So, after another long Campsite season we have finally left Site Just a few bits and pieces to do then next week we head down to Southern Spain and some much needed Winter Sun
Our final week on site was just continuous rain and strong winds But to be fair, I don't think that there are too many places anywhere in UK that haven't had the bad weather, some worse than others at least Southern Spain is basking in sunshinelovely in cornwall today .
had a nice m,bike ride and its nice and warm in the sun.
mind had some horrible rainy days .
have a good one bm.
Hi Paul, to be fair, we always travel around this time each year and sail into Northern Spain so cannot real give you any advice on that route. A lot will depend on how much snow they have and how fast they clear it, but they are pretty good at keeping the main routes open in the Winter.Lucky man BM
We are currently on a site near Great Yarmouth, it’s not Spain but it’s only £6.55 a night all in so I am not complaining.
We are driving to Spain in mid January - what would you say is the easiest way across the Pyrenees at that time of year, any idea?
Thanks for that Alan, time to get the map out I think.years ago my favourite route was roscoff ,angers ,anguleme, perigueux, nice by the river there watching otters. then across to sarlat la canacda, then to gourdon park by the lake just north of gourdon. then down throughmontauban,toulouse,saverdun,go past saverdun then turn right and head north for the town there is a good layby aire type parking there.
from there head for foix then andorra . fuel up etc then go through andorra ,before you get to la seu d,urgell turn left on the n260 and head for martinet good parking on the right as you enter the area by a river.
the road to andorra is abit zig zaggy but the scenery is fantastic .

hope they work .
mind was about 30yrs ago we used them every winter. later we just caught the ferry to santander.
This is also our plan (if it all comes together) leaving just before the new year after a stay in Cornwall for xmas. Booked a holiday cottage to take the family .So, we are getting the Tunnel then driving down through France. We have about 3 months for this trip so no rush anyway.
We have only ever managed to get a cabin once.you can get pet friendly cabins on some of brittany ferries ships .
did cross on one once although i didnt have a dog then .
capt finistere. was ok. but i had to drive to portsmouth .
prefer plymouth really.
does seem like plymouth isnt running again in the winter .
