M5

The latest in Westmorland’s quiet motorway service revolution, this is a purpose-built Farmshop & Kitchen that blends in with its surroundings: natural stone walls, rugged landscaping and a grass roof over the timber-vaulted main building. A remarkable place.

Step inside the atrium to meet counters heaving with sandwiches, pies, stews, pastries, cakes and the reassuring burr of a barista coffee machine. All the produce is locally sourced – they work with over 130 producers within 30 miles of the services. Enormous scrubbed tree trunks hanging overhead in a unique light underscore the Westmorland family’s connection to the land. Seating overlooks a tranquil nature reserve and pond area, plus there’s a rustic play area.

The Farmshop flanking the café on either side is impressive: from wild-boar pies on the deli counter to wooden spinning tops, heavenly macarons and enamelware. Forget petrol station flowers: this is the place to get emergency gifts.
