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.

Cheltenham

A really handy site on the racecourse. It's really handy for the town with the park and ride next door so it's 10 minutes into town centre. Nearly all hardstanding and slightly sloping. Facilities well kept but no privacy cubicles in gents.

A useful site if it is what you need it for

We used this site for the Cheltenham Lit Festival over 3 nights. It is all tarmac, grass was out of use, and some of it slopes quite a bit. However the views were good if you parked in the right place. The main advantage for us was it was right next to the Park and Ride which had a good bus service into and out of town.

Looking for something different

As a location,Cheltenham race course is suited for visiting Cheltenham of course and possibly surrounding area Gloucester if wished. This review is about the site and its immediate offerings. If looking for the usual CC amenties and spec then this site is not for you. We stayed for 2 nights on the way to another place. Essentially pitches are on a car park, however, we managed to book and stay on a grass pitch for one of our nights and would have preferred this option for both and would opt for this if visiting again, which actually we probably won't.The strict closure of the grass area meant we had to move to the "car park". The facilities are quirky, clean and functional. The views acrossrace course are superb and this together with good weather, the running of the steam train and easy bus ride directly from the race course to Cheltenham made our  time here worthwhile. We would not want to stay here in high season nor when the race days are open to public, but realise this maybe exactly what others are looking to do. We met the temporary wardens and they were pleasant having stepped in to assist while the normal ones took up their new jobs else where.Glad to have visited but we shall not be returning unless at a loose end for a couple of days.

OK for the Racecourse

Stayed here for 3 nights for the Brass Band weekend. Very short on Hard Standings with awning and not many with awnings on grass. Mainly tarmac pitches. Ideal for the race course, but it is very expensive for drinks in the course. A good walk away from the town shops. Not the usual Club Site venue.

2nd visit

This was our second visit to Cheltenham Racecourse CC Site, on both occasions to support my son and his band at the National Brass Band Finals held at he Centaur Centre on the racecourse. Perfect site for the weekend with little more than 200 yds to walk to the venue.  Wardens Nick and Karen helpfully waited for our arrival which had been delayed due to traffic hold ups. For children we would recommend the Pittville Park (10 minutes walk) which has an amazing array of activities and obstacles to challenge children of all ages and abilities. The 'icing on the cake' came when our Band was awarded 2nd Prize in the top section of the contest!
