Welcome to UK Pub Stopovers
What are Pub Stopovers?
Pub stopovers are a great alternative to campsites for overnight motorhome parking. They are not 'campsites' though so should not be confused. They are merely pre-ageed locations to park and sleep overnight whilst on your travels.
In Europe there are thousands of 'Aires' which are specifically designed for the motorhome traveller. These are official parking areas for motorhomes to stay for a limited period so, again, they are not to be confused with campsites where extended stays are possible and are of course paid for. The UK does not have any proper system of 'Aires', preferring to make overnight motorhome parking as difficult as possible it seems. So an alternative is to use agreeable pubs' and other interesting business's carparks.
Our listings contain over 270 motorhome friendly pubs and other interesting locations where this type of parking is possible.
There are guidelines that members are expected to follow when using these facilities and these can be read here.
Each location is free to make a charge (or not) and it is for the user to establish what the chosen premises's requirements are, hence the guideline to contact them prior to arrival.
How to get the information
The listings of agreeable motorhome friendly pubs and stopover locations are free to subscribers of the Club Motorhome website - Joining Club Motorhome is necessary to access the information.
Do we supply a book?
Not exactly but..... the information is all on the website. Each page is printable and/or saveable as a PDF file to your computer for use offline. We don't plan to produce books as this will lead to an increase in costs to provide the information. Also in our experience books can get lent/copied/distributed and, it is our intention to attract motorhomers to join Club Motorhome to get the information for themselves.
A book dates very quickly whereas our information online is as up-to-date as you could hope for with new locations added frequently and member feedback promptly published on the locations themselves.
However! We have now produced a .pdf document of all the county listings - this can be downloaded and carried with you to use offline! UK Pub Stopover Offline Document This link opens on the Club Motorhome website - You need to subscribe to get the document.

Why pay to get a list of pubs and other stopover locations?
The pub stopover information is just part of the membership benefits of being a subscriber to Club Motorhome.
Anybody can call into a potentially suitable pub and ask permission themselves, but what we supply is information IN ADVANCE of known pubs (and other places) that can accommodate motorhomes overnight. This means that with phone numbers, address and postcode, email address (where available) and GPS co-ordinates our members know exactly where they will be staying at the end of a day's driving and not leaving it to chance with all the stress that brings to a journey.
In addition every location listed has its own webpage on Club Motorhome which displays a Google Map of its location with Street View (where available) so its possible to preview the location in advance too.
A subscription to Club Motorhome seems a small price to pay!
