A great day out for Devon Day

The staff were all very friendly. The food and beer was a little pricey, but no different to most race courses. A great day out.

Stayed here for a week on the Caravan Club site. The site is very spacious, open and well maintained. The site has all the facilities you could want, except a restaurant on site. However, within walking distance are two cafe's both serving reasonable food. The horse racing was not on until October, but they were preparing the course. I would... More

A group of us came here in October. It was my first visit here for over 20 years and we had a good day at this elevated racecourse. The staff were pleasant and polite. This is one of the longer circuits in the country, in contrast to Newton Abbot nearby which is one of the shortest. The jump racing here... More

2 x tickets for £15 if ordered in advance entrance fee, is great value for money for a Sunday out in February at the races, billed as a family day, but we went as a couple and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, getting in and out of the course by car was made simple by the stewards. Thankfully the weather was... More

we were in the area to visit the race course, we are trying to visit all the race courses in the uk. we take a short break and try to get 2/3 meetings in the break. So far we have done around 50%. There were not enough seating indoors out of the cold, not a welcoming course!

The weather was not good, and it was very busy, we enjoyed the racing, but were dissapointed that having paid extra for the premier stand there was no evidence of badges being checked and it was very crowded, and we felt cheated that we had paid extra for no benefit. Otherwise the facilities and buildings are good and well cared... More

New Year's Day racing should be an enjoyable day out. Indeed two years ago it was. But this time it was a most disappointing experience. Traffic management on arriving was non- existent and potentially very dangerous as two lanes tried to merge into one on A38. Racecourse lane should have been coned off to prevent blocking second lane; through traffic... More

we were at the Exeter gold cup day. The hospitality shown by all the staff was first class, the whole day was a pleasure for us made by the attitude of all the people who work at the course. It makes a change in this day and age for people to take the time to be pleasant and very professional... More
