Not All Service Stations Are Created Equal

It feels particularly odd to be writing an article about a motorway service station, but this one really is something extraordinary. The newly built facilities between junctions 12 and 11a of the M5 Northbound have been stunningly crafted to blend into the rolling countryside.  Step inside and you’ll be won-over by the beautiful architecture and plethora of fantastic local produce.  Not only are they stocking goods from 130 local suppliers (within 30 miles) and 70 regional suppliers (within 30-50 miles), but they’re fairly competitively priced too!

I’m starting to wish I commuted…

Gloucester Service Station

Why here?  Because ‘Gloucestershire and its surrounding counties are practically unrivalled in the quality and abundance of their food produce’.   

I’m so glad I popped in to satisfy my curiosity, I’m certainly feeling proud to live in Gloucestershire.

Now imagine if all motorway services were like this…
