    I may be wrong, I usually am:Doh:, but I think the £5 is only for cars, M/hs are £20 per night now if we are talking Stop24 at J11.

    Yep this is correct, can confirm as I refused to pay it last July and drove off and found a lay by but can't remember exactly where, it was before the water though.

    I stayed a couple of times at this lovely pub.. No charge if you use the pub, even got an extension lead under a wheel barrow if you need hookup (you'll need a13amp adaptor). Toilet but no other facilities if I remember.

    Best bit is its less than 20 minutes from the Tunnel.

    Bloody hell !!!
    That is nuts .. There is absolutely NOTHING there as even the service area is locked up all night..

    We used to stop there but when they started charging did not bother any more.. I should think at £20 a pop the place never sees a MH..

    Really great forward thinking that, supporting the shops in the service area by encouraging people to stop and spend..

    Oh.. no.. hang on.. I meant the other thing.. really stupid long term thinking !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just by way of an update - they now charge £10 for an overnight stay (£16 with hook up) but will discount any food/bar consumption by 10%. The restaurant is predominantly Italian but they also have a varied bar menu. It is advisable to book for an overnight stay. They have shower facilities but no provision to empty toilet cassette.
