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.

Had Better weekends

This is the first time we have been to this site,Got to say it is in a great location for a stroll in to Warwick. The site itself is also set in a great position in the middle of the racecourse. Sadly I don’t think I will be returning to this site,There are 2 wardens and found the gentleman really nice and helpful and very talkative however I found the lady a bit rude with no sense of humor and NEVER said good morning back when you saw her,Yes I forgot to tell them what pitch I was on resulting in me not getting my gate/toilet code card and felt I had put them out when I ask for the codes,why You have to let them know what pitch your on is a mystery because they would be able to tell me which pitches are available to save the drive round the site to find the only pitch empty is the one opposite reception. The toilet block really needs to be brought up to date as well. I also found this site a little noisy with work going on behind us at 7.30am on a Monday morning (yes I go away to get up later than when I am at work),Next doors dog yapping at 07.15am and the owner keeps shouting it’s name instead of putting it the caravan (I know this is not the wardens fault):This sitehas great potential.

3 night stop over

Third time we have stayed at Warwick in our motorhome, first time was on tarmac which is ok for one night. Really warm welcome from the Wardens, nothing was too much trouble. No queues in the showers despite site being full. Location is perfect and the path going around the race track had just been laid in tarmac, lovely to walk around with or without dogs. Easy access to town and the Grand Union canal, nice gentle walk up the Hatton Flight locks and back. Would definitely return for a fourth time.

Summer 2018 stay at Warwick Raecourse Site

We stayed at Warwick Racecourse site for the first time for three nights end of June. We were surprised with this site having stayed at Exeter and Cheltenham sites previously. Small well layed out site within the inner part of the racecourse itself, reasonably secluded mostly and reasonably level. Just a short walk into Warwick itself with a nine hole golf course within the racecourse grounds. Warwick is a lovely English market town with excellent public transport close by and a choice of local facilities nearby and Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarkets a short drive from the site.it was our first visit but won’t be our last here. The whole experience was helped by the good weather during this summers trip.

Caulkhead

a very compact site, I have been on CL sites that are bigger and only allowed 5 vans, the toilets are ok but if site is at capacity then 3 bogs are not enough. same old problem with Yappie dogs, noisy planes overhead through the night, not the best, but it served its purpose for want we wanted to do. I thought it a bit pricey..

Much Better than we expected & great location

After speaking with a few people we didn’t have the highest expectations of the site, however that was based on their opinion and experience. We found the site to be nice and friendly, in a great location for Warwick (short stroll into town) The wardens were helpful and even researched dog sitters in the local area for us. The information on the site was good & facilities clean and usual club standard (same awful shower curtains!) There are good dog walks directly off the site and our pitch enjoyed good mobile signal and tv reception ( despite the warden saying that we might struggle) pitch 13. Dishwashing facilities were small and one sink on the site but there were more in the laundry room. There was the regular aeroplane noise and assume that we are on a flight path from Birmingham. It didn’t bother us much. Paper shop just up the road & a M&S food shop nearby. We enjoyed a walk along rivers and canal to leamington Spa which was worth a visit. Great site for exploring Warwick & surrounding area.
