Andoversford is home to the Cotswold Point-to-Point races, an enduring fixture in the Gloucestershire sporting calendar. Some of the country’s best steeplechasers have been seen at Andoversford, and we’re situated right in the middle of racing country, equidistant from the large training yards of Jonjo O’Neill, Kim Bailey, Nigel Twiston-Davies and Tom George.

Come racing at Andoversford, and you can expect to see competitive and entertaining racing, rub shoulders with friends, the rich & famous, and horsemen from all over the West Country, and enjoy a quintessentially British afternoon’s entertainment
