Newton Abbot racecourse is situated only 10-15 mins from the hotel, and provides an exciting day out watching National Hunt racing ("the jumps") in a relaxed and fun environment. There are 18 fixtures running from April-October. There's plenty of parking, or we can arrange a taxi to take you to/from the course. The racecourse also stages antique fairs, car boot sales and other fun events on many non-race days.
