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.
Brand new is The Merry Lads, on the edge of the Peak Distict, five miles west of Sheffield. This attractive stone building has humble beginnings as a cow shed, that started serving beer to thirsty workers building the Redmires Reservoirs in 1833. It's a six-minute walk to the bus stop, with buses running into Sheffield every ten minutes on weekdays, 20 minutes on Sundays.
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 Inn. Finally, don’t miss the handsome Seven Wives in St Ives, and the Tarrington Arms, a lovely 16th-century public house located close to Hereford.
The facilities offered by each location vary – you should contact the individual location to confirm if you need something specific – but each is a fully licenced, safe, legal stopover 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.
