At £5 (£3 until recently), the services have the cheapest car parking ever seen at a UK service station, even if Tiverton isn't a 'proper' service area.
The services are sometimes referred to as 'Sampford Peverell' services.
In 2009 another operator attempted to build a full motorway service area opposite the junction, with the aim being to create a gateway to Mid Devon called 'Junction 27'. The plans had to be scaled down to a rest area as Tiverton complained it would take traffic from their site, even though the developer claimed they were after different markets and Tiverton could benefit from the increased traffic (the two sites would have been connected). The plans were later rejected all-together as the council weren't interested in what they called a "half-measure", and they wanted something bigger to relieve congestion at Cullompton.
The services used to be branded 'Little Chef Lodge'.
