    We're off to Cheltenham races for my best mates stag do on the 16th November (weekend of the Paddy Power Gold Cup).

    We're a bit worried that a group of around 30 rowdy lads (and some older of course) may be a little bit out of place in Cheltenham.

    None of us have ever been to Cheltenham before so I'm looking for some tips on where we can go and stay?

    Don't mind travelling up to 45 minutes from the races if needs be.
