Briarfields is and open all year, adults only, campsite situated on the western edge of Cheltenham.  There are 76 pitches on either gravel or concrete hardstandings, or a mix of both, plus some tent pitches on grass. These are complemented by some nice landscaping. Mostly pitches have a concrete runway for either caravan or motorhome with a gravel section alongside for an awning if required. Cars are parked across the front of the pitch, partly on gravel and partly on the site road. We were there out of the main season so difficult to judge whether this arrangement has any effect of access to pitches when the site is busy? Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 10 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There is one central toilet block of an excellent standard which includes a laundry and dishwashing sinks. There are several water taps around the site but some of these are a bit hidden behind pitches. The site could do with a few more taps and grey water emptying points. There are a couple of chemical toilet emptying points. The motorhome service point has a good drive over drain point and alongside is drinking water to replenish tanks, there is also a chemical emptying point nearby. There is site wide free WiFi. Site fees are quite modest, ranging from £17 to £21 a night (2016). Whilst it is advertised as a touring campsite there does seem to be some seasonals on site and some obviously being using by tradesmen. Given the vicinity of several major roads in the area of the campsite there is some road noise. The site is also on the flight path to the local airport so there is some daytime noise from light aircraft. Please note that this campsite is no longer in the ACSI discount scheme.

This is a good site if you prefer not to use your own transport. There is a frequent bus service to both Cheltenham and Gloucester from virtually outside the campsite. Also nearby is a Harvester Pub and for shopping there is an ASDA store a little further on. This is a good alternative to the Cheltenham Racecourse campsite.
