Site locations


We are committed to providing a totally satisfying rest-stop experience at all 6 new motorway service stations. The sites will vary slightly in size but all will provide a full range of amenities to service the range of customer needs.

Large restroom facilities including showers and baby changing units are being built to the highest specification. The 1,200 - 1,500 square metre buildings will include a large Applegreen convenience store and 3 food offers catering for all tastes, with up to 240 seats, and a further 38 seats outside. Children will also be catered for with an 80 sq. metre play area. All other everyday needs such as Wi-Fi Access, Phone top-up, Lottery, Toll tags, ATM, NRA and Tourist information areas are also included. In short, we have designed a facility which is based on our wide experience which fulfils the needs of all types of customers. Of course the things Applegreen is most associated with such as low fuel prices, great food to go and the best coffee on the road will still be available and our aim is to provide them in a setting which give our customers a top class rest stop experience.
