New Cheltenham Festival Caboose-style accommodation has been unveiled for 2023 by Gloucestershire-based serviced accommodation provider, StayLets, in partnership with Cube and Cheltenham Tigers RFC, bringing a unique accommodation village for the March Festival. The village will be built within minutes walk from the main entrance of the racecourse.
The temporary pop-up accommodation village, situated on Cheltenham Tigers’ Newslands Park complex, will utilise Caboose units and provide luxury accommodation as well as glamping-style units for up to 250 race-goers, offering two distinctly different accommodation alternatives:
The StayLets Village – newly designed and fitted units, incredibly low in carbon footprint, insulated, powered and secure, available in twin or quad configurations, with shared communal luxury bathroom and shower amenities. This is your glamping equivalent, but in the beautiful countryside under the shadow of Cleeve Hill, with onsite parking available, and the full hospitality and food and drink options from the Tigers’ excellent clubhouse and catering team.
Caboose Town – something a little bit different. Think pop-up boutique VIP hotel rooms with individual terraces and ensuite bathrooms. Next level accommodation designed for comfort and delivered in style for discerning customers and race-goers.
Brandon Weston, Cube Modular’s MD said: “Our Caboose products enhance and complement our sustainable, award-winning and stylish modular portable building offering for event and festival organisers. We’re thrilled to be partnering with both Staylets and Cheltenham Tigers in bringing this new and unique accommodation solution for Cheltenham Festival racegoers next year. We are very much looking forward to showcasing the exclusive Caboose Town and Accommodation Village concepts at the event!”
Oliver Williams, Managing Director of StayLets, part of The Markey Group, added: “We are excited to be working with Cube Modular and Cheltenham Tigers on this exciting collaboration and delivering a new and alternative place for race-goers to stay. Anyone who has been to Cheltenham before will know that accommodation can be very hard to come by with race-goers often having to stay as much as an hour’s drive away. This is probably the closest accommodation you can get, short of sleeping in a stable!”
The accommodation is available for 4 nights with prices ranging from £190 to £400 per unit, per night. Bookings are now open online via www.staylets.co.uk. All units come equipped with bedding, with both parking and breakfast bookable in advance.
