Trip from SW France to Stranraer Scotland

Jump to last reply

My husband, myself and two dogs are returning to Northern Ireland at the end of May.
As we have two dogs we will be travelling by car. We will be travelling from a place called Albi Midi-Pyrénées in S.W. France to Calais and then to Folkstone by Eurotunnel. We will probably take 2 - 3 days travelling in France before we get to the Eurotunnel in Calais as it is about 9+ hours drive.
Travelling in France is not difficult for stopovers with dogs, most budget hotels accept dogs, so we won't have a problem there.
I would like advice about stopovers travelling from Folkstone to Stranraer, I think we would need at least one stopover as I believe it would take about 8 hours or more, and what would be the best route. Once we get to Stranraer, then its a short ferry sailing to Northern Ireland and we are home.

Thanks to anyone with information or advice.
