Need to take a long journey break between the M40 (Warwick) and the M1 (Leicester)

Any recommendations?

It's a 5 hour journey in all so we want to break it into 2 and have 1-2 hours somewhere where DS (18 months) can run around. Half way is from the M40 across to the M1 so does anyone know of anywhere that would suit?

There are garden centres with restaurants, wifi and soft play that are a good alternative to motorway services.

They sound good. That's a better idea than our previous one of heading into Warwick.

I can't find out whether all of them have soft play or playgrounds on their website, so will need to call them I think.

Thank you

On closer inspection, the rugby one is the only one of the three that says it's specifically child friendly

Ah. The garden centre idea is inspired though. I did a quick google and found hilltop garden centre in Coventry. They have a fort!

Thanks so much for the idea.
