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).

Supermarket notes:

The closest is Sainsburys in Warwick town centre, about 10 minutes walk from the site. It is accessible to motorhomes.

Good town break site

An adequate site with an approximately even mix of grass/tarmac. The MHSP leaves much to be desired and the chemical disposal point is a fair walk from the far end of the site. There is some background noise from aircraft overflying to BHX but not too intrusive. It did seem to disrupt the TV signal for which there are no aerial sockets on the EHU pillars. Plus points are the proximity to the town/ bus station/castle. Suitable for a 3/4 day break.

Close proximity to Warwick

Pleasant little site, you would be very close to the action if you were interested in the horse racing. Close proximity to centre of Warwick, a large supermarket and good pubs close by. Only downside is the toilet/shower block, although the staff keep it clean it is in need of refurbishment. Some road noise from the M40 and some aircraft noise but not too intrusive.

Castle Visit

The major advantage of this site is how close it is to the town of Warwick. As motorhomers this is the sort of site which is ideal for us. The town has good transport links with regular services from the Bus Station. A trip to Royal Leamington Spa is well worth while. The main purpose of this trip was to visit the Castle which is about a half mile walk from the site. Tickets on the gate are very expensive so its best to buy online before you go. The Club have an excellent online offer. The site is fairly typical racecourse with a mix of grass/gravel/tarmac pitches. We preferred the tarmac and had a nice view out over the racecourse. As has been said the toilet block is a bit dated. Other facilities like water and waste are fairly restricted and concentrated around the toilet block with one other tap at the other end of the site. The motorhome service point can be a bit difficult to access if there is a caravan and car on the adjacent pitch. Not their fault but I would suggest that the pitch marker should be moved back a bit. Unsurprisingly the motorhome drain point still needs heavy drain covers to be lifted. No WiFi here but found I could make use of 4G on my phone.

Another visit to Warwick

This is a small site with excellent dog walking around the racecourse. The wardens are friendly and helpful. Facilities are basic and slightly outdated but always clean. Not sure there was a separate toilet for when the shower blocks were being cleaned. Access to the town centre is very good and there are plenty of shops and cafes, some of which allow dogs inside. Be aware that Nero’s were not aware that their national policy was now to allow dogs. We can recommend The Portuguese Cafe across town, which is in Coten End near St Nicholas Park.

Great for the city

Another excellent city site and so well situated. This is not a criticism, just a statement that the site is now slightly dated compared to some others, but having said that all the facilities are there and are perfectly clean and usable but would benefit from upgrading in the near future. Maybe its the flagship sites that spoil you !!! Please dont let this put you off visiting, as its a site well worth returning to.
