Calais as we were delayed on the crossing. The farmer's wife came round all the camping cars offering lobster for sale for the evening meal. We also had the baker come round. We all had to empty our cassettes into one of the 1000 litre containers often seen on farms with liquid chemicals in them.

    Very quiet site.

    If you are new to aires and fifty miles is no problem then look Embry up in the aires book, beautiful aire with immaculate shower block. Leccy is only for two hours at a time with a jeton out of the machine but really nice quite introduction to aires. The lady comes in the evening to collect her 6 euros and speaks good English
