Hi All,

I've got to collect the better half from Stansted Airport at nearly midnight in a couple of weeks' time, and as I will be in the van on my way back from a trip up North, it would make sense to do a quick overnight somewhere and drive on the next day.

So, does anyone have any bright ideas? Can't be a site/CS/CL etc as we'll be too late arriving.

Thanks.

You need the POI Download with all the sites for Wild Camping .. Not that expensive to join and will give you loads of others for the future. Looks like there a three within 5 miles of Airport.

There is this spot (urban parking):

Or a pub stop (Three Horseshoes) here:

The pub's phone number is 01279 813429, and it's advisable to ring to confirm before turning up ...

The EASIEST place just for an over-night stop is the rest area on the A120 Colchester-bound...dunno how quiet it is as busy road & HGV 's use it, but just down the road. There's a height barrier on the 'car' section but is high enough for My Transit Coachbuilt to get under easily.......Loos open too!

Thanks all.

It'll probably be the stop on the A120, which I'd also spotted on Google maps.
