Arguably the UK's most popular and most famous service station, Tebay is a family-owned site which sits in the Lake District on the M6, consisting of two services offering great views. It has many nice and unique facilities such as a duck pond, a farm shop and a caravan park, and its quality and cleanliness are often praised.

Lorry drivers may prefer the J38 Truckstop, which is also ran by Westmorland and located a few miles to the south at junction 38.

In 2010 the services raised £3,500 for the Cumbria flood appeal.

Tebay is one of the few sites where signage encourages vehicles to use the Rear Access, although 'no entry' signs are also used. This is mainly to serve the hotel and caravan park, which are technically built off-site.

Inside, the lack of advertising or loud colours gives it more in common with some National Trust properties than any other service station. The motorway network's first farm shops were opened here in 2003 by Prince Charles.
