We went to the Ladies Day meeting in June and were able to buy tickets for the Paddock 2 for the price of 1, which was excellent value at £18 for the 2. Getting in and round the racecourse is extremely easy and facilities are all clean and in good order. A great event to attend, with lots of people... More

Unusually for a National Hunt racecourse it stages no meetings in the winter period. I remember days in the past when meetings then often had to be cancelled after rain due to waterlogging and even flooding due to the adjacent River Teign. The 18 fixtures between March and October include a number of evening meetings. I hadn't been here for... More
