Sites Near Junctions 3 To 18 On M1 With Late Arrivals Area


Recommended Posts

Hi there:

 

We'll be towing down from Scotland in June and we're looking for a decent site with a late arrivals area (as we'll be arriving near midnight) near any Junction from J18 to J3 on the M1. Better still if it had somewhere for young kids (5 years and 3 years) to run around in the morning.

 

Any suggestions Folks?

Ahhh!..... Rather not stay at a Moptorway Service Area because of the need to let the young ones run around outside before we start on the next leg of the journey

 

A motorway service area?

There is Billing Aquadrome at Northampton, a few minutes from the M1 along the A45 at junction 15. Not the best site and may be expensive for one night.

 

Are you in either of the major clubs? Only they have sites not too far from M1 junctions together with numerous CS/CL sites.

Stop earlier :P

 

There is nothing close to the M1 motorway between J14 and J3 other than CC at Hemel Hempstead, J9, which does not have a late arrival area and is situated in a narrow lane. Thought of using the A1, the CC site at Peterborough is close?

Depends where your final destination is. ..one of the ferry ports?

 

Me? I never use the M1 but prefer the M8 - M74 - M6. You might then consider the M5 - M42 with a stop at CC site Chapel Lane J3 M42 which has a late arrival then onto the M40 and all points south. Chapel Lane very handy just off the M42

 

I do this a fair few times. It's a 6 -7 hr haul from Bathgate with a stop at Tebay South for tea depending on traffic.
