Why stay here ...
One of our caravan sites in North Yorkshire, Thirsk Racecourse Club Site is managed by The Club on behalf of the Racecourse. Whilst staying here you'll be pitched within sight of the main stand, with the famous turf stretching out before you. A 5-minute walk from the caravan park will take you to the lovely cobbled market town of Thirsk, with its quaint shops, pubs, cafes, secluded side streets and rich local atmosphere and the award winning James Herriot Museum. There are two supermarkets located adjacent to the site and the train station is only a mile away so you can easily visit the cities of York and Newcastle.
Conveniently situated midway between the A1 and the A19, Thirsk Racecourse Club Site makes for a natural overnight stop - but there's so much more to explore as well. Just a short drive away are many other traditional Yorkshire market towns such as Helmsley, Masham and Bedale. You will also be in pretty Herriot country, between the lovely rounded Yorkshire Dales and the more dramatic North York Moors - you'll want to make the time to enjoy the splendid views and walks that these two majestic destinations have to offer. There are various National Trust and English Heritage sites within the surrounding area, including spectacular abbeys such as Fountains, Rievaulx, Jervaux and Bylands. Whether you plan a longer stay or a short travelling break, this caravan site has much to recommend itself and you are assured a relaxing and pleasant stay.
Use following route only: caravans are not allowed on A170 Sutton Bank. Leave A1 at junction 50 signposted Ripon, Thirsk onto A61 (signposted Thirsk). Site entrance is on the left (just past the racecourse buildings).
