Why stay here ...

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Site is located in an excellent position next to the racecourse should you fancy a flutter and the famous 18-hole golf course offers hours of leisurely pleasure. The caravan site is a mere 300 yards from the seafront, with a bus stop just outside the site entrance making it perfect for sunbathing in summer and long relaxing strolls. Also within the lively holiday resort of Yarmouth, visitors have access to a self-contained six-acre pleasure beach complete with countless traditional seaside attractions to delight both young and old.

With a bus stop just outside the site entrance there are many attractions within easy reach of Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Site including the Yarmouth Time and Tide Museum, the Sea Life centre and Thirgby Hall Wildlife Gardens, which houses an interesting range of big cats, crocodiles and other reptiles. Moving inland from the caravan site you will discover the Broads, popular for romantic boat cruises and the rolling unspoilt beauty of Britain's newest National Park. Great places to visit during a day trip to the Broads include the National Trust site, Horsey Windpump and nearby coastal town of Sea Palling, which boasts a sandy Blue Flag beach.

Eddie & Judy the site wardens are a credit to the Caravan Club

This was our first visit to the site on the race course at Great Yarmouth. After driving for 3 hours, we switched off the motorhome engine to check in & unfortunately the battery had not been charging so our vechile would not re-start.  Eddie was immediately on hand with a battery charger pack & got us re-started.  He even followed up with a map showing us how to get to the nearest Halfords so we could replace the battery. Such a genuinely friendly chap, he was only to pleased to help us out. Once we were settled we checked in with Judy for some hints & tips to make the most of the area, what a wonderful lady, she truely enjoyed her role with the caravan club and her enthusiasm to help just radiated through.  This couple are an absolute credit to the Caravan Club, we wish them well on their next placement & certainly hope to meet them again soon - absolute gems!

Excellent

This site is very well looked after by the really friendly wardens. The toilets are brand new and fantastic. The site itself is open and looks as if it could get a bit soggy in wet weather, but that is a minor issue as it's sandy and the water will drain away easily. Not much to keep kids amused but the bus into Gt Yarmouth, with all its wonders, stops only 2 minutes walk from the site gates. Dog owners like us are spoilt. Out of the site to the left and down 300 yds to a fantastic beach. A bit pebbly but still a great space for the dog to run. Being there during a raceday would be fantastic as you're pitched right next to the course. We'll be back for a raceday sometime next year.

Norfolk Gold

A really nice site with, as with most C/C sites, helpful & friendly wardens The beach is a doggy type persons delight. Miles & miles of sand to walk on in absolute peace. Marvellous. Being a 10-15 min walk into Great Yarmouth is also nice. All in all a good place to relax & unwind

Warm welcome

We arrived without a booking just after 5pm last Monday and were greeted warmly by the warden.  She was very friendly and genuinely happy to see us.  The site is very well kept with immaculate facilities.  On this occasion we stayed just one night, but I'm sure we will be back.
