Good place to stay

Can I start by saying I am mystified by the comments about the wardens , stayed here a couple of times this year the wardens were welcoming and very helpful . The toilet blocks are clean and are cleaned as in all CMC sites to a high standard. The showers are a little dated , but certainly clean. The location is peaceful with a Waitrose supermarket within 15 mins walk. For those that like to exercise the race course makes a great jogging route and there is plenty to do in the locality. We have not tried visiting on a race day , but given the location of the site and its proximity to the course I would imagine it’s quite an occasion.

What problem

We have been here a few times now and did read some reviews before we went. I don't understand why people are so upset. The warden's were great and very helpful. This is an affiliated site not directly owned by the club. It is only dirty if people that use the facilities make them so. The blocks were cleaned on a daily basis so I don't see the issue. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back without question. I don't see why the warden's should be made a scapegoat just because they have changed at the end of the day they are doing a job and a very good one too.

Warden spoiled our stay

Just spent the weekend at Uttoxeter Racecourse site to find the new warden this year to be very obnoxious. The wardens last year were very welcoming but this year not so. As a keen aerial photographer (I use state of the art drone equipment had the correct training and insurance along with being an model aircraft instructor) last year I got some lovely footage of the site that we have been visiting for years as a hub to take our two children to Alton Towers (posted on the Caravan Club Facebook and liked by an admin). I sent this footage to the then wardens who loved the fact that this footage promoted this site and showed how well they kept the site. This year the warden went out of his way to make sure I could not do the same again and came back to me almost every time I came out of my caravan to tell me off as if I was a school child (I’m 41). The toilets were a disgrace to the Caravan Club the floor was covered in hair (the not head variety) and when my wife and daughter went to have a shower they discovered that the shower doors could be unlocked from the outside. We have been club members for 10 years and have never experienced this “service” before needless to say we will never stop at the Uttoxeter site again. Sorry for the rant and this does not reflect the excellent standard of Caravan Club sites we have stopped at across the UK in the past but maybe the the Wardens in charge? But I feel this needed to be said as it seemed apparent by the lack of caravans/motorhomes on site that rather than come over with the attitude he did continuously he never once asked my family or I how our stay was. We left with my 10 year old in tears wondering what we had done so wrong.

First race weekend

Easy to get to site which is close to a wide range of eateries, pubs and shops within walking distance. It was quiet after pubs shut, no light pollution and facilities were clean and well kept. Copious amounts of free hot water in the showers, which were a fair size and had good power. Wardens, Emma and John, were friendly, cheerful and very helpful....knowledgeable about the site and had good relations with other patrons as they knew them by name and had plenty of banter!! Having a few winners on the Sunday race day topped it all off!
