Located on the very edge of Cheltenham and close to the M5, Briarfields Motel provides simple accommodation for a low price. The motel is just a part of the Briarfields site, which also has pitches available for tents and caravans in an idyllic setting brimming with plants and wildlife.

Cheltenham Spa Rail Station is about 2-miles away from the site and there is regular bus service that operates from just outside the Briarfields grounds to Cheltenham, Gloucester and Oxford.


The motel has 20 rooms in total, which are all en-suite. The accommodation is a mixture of single, double, twin and family rooms, and is excellent value for money.

Despite the low price, the rooms at Briarfields motel are well equipped, each including a flat screen TV, fridge, microwave for meal preparation, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. Wi-Fi is also available throughout the motel and the campsite and is free of charge.


The campsite offers hard standing pitches for caravans and motorhomes and a separate grassy area for tents. There is a free shower and toilet block, which also includes a disabled washroom. Campers can make use of a laundry room and electric hook ups, as well.

Guests can book a mixture of accommodation if required, so parties can divide between the campsite and the motel, making this site ideal for large family groups where camping is maybe not an option for everyone.


Secure parking is provided, but guests are asked to pay a fully refundable £10 deposit to obtain a key fob for the electric barrier that is at the entrance to the site.

In the Area

Whilst there is no room service, restaurant or bar on site, there is a supermarket and several takeaway restaurants within walking distance.

The easy road access to Cheltenham, Gloucester, the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean make Briarfields an excellent choice for those wishing to explore the wider area within a limited budget.
