Fully equipped all inclusive holiday home at Shobdon Airfiled
The spacious holiday home is based at Shobdon Airfield and is fully equipped for 4 people in 2 bedrooms with kitchen/lounge/dining areas - full sized cooker, microwave and fridge. The site is a fun place to be with a well run club and café on site - the bar is open Fridays for music night and there are generally lots of interesting things happening with small planes, helicopters and gliders flying in and out. Children are welcome and can play on the lawn area at the front of the club house and enjoy watching the planes come up close and sometimes see forces planes/air ambulances come in and out. You can go for a trial flight from the club and try your hand at microlight, fixed wing, helicopter or glider flying for yourself - it's surprisingly easy to take the controls to have a go on your first flight! The instructors are used to taking all kinds of people who've never flown before and will try to make sure you enjoy the experience - top tip - choose a nice day! The local area is very beautiful and boasts the black and white village trail and has really super walks - the county has some of the best cider and fruit farms who often offer their produce for sale.

About the Owner
I am experienced in holiday letting, reliable and flexible.
4 based on 6 holidaymaker reviews
Was worried as never booked online before, but the owner was very helpful and contacted me as soon as the booking was made, to answer any questions I had. The site itself is superb, very peaceful and situated in beautiful countryside. The caravan inside was immaculately clean and fresh, and the bed was extremely comfy. Everyone we met on the site were very friendly and willing to help if needed. I would without a doubt be returning and wouldn't look for anywhere else now we have found this place. The only downfall we had was the weather. So a massive thankyou and well done to everyone who made our stay perfect.
Long weekend stay
The accommodation is exactly as described and "does what it says on the tin", and is an ideal base for the local area and the airfield, especially if any of the people staying wish to partake in any flying or trial lessons on any type of light aircraft.
Our visit to Shobdon
The caravan and owner Mike were lovely. However the site manager was very unfriendly and aggressive when approached and made us feel as if we were nothing more than an unwanted inconvenience which made us feel very unwanted. This was a shame as it affected our enjoyment of our holiday and we avoided her as much as possible. We also tried to arrange a trial flight which we paid for upfront but unfortunately did not happen and we were given the impression that this flight was never going to happen. There was always a reason such as no pilots available or too cloudy or too bumpy up in the air and phone calls were not returned. Sadly because of these experiences we will not be returning and as first time visitors to Shobdon we were hoping for a far better experience than the treatment we received. As I said Mike and his caravan were spot on and there are no issues with the caravan at all. The only suggestions we had were a visitors comment book in the caravan and information folder containing useful information such as local doctor vet hospital etc and also to keep leaflets and info on places of interest to visit.
Disappointing, misleading photos
Caravan nice and clean, position of caravan very disappointing and not as described (although after sending the owners an email, they have changed wording on photo) But the caravan looks out to another caravan and the airfield hanger and not the airfield itself. The photos are very deceptive and it is surrounded by other caravans, one opposite and one directly next to it, no privacy,no view. Very disappointed, also much more money than the caravan next door, they had a three bedroom caravan identical to ours and paid £50 less. There are better ones on park owned by airfield which cost alot less.
Perfectly placed for days out, clean, quiet and friendly, hope to stay here again!
If you love aviation go here! An unusual setting but all the more intetesting for that. A cafe on site serves excellent meals if you can't be bothered cooking. At the heart of beautiful countryside, many places of interest on the doorstep. I would gladly stay here again!
Clean and comfy, very quiet in the evenings, lots to do
A clean and comfy caravan situated very close to a hanger. Great fun for children to watch all the planes and helicopters performing!
The Sunday lunch available at the 'club' is very good and exceptional value.
There is lots to see and do all within a short drive of the airfield.
We plan to visit again later in the year.
From the Owner
“Shobdon is a super, interesting place to stay. The aero club is fun and welcoming and not at all stuffy. All sorts of people congregate there from all walks of life and from all over the world. It has a sunny aspect so almost always feels warm. All costs are included - gas, electricity and linen - there is a good laundry room on site and we've tried to include everything you will need for a fully self catering break - or use the café - it's popular because it's good and open every day.”
