Situated on the North and Southbound of the A1(M). The service area is operated by Moto and there are Travelodge hotels on both the north and southbound sides. A pedestrian footbridge connects the two sides of the services.

Southbound the services sit in the middle of J64 of the A1(M) with traffic wishing to exit onto the A195(M) having to take the same exit as the services. Traffic exiting the services going south has to cross the A195(M) to reach the A1(M)

The services are named after the nearby town of Washington. When the local authority boundaries were revised, the boundary for Gateshead was drawn to follow the perimeter fence of the southbound services so both sides are administratively within Gateshead. Over the boundary fence is administered by Sunderland.
