Briarfields Touring Park: We have 3 cosy glamping pods

General

  • Adults-only park a couple of minutes' drive from the M5
  • Use as an overnight stopover or as a base for Cheltenham or Gloucester
  • Landscaped with mature shrubs, hedges and trees

Apart from a possible pitch on a tower block in the middle of a city, Briarfields Touring Park might be the most ‘leave your car at home’ site we’ve seen yet. Ditch the diesel guzzler or leave the motorhome on site and hitch a ride on one of the regular buses that pass right outside, leading to days’ worth of days out at Cheltenham (two miles away), Gloucester (six miles), Oxford, the Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds. And if you’re getting around under your own steam, the friendly family team at Briarfields can pick you up from local public transport when you arrive.

Even on your own feet you’ll reach most of what you need quickly from the park: a pub and a newsagent are within a few minutes’ walk; an Indian restaurant, KFC and supermarket less than 15 minutes – and a caravan sales and spares dealership is a mile and a half away, just in case.

Although Briarfields is only a couple of minutes from the M5 (it’s often used by guests on their way north or south as an overnight stopover), it’s been rather cleverly designed so you can think you’re slap bang in the middle of the countryside: the landscaped and the accommodation areas are edged throughout with mature shrubs, hedges and trees.

Amenities are equally well looked after: the centrally placed amenities block is cleaned twice a day and has free hot showers for ladies, gents and disabled guests.

Swing into reception when you arrive at Briarfields for reams of info, leaflets and maps on the many (many) things to do a bus ride away: buses run every ten minutes during the day and every 20 minutes in the evening to both Cheltenham and Gloucester, and another service to Oxford will give explorers about six hours in the city before heading back to Cheltenham.

Briarfields is open all year round and is dog-friendly.

Pitch in-front of chemical waste shouldn’t be used…not pleasant!!16/08/2022

    Friendly welcome. Facilities good with music playing in the bathrooms which is a nice touch, especially when showering late at night.

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch was right in-front of the chemical waste point and walkway through to the facilities, so no privacy. Having people come and empty their toilets whilst we were trying to eat was most unpleasant.

From the manager...

I'm deeply saddened by your comments Karen and so sorry you didn't enjoy your stopover with us. Had we have known that this was an issue we could have offered you an alternative pitch.

This is the first time this issue has been brought to our attention in 11 years of owning the park. We have 3 chemical disposal points which are surrounded by dense mature hedges and are spaced out around the park for guests convenience. We will most definitely be reviewing the location of our chemical points following your feedback.

With regards to the lack of privacy on your pitch; we have planted in excess of 2000 hornbeam/beech hedges every year for the past 6 years. The hedge to the right of your pitch adjacent to your neighbours was in the first round of hedges that we planted and is now lovely and mature. We appreciate that the hedges planted last winter (the hedge by the path) will take some time to mature but it is incredibly important to us to plant native hedging as opposed to other means. Hornbeam hedging is dense with thick foliage making a perfect nesting site as it holds its leaves throughout winter, it provides a safe and secure habitat for garden wildlife during the cold season. It allows wildlife to move freely around the park, provides clear boundaries and natural windbreaks.

Thank you for your feedback.

    A very warm welcome was received at reception on arrival, also very helpful information given about surrounding amenities.
    The site is relatively small and very well laid out, toilet and shower facilites always very clean, also has a well equiped laundry room.
    We had an ample sized fully serviced pitch for a weekend stay - at a sensible price, we will return without a doubt.

    Only one small issue, needed a longer waste water hose on fully serviced pitch. With a bit of gorilla tape and a loan of a bit more hose from a kind neighbor, got round the problem

    Everything, by far the best site we have visited. Showers, toilets, wash basins and washing up area are all fantastic and spotlessly clean, WiFi is excellent too.
    It's a great place to use as a base to visit the surrounding area, or just do nothing and relax and make new friends.
    Bus stop just outside to Cheltenham ( well worth a full day visit) and Gloucester. Pitches are large enough to give you some privacy from the next pitch, we found everyone really sociable and chatty.
    The management have it spot on here, friendly and helpful, it's a lovely site and we'll be definitely staying again in the nr future.

Local attractions

Well. Where do we start? At least a day in Cheltenham first, we think – more if you’re coming to have a flutter at the racecourse just four miles away or jazzing it up at one of the many festivals.

Catch the bus early to take in as much as poss: a morning coveting the art, furniture, crafts and jewellery at Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum, many created by Cotswold craftspeople inspired by William Morris, should build up an appetite for lunch and an afternoon of shopping around The Brewery, Bath Road and in the well-lined High Street.

Harry Potter fans and the history-inclined will likely want an hour or two at medieval Gloucester Cathedral, used in the first and second films (see if you recognise the Cloisters). Away from Hogwarts, the cathedral has an award-winning exhibition centre, exhibitions and guided tours, and regular events and concerts including The Three Choirs Festival, one of the oldest classical choral music festivals in the world.

The Gloucester Docks and award-winning Waterways Museum is also a good afternoon out for heritage fans, while the more modern can find plenty to occupy them at the waterside retail park Gloucester Quays.

Plunge into the countryside next for a couple of days in the Cotswolds, where you’ll find acres of things to do whatever your inclination such as punting around local villages like Chipping Camden and Bourton-on-the-Water, or visiting the many museums ranging from Roman to motoring times.

Wildlife options abound too, particularly for birders, with the Cotswold Falconry Centre at the Batsford Arboretum, geese and swans at Slimbridge Wetland Centre, and Birdland Park and Gardens in Bourton-on-the-Water where twitchers can see rare birds from around the world, including England’s only group of king penguins.

Finally, take a day or two in the ancient Forest of Dean (Harry Potter and co ended up here too), one of the oldest woodlands in the country, to go underground at the old mines of the Clearwell Caves, hire a bike to hit the forest tracks, or, more relaxingly, take the four and a half mile trip from Lydney to Parkend on the Dean Forest Railway.

Must see

  • Gloucester Cathedral (5.2 miles)
  • Gloucester Quays (5.5 miles)
