    Hi i am new to this forum, so i hope i am posting in the correct place. We are going over to England from ROI at the end of March to pick up our new Motorhome in Wellington Somerset We will be traveling down from Holyhead, in the van we are trading in. Its a long drive so we are hoping to maybe drive down past Bermingham and look for some place to wild camp and continue on to Wellington early the next morning. We have not driven this route before and would really appreciate any help , in knowing where to park overnight on our journey.

    Hi,

    I assume you are purchasing from Chelstons, and while it may be a bit too far to drive in one hit I just thought i would mention that they allow overnights on their site, hope that helps.

    Yes we are purchasing from Chelstons, and they told us about their site which we will use when down there. Its just to rest after maybe three hours driving from Holyhead, and continue down to Chelstons the next morning.

    Depending on the time of your sailing there is the Roodee carpark in Chester but it is locked at 6p.m. allowing only pedestrian access.
    Or if you continue on the A5 there are plenty of off road laybys you can use.

    Thanks for your replies. The AA route planner takes us down on the M5, any ideas for stopping off this motorway.

    Their are plenty of motorway services on the way down the M5 all fairly nice but not stopped over night in them.

    Once you get past bristol you can run down the A28 which has plenty of nice laybys but as the previous poster said Chelston do have over night facilities with hook up.

    over night stop

    hi
    we've stopped at the first services on the m5, parked where the lorries park, only on the right hand side at the side of the barrier. just down the steps to the facilities.
    it says there is a charge for over nighting but i didn't see anywhere to pay.
    good luck with your new van.

    let the force be with you:Rofl1::Rofl1::BigGrin:

    It may not be far enough down but there are a couple of nice sites in Llangollen
    Llangollen Campsites and and Caravan Sites
    This site takes tourershttp://www.towerfarmholidays.co.uk/index.htm as does this one,Wern Isaf.
    On the A5 at the Glenrid / St Martins roundabout there is a BP garage behind which is a truck stop and cafe which serves good breakfasts.
