A temporary pop-up village that will provide accommodation for up to 250 race-goers at next year's Cheltenham Festival has been unveiled by Gloucestershire-based serviced accommodation provider StayLets.

StayLets has teamed up with Cube Modular Ltd and Cheltenham Tigers RFC to provide the accommodation village.

Situated less than a 15-minute walk away from the Cheltenham Racecourse main entrance, the temporary pop-up village will be built on Cheltenham Tigers’ Newlands Park complex. It will offer two distinctly different accommodation alternatives.

The StayLets Village is billed as a glamping equivalent newly designed and fitted units available in twin or quad configurations, with shared communal luxury bathroom and shower amenities.

Meanwhile Caboose Town promises as pop-up boutique VIP hotel room experience with individual terraces and ensuite bathrooms.

The accommodation must be booked for four nights with prices ranging from £190 to £400 per night, per unit. Bookings for these are now open and can be booked at

Oliver Williams, managing director of StayLets, part of The Markey Group said: “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 will come equipped with bedding and both parking and breakfast will be bookable in advance.
