We stay each year on our way to Cornwall and back from holiday as our daughter lives just 5 mins down Haldon Hill. Clean and friendly wardens and if anyone is looking for a site to visit Exeter it is excellent. (Only stayed going to Cornwall this year)

We have been to the races here several times now, in mid-winter and in the spring on the last occasion. Always great fun, helpful staff, plenty of parking (although wear flat shoes as it may be across muddy fields) Plenty of food and drink stands. Looking forward to the next season at the end of the year.

Exeter racecourse is on top of a hill so the views are pretty good to the south. Although no racing was on when we attended, there was lots to... More

Lovely caravan site. Very well looked after by Colin and Christine who were friendly and very helpful. The toilet block is very good. Had evening out at the races too which was half price entry for Caravan Club members! Will definitely visit again.

Attended an evening meeting. Easy to get to the course. Not a lot of choice of food but the pie was tasty. Good view of the course.

Camped on racecourse for two nights. Excellent facilities, (hot clean showers) great fun for children and dogs, so much space to run and play or fly a kite. Very helpful caretakers for us newbies!

Went on a designated family day event. Free fun things for kids to do. Mini ponies to strike and brush. Face painting only £3. Really good variety of food. Fun to watch all the horse races. Really enjoyed the whole day.

My husband decided we would go to the races last Sunday, and booked Premier tickets for the two of us.....which gave us entry to the course, seats inside, and a race card, and £5.00 to spend on food. A wonderful deal. However we got there shortly after the course was opened, no one had a clue where we were supposed... More
