Taking the car on the ferry to Brittany
Travelling to Brittany was really straightforward. We'd booked a morning crossing from Plymouth so we left the north west mid-afternoon the day before and stopped off at a popular pub chain with a play centre towards teatime.
We kept a separate overnight bag in the footwell of the car so there was no need to dig around in the boot, and so after some dinner and a quick change into pyjamas for the girls, we continued on to Plymouth with the little ones nodding off nicely in the back. We arrived at our overnight motel by 10pm and managed to transfer the twins swiftly into bed without any real disturbance.
Before we knew it, the alarm was ringing and we arrived at the ferry port in time for an early morning check in at 8am. Without too much of a wait, we were able to board the ferry, park up and head straight for the onboard restaurant where breakfast was being served.
