Cube Modular, part of the Cube International group, said it will build the village within a short walk from the main entrance of the racecourse.
The village, situated on Cheltenham Tigers’ Newslands Park complex, will provide accommodation for up to 250 race-goers and will offer two different types of accommodation, the StayLets Village and Caboose Town.
StayLets Village is described as a glamping equivalent that is newly designed with fitted units and low in carbon footprint. Full hospitality and food and drink options from the Tigers’ clubhouse and catering team are available for customers.
The Caboose Town (pictured) is described as having pop-up boutique VIP hotel rooms with individual terraces and ensuite bathrooms.
Cube Modular MD Brandon Weston 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.
StayLets (part of The Markey Group) MD Oliver Williams said, “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.”
Cheltenham Festival 2023 takes place from 14-17 March.
