    Don't know if you can stay the night here
    http://www.thefarmcafe.co.uk/
    But we always stop here for break when on the way to Great Yarmouth as its about half way for us, but there is a caravan park on the other side of the road.

    As above Farm cafe, it is a truck stop we stayed about 18 months back £5.00.

    An Ideal stopover would be The Bluebell Inn at Whaplode St Catherine.
    It is just over 4 miles from the A17,not far from Spalding.
    It serves very good food and you park in there car park.There is a place for your
    grey and black waste,and even a shower in the pub.
    We stopped there Saturday night and had a lovely meal,and the owner is a fellow
    motorhomer and a really nice guy.There is even free wifi!

    And forgot to say it is £5 a night,which you get back if you have a meal.
    And there is EHU if needed,but that is £2.50 a night.

    that looks great and will hopefully stay on the way back, do you know if there is any dog walking areas? as they have two lovely dogs, and do you have to book or just turn up?

    The pub is on a fairly quiet road,so you could walk the dogs there.
    I would ring and book,but we rang the day we wanted to go and
    we were ok,but you could just turn up.There is only two EHU,so if you needed that I would definetly book.
    I think they are closed on monday nights,so any other day would be fine.
