Around Shobdon

Around Shobdon there are several B&B’s in the locality where you can stay if you prefer not to spend all your time at the airfield – check and Tripadvisor etc. Details of Shobdon’s on site accommodation is here.

Shobdon village has a children’s playground and a comprehensive village store within walking distance of the airfield.

Likewise, although there is an on-site Café and bar at the airfield, you may wish to go out to some of the local pubs or restaurants.

Nearby we have:

The Bateman Arms

The Mortimer’s Cross

The Riverside

They can also provide accommodation.

A great advantage of microlight training at Shobdon Airfield is the availability of on site accommodation. At Shobdon there are several large and spacious static caravans that can be rented for any period from one night to a year at a time.

If you enrol for a course or air time package, we can arrange the accommodation for you and it will be included in the course fee (where indicated). Otherwise, the caravans are available for £40/night and sleep up to 6 persons, so you can bring the family with you.  There is a comprehensive village store, children’s playground and pub (that serves food) all within walking distance. You really can have a proper family holiday (with some flying) at Shobdon.  Please note, however, that we cannot accommodate pets at the Airfield.

The airfield café is open 7 days a week, and the airfield bar is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
