 A great site, well located (except for a bit of traffic noise from the A40 !) - between GCHQ and Gloucester Airport (go there for the Aviator bar restaurant overlooking the runways - interesting and good food & drink).

The reception is always open during usual business hours, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A very efficient numberplate recognition system for auto-opening in and out barriers, and for extra security there is a 2. 3m height limit barrier in place at night.

The centrally located facilities block has everything required and is kept clean and well maintained - showers hot and powerful.

 We have stayed at Briarfields many times and it never fails to impress.

The facilities are excellent, always clean and warm.

The pitches are spacious and well managed.

There is a laundry with washing machine and tumble dryer and also a book swap.

The access to both Cheltenham and Gloucester is really handy. We always use the buses as the stops are just outside the site.

We also love having a meal at The Aviator pub at Staverton airport, which isn't too far (we like to walk there and back).

Asda is very close by, too, for fuel and shopping. Also close by is a Harvester.

There is a bit of traffic noise but you soon get used to it.

We certainly will keep coming back.

 We booked Briarfields as it was close to Gloucester where our youngest daughter now lives. A number of reviews refer to the road noise and sound of light aircraft overhead. Yes, it is close to the A40 and M5 and Gloucestershire Airport. But you can see this when you look at the map of where the site is. If you want to only hear the sound of birdsong all day, then this isnít the site for you! But for us, the road and aircraft noise wasnít intrusive at all.

Being close to the M5/A40 meant that it we were in easy reach of Gloucester and Cheltenham as well as the Cotswolds and surrounding area. There is a bus stop right outside the site too where we could easily catch the bus into Cheltenham or Gloucester. So for us, for what we wanted/ needed it was perfect. The actual site was quiet.

The shower/toilet block was modern and pristine with plenty of hot water. The site is tidy and well kept.

The staff were lovely, polite, helpful and friendly.

If/when we take our caravan down that way again we will definitely look to book Briarfields again.

 This is a pleasant and friendly site that offers good size plots.

It is located near out of town shopping that includes a supermarket for normal holiday stock.

Across the road to the site a bus goes into Cheltenham and there are a variety of local dog walking areas.

 This was our second visit this year and really can't praise the site and the staff enough.

I notice a few reviews criticise the noise but it really isn't that bad, we've been to far noisier sites.

Having a fairly large motorhome we look for sites that have close bus/train connections and here the bus stop is right outside the gate.

Gloucester airport is a 5 minute bus ride and the museum there is really well worth a visit.

Being a retired pilot, and being tempted by the light aircraft on approach to the airport, I managed to secure an hour in a 57 year old Piper Super Cub.

Can't wait to go back.

Gloucester is well worth the 25 minute bus ride as there is lots to see.

 Our pitch was opposite the facilities block, which was convenient, but curiously the EHU point for our pitch was not shared with the next pitch (as is usual) but 2 pitches further away! Our EHU cable was therefore not long enough & we had to borrow an extension EHU from reception, to which ours plugged into & then to the EHU point.

The toilets & showers had been refurbished since our last visit in June 2022 Ė very clean and smart! However I did notice that the first time in the showers that the cubicle I had chosen didnít have anywhere to put my toiletries, other than on the floor. When I checked the other cubicles afterwards, they all had storage racks. However the missing rack had reappeared by the next day!

Towards the end of our stay, I noticed that the inside handle to the ladiesí toilets was coming off Ė two screws missing - but this was repaired a day or so later.

There is supposed to be a 10mph speed limit and a one-way system around the site, but unfortunately we witnessed several vehicles flouting this, clearly exceeding 10mph (despite a couple of speed bumps) and going the wrong way round. (Some campervans may have been going to the emptying point, but we saw cars also going the wrong way. )

Because of its location, close to the A40 and Gloucestershire Airport, the site is noisy; being nearer the roadside this time, we noticed the traffic noise at night, including sirens, but thatís not something the owners can really do anything about. Most of the time, it didnít bother us, and I quite enjoyed seeing the planes come over and we even went to the Busy Bees Cafť next to the airport to watch the planes Ė even saw a biplane!

It is a lovely site, all in all, and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay, despite having some rainy days & the bonus was about 4kg of blackberries which we managed to collect in the local area!

Reviewer: Cheshire roamers 1 review from this member

 We spent 2 nights here with friends on our way down to visit family in Cornwall.

Our friend had her leg in plaster and they were allocated a pitch across from the facilities block which was enormously helpfully.

The facilities and site were spotlessly clean, lovely and quiet as it's an adults only site, a little noise during the day from the road but as its such a brilliant location for the motorway it's not a surprise, it's quiet at night. The lady on reception was very helpful.

The site is just a short walk from an eatery and there are bus stops (wheelchair friendly too) right outside the gate.

We would definitely use again and recommend too.

Reviewer: Albas 6 reviews from this member

 I was reminded that it was 6 years since I last stayed here and if anything as a site it has got even better.

The pluses are, it is immaculate, well maintained with facilities as good as any.

The reception staff are friendly and efficient. The pitches are well spaced out with plenty of room on each.

The 94 bus route right outside is an absolute godsend to enjoy the delights of both Gloucester and Cheltenham.

The only downside is something the site owners canít do much about and that is the traffic noise.

Being surrounded by the A40 and very busy sideroads means traffic noise through the night.

However any problems from that were more than made up for by having the Avro Lancaster on a fly past to Staverton Airport come low and right overhead as it circled the base. I will remember that for a long while.

 Lovely site. Short walk to shopping centre, and a 5 minute bus ride to Gloucester Airport where there is a free to visit aircraft museum.

Guy on reception was very pleasant and humorous, and the toilets were immaculate.

The only criticism (although minor) was that our pitch had a very forward slope which prevented us from levelling our motorhome properly.

Will certainly return.
