Visited this Easter weekend. Plenty of food outlets but the price is more than normal. Normal for motorway services. Shops are good and plenty of seating inside. Services looked clean and plenty of car park spaces.

The Welcome Break at Woodhall Services is on the northbound and southbound M1 high above Sheffield. The northbound and southbound sites are linked by a bridge so that motorists can use the facilities on either side. The northbound site is small but fairly modern and bright with easy parking with areas to stretch your legs. Inside it was bright and... More

Called in (Northbound) and picked up a bucket of KFC (Triple Bucket deal) to take home (an hour away from the services). There were only four strips in the bucket instead of six and one of the pieces of chicken was rank (smelt and tasted disgusting). My wife says she will never eat KFC again and I think I'll join...

Dropped in for a cup of coffee and tea on our trip between Teesside down to Northampton. Thee is a decent amount of parking outside and this service station is up high so can be cold and rainy. Went to the Starbucks for a drink. Both were aright but given it was a service station they were both a little... More

As far as services go not bad at all. Toilets are modern and as clean as they can make them considering the people who don't seem to know how to wee in the loo not on it and the floor. Good choice of food and a shop for mags etc. One of the better ones.

Went to the Subway at the services. All standard stuff really. It was clean, it wasn't noisy. Fine. We sat in the Starbucks and sometimes they get a bit sniffy about it but there was no issue at all with doing it. There really isn't enough seating in the Subway. Facilities were fine too.
