Race Staff Information

Stabling and overnight accommodation 

Cartmel Racecourse has up to 75 stables, providing shavings or paper bedding which are allocated on arrival. 

The stable yard entrance is located off Park Road, 80 meters from the famous Cartmel Village Sticky Toffee Pudding Shop. The best route into the stable yard is through the village however, the bigger boxes may struggle to negotiate the ‘pudding corner’. If you intend on bringing a bigger horsebox please call the office on 015395 36340 to clarify arrangements. 

Overnight stabling and accommodation is ONLY available by prior arrangement. Please download and complete the overnight stabling & accommodation form- this information must be emailed to info@cartmel-racecourse.co.uk by 11am the day before racing.

We understand that a large percentage of our runners have travelled a considerable long way to race at Cartmel, therefore we aim to make your stay as comfortable as possible. To help us achieve this, please read the below prior to arrival: 

Whilst every effort will be made to provide each member of stable staff with a single room, due to very limited availability at The Cumbria Grand, and local B&B’s, it may be that 2 persons per room is unavoidable. In these circumstances, we will ensure that stable staff only share with same sex staff from their own yard, or similar career status.

When booked in to the Cumbria Grand, we will provide a named voucher for £15.00 towards dinner the night before racing (to be redeemed for food only).

Race Day Stable Attendant Catering 

Our Stable Staff Canteen is situated to the rear of the stable yard. As this facility forms part of the ‘Green Zone’ (at time of publication) then only race team members can access this area. We will be providing a complimentary lunch bag for all participants for 2021. This is because restrictions and regulations remain very dynamic and we want to provide a consistent lunch offer, with our compliments.

Morning Exercise

Morning exercise is available in the 7-acre field through the village, strictly by prior permission from the Clerk of the Course Anthea Morshead, mobile no. 07837 559861


We look forward to seeing you and wish you a safe journey and the best of luck.
