Why stay here ...

A popular caravan site in Warwickshire, 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.

Back Again

Can't believe why there are so many negatives against the lady warden, I found her very friendly and extremely helpful as was her husband. Why are members so upset at being told off when arriving at 12.30 when arrival time is clearly stated as not before 13.00? The wardens should do as the previous wardens did, close and lock the gate only opening at 1.00 pm, no argument. I also agree with the wardens that there is a 'no visitors on site' (a Club Rule during Covid) why should we all be put at risk. We use this site frequently, it has a lovely walk all around the racetrack, also an amazing place to be on a race day. Easy walk into town and the castle is a must. Sainsbury's just across the track too, handy. Extremely helpful and friendly wardens we loved our visit, thank you.

Motorhome perfection

Brilliant site to stay with Motorhome. Walk across racetrack and you are in Warwick, a lovely town with individual shops, pubs and restaurants. Do try Tasca Dali Spanish restaurant- 35.00 for five courses which just appear and are always great! Bus connections are excellent. Leamington Spa - buses every 10 mins and Stratford Upon Avon not far though bus journey goes round the houses! Castle within walking distance though pre-booking essential. Site facilities dated but clean. Racecourse not spending money on updating them? Not sure why all 3 urinals closed? One could have remained in use ? Staff welcoming and friendly.

Enjoyable stay

Spent a very pleasant 5 night stay at this site to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Site is very well maintained and tidy. Some of the pitches are small but more than adequate. The facilities are very clean and tidy however I would have given a 5 star but they need a general paint and update. The wardens do a great job and both of them were at all times pleasant, helpful and very welcoming. We never at any time encountered any of the traits mentioned by a previous reviewer, far from it both wardens were professional and friendly. Both were very knowledgeable about the local area and forthcoming with help with advice. They have taken Covid regulations seriously and yes this has impacted on the number of facilities available but this is unfortunately outside their control and they manage it well. Thanks to them for taking steps to help keep us all safe. This was our third time at this site and every time we have really enjoyed our stay. Ten minutes walk to Warwick which has numerous restaurants and pubs and shops. There is a bus depot with a good selection of bus routes. Warwick castle is on the doorstop too. Top site and we will return especially if there is a race day as the site has first rate view point of the track.

Nice site

This is a great site for proximity to Warwick, just a few minutes walk away, and Stratford, just 8 miles away. Excellent for dogs, the adjacent open grassy area is fantastic for giving them a good run. We usually use the site as a stopover, we have a son living in south Oxfordshire, and it's a halfway house. Pitches are ok. Toilet facilities are small but adequate for the size of the site, except at the moment there is no teeth cleaning allowed which is a bit over the top, even in the present circumstances. We have stayed on 11 different CC sites since lockdown was eased and this is the first time we've come across this. At the moment there is an unwelcoming, brusque and rather aggressive female warden (the male warden is lovely) who speaks to you as if you were 8 yrs old. We're in our mid 70's and don't appreciate this. Needs to learn some people skills I think! It's not what you say, it's the way that you say it!! We have been CC members for many years, and 99% of wardens are lovely, helpful/friendly/welcoming, just occasionally you come across a "jobsworth" pity.
