    If you have the postcode, try a search on Travelodge, Premier Inn, or Holiday Inn express, or just use google to look up B&Bs in the area. Otherwise UK Campsite.co.uk is pretty good for finding campsites (not sure if I would want to prepare for an interview staying in a tent the night before!)

    Dont trainees get a special rate at a nearby hotel? Someone I know has training this weekend and she said this is what she is doing, works out cheaper than a travelodge.

    It's in Derbyshire, Alfreton I think. I should get my inlaws to open their spare room as a B&B, they could make a fortune from SW trainees.:D

    thank you for all the ideas the main reason for not going into b&b is because dh will be doing all the driving and its not going tobe much fun for him being chucked out of a b&b or travel lodge and have to find things to do for 2 days...oh and the tent isnt one you have to crawl through the flap to get into :)

    He won't get chucked out during the day if you have that room booked for several?

    If you ask HQ I am sure they will have a list of local hotels.

    Or look at lastminute.com for bargains.

    If youre staying a few days he can stay in the room as long as he wants, TLs are ideal, he can have a lie in, watch telly, get online :) Much comfier than a tent, and you wont need to worry about the weather :)

    i'd go for the hotel they arrange for you cos its such a long day. We travelled there for a 9am start and didnt finish till gone 6 the first day, then was up and back at HQ for 8:30 day 2. the hotel is literally a 2 minute drive away with a pool that is really refreshing after all that training

    Hi,I live just down the road from Emma and agree with her but there are a couple of campsites close by http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/townlisting.asp?town=Alfreton No idea what they are like. Not sure when you are going but it is throwing it down with rain at the moment and the thought of being in a tent in this weather is not a good one.

    Yes, I'm five minutes away from Alfreton and would agree that a tent may not be a good idea, the ground is very, very wet as we have had continual rain for days now, sometimes very heavy, I've had to resort to walking my dogs in wellies again and some of the areas are getting flooded. There travel lodges are quite good round here, there is a small one in Sutton which is not too far away
