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 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 sent to Cartmel office 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, local B&B’s, and our own hostel, 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.
On the evening before racing a 15.00 complimentary voucher is available for use until 9.30pm in the Royal Oak pub in Cartmel Square.
Race Day Stable Attendant Catering
Our Stable Staff Canteen is situated to the rear of the stable yard where hot and cold meals will be available throughout the race day from 10 a.m until approximately 1 hour after the last race.
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 really would appreciate your feedback on the new bar and parking arrangements (including free lunch) which will help us to direct our budget in future years. We look forward to seeing you and wish you a safe journey and the best of luck.
