M5 Services/stopover

Whilst travelling down to Exmouth for a dog walking holiday we were looking for a rest area that was dog friendly. We had driven into quite a few that were unsuitable, some were even multi-level car parks.
I can recommend the M5 Gloucester Services. It is just past junction 11A. southbound.
The site has designated dog walk pathways around it. Outside tables and seats under a covered area next to the food hall.
Food quality and range is good although a little expensive and camper 24hour stopover £25.oo

Definitely worth a visit if your looking for a stop. It is even set with a grass covered roof to blend in with the countryside.

They are dear places of course, but somewhere you can feel happy letting dog out would be good as they also aren't normally pedestrian friendly either.
Weather looks OK still this morning outside here at least, where are you going?
