Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink
The UK’s newest motorway services opened today (7 May) in Gloucestershire. Gloucester Services is on the northbound lane of the M5 between junctions 11a and 12. Forget limp lettuce and stodgy puds, this is quite different. Gloucester Services is not just another motorway service area. It is the sister of the well-known Tebay Services in Cumbria, Britain’s favourite service station and it has no franchises. Instead it offers an oasis of homemade food and local artisan produce; all the suppliers are from the South West and 130 are within a 30 miles radius of the services, including from the Forest of Dean. If you are travelling North on the M5, make your stop at Gloucester Services and visit the Farm Shop and the kitchen, we think you will enjoy it. Whilst you are there pick up a copy of our latest Attractions Guide and also our popular Eating Out Guide. Next time, plan your journey to include a visit to us to see what the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean has for you!
