WHAT PEOPLE SAY
GLYNIS, via TRIP ADVISOR
"Little oasis off the A57 ... Visited today for the very first time after passing literally hundreds of times on my way to work! What was lovely is how it has retained its original personality."

"Great place to watch aircraft. You can walk part way up the control tower to see the entire airfield. There's a new aviation themed kids play area and a cafe / bar / restaurant on site which is reasonably priced. Parking is free too!"
