Had festive afternoon tea at Eshott Airfield today. What a lovely afternoon. Food was amazing, I'm stuffed! The atmosphere was just perfect too, feel really festive. Santa arrived in an aeroplane too!

With the support of the Eshott team we hosted a corporate charity plane pull. Raising nearly £8000 for the charity Action For Children. The team were amazing making everyone welcome and engaging with the event. The lunch provided was just what we needed to replenish after the event.

Finished off with a tour of the hangars for the team.

Fantastic day out for all the family - delicious food, friendly staff and great fun every time. This was our fourth visit to the Airfield, this time for afternoon tea with Santa and we had a wonderful time, as always. The team work so hard to make sure everyone enjoys themselves (especially the little ones) and you can expect the warmest of welcomes, every time.

We had a truly magical afternoon at Eshott Airfield for their Christmas event. Santa arrived by plane followed by a beautiful afternoon tea. My children were absolutely delighted. The food was exceptional plus we have several allergies and dietary requirements and we were all very well catered for. We couldn't fault it and we are excited to hear about future events.

Myself, hubby and 3 kids attended Eshott Airfield's amazing halloween event last night! It was very well organised! Food was fantastic! And we had so much fun! Gary the ghastly ghoul 👻 made sure everyone had such a miserable time 😛 and we did some fab potion making with the amazing Wanda the witch and her sidekick Agatha 🧙‍♀️ highly recommended! We've attended a few events now at Eshott Airfield and they have all been very well organised. Well done to everyone involved! 👏 we look forward to more events in the future.

It was great to just sit and relax with a cuppa and watch the aircrafts coming and going.

With the everyday hustle of a busy city, it's nice to drive up to Eshott Airfield and unwind.

The staff are lovely and really pleasant. The lady in the cafe feels like you've known her for years and puts you at ease straight away, she comes across as a wonderful lady and I have no doubt she is.

This is now my go to place to switch off and just relax, if I feel anymore at home here I may get carried away and book a flight (even though I'm terrified of heights) 😀

Great one hour flight in the restored De Havilland Chipmunk, despite the weather being a bit blustery. Headed inland to Rothbury and the WW1 training landscape, then North to see the hillforts of the Aln and Breamish valleys and the iron age settlement at Greaves Ash before enjoying the scenery over the Ingram Valley and north of Alnwick to the coast at Dunstanburgh (with Bamburgh and Holy Island in the distance). After a chance to fly the plane down the coast to Alnmouth and Druridge Bay, a remarkably smooth return to Eshott. Can't recommend this enough; I absolutely loved it.
