Excellent First Club Site Experience

We made our first ever Club site stay at Uttoxeter as we were attending the Acoustic Festival of Britain, which was taking place on the Racecourse. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Sal and Steve, we were made to feel very welcome. The site is level and the pitches are spacious and well-maintained, and although it was full over the weekend we were there, we never felt crowded. The toilet and shower facilities belong to the Racecourse and are, admittedly, a bit dated, but are kept absolutely spotless by the wardens. For a first experience this was excellent, and we told Sal and Steve as we left that they, and their site, were a credit to the club. We're now looking forward to two more Club site stays already booked for later this year.

Very well run site

Enjoyed stay at this site. Pitches are well kept and grass is in very good condition. Pitches are flat and well spaced. Staff are excellent, very friendly and helpful. On checkin warden provided helpful information such as how to walk into Uttoxeter. Toilet block gets much criticism from some reviews but we found them fine, very clean. Seemed strange at first to hear Radio 2 in the toilet block from the speakers. Site is quiet. Caught train into Derby, Uttoxeter station is close to site but basic so you need to buy tickets on train.

Great for Race Days

We stopped at this site for a couple of nights recently, in fairness because we couldn't get a pitch at another preferred site. We had never stopped here before and enjoy visiting all of the sites to see which we like for a longer stay. I read many good and indifferent views before arriving and was unsure of what to expect. Initially the site is very much a club run, but not owned site. It reminded me of what the Club site at Durham was like before the Club bought it from the local Council. The facilities are old and showers small but always clean, and the grass areas and small hedges tidy. We managed to get Wi-fi on our pitch and good TV signal. The site road is very dusty and soon makes it way into the unit and the service points are all mostly placed around toilet block. The racecourse was gearing up for a race meeting when we were there so there was some noise from generators and fridge units but not annoyingly so. The site started to fill up when we were departing, with some arriving at 10:50? We will definitely return again for a short stay but I can't see the facilities improving any time soon. Wardens are Great though.

Brilliant wardens, fabulous weekend.

We have just spent the weekend and part of the week at Uttoxexter and it was a great experience. The wardens Sal and Steve are amazing people with time for everyone, Sal is making the site her own with some lovely quirky touches. Yes the toilet block is dated but its spotless and comfortable. The racing at the weekend was great fun with a good atmosphere. Madness played afterwards and they were fantastic. Try some of the other events you won't be disappointed. We ate at the Thai restaurant Friday night the food was superb, service great and the ambiance lovely they deserve to be far busier. We are booked to go to the site again already.

Excellent, clean site, lovely wardens

We stayed here over Easter weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The site is in a great location, in easy walking distance of Uttoxeter town centre and also a retail park where there is a cinema and bowling alley. The wardens were very welcoming and helpful, and the site is very clean and tidy, with everything you need including a small range of essential groceries for sale, dvds and books to borrow in the little reception hut. There is no kids play area but plenty of space to place games/run around. Sally was lovely and even provided some colouring sheets for our daughter and her friend. The racecourse provides a nice walk (or run), very quiet and peaceful. Alton Towers is only around 9 miles from here so very convenient. We will hopefully go back again and schedule our visit for a race day!
