Mine went on holiday, too (a bit of extra load, I suppose, and a pothole).

After a couple of stops and visual checks, I satisfied myself (though not the OH!) that nothing drastic was happening, and continued 50 miles. When I took it in to Kwikfit and described the nasty knocking sound, he immediately said, "Oh, Megane/Scenic, it's the right-hand rear shock absorber snapped; they all go." (105k on mine).

He recommended replacing the pair, all done in an hour for 120.
