Generally this is a very good site. It is well located on the outskirts of Cheltenham making it ideal to explore that town and also Gloucester. I believe that the bus connections to both are excellent although I drove to both. It is easily accessible from the M5 and also has good local amenities having takeaways, restaurants and shops within close walking distance.

The site itself is well looked after with friendly and helpful wardens. Most of the caravan pitches consist of a hard concrete base with an adjoining gravelled area for an awning. The toilet and shower building was clean and tidy and whilst we were there they were actually building an extension to it which could improve availability which might be a problem in peak periods.

So a very good site to either serve as a base for exploring the area or as a stop-off on the way elsewhere. There's only one problem. Because of the location there is quite a lot of traffic noise and I don't know if it was my imagination but the incidence of emergency services sirens seemed very prevalent in Cheltenham. The noise might reduce in summer when the leaves provide some sound deadening but if you want peace and quiet, this is probably not a site for you.

A pleasant site centrally located, with very helpful owners. Extra showers were being installed ( Jan 2014). Each pitch has hard standing and electricity for caravans/ motor homes. Easy disposal of grey water and plenty of water points. Good security ( barrier with key- 10 returnable deposit). Buses outside run every 10 mins. Handy for M5. Noise from traffic and small planes but we would still return to this site.

Unable to comment on child friendliness - as we are a couple with no children but it is a site near a city.

We have visited this site on numerous occasions with our motorhome and previously in a trailer tent. The owners and staff are always friendly and helpful. The buses are brilliant every ten minutes right outside the site to Cheltenham and Gloucester. We sometimes walk into Cheltenham which takes less than half a hour. The motorhome drive over emptying point that has been recently installed is really helpful with water for washing out the tank + drinking water all in the same place. The toilet and shower block is always warm and clean. It does need more showers for busy periods but I am told that these are going to be installed shortly. One of the reasons we like this site is you don't need a car with pub restaurant KFC and supermarket all less than a 15 min walk + a barrier that makes everything secure. One of the minuses is if you have children I have not seen any play areas for them.

We have visited this campsite several times over the past two years. The owners always make us welcome and provide information when needed. The location is superb for visiting Cheltenham and the races, but the real gem is the superb indian restaurant just a short walk down the road. The facilities are very clean, and prices very fair compared to other sites we use during the year. Every time we return you can see the owners are trying to work to improve the surroundings and the majority of people I have spoken to seem very impressed with their efforts.

Handy site for stopover, good hardstandings, terrible road noise as so close to motorway, chemical toilet disposal in poor state, toilets and shower rooms look good from outside but disappointing inside only 2 showers. Went to use the ladies at 9. 20am and they were closed for cleaning ! had to use the one and only disabled toilet/shower room, decided not to shower as I didn't want to take up to much time in there in case other people needed the loo, if site was full then closing facilities this early is not good as that's when they are at there busiest. Wouldn't use again

Located this site through UKCampsite.co.uk and thought we'd give it a try on our first visit to Gloucester. Our main reason for choosing Briarfields was the easy access to both Cheltenham and Gloucester by bus. The bus stop is literally outside the gate and buses run every 10 minutes or every 15 on a Sunday.

When we arrived after a not very good drive from the Shepton Mallet show, we received a really warm welcome. Scott gave us a lot of information regarding the local area, nothing was to much trouble. We were given a nice pitch just inside the site and were easily able to pick up wifi.

The site is very well laid out, with plenty of room. The toilets and showers are very clean, there is a laundry room and dish washing area.

The traffic noise is not intrusive when in the van, but may be a bit noisy if you're not used to busy roads. Plenty of local shops, Asda quite near.

We are looking forward to visiting Cheltenham tomorrow for a bit of retail therapy.

All in all a nice site in a good location. Will definitely return and recommend to friends. 9/10.
