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.

Peaceful, easy access to beach

Wardens excellent, nothing too much trouble. Even though did not purchase ticket for race night, did feel the exciting atmosphere Dogs loved the site - easy walk to a quiet beach. Will visit again, may not be pretty but it is functional 1 given for family as there is no option for n/a and I am not looking at the family accessibility

Bland and uninspiring

A warm welcome from the wardens and very helpful. We found the pitches close together and the site very uninspiring - not a reflection of other club sites we’ve stayed on. There was very little greenery or trees. The facilities were excellent! If you go for the racing or other event this site is ideal but it wasn’t for us. If we visit Yarmouth again we will choose another site & travel in. If you have dogs you will need to get off the site before you could comfortably allow your dog to toilet - everywhere was in front of/behind someone’s pitch - not ideal. The beach is over a road bridge & (for me) a comfortable 10 min walk. Sand dunes right off the road then leading to a lovely, almost empty beach. Just outside the site is a bus stop - buses every 30 mins while we were there. Overall great facilities as usual, wardens lovely marred (IMO) by a characterless vista. Sorry but I just say it as it is.

Great find

First we would like to thank the Wardens for a fabulous welcome after a long drive from Cumbria, and thank you to the fill in Wardens covering leave. This is the best site for the welcome and helpfulness, wish all club Wardens were like these guys, maybe the club should get these guys to train the rest!!!! A leaf out of their books would go a long way. Some people said the site was not exciting, but what you have to remember is this is a Racecourse, the location is great, if you have a bus pass you are in luck(we are out of luck as we are not old enough). But it is great for cycling into Yarmouth and Caister, great cycling tracks. Usual very clean facilities. There is a chip van on Saturdays/Wednesday, you will have to make your own mind up on this one. Well worth a visit, hope to return one day. Only one comment, which happens a lot now, and totally bugs us, were on pitch 89 next to the bins etc, campers remember do not walk through someones pitch that they have paid for, it's very rude and annoying, would you walk through your neighbours garden at home!! It was unfortunate that we forgot our wind brake and that would stopped the lazy people.

Brilliant site, immaculately clean, first rate wardens

Stayed for five days end of May it was a last minute decision to go and chose the site based on reviews and could not have been more pleased. The site is well positioned for the town and while you can walk to the beach it is not near the main part of Yarmouth more isolated dunes type of area. There are too few sites with the space and tidy facilities offered here and to say the toilet and showers are clean is a massive understatement they are just about clinical!! The wardens are in a class of their own I have never encountered more friendly, welcoming and helpful people anywhere. I had a small problem with my van and even though they were off duty they went way beyond what they could have been expected to do to help me Yarmouth isn’t my favourite place but due to the site I will go back
