Cullompton was recently refurbished but it is only signed from the northbound side so as not to overload the junction. Southbound traffic can access it from J28 just like northbound.
First two hours free for all vehicles. 24 hours parking for cars is rumoured to be £10. Further information is not available, pleaseif you know.
Cullompton is a very small service area and it's built on the site of an old station yard. It's one of two services owned by Extra but leased out to McDonald's, the other being Blackburn with Darwen.
The services have just finished being refurbished. The changes included a new toilet block with showers, more parking and improved petrol facilities. Whilst making the changes the facilities available were extremely reduced.
In May 2012, Visit England rated the services as 3 stars.
In August 2011, Visit England rated the services as 2 stars, making it one of the worst-rated.
The services came last in Holiday Which? Magazine's survey in 2006, as they said it was "little more than a McDonald's next to a petrol station", and it had unflushed toilets with broken seats and broken locks. But Cullompton fought back - see BBC News.
