First visit to this course. Got a taxi from the railway station for £6.60. Got a bus back for £2 each , which dropped us close to the station. Nice course. Fairly compact. Plenty of greenery around. I was surprised at the small crowd for a day during school holidays. We didn't eat there. Beer/ lager was the standard racecourse... More

Took picnic with us , beer quite expensive £4 carling but expected this. We occasionally felt unsure about where we were and were not allowed access to as... More

We had a wonderful time at the family fun day. Plus when we got inside all the attractions were free! Face painting balloon modelling fair rides, pony rides!!! If you go on the cheap I'd recommend you take your own food and drink as very expensive

Could travel round and look at all aspectsie minners enclusure etc without having to have special tickets. Cost us £9 each and was worth every penny. The only thing I would be negative about would be the amount... More

This is a lovely course to "Go racing" all facilities are in close proximity, ie,parade ring, unsaddling enclosure ,bookies,viewing area with the added bonus of being able to see all of the course.Snacks are also readily available although the cost is rather expensive.

A very nice little course in a lovely setting. Friendly staff. Big problem was the choice of beer. I had 2 Irishmen with me who had Guinness. They gave the staff a little lesson (lighthearted) in how to pour it, and then tried it and regretted the effort; beer went back. With a "creamflow" beer as the only other option... More

Loved family fun day. My children went on the ponies, fun house, bucking bronco, inflatable slide and bouncy castle. Didn't eat here though as there weren't any healthyish options but that's often the case as these types of events. Lovely course where everything is easy to see.

We found the racecourse spacious plenty of room to move around & good viewing..the area around the parade ring is nice with plenty of grassy areas. The only down side of the course was there was only one room where you could get a drink..it had a bar at either but the room was not big enough to take all... More
