    Hello
    We are travelling down to Brighton from Edinburgh and are going to leave after work tonight to break the journey, any suggestions of a good stop over spot near the M6. I reckon we will get to Preston area maybe a bit more South in around 3 hours so that will be about 9ish tonight. Do campsites let you arrive that late?
    Thanks

    We don't really mind, we are 7.5 metres plus bikes and have 3 kids under 9 so it needs to be safe, are the truck stops safe at night?
    Thanks

    Hi

    Not quite so far down there is a site at Tebay services. Have used this a few times, you also get vouchers for meals at a discount.

    If you book they seem to take late arrivals no problem, but not cheap.

    This is an independent service stop not your usual stop food V good
