    We are going to Santandar from Portsmouth in Febuary.
    Can anyone help with a overnite stop as we are driving down from North Wales.

    Hi Malc
    We stopped in Feb at a cl called Drove Lee, handy for the port and a local pub for a meal, BUT dont use it if its wet we got stuck and full of mud trying to get out, last year we stopped at Southsea caravan camp, ok for one night only but a bit dear. Pete :thumb:

    Hi.. I have checked sailings from Plymouth to Santandar and the last one out was 30th Oct and according to there website they do not start till Sunday 1st April..

    Or do you know different?

    There is an overnight stop on the A38 at Lee Mill, that a lot of Trucks.Caravans/Motorhomes stop at on the way to the ferry.

    If they are sailing it may be possible to park up at the Port.

    This is a link to the overnight stops.. Go down the list till you get to the A38, Lee Mill..

    I dont know much about it or prices.. :thumb:

    Havant Borough Council are now allowing overnighting on Hayling Island West Beach seafront car park. Easy run to Portsmouth harbour from there.

    Last year we parked up on the dockside at Plymouth, mind you first in line but last on the boat.
