Trivia and Design

Cherwell Valley is one of very few service areas not be named after a precise settlement. At the time it opened, developers were paying a lot of attention to landscaping, and liked suffixes such as "Park", "Green" and "Valley" which helped create the image of a tranquil resting spot.
There is a very large dog walking area at the back of the service area, although its entrance isn't obvious and for a long time there wasn't any prominent signage. This has a very winding public footpath connection to Stoke Wood and Banbury Road.
The building itself now uses a contemporary layout with large windows along the front, and a series of units along the back. This opened in 2011 and replaced the previous building, which had all its windows along the back, facing the garden. That previous design had a pitched roof that had been compared with the supermarkets of that era, but the building was eventually destroyed by a fire.
The forecourt is operated separately, with its own food offer, including the motorway network's first ASDA store.
A 2011 report highlighted that Cherwell Valley had only a 6% turn-in rate, compared with 10% at Warwick. The complicated entry arrangement is likely to be the main factor.
Planning permission is held to build four more electric vehicle charging points beside the forecourt.
