Close to Town

Uttoxeter Racecourse Club Campsite
We stayed here for a total of 8 nights in August attending a nearby event. Access to the site is straight-forward but note through Gate 3 - the last 100 metres or so is single track. Pitches are all fairly level although the hardstandings look as though they need some attention. You are given a key to the (somewhat dated) toilets and the main gate which is locked at night, although there is no other barrier to the site during the day (anyone can drive in!). An easy 10 minute walk to the town cutting across the railway station bridge which takes you to shops, pubs and restaurants. Unfortunately our stay was marred somewhat by other regular site users which has certainly put us off returning. Fortunately at night you could hear a pin drop, and suprisingly no noise at all from the trains apart from the odd toot during the day. The wardens friendly at check-in, but didn't see them around the site at any point at all which we found unusual for a CAMC site.

Not as good value as it used to be

Uttoxeter Racecourse Club Campsite
We live near and the site is very convenient for a short stay. It is always clean but lately the hardstanding pitches have been covered in weeds. The facilities are very basic which is why we cannot understand the price increase. We have stayed on 5 star French sites offering serviced pitches for less! The wardens have always been friendly and accommodating but I do think it's time the caravan club re - evaluate charges.

Disappointing Visit

Uttoxeter Racecourse Club Campsite
Our first visit this year was certainly underwhelming. First impressions were concerning the unkempt look with the internal hedges needing attention and worst of all the hard standing pitches were really badly covered in weeds. Our pitch had left over litter embedded in the gravel as well. The facilities were clean and looked after but the wardens were conspicuous by their absence. It is usual on club sites to see them out and about looking around the site but this time no. We have always enjoyed coming to Uttoxeter for race meetings in the past but having experienced two nights this time we decided to cancel all our other bookings. We expected better and with site fees on the increase we would rather give our support to sites that actually appreciate visitors.

Long stop over

Uttoxeter Racecourse Club Campsite
Booked the site in the darkness of winter with the view of a stop over on the way to north Wales and not reading the small print at the time found it was a race meeting for the queen’s platinum weekend, with no admission on the day I had booked, I would of thought the system would of red flagged that date so remember to do your homework. Back to the site review make sure to enter through the third gate down Wood Lane, with all the race traffic you can lose your nerve when the track starts to get narrow and turn it to the stables turn which many did. I would suggest not to turn up before 1pm waiting space is at a premium and all you do is block the road up. Booking in was fine the wife said it was very friendly and helpful and remember the key for the showers and toilet which is under lock and key 24/7. The showers and toilet block reminded me of 70’s school toilets. We managed to find a pitch up against the race course rails but remember the track is watered with a certificated system so your car, van, awning and anything in its path will get wet. I would recommend putting large blocks under your legs the horses like good to soft ground but the caravan doesn’t. With the town a 15 min walk away by gate 2 and 20 min by the caravan site entrance its not bad and with Waitrose and Witherspoon on the way back for supplies it’s well situated, like most towns of the modern era it full estate agent’s and charity shops, but it’s worth a look. Any off to North Wales now hope that review helped
