SELF DRIVE STOPOVERS

If you want to break your journey visit www.sawdays.co.uk for B & B accommodation in interesting places en route. From large chateaux to tiny cottages you will find many places just a short drive from the main motorway routes.

If you literally just want a pillow to put your head on, then a 24 hour budget hotel should suffice. Click on www.hotelformule1.com or www.ibishotel.com for further info. You will find one or other of these hotel chains near most major motorway 'town' exits or attached to the motorway service stations. You will also find these places very cheap but they do get booked up quickly, especially during peak times, so we strongly advise booking in advance.
