Trivia and History
Full details: History:Cherwell Valley
A large dog walking area/riverside walk has always existed down the side of the services, but was only recently given prominent signage.
In 2016, Moto refurbished the M&S Simply Food store and it gained a new M&S Coffee to Go machine in the process.
In 2013 and 2014 the services won a platinum loo award.
In May 2013, Cherwell Valley gained its first 5 star rating from Visit England. It was also Moto's first 5 star rating.
Cherwell Valley was the national motorway service area winner in the 2012 Loo of the Year Awards.
In May 2012, Visit England rated the services as 4 stars. In August 2011, they gave them 3 stars, but it's not clear which building they were grading. The new one was said to have the best design of any service area.
In 2006 the services were graded 4/5 by Holiday Which?.
In 2005 and again in 2006, the services won a five star loo award.
