Hi all! Well we've booked a lovely cottage in Cornwall for a week in September, but as it's a 5 hour+ drive, with an 11 month old baby, I was thinking we need to stop a couple of times.
Any ideas where we can stop on the way? My partner always wants somethng "prettier" than a service station!
Thanks :-)

J7 of M5, follow signs to Worcester country park (5 min off motorway), cafe and play area

Or Cribbs Causeway is a good place to stop as theres a softplay bit and lots of choice of places to eat

I agree with CMOT about the Country Park on the outskirts of Worcester -I particularly recommend their carrot cake grin

Or there is Slimbridge, off the M5 S of Gloucester - lots of lovely ducks smile

We stopped there once on the way from Dorset to Lancashire - it's great for kids.
