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.

Great location and easy to get to

Stopped over for an afternoon and night on my way south. Very warm greeting from the staff and a good explanation of the facility. I chose a pitch next to the race course on the hard standing. Needed ramps to get level, but plenty of room. Although people walk round the track just the other side of a waist high fence, had no troubles and if you like people watching, fantastic! Walk into the shops in town is not very long, but is uphill. Wide selection of shops and places to eat. As your in the centre of the race track, plenty of room for exercise if you so wish. Would recommend and will be returning again on my travels

A racing certainty!

We decided to visit Warwick after previously living there for 30 years. We had used the magnificent facility which is called St Mary's Lands, within which are Lammas Fields Common, a 9 hole golf course, a rugby pitch, caravan park all encircled by the racecourse many times over the years but never as a caravanner. What a great central position, for dog walking (miles and miles of walks), for visiting the town with all is pubs or cafés and antique shops or for visiting the castle. Yes of course there are a few drawbacks with the site but there are always comprises with any site you visit. We found the facilities acceptable and yes the site was full and busy, but wherever we go we always adjust our use of the facilities to suit. The site is what it is and it's very unlikely that any more land will come available. We'll done the club!

Close to Town, ideal Stop Over, very friendly Wardens / Staff

Clean however pretty seasoned facilities could do with a make up. Only one sink to wash dishes and, being right next to the grey water disposal drain and the chemical toilet disposal is not necessarily optimal but could be easily improved. Still, we will call in again. P.S. potty that some of the dog owners let they’re dog pie against the water tap pipe’s and the support pole at the reception, this is however is not Warwick specific, it happens on other sites as well, we often wish that the pet owners which obey the rules would remind their follow pet owners to be considered.

Substandard site but handy for the town

We have stayed at Warwick site many times due to its proximity to the town and always find the wardens very pleasant. It is a very basic site with many uneven pitches and hardstandings next to the race course are just on a tarmac car park with EHU. The few hardstanding pitches on the site itself are ok. Many of the grass pitches are are uneven and do get waterlogged in bad weather. Toilets and showers are barely adequate (there were queues for ladies & gents every day while we were there). There is also only one dishwashing sink. The advantage to this site is that it is only a few minutes walk to the town which has many small shops and plenty of coffee shops & eateries. It is only a short drive (or a bus trip) to the towns of Stratford, Kenilworth, Leamington etc. Its a good site for short stays as long as you don't expect the usual high standards of most CMC sites.
