Why stay here ...

The Warwick Racecourse Club Site is set on a grass and tarmac enclosure within the grounds of the racecourse itself and is a mere 15 minute walk from the town centre of Warwick. Conveniently located a mile away from the M40 motorway, the caravan park gives you easy access to a large variety of fun activities, from lovely walks and a 9-hole golf course to a driving range with an area for flying model aircraft and gliders. You can also enjoy a lovely walk along the Grand Union Canal at picturesque Hatton Locks and perhaps stop for refreshments at the Hatton Lock Café.

Adjacent to the Warwick Racecourse Club Site you will find the historic Hill Close Victorian Gardens (admittance charge), which act as a gateway to the town centre. The award-winning Warwick Castle is also within easy reach of the caravan site and is a must-see as it's reputed to be the finest medieval castle in England. Another place in the area that is well worth the visit is pretty Stratford-upon-Avon - here you can walk the superb Heritage Trail, take the fascinating Shakespeare Story Tour Bus and visit the world famous theatre. You might also like to visit Birmingham or Leamington Spa, accessible by train, which offer a great mix of both high street and boutique shops.

Unusual location. Good site

Stayed for 3 nights last week visting the area on foot and by public transport. Site is easy to find and access. Mixture of grass, hardstanding and tarmac (alongside the racetrack). The grass pitches were rather close together which made the site seemed cramped We had pitch 53 (tarmac) on which we were required to park our motorhome lengthways parallel to the track trails. Great Location. Site showers are located behind the office. Male & female only have 3 showers in each and although very clean could do with an upgrade. Also there is a covered dishwashing area, laundry, chemical and grey water disposal (for caravan roller containers). Motorhome disposal point located opposite our pitch - on way out.. Convenience store 5 mins walk from site. Bus Station 6 mins walk with links to Royal Leamington Spa and Kenilworth, both of which we visited. Also Coventry and Stratford on Avon. Beautiful town with many interesting old buildings and of course Warwick Castle - not to be missed - members get a 45% entry discount.There is a market in Warwick every Saturday. The Tilted Wig in the Market Square does superb value for money smoked salmon sandwiches! Following on from a recent post, there are a lot of dogs but they are always on a lead on site and the owners walk them along the public footpath between the track rails and the site fence, often much to our amusement!

Avoid race days if you aren't interested in the racing

We just spent 20 nights here on family business. Unfortunately we had to suffer 3 race days. To be fair, the wardens are excellent and clean up after the races very quickly and efficiently. Most race days it is just a minor inconvenience having to be off site for a while, but when they were watering the course you sometimes had to divert 1/4 mile along a rough stony track and over a series of car park speed humps to enter or leave the site as the normal exit was blocked by the water feed. Ladies Night was particularly awful. We had to leave the site by 12 and we couldn't return until after the last race which was at 8.30. When we tried to get back on just after 9pm we were confronted by rude race stewards, one of whom didn't know where the site was and one who told us the site didn't let anyone on after 8. Having finally defeated these obstacles, we were treated to a very loud and incompetent Robbie Williams tribute band, followed by thumping disco noises which kept us awake until 11.30pm. So, if the racing isn't what you are going for, try to avoid race days, you will be treated like a second class citizen.

Great 3 Night Stay

Just got back from a 3 night stay at this site, we picked a hardstanding pitch for our first time out with a caravan. We were sited opposite the main grandstand on slightly sloping tarmac. After setting up we enjoyed a walk around the common land surrounding the site, our dog also enjoyed the freedom to run and meet other dogs. Well situated for a walk into Warwick town itself with supermarkets and shops near-by. On Saturday we drove to Hatton Locks and had a great walk along the tow path. Sunday was spent exploring Warwick and taking a boat out on the Avon, which gave us a great view of Warwick Castle. The facilities on site were excellent, with warm, clean showers, careful of the hot water in the basins though, as the sign says it's very hot! There were several dogs on site, all were friendly and their owners responsible enough to pick up after them. Look forward to visiting again soon.

To many dogs

Race course site is very pleasant and unusual setting. Facilities are ready for a upgrade although very clean. Very expensive for staying on a car park. As usual for Caravan & Motorhome sites - overrun with dogs so if you don’t like dogs stay away although there are no dog free sites in the club provided.

Always so good

So much to be impressed about - particularly during my one night stay on Saturday 17th March - wardens worked very hard to move my grass booking to a hardstanding as due to awful weather no grass pitches available and more people booked than there was space to accommodate. Clean and warm facilities and friendly welcome which was much appreciated after a 31/2 hour drive in blizzard conditions, excellent dog walking from the site, shopping, restaurants etc on the doorstep and decent roads immediately on hand for onward journey. Thank you to the wardens - it must have been a really trying time for you - but you certainly didn't let it show.
