Default Help with overnight stop.

My Mum and step father are travelling up to meet us in Kent to go over to France next week.

They are coming up the M4 and are looking for a stop somewhere off the M4 on the English side of the Bridge.

They are talking about stopping at services but I am not keen on that.

Any ideas for a night stop?

Only criteria really is that it needs to be close to the motorway.

Thanks.

If they are in the Caravan Club there is a CL 2 miles off the M4/M5 intersection at Almondsbury http://horthamfarm.co.uk/

If they want to travel a bit further on, to J17, Chippenham turn off, 25 minutes will then get them to C&CC Devizes, which I can recommend.

We use this one as a stop off going to the tunnel it is 148 miles from home we live in Pembrokeshire 4miles or so north of the
Cleddau bridge. it is a caravan club cl no electric 4 per night, you leave M4 J 18 onto the A46 Bath in 3/4miles turn left and site is a few hundred yards on your left.

Thanks, we have all been there but they think it's a bit too far off the motorway for them.

Yes thanks. I suggested that but they say it isn't far enough.

I will pass that on. Thank you very much.

They are setting off from very near to you - Hundleton just outside Pembroke.

Thanks all
