I think that I've asked this before---but;
Sue and I are wanting to visit the national arboretum on Friday but intend to travel over tomorrow and come back on Saturday / Sunday. I've 'phoned the N A but they lock the car park and do not allow overnighting, so can anyone suggest a nice spot / pub for me and her ladyship to sleep--
Thanks friends

There is a Pub stop at Barton-under-Needwood, it is only seven minutes away, I have never stayed there though so cannot tell you if it is good, it looks OK

Tezza33 is dead right. We went to the Abouratum last week.The parking area is next to the canal on Left/side of bridge which you go over also there is a Pub on r/hand corner We had no problems at all, it takes about 10 mins to get to the arbouratum.The is some place, it will take you all day to go round. Hope you have good. day.Big H.

I migrated from "darn sarf" late 97, bought a house, married and inseminated (might not have been in that order) :) still learning the language though, didn't think it was going to be that important, as I intended to teach the kids proper English but failed cos I had not reckoned on the schools influence (typical immigrant).
