Our Nightstop scheme, which we run in partnership with the Motor Caravanners’ Club, has
been steadily growing in size, and has just welcomed new locations to
our network. This brings our total up to 29 brilliant Nightstops, all ready and waiting for your visit.

Other recent additions were three locations in
Wales (The Old Barn Inn, the Seaview Hotel and the Penrhiwgaled Arms),
and one that’ll be really handy for exploring the historic delights of
Stratford-upon-Avon (the New Inn Hotel). The Old Hall Hotel is a great
stopover for beach lovers, while beautiful Devon is home to The Castle

The facilities offered by each location vary –
you should contact the individual location to confirm if you need

point for our readers to make the most of next time you’re on tour. All
our locations are certificated CLs, with their licence granted by our
scheme partners the Motor Caravanners’ Club, but you don’t need to be a member of any club to use them. Former MCC chairman Les Kendrick and his wife Joyce are pictured below (photo from the NEC Motorhome & Caravan Show, 2012).
