Convenient for town centre with lovely staff

Booked as an overnight stay on our way up to York. We found the location very good, with easy access for our tag axle Motorhome. The staff were very welcoming and we had a good pitch. We stayed on a non race weekend, so it was really quite. A 10 minute walk into town with a good array of shops. Only niggle was the ladies toilet/showers seemed to have a bit of an odour and the gents shower was cold when my partner used them in the late evening. Overall a good, pleasant stay.

Lovely site

This is one of my favourite sites as we go horse racing a lot, but this year has to be the best year attending the site due to the wardens Sally and Steve, we have been members for some years now and met some lovely friendly wardens along the way, but Sally and Steve seem to go that extra mile to make you welcome, they are so pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, they have done an amazing job to keep the site lovely, a credit to you both, the town centre is only a ten min walk which is very nice well worth a visit.

Pleasant site

Stayed one night on way to Scotland. First time on a racecourse site. Facilities a bit dated but clean. Fortunately it was a lovely sunny day as there is little shelter on the site. Warden very friendly but I did get moaned at for being a foot from the marker post.

Good site and great staff

We visit this site quite often usually for race meetings or if we just fancy a quick break when nice weather arrives. The site is easy to get to, well placed with a short walk to town, supermarkets, restaurants and even a cinema. Not being owned by the club the facilities are not the usual standard but are clean and warm. The site has great staff and always make you welcome. This year the site has been brightened up with innovative, quirky art work that brings a smile to our faces and has given us some ideas. The site is also priced cheaper than some CL sites so give it a try, you will enjoy it.

pleasant stay at Uttoxeter

Just returned from a very pleasant 3 night stay. We deliberately chose to stay when there was a race meeting (but no evening events). We are not really interested in racing (except via Dick Francis novels) but just fancied the experience of seeing a racecourse in action. You can obtain different tickets for going into the various stands/enclosures on race day from the site reception. But you can see a lot of what is going on from the site itself as you are pitched i the middle of the track - which is what we did. From the site you can hear the announcements etc so you know what is going on. We did find it really interesting - seeing build up, the racing, and the departure of outside broadcast and huge TV screen lorries. Site not quiet on race days - obviously, but was on other days. Uttoxeter itself is quite interesting with a good little museum - Redfern's Cottage - outlining history of the town and its industries, including JCB. Do not go expecting a normal cloned Club site. Facilities adequate, & very clean - but racecourse (who own the site) could do with putting a bit of investment into the site. Roadways on the site have a few potholes - but absolutely no worse than approaches to many CLs. Beware 2 levels of electricity - 10 & 16 amp, dependent on pitch. Wardens helpful & friendly. We would visit again if in that area.
