From the M5 to Meadows18 Apr 2017
If you are planning on taking a holiday in the West Country this summer, the chances are you’ll face the M5 at some point. Imagine the journey; the rare English sun is blazing through the window, roasting you like an ant as the car crawls along at 15 miles an hour in the holiday traffic. The kids are arguing over who gets the iPad next, then uh-oh, someone spills apple juice all over the screen. You haven’t eaten since last night because packing the car took over breakfast time. Someone is screaming. It’s you.
Time for a break.
Instead of getting out to stretch your weary limbs at a service station, why not stop off somewhere you can get a genuinely local, home-made, hot meal as well as a breath of country air?
Open Monday - Saturday 9.00am - 6.00pm (with last orders at 5 pm) and Sunday 9.00am - 5.30pm, Meadows Restaurant and Tea Rooms is free to enter, and has ample parking just outside and isn’t more than 5 minutes’ drive from Junction 21 near Weston-super-Mare.
Breakfast is available until 11.30; then lunch offers a range of healthy kid’s meals, hearty adult portions using meat sourced from Puxton farms, then there’s hot drinks, cakes, and snacks. There’s even a Tractor Ted play area for the kids to let off some steam (that is, if you don’t want to come into the adventure park itself). Grab toys, merchandise, fresh food and supplies for the journey from our farm shop on your way out.
All Puxton farm pastures are totally organic, and the venue is run from solar panels and boasts a sedum roof, so you get to have a completely guilt-free break from all that driving. And why not? After all, you are on holiday.
