This summer we have used the SeaFrance ferry quite regularly, and can recommend the Brasserie on board as a good lunch stop. We will be back to the Eurotunnel for the winter, having enough Tesco Clubcard deals for a couple of free crossings. Eurotunnel is great if you are travelling with your dog, as you can stay in the car with them.
We have arranged to have the telephone line and broadband installed for the winter. This should allow us to respond to our rental queries more quickly, and guests can check weather forecasts etc.
