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 metres 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.

**Members are welcome on site during race days, however we are unable to accept arrivals on a race day. Dogs are also welcome on race days but we ask that you please keep them on a lead. Visit the Great Yarmouth Racecourse website for the most up to date information**

Very helpful and friendly

I didn't comment on the families section because I was there on my own. For me the site was very good - easy to pitch and the facilities were really clean and the current Covid wristband system of up to 6 on the hooks worked well - it was never full when I went in (I stayed in early September 2020) apart from the dishwashing area (as only one sink was in use) but if you avoided the morning there was often no one about. But the showers and loos were well spaced out and there was I thought there was plenty of hand sanitiser (though if I had to be picky the one near the waste disposal was hard to operate)... The wardens were delightful, hard working and friendly and kindly lent me a water container when I realised I had forgotten mine - even going to the trouble of adding some Milton to it when they gave it to me so I could ensure it was clean. There was one night (I think Saturday) when there was some noise from I presume the greyhound track - and obviously if you were there on horse racing days it would be lively, but most of the time it was very quiet and peaceful with lovely walks for the dog down to the dunes if you wanted. It was a good base for touring around and I would definitely go again. I'd love to be there on a Race day just to see what it would be like! I wasn't fussed about the lack of grass/sandiness though I can see what others have said about the unevenness though luckily I found a pitch which I was very happy with...

Needs updating

Having stayed at the site for the past few years I was very disappointed with the site this year, as others have said pitches are very bare hardly any grass no markings, and uneven. The site needs money spent on it. The site is located just outside the town center which us easily accessible by walking along the front a pleasant walk, or the local bus stops just outside, or the little train runs along the sea front regularly. A fish and chip van visits the site on Wednesday and Saturday. I have been to several club sites since lockdown eased, and this site didn't have the same procedures in place, the band system for toilets was ok and worked well but there was a lack of sanitizers at bins, and water points. Will probably give this site a miss for next year to hopefully improve.

A good site but wheres the grass!

Stayed here for 7 nights in August. Great location and site wardens we're lovely. 10 minute walk to the dunes and beach for the dog and 30 minutes into town. There is a bus stop almost outside the site which is £2 each way. A taxi is £8 which I thought was expensive but worth it if there are 4 of you. The site had a procedure in place for Covid which only allowed 6 people in the toilet/shower block at a time. However a number of people abused this and still went in even though it was at maximum capacity. There was a distinct lack of hand gel which I would like to have seen at the water points etc... The only one I saw was just outside the men's toilets. It was race day when we were there which was good but quiet because no public were allowed. Because of Covid you had to be off site before 10am and not allowed back on until after 8:30 PM. The racing didn't start until 3pm! and finished at 7:30pm... Worth knowing if you are there on race day... We stayed on site and just chilled. The site is meant to be grass pitches but there was a distinct lack of grass! The ground was a dusty sandy mix with only about 20% grass cover.... It was also uneven and badly uneven in some places... Pick your pitch wisely... Hopefully CAMC will give it some TLC this autumn/winter. 4/5 due to location and staff

Needs a bit of TLC

We have always loved this site and come here regularly, its a great run from our home. The beach is literally a five minute walk, which is very dog friendly. The relief wardens that were there when we were on site are extremely nice. Very friendly and helpful, really liked them. The facilities are always so clean and well looked after and a few little touches around the site which make you smile. Just one criticism the actual pitches, grassed areas could really do with some TLC. I think its probably many years since they have been looked at and the pitches have become quite uneven now and there are some quite big ruts in the drive ways. I know the wardens do their best to take care of it all and move pitches around to try and keep them as best they can, but I think they are fighting a losing battle, it really does need a good overhaul now. But, saying that, it wont put us off going. We were gutted they are fully booked for the bank holiday.
