THIS is the stunning motorway service station so beloved by celebs that they would drive up the M6 just to visit.
Comedian Frank Skinner discussed his love of the stopover with Clare Balding and Coleen Rooney on yesterday's edition of The One Show.
Tebay Services Farmshop and Kitchen sits between junctions 38 and 39 of the major route as it curves through Cumbria en route to Scotland.
Set in open countryside, the services are far from the dour, concrete and glass blocks with which many motorists are all too familiar.
The building offers panoramic views of rural Cumbria, broken only by green and luscious trees.
And the interior is just as nice, with large glass windows overlooking a duck pond and airy, high-ceiling rooms.

As the name suggests, there is a farm shop on the banks of a lake while the kitchen serves freshly cooked food made with local ingredients.
With a look of delight on his face, Frank told presenters Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas: "Now Tebay. I'm glad you said that as I wasn't sure if it existed, or if I had dreamt Tebay."
He added that he had taken a trip there, presumably expecting astandardly grim service station experience, only to be greeted by a quaint farmer's market.
It's not Frank's first time expressing his love for the place either.
