Rest break


7 posts in this topic

Hi, does anybody know if there are any safe places to stop for a break on the A303 between the M3 and Exeter towing a caravan. We intend traveling during the night as it should be far more peaceful and far less traffic.

Many thanks in anticipation.

I would have a look on Google Earth, seem to remember that there was a big layby near Holton on the A303, but some time back.

There's a big rest area on the A303 at Cartgate near Yeovil. It's just right of a roundabout and well signed. I'd imagine it gets quite busy at night though

Thank you for your input, that sounds like a perfect plan. We also prefer to travel at night mainly because the traffic would be a lot lighter, it's more peaceful with less grief from other traffic cutting you up and riding on your back bumper and better for the dog just in case we get a shock and the sun comes out.

Many thanks for all the replies.
