Car parking just off the M20 for a day

I am going with my sister to France this Saturday and we will just be taking my car through the tunnel. So we would like somewhere to meet and park her car for the day just off the M20 between the M26 and the tunnel.

Any ideas please?

I've used this place as a good rendezvous before - it's just off the last junction before the tunnel turn-off. There is unrestricted parking on the road outside the pub if you don't want to use the pub itself

Thank you for that. I might try contacting the pub and offer to pay for parking there.

Thanks. £5 for the day seems OK

She is coming from Blackheath so will be travelling down the M20. Then we join the M20 at its junction with the M26. So anywhere between the M26 and the tunnel is fine to meet.

You could try this

The places I was otherwise going to suggest, will not work for you sadly.

Thanks for all the suggestions. We used Stop 24 which was very convenient and a safe place to leave the car for the day.

Yes we had a good day. Got put on an earlier train which promptly went sick on us so we ended up leaving at our booked time. Hit the market which I found disappointing, only one cheese stall and that was not inspiring so went to a cheese shop instead. Had a lovely lunch at Le Channel. Then filled the car with wine, Armagnac and diesel. Headed back to the train and again caught an earlier train, which did not die on us.
