a few years ago i went down to cornwall and some lovely mumsnetter advised stopping at a garden centre on route which had a nice cafe and a nice playground with a pirate ship..called Sanders garden world off M5.it was a while back though
We stopped at a sweet place in Somerset last September. Can't remember the name but a quick google (ignoring the result from our friends at pistonheads recommending it as a dogging spot...) suggests it is Cartgate. Not much to it but the cafe was nice and it was a pleasant non-chain spot to stop for a
Nine springs at Yeovil is nice . Good playground and walks through the woods . Pizza hut is close as well for a spot of lunch . Shaftsbury is nice as well . I live near a30 and trying to think of more .
Ditto!! Going from Yorkshire, normally do the whole thing in one big drive with a couple of service station stops but playgrounds / picnic areas would be much more civilised! So watching with interest.
We're driving to Cornwall for the half term and looking for a nice place to stop off, ideally with a playground or something to steatch legs. Does anyone have any tips??? We're taking the A30 and want to stop past Yeoville ideally.
