Tebay services has been named as the second best service station in the country, being beaten by Gloucester.

The survey was carried out by Kia.com and analysed factors such as Google reviews, amenities, parking costs and aesthetics.

With a Google Review score of 4.4 and a variety of shops, Tebay managed to fend off competition from the likes of Oxford and Cornwall.

The conductors of the research said: "Standout amenities include a farm shop with a butcher's counter, cheese counter and deli counter, along with a caravan park for those looking for overnight stays.

"Tebay also features outdoor dining options, picnic spots, a duck pond and dog walking areas, all with stunning aesthetics that make the area a welcomed stop for motorists."

One reviewer went on to say that they did not expect a service station to be so relaxing, describing it as the nicest they have ever been to.
