    Hi
    I am off to France weekend of 25/07 with my 2 children and have booked the tunnel late on the Saturday afternoon and will arrive in France around 21:00.

    My question is I am heading down the Rouen direction (as need to get to Tours for Sunday afternoon) but wondered what good and safe options I had for stopping on the Saturday night somewhere with EHU.

    I understand most campsites will not allow me on after 8pm so if anyone could provide any information on aires etc that would be most helpful.

    Many thanks in advance

    An Aire with available EHU after 21:00 on a Saturday night in late July is a bit of a tall order to be honest, not least because of weekenders filling up the spaces. Are you sure you couldn't manage on 12v for one night? There's any number of options available if you can.

    I should add that if any nearby campsites have a late arrivals area with EHU that might be your best bet. The site at Guines near Calais is well used to Brits coming and going to and from ferries - maybe they're open a bit later?

    If I were doing that journey then, I would head west and go through Rouen at night and find an aire south of the town renowned for traffic jams and delays.

    Also, do you really need EHU for one night?

    The farm has two other sites close by, but no EHU. I can definitely recommend the farm itself though. A boulangerie van calls round in the mornings too

    Mike,

    Click on the link above for the web site. The parking before the barn is without EHU. There are a few multiple hook-up points found by going to the left of the barn, one almost immediately on your right, one just round the corner at the end and a third at the furthest corner. The payment is made at the house which is behind the trees to the right of the barn. When we were there in early May, the farmer's wife brought round some lovely lobster for sale. Sadly, my wife had already started work on our meal.

    Last thing, I telephoned as soon as I got off the shuttle to let him know our time of arrival as we were a bit on the late side.
