  • A managed site
  • Tent campers welcome
  • Close to convenience and city centers

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.
