Thirsk Racecourse Caravan Club Site is managed by The Club on behalf of the Racecourse. Whilst staying here you'll be pitched within sight of the main stand, with the famous turf stretching out before you. A 5-minute walk from the caravan park will take you to the lovely cobbled market town of Thirsk, with its quaint shops, pubs, secluded side streets and rich local atmosphere. The Black Lion restaurant and bar in the village is reported to serve delicious food, using locally sourced ingredients. There are two supermarkets located adjacent to the site and the train station is only a mile away so you can easily visit the cities of York, Leeds and Manchester.
Conveniently situated midway between the A1 and the A19, Thirsk Racecourse Caravan Club Site makes for a natural overnight stop as well as an extended family getaway. You will also be in pretty Herriot country, between the lovely rounded Yorkshire Dales and the more dramatic North York Moors - you'll want to make the time to enjoy the splendid views and walks that these two majestic destinations have to offer. There are various National Trust and English Heritage sites within the surrounding area, including spectacular Fountains Abbey, a Cistercian Abbey, Georgian water garden and deer park. If you visit here in the spring, you can enjoy the sight of beautiful bluebells in the woodland. Whether you plan a longer stay or a short travelling break, this caravan site has much to recommend itself and you are assured a relaxing and pleasant stay.
Thirsk Racecourse Caravan Club Site welcomes tent campers and has tent pitches available to both members and non-members. Pitches can be booked online or by phone - To do this and to find out further tent camping information, take a look at the Thirsk Racecourse tent camping page...

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
