The Orchard™ Pods were introduced by Cheltenham in 2020 and are a popular addition to the wide range of hospitality options available at the Festival. In essence, the Pods are individual log cabins with a private terrace. The style is intimate & casual, and the package can be tailored to suit your distinct requirements. They are located to take advantage of the upmarket ambience of The Orchard™.
The Orchard™ is Cheltenham’s new experience area, with luxury brands including Bentley, Boodles, Holland & Holland, premier shopping opportunities and a live DJ. It is situated with a 5-minute walk from the Parade Ring.
The Pods are very casual with a small sofa, coffee table and high stool seats with a ‘breakfast-bar’ to eat your lunch. The facility may be cold if the weather is unkind.
A Club Admission ticket is included, which is the premier enclosure at Cheltenham. Please note that the racing cannot be viewed directly from this facility. To view the racing, you need to walk to the rails or make your way to the tiered steps in the Grandstand.
You can pre-order a sumptuous buffet to be served in your Pod from a choice of menus.
Drinks are extra, but you can pre-order drinks, which will be stocked in your private Pod bar.
Service throughout is left to the waiting staff. There is not a hostess service.
The package does not include a racing tipster.
There are ample TV monitors throughout the facility, as well as a PA system for the tipster.
Car park passes are allocated on a 1:2 basis, car parking is situated in the general public areas.
A Racecard is included, and there are Tote betting facilities available.
Officially there is no dress code at Cheltenham, the course recommends dressing for the weather. However, in hospitality areas, gentlemen usually wear a suit or similar, and many ladies choose to wear county-style hats.
The racecourse postcode is GL50 4SH for use with GPS equipment. However, on a race day, customers are strongly advised to follow temporary signs when entering Cheltenham and the local area and not the brown permanent signs.
