    Think @Wildge was looking for a recommendation based on experience rather than a list ;)
    :D

    Come on where's the spirit of fun ,someone must be able to recommend a stopover if not a sacred ,hallowed ,though shall not know unless you buy the book Britstop .
    I've stayed at a few pub stopovers where I've phoned ahead and asked ,only to find out afterwards they're Britstops I'm not a member but was offered their hospitality at no charge .Why the mystery and funny handshake brigade think they're protecting a secret society is beyond me .Ive told of such places to others and have not been struck down.

    Asked and answered in many (oh so many threads) but basically an agreement when you buy the book & a courtesy to Steve, whose living it is... and whose hard work compiled the database.
    ...and perhaps to frustrate those tightwads who won't cough up one night's caravan club site fee for the book :rolleyes:.

    :) Newport Pagnell service centre £12 overnight. Not the most glamorous stop, but I was taken with a very bad version of the vomiting bug earlier this year. :LOL:

    Jude, do you do facebook? If so have a look for the 'discussion group for britstops' you can search for the number once you're on their page (so I'm told;)) it's a v active group:)

    If you join the Britstop Facebook group, there are quite a few reviews of various stops...
    Haven't got the books to hand but 204/15 gets 3 good mentions.
