Fancy a flutter? Indulge in the sport of royalty with a quick canter from Regents Park Stansby Touring Park in Gloucestershire, a small and friendly family-run site with easy access to Cheltenham Racecourse, Cheltenham city centre and Gloucester.
(Ditch the car and save petrol money for punts: a park and ride service into Cheltenham is a five-minute saunter from the site, and the bus to Cheltenham and Gloucester stops just outside the entrance.)
Although Regents Park Stansby is on the edge of Cheltenham, it’s easy to trot off into the surrounding countryside and there are hill views from the park on three sides including the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty rising above the Severn Valley (the view from here is a top cameraworthy opp).
Many guests park themselves at Regents to tour the Cotswolds too, and if you’re going further afield it’s only a five-minute drive to Junction 11 of the M5.
Back at base, all reigns well at Regents: the well-maintained amenities include a toilet and shower block alongside a toilet for disabled guests, a chemical disposal point and a washing-up area. A local shop with newspapers and essential groceries is a short walk away, two supermarkets within a mile and a Harvester restaurant and pubs dishing up food within a five-minute drive.
Barbecues are allowed at Regents Park Stansby, and, as you’d expect with all the walks around, the site extends a royally warm welcome to dogs too...
Cheltenham Spa Town, Cheltenham Racecourse, Cheltenham Literary Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Cheeserolling!!, The Cotswolds (Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold, Broadway, Chipping Camden to name just a few), Cheltenham Everyman Theatre and Town Hall for entertainment/shows, the Malvern Three Counties Showground, Tewkesbury Medieval Town, Gloucester Quays and City attractions including Gloucester Cathedral, The Forest of Dean, the Cotswold Way ... too many to list.
