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.

Great site, very convenient for Cheltenham Town Centre

This site was ideal for our short stay to visit the Cheltenham Town Hall for a concert. Only a pleasant 20 minute walk into Cheltenham with regular bus service just outside the site. The site is actually in the Cheltenham Racecourse facility and all the pitches are on a tarmac car park that gentle slop towards to the race track. Great views of Cleeve Hill and it is very quiet and peaceful. While the showers and loos are a bit dated they are clean and efficient. Washing up and laundry areas if needed are fine too. Good prices if you don't need EHU. Will definitely stay here again if going to Cheltenham for any reason.

Early wake up call

We where very disappointed to be woken up by a knock on our van at 7.25 on Sunday morning by the Warden looking for payment, despite being booked in & the office was not due to open until 9. Really not impressed by the attitude & lack of sincerity of apology.

Friendly stopover

We have just had our second visit to Cheltenham and enjoyed it as much as our first. The wardens are always happy, willing to help and keep the place spotless. It has great views over the racecourse and has easy access to the park and ride into Cheltenham. The town has great restaurants and pubs along with good shops and other attractions. Well worth a little visit.

Not your usual site

We have stayed here a few times and whilst its not your usual site its an excellent base for visiting Cheltenham and riding the GWSR, You can easily walk or catch the bus from the Park & Ride into Cheltenham, and the GWSR station is a short walk away, as is a shop if you need the basics. Regarding the comment being unwelcoming for families it's not a site for young children as there is no play area and its an open site with few clearly defined pitches. So maybe designating it an adult only site is a good idea. The facilities are good, but leveling blocks are essential.
