Stopover

This site was disappointing overall. We are a small family with a dog. Local knowledge of places to eat that were dog friendly was poor. We located a very good one at https://new.whiteharthoteluttoxeter.co.uk/. The site is not your typical Club site and definitely not up to the standard you would expect. Whilst the toilets and showers were clean they urgently need updating. The showers themselves are on the smaller side which might not suit everyone. As we were just stopping over for one night on a longer trip up north it was fine but if we had booked in for longer I would have been very disappointed. Obviously very convenient for the races.

warden let the site down

i was very disappointed at the way the warden spoke to me like I was something he trod in, the gate was closed at midday I drove through and left the gate open as I was going straight back out, he came marching over to me pointing his finger saying the gates closed, go through it CLOSE it. I was under the impression that the gate was only closed on race days 2 hours before racing, this was not on a race day. Apart from that the site is lovely and we enjoy going to see the races, I will be hesitant to book there again which is a shame because we have never had a problem with the previous wardens and we are not too far away.

Lovely relaxing stay

Stayed for one night. The couple who run the site were lovely and helpful. We had booked a pitch with awning and had a pick of a few on arrival. Plenty of room between pitches. Very peaceful and relaxing. Highly recommend and will definitely be back soon. Thank you

We like it but read the small print

We had a weekend here, meeting friends. The site is quirky in that it is not owned by the club and is very much part of the race course. Don't expect club gravel, club toilets etc. If you are used to C and CC sites this will seem normal. Facilities are dated but immaculate. There can be some distance from taps etc unlike club owned sites. The race course is busy with money making events so expect it to be busy some of the time. Access is easy. The best part of the site are the wardens who are cheerful, helpful and hard working. There are just the 2 so don't expect to be able to access office etc at all times. This is a well run welcoming site with lots of interesting features.
