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.

Warwick in the frost

A return visit to Warwick, which looked attractive in heavy frosts although some outside facilities froze and also our own waste tap on the final morning. Must remember to leave the tap open next time, use a bucket and empty the tank into it. The washblock is continuing to look very tired and with water on the floor not somewhere I'd want to use very often. Warwick itself looked attractive dressed up for Christmas, we enjoyed seeing all the Christmas trees in the Collegiate church of St Mary's. The Advent carol services are worth attending as Warwick choir and music have a good reputation, I bought one of their carol cds this year. We met up with family on this trip so visited various coffee shops and eateries. It was nice to return to Wylies a quaint cafe, in an alley off Swan st, tasty cakes and food to enjoy with a nice old fashioned sweet and biscuit shop too.

Enjoyable stay

Stayed 4 nights in November. Very impressed how much there is to see in the area. Site very convenient to Warwick. 10 minutes walk. Plenty of cafes and restaurants in the town. Some more hardstandings would be an advantage, especially at this time of year.

Enjoyable Stay

We stayed 4 nights leaving on the 11th Nov & found the facilities warm & clean. Did 2 walks from site & visited British Motor museum off M40 Junc 12. Ideally located to walk into Wawick which we did after one of our walks. 3 or 4 locks being repaired on canal path to cafe at top of Hatton Locks so no boat movements. enjoyed soup hot chocolate & toasted tea cake. No children with us so cannot comment about that. We felt gravel pitches themselves were in need of some attention.(a little 'tired' looking)
