Recommended Services on A17

Recommended Posts

We are travelling from West Yorkshire to near Fakenham, Norfolk and I was wondering if there were any recommended places to stop en route for leg stretch and/or toilet stop..... or are there any to avoid?

 

Thanks
Richard

If you want just a basic lay by there is a large one just before sleaford roundabout on the left hand side when traveling from Newark on the A17. It’s behind the ministry testing place, it’s flat and level and easy to park and off of the road so not buffeted by passing trucks. 

Ps if you want more then that , the farm cafe at fleet hargate on A17 with its farm shop and cafe etc is quite good. That’s on the left as you’re traveling there is 2 cafés either side of the road owned by 2 brothers.  One has planes the other has tractors outside.

Watch out for weight watchers  (the dvsa testing station you mention) ive seen caravans in there before parked up probably on prohibition.

To be fair it’s not that active a station now. Probably have not got enough police to pull them in .
