    Sorted the ferry booking, so Thankyou for your advice. Now I wondered if anyone has coordinates for stopovers at each port or nearby. Also is there an aire between Gijon and Salamanca please?
    Never done this route so it will be a new experience rather than driving through France and Spain to reach Algeciras.Excited about being Morocco bound again.

    You can stop at Poole ferry port before or after boarding the ferry, when you queue up at port, over to the far right there is a cafe, toilets/showers and you can park against building for £5 per night, there is also water tap & elsan empty point. We have stayed there several times

    Stopped at the ferry port at beginning of November before ferry home . Perfect and free now. Asked at BF office and she told us was free and gave directions . Cafe closed but toilets and showers spotless and heated. Never saw the elsan point but didn't need it. J
