Why stay here ...

Situated right on the edge of an elegant spa town, Cheltenham Racecourse Club Site is a desirable site and the perfect base from which to explore the delights of the area. The town of Cheltenham is just one and a half miles from the caravan site through a nearby park, or you can use the convenient regular transport service provided by the Park and Ride. The site is also well placed for visiting the city of Gloucester with its Cathedral and other historic buildings. 50 of the 76 pitches on site are hardstanding so you have a very good chance of securing a hardstanding pitch which gives you more opportunity to tour even when the weather is bad!

Cheltenham Racecourse Club Site puts a wealth of fun activities within easy reach. With its tree-lined promenade and colonnaded buildings, the Regency Spa town is an absolute pleasure for the pedestrian. Regent Arcade provides a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants and you will want to take in the sight of the delightful Wishing Fish Clock. The Everyman Theatre is available for those wanting to experience a little culture as well as enjoying the scenic views of its well maintained gardens. Why not experience the thrill of the races? Famed for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, held every year in March, the racecourse has fixtures throughout the year. All in all, the caravan site offers enough memorable attractions to keep visitors returning time and again.

Excellent

Excellent site, small and quiet. Wonderful views. Good facilities and very friendly helpful staff, who were relief wardens at the time of our visit. Good site for a Motorhome user as easy access to nearby park and ride to visit Cheltenham. Nice walk across the racecourse to the steam railway, lovely few hours on the steam train to Broadway and back. Good dog walking around the outside of the race course . Lovely country pubs walking distance. Enjoyed our visit will return.

Great views

This site has fantastic views over the the racecourse to the hills. There is a park and ride stop very close by and it’s only a short ride into the town centre. There are grass pitches and lots of hard standing on the forecourt areas in front and behind the stands. Good long dog walk all the way round the racetrack. Really lovely spot will definitely go back.

Hot air balloon festival - Cheltenham Racecourse site

We had never been to Cheltenham before and with a hot air balloon festival scheduled for the weekend we decided to stop over for a long weekend. What a great location for motorhome owners, just 1-1/2 miles from the centre of Cheltenham, adjacent to a park and ride and just a short walk to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire steam railway station or to the Pittville Park with its attractions of lake, cafes and children’s playground. It is a great shame this racecourse site with its excellent views has so many severely unlevel pitches especially the hard standing ones with views. It is something I feel the Club should be emphasising in the site description, yet there is only a mention of this in the site's accessibility statement. In spite of the sloping nature of the whole site, without which we would not have had a grandstand view of the balloon festival, we would use this site again just for the excellent access it offers to local facilities. If you do decide to visit this site and want hard stadings, don't forget to bring a healthy collection of levelling blocks.

Excelent Wardens

Due to my son being on a months placement at the Town's hospital, by far the cheapest way for him to stay was to use this site and pitch our motorhome. This came with a few logistical issues but even after the reception should have closed on a Sunday afternoon the Wardens still tried to contact the Club's Head Office to resolve. We finally managed to sort on the Monday morning but cannot thank them enough for their patience and dedication. I have have called and spoken to them a couple of times during the stay and again have resolved my issues without fuss or bother. My thanks goes to them both- sadly I don't know their names but they are a credit to the club wardens The site is spotlessly clean, and has wonderful views- not as a 20 yr old will appreciate them!!!
