We ran the caravan site in the middle of the racecourse in 2014. race days were very well run, with extra staff laid on for parking duties. The ground inside the track becomes a massive car park and everyone walks across the track to get to the stands. During racing the only restrictions crossing the track are 10 minutes either... More

Was really looking forward to this, shame about the weather but is Jan after all! Will be returning soon. The facilities were very very busy, couldn't move anywhere. people had obviously got there very early to get the tables indoors and set up camp for the day. Only managed to last a little while before retreating. Will be back in... More

New years day event..... A total washout at an event that shouldn't have gone ahead. I spent 40mins trying to get my car out of the mud....!!!!! After 30mins I actually located someone to help. Due to the weather everyone rightly fills the insides up and as a consequence there's nowhere to sit.... My advice, only go if its dry.... More

Had a fab day, lots and lots of fun! Loved all the little stalls and food parlours, great family friendly day! The Clydesdales were the highlight for me, I loved hearing and seeing them come thundering down the track.

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!
