Originally a small offer on the A34 southbound, Chieveley grew to become a full service area at the complex M4 interchange.

There are two car parks at Chieveley services:
- There is a long stay car park on the left as you enter, signposted Travelodge. Here cars must pay £16 and HGVs, caravans and motorhomes £30. HGVs can pay £32 to include a £10 food voucher. The location code is 2433.
- The parking in front of the restaurants and shops (on the right as you come in) costs £25 for stays over two hours. The location code is 2482.
If you don't see the long stay parking on your way in then you have to leave the services and navigate the roundabout network to make your way back in. There is no way to drive to the long stay parking once you have reached the short stay car park.

Trivia and History
Full details: History:Chieveley
Like most M4 services, Chieveley was discussed on Gavin and Stacey, where Smithy says of it "Chieveley's the best, it's insane".
In 2010 the AA pointed out that the fuel at Chieveley cost 7p more than a local garage one mile away. Moto blamed BP for the prices, while BP blamed Moto. The forecourt is managed by Moto on behalf of BP.
Chieveley services evolved out of many attempts to build a double-sided service area on the A34 - see the full history.
