Excellent site with approx 75 pitches All are hard standings with grass in between. The facilities are exceptionally clean with nice hot showers. I shall return without any reservations to this site. Plenty to do around the area too

Reviewer: Kensingtongreen 31 reviews from this member

This site is ideally placed between Gloucester and Cheltenham and there is an excellent and frequent bus service in both directions. We, too, experienced some traffic and aircraft noise but it is not obtrusive and we were there to visit both cities not to seek peace and quiet. That being said the pitches were a bit short and quite close together. There is very little privacy if your neighbours have a unit AND a car. The staff were very helpful and informative. The facilities were warm but might struggle when Summer comes. At £18 per night we were more than happy with our stay.

Have just returned home after spending a lovely Christmas and New year at Briarfields, where we received a VERY warm welcome on arrival.

It was our first visit and weíll definitely be returning and have already recommended Briarfields to fellow caravanners.

The site is well maintained with easy access and is very secure with barriers.

The showers and toilets were very clean, nice and warm and had the local radio station playing (which was really lovely, enabling me to shower and sing along with George Michael !)

Yes there is some road and light aircraft noise but this didnít cause us any problems (and iím a light sleeper !)

Thereís a very good bus service to Cheltenham and Gloucester from outside the site entrance and a Harvester across the road

- a GREAT site if you want leave the car behind.

Reviewer: Sandgrounder52 9 reviews from this member

We stayed here overnight on our way from Southport to Devon. Although there was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't my cup of tea.

The lady on reception was charming. No problems with the staff at all.

I thought the pitches were quite tight. The access road through the site is quite narrow and car parking is at the front of your pitch alongside the edge of the road. We have a tiny van and we found manoeuvring onto the pitch quite challenging (resorting to push and shove at the end).

Although the road noise wasn't overwhelming it was noticeable and did affect my sleep. At one point in the middle of the night (4am or so) there was so much traffic going past I wondered if there was a shift change at GCHQ. Funnily enough, I didn't mind the aircraft noise at all & it was interesting to see the odd private jet fly overhead.

The toilet block was clean with good showers but there was a problem with the toilets, none of them had a powerful flush and some of them took several minutes to refill the cisterns. When you combine that with caravanners only using their own facilities for 'liquid deposits' it meant the toilets tended not to be clean when you went to use them. Also, to leave them in an acceptable state was quite difficult. Not the most pleasant experience.

My husband wasn't too keen on the arrangement whereby the grey waste was disposed of at the CDP.

We were meeting friends for an evening meal (The Gloucester Old Spot about 10 minutes drive away - fantastic food, recommended in the Michelin Guide) so we can't comment on local facilities but we were given a map that showed local supermarkets etc were very close.

All in all, I would stay there again if I needed a stopover in the locality but it isn't a site I would particularly seek out.

Off again in our Old but beautiful Talbot Pullman we booking into a little gem of a site. Really nice. Well maintained. Good location for bus service, 10mins outside the gate. Food and drink very accessible just down the road. Highly recommended

We have recently returned from this Adults only site and enjoyed every minute of it. Very reasonably priced considering it was in the middle of the 'Peak Period' when a lot of adult only sites (and other site owners) feel the need to charge a hefty surcharge.

Site is very easy to find as it is approx. 1 mile from junction 11 of M5. Considering its location you must expect a small amount of traffic noise but this was far from excessive and did not bother us at all. Being near to the airfield it was an added bonus watching the small planes overhead not at all intrusive.

The park itself we found to be very tidy and well kept with all of the grassed areas well looked after. The toilet/shower block was kept spotless with its piped music and plenty of hot water. The hand sanitiser by the chemical diposal point was another nice touch. Also the site has Free Wi-Fi.

Asda, KFC, B&Q, Pets at Home and Home Bargains are all within 15 minute stroll via underpass under the main A40. There is a bus service at the front of the park with buses every 10 minutes to Cheltenham and Gloucester, both are well worth a visit especially by bus and free if you are oldies like us. There is a small camping field in the middle of the park again adults only. Had bonus of admiring a few American RVs on their way to the Malvern show.

All in all a very nice site to which we would not hesitate to return. Other reviews have expressed the fact that it is noisy however we found noise levels acceptable considering its location near to airport and two busy main roads which we knew about when we booked but this did not detract in any way from the enjoyment of our stay.

Had an extended stay at Briarfields recently. The site was just n immaculate condition and Scott and Jo couldn't have been more helpful. The site is in a great position close to cheltenham and gloucester and the surrounding areas and has a great local bus service just outside the campsite for those who need or wish to use it. It's a great, well run site that I would strongly recommend to anyone.

Reviewer: Gone on holiday 20 reviews from this member

Booked this site for one night as a stop off before carrying on to Cornwall. It cost £20 to park van for the night, cheaper than the motorway services which was £27. 50 when I was looking for somewhere. It's easy to find from the M5, about 5 minutes, just off the main road to Cheltenham, check in was easy & our pitch was right in front of the toilet block. We have stayed here before a few years ago & I think the toilet block has been replaced. It was a good job we had a motor mover for the van as it was hard to pitch the van as the vans opposite were a little close. It was scorching hot day so we sat outside the van but there was a lot of light airplanes that kept coming over the site which were very noisy, eventually they got the better of us. Having the toilet block close was good & the showers looked very nice, but there was a problem with them. They kept losing the heat, so sometimes the water was cold, then when you pressed the button again it was warm then turn cold, a bit hit & miss, but I managed to get a shower of sorts. We walked to the local Harvester about 10 minutes from the site for tea, then onto Asda just round the corner from the Harvester for a few things to tide us over while we got to Cornwall. There is also a road that runs in front of the site where you can catch a bus to Cheltenham or Gloucester, we were parked at the back of the site but there is also a road running past the site here too, so you do get road noise. It's an easy site to find, good for getting back onto M5, & 1 night can put up with the road/airplanes.

Brilliant site. Adults only heaven.

We first stayed last year and so pleased we found it.

Stopped here for 2 nights on the way up to the Lake District from Cornwall and for 1 night on the way home. It's perfect for us.

Mainly hard standings (area of grass for tents) all with EHU some with water very close by.

Central facilities block, always immaculately clean. Piped music 24-7 which is great. Lovely free showers too. Free WI-FI on site for those that can't live without it!

Bus stops to both Gloucester & Cheltenham right outside the site - £5 per person for a day rider into both places - great value for money.

Both Gloucester & Cheltenham are worth a wander around.

Short walk to the local Asda, Home Bargains, Pets At Home, B&Q, KFC and Harvester too.

There is some road noise during the day and you can watch a constant flow of light aircraft flying in and out of the local small runway.

We love this site and will continue to return and recommend!

A very nice little site just off the m5 which I used as an overnight stop over heading south.

Easily located just of the M5 (2 MINUTES) Nice spacious pitches (hardstanding) facilities within easy walking distance. Very pleasant owners/ wardens on arrival.

Toilets and showers to a good standard - Very clean

Supermarket/ pub/ kfc/ home bargains within walking distance.

Dogs accommodated but dog walk area off site and to be honest a bit painful to get to. Would have been great if there was just a bit of some area to let the doggies have a wee first and last thing. Other than that a great little site.

Would definitely use again as a stop over but not sure about any longer than that simply because of the facilities for the dogs.
