Todhills Rest Area is a rest area in between Junctions 44-45 of the M6 motorway in England.[1] It is the last Services northbound on the M6 and the first southbound. It was first opened in the 1980s on the A74. When the M6 was extended in 2008, it was initially believed that Todhills would need to close so the road could be widened, but this did not prove to be the case, and the widening scheme was completed without having to close the rest area.

Todhills is not classed as a Service Station because it only has one shop. Since 2008, Todhills is the second of only two rest areas in England, the first being Brent Knoll on the M5 (now Sedgemoor). Both sides have fuel stations, and southbound contains a hotel.

The rest area provides the following services:
