Eaglescott is a short hop from Swansea, albeit over the waters of the Bristol channel. Was a hazy rather flustery gusty day when we visited and the field was quiet. We'd carefully put the site into the GPS having been warned it could be tricky to find. The radar "golf ball" was conspicuous though, and the hardest part proved keeping the field in sight in the circuit -- combination of grubby vis, and the fact it's a field among fields!

A warm welcome and invite to have a look around and wander through the hangars greeted us, along with the coffee.

Looking a bit tatty in places so possibly not one to impress the non-flying passengers with, but the club was stuffed with comfy, battered sofas and magazines and looked like a really friendly sit-and-chat place during the warmer, busier summer days.

The runway was in good condition despite a soggy winter but the directions from the radio were definitely helpful in finding the less-conspicuous taxiway.

Nice trip.

We visited Eaglescott in August. 3 flex wings doing a tour of the west country and were delighted by the welcome given to us. Good facilities for an overnight camp. Good runway and marvelous cakes. We were taxied to pick up Mogas and were treated to a very welcome cooked breakfast in the morning to send us on our way. I look forward to revisiting next year and would recommend it to all Microlights and GA.

For anyone visiting North Devon Eaglescott is a real blessing.

Not only is the grass runway a reasonable length for most light singles, but it is well maintained with fuel (100LL) available at a good price.

I have flown in from Elstree several times to find a very warm welcome, low landing fees and cheap overnight parking. There is active gliding and micro-light activity at the airfield and the flying club have also arranged for YAK's to fly in for something different for members to fly.

Overall, it is a great place to visit, with some food avalailable at week-ends. However, given the nature of the Devon countryside, it helps to have a GPS to find it by air (although a radio station clsoe by helps), while finding it from the ground for a non-local is even worse!

Enjoy... it is a really friendly place
