If it feels different here, it’s because we are. 

Westmorland is a family business, whose original motorway service area grew out of the family farm in Tebay, Cumbria when the M6 was built through our land. Everything we do reflects those beginnings.

Tebay Services, both north and southbound, are built on our 1,000 acre upland farm, Chapel Farm. Chapel Farm was bought by John Dunning’s parents in the 1940’s, although the family had been farming in the locality for many generations.

In our Kitchens we make our own food, as you would make at home. In our Farmshops, we work tirelessly to find small exceptional producers, always starting locally.

In 1976 we built a Hotel. It felt like the next logical thing to further celebrate the connection to our landscapes. We apply the same principles in our Hotel that we do in Farmshops & Kitchens and make all our own food. We’ve future plans for another Hotel at Gloucester Services. 

Rheged is the Northern Gateway to The Lake District, built by John Dunning in 2000, just outside Penrith. There’s nowhere quite like Rheged, where the arts meet good food, family and fun under a green grass roof. It’s where we share every aspect of what we love about our place. Rheged is the home of our new Westmorland kitchen, a huge cinema, and an award winning gallery.

Gloucester Services, which fully opened in 2015, has its own special story. We are a partnership between Westmorland and a local regeneration charity, Gloucestershire Gateway Trust, each with a stake in the business and its impact on local people and communities. Gloucestershire Gateway Trust first developed the idea of a motorway service area on the M5 to provide employment opportunities and a sustainable income for local communities. Our unique partnership delivers up to 3p in every £1 of our non fuel sales to the charity, investing in local community projects and charities.

In 2014 we bought Cairn Lodge, another family business. and we have now made it part of our own family of businesses.
