Notes: An unusual combination - a service area which also describes itself as "Cumbria's leading family day out". It's owned by Westmorland and has its own website. It is also very close to an unsigned Little Chef/Burger King/Travelodge site just down the A66. An Ecotricity charging point is due to be installed here soon.
The filling station is open 24hrs
