AS the nation gets moving again, Westmorland Family is really looking forward to greeting our customers old and new.

We welcome you with open arms to Tebay Services and are glad to be part of your British summer holidays.

Tebay Services grew out of our family farm in Westmorland when the M6 was built through it nearly 50 years ago.

The temporary closure of our farmshops and kitchens during the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed just how deeply those roots reach into their local communities. In our businesses we have 1,300 colleagues, whose jobs depend upon our success.

We work with wonderful small producers, more than 400 farmers, growers and makers, whose success depends upon our success because we are often their principal outlet.

We contribute to local community causes, last year raising more than £850,000, and can only continue to do so when we thrive. When you visit our places we are sure that you will feel safe and relaxed. We have taken time to reopen carefully and responsibly, so we can give total assurance to our customers and colleagues that we are protecting them with leading-edge hygiene measures.

As we restart our business, Westmorland is more determined than ever to stand up for local, sustainable, nourishing food.

Lockdown has given us a chance to appreciate what’s on our doorsteps: local produce, local communities and local landscapes. It has reminded us of the things we really value, such as the pleasures of sharing good food with family and friends.

The way we eat, cook, shop and travel makes a difference. Please join us on The Road Better Travelled.
