Why stay here ...

Situated right on the edge of an elegant spa town, Cheltenham Racecourse Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

No Frills

Cheltenham Racecourse Club Campsite
I would describe it as a no frills campsite, but one I will stay again at. Showers and toilets spotless. Welcoming team helpful and you get a lovely view across the racecourse. The price reflects the no frills, so if you want plush book elsewhere. Make sure if you get the park and ride into Cheltenham you venture to the Montpellier area ( south) as where you get of the bus is not Cheltenham's 'selling point'. I recommend Sam's for a bite to eat and John Gordons for a nice glass of something, both in Montpellier area

Not my cup of tea

Cheltenham Racecourse Club Campsite
As with all the Club sites we were met by friendly wardens and as it was our first visit to the site they gave a full run down of pitches and facilities etc. Most of the pitches were on a slope and on concrete. We had booked a standard pitch with awning, so we were on grass but even then struggled to get level. The facilities were clean and ok but half the toilet cubicles were closed no mention anywhere why. There was a function on at the Course one of the days which was quite noisy and to sit outside wasn’t very pleasant. The best bits are the view of the course and the location for visiting Cheltenham.

Fantastic iconic site

Cheltenham Racecourse Club Campsite
Three night stay over the bank holiday weekend. Having attended the races at Cheltenham for nearly 40 years, this was our first time staying at the site and absolutely loved our time here. The wonderful wardens (Phil and Debs - the best and nicest we have come across anywhere), the fantastic views across the racecourse towards Cleeve Hill from our pitch, the spotlessly clean toilet, shower and washing facilities, the walk around the racecourse itself, Prestbury village a 10 min walk away, the Gloucester and Warwickshire Heritage Railway a 5 min walk away - the list goes on. An added bonus was the Wychwood Festival taking place at the racecourse (CAMC site in in Foster's enclosure, festival other side by Tattersalls) which could be enjoyed from outside the van. Would fully recommend a visit and will definitely return.

The friendliest site!

Cheltenham Racecourse Club Campsite
We stayed over the jubilee bank holiday, as a party of 3 couples. On arrival, we was invited to a Jubilee get together at reception the following day, by the very welcoming wardens Debs and Phil. Beer, Prosecco and nibbles were provided, and a fun jubilee quiz to take part in. We ended up taking our chairs to reception and stayed all afternoon! We had a great time, a lovely atmosphere, and we really enjoyed chatting with the other guests. We even arranged to meet back later with some of them and walked to the nearby park together for the evening celebrations there! The site has fantastic views, spotlessly clean and in a great position. It is definitely the wardens though who make this site special, Debs and Phil are the most friendliest we have met, and we will return to stay with them again! Thanks for a fab stay!

Wonderful site

Cheltenham Racecourse Club Campsite
Visited this site a few times pre pandemic and couldn't wait to return last week. It's a wonderful site, with beautiful views...just wish it was open all year round! Walking distance in to Cheltenham, which is great. Also, a little village 15 mins walk part way round the course is worth a visit as had 3 x excellent pubs (Prestbury?) Facilities are spotless as are the pitches. A special mention to the site staff...especially the lovely lady that knitted all the Royal characters on display in reception in readiness for the Jubilee weekend. She and her husband are some of the nicest wardens we've encountered. We hope to return very soon. Thank you.
