Some pitches are sheltered by conifer belts, some enclosed within the setting of the racecourse paddock and some line the rails overlooking the Racecourse and Golf course. The park offers both relaxing and energetic holiday attractions for the whole family.

Set in comfortable and picturesque surroundings, Fakenham Racecourse Club site has excellent facilities and the attractive market town of Fakenham is a conveniently short distance away, giving easy access to the local shops and market and auction held every Thursday. There is a frequent bus service from the town to various destinations including the nearby seaside resort of Wells-next-the-Sea.

not a genuine campsite just a business making money as one!!

superior race course staff, not a real campsite, shooting in the distance all day, no real security, if you value your club members let them know. If you return you will be treated as familiarity breeds contempt at a guess they prefer passing trade. toilets and showers are good. You are allocated a parking place when there are loads of space to choose, Staff run the show as if its their own property If you have a dog be aware where they put you as we were put near someone who threatened our dog before even meeting her. we told the staff but they were not interested. Otherwise it is a good retreat for short stay on your first visit to that area. religious stickers if they are on your van to protect your family take them off

Angry birds!

We couldn’t stay here again, sadly, as we were awakened at the crack of dawn by the sound of crows in the trees above. And i’m Not just talking about one or two birds. They carried on non-stop through the entire day until sunset. Plus the racecourse ground staff were watering the track, using a constantly clunking agricultural sprinkler all day long. Peaceful? No way.

Fakenham

Spent 6 nights here in mid August, location is good, however facilities are not up to Caravan Club standards, whilst we were there a number of people asked for refunds as the toilet facilities were dirty. I cannot confirm to as we use our own. Over all staff were helpful but it’s facilities need up dating.

Another pleasant stay

We spent four nights at this site last week; we try and get up to Fakenham Racecourse at least twice a year as it is so convenient as a base for visiting the coast and other local market towns. The facilities are clean, the pitches of a good size and the staff always very helpful.We have been visiting this site for at least 10 years and always enjoyed it. The site is primarily a racecourse and allowances must be made for this fact. However the site itself is very pleasant and is within easy walking distance of Fakenham itself. There is a golf club by the racecourse with a clubhouse, which is open to caravanners and serves meals and a selection of beers etc. There are also plenty of pubs/restaurants in the local area.

Big Disappointment

We only booked this site at the last minute, so we were limited to what camps were available for the Easter weekend, so we ended up with fakenham. We booked our pitch online, and after our booking had been placed and our money taken, we then received an email to state that we had to be off the pitch by 9 on Monday due to a race taking place. Next, we then received another message to say that due to heavy rain, our chosen pitch was flooded and for us to choose an alternative option to either another grass pitch or hard standing. Obviously due to the weather we chose the latter. After arriving later than usual to the site, we were greeted by a gentleman who showed us to our pitch - next to the Bet Fred shed, and on a slope, Well, what a disaster, as it was difficult to get the caravan level. All other caravans near us were all over the place, no proper pitches. The facilities, i.e., waste and water and chemical point are all over the place and not near one another at all. The toilet block was adequate but could certainly do with updating and visiting at night was creepy as the site does not have lights at night. As previously said, site out of the way and every day we ventured out, it was over an hour away each way. Very disappointed and would most certainly not recommend or visit again.
