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.

Enjoy canal and river walks along the Saltisford Arm of the Grand Union Canal. The circular route of the racecourse on the common land is an easy walk (1.25-1.5 miles) or try the walk to Hatton Locks (3.8 miles).

Buses outside site Only downside the shower block is too small for the site when full but apart from that excellent over site.

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.

Good site for walks and city visit

Stayed for five nights in caravan. We were located in the copse in the middle of the site - excellent - clean - plenty of grass - quiet. Wardens very helpful and the facilites were A1. I am not so sure that I would want to stay alongside the periphery of the racetrack. This would be on hardstanding - gave me the impression of being in a parking lot with a line up of motorhomes along the periphery of the race course. The site is centrally located in the middle of the racecourse and surrounded by it. The racecourse is on the periphery of Warwick.It has a lot of open accessible land in the centre of the course. The city is reachable easily by walking and the Castle, River, Town, Large Park and Grand Union Canal are all within walkable distance. Bus station close by with services to most of the surrounding region. A very nice location and dog owners have plently of space in which to walk their dogs. I would definately recomend the site for a visit to the area - easy access to Warwick and surrounding areas. Plenty to see and do.

The staff are BRILLIANT!!

Well all I can say is that although I barely used the physical facilities except for water and EHU my experience with the staff was absolutely brilliant! Had a bit of a major crisis when staying there.. I lost the keys to my MH! Well I was in a bit of a panic and approached the staff for assistance... (im ashamed to say that I never noted down their names! Sorry!)well they pretty much took over, calming me right down and then methodically ringng first Sainsbury's, and went down there to fetch some keys which turned out not to be mine, before contacting the police.... I meanwhile being the pessimist (compared to their optimism) started trying to organise with a courier to send my spare et down from home c/o a neighbour. Was just about to finalise this when the lady came across and said that her partner was already on his way to Leamington Spa police station where they thought they had my keys.. postponed organisation of courier and tried to chill and wait... within 20 minutes the gentleman was back... clutching my keys! Never been so relieved in my life! They were an extremely nice couple who went out of their way in my crisis and I will always be very grateful for that. Additionally the site was perfect for walking my dog alongside my mobility scooter (very few places where you can accommodate both but Warwick hit the nail on the head) I just wanted to stay longer and will definitely be back , maybe for the races? You would get a brilliant view of the action from inside your MH if parked on one of the course frontage plots! Thank you SO much to the staff at Warwick!
