The walk to the aeroplanes is not a few minutes it’s a good half an hour walk 😡
When you were expecting a short walk it was annoying.
The park is only suitable for very young children.
The tea room is SO expensive and had no connection with a dairy.
We travelled a long way to get their and won’t be going back.

Managed three visits so far this year. Purely for watching the planes.

All three visits were in good weather; one rescheduled due to very hot day couple of weeks ago. Pleased to have choice of parking spaces in Marston Green end carpark. Seating area at runway threshold reasonably tidy although still a litter problem, probably from night visitors who can't see the bins, lol! Perhaps some stickers on bin covers would emphasise the need to use them.

Better place for spotting than official area at airport, due to increased police presence there and the airport not encouraging spotters, only "tolerating" them.

Great day out! Small park near the car park and a farm to walk around with a lovely tea room. Toilets in the farm were clean. 10 minute walk to Birmingham runway where you can biew the planes taking off and landing. Here there are plenty of Benches. Will definatley be back.

I really like going there as a family but there are too much dogs , I think they should assign one area of the parks to be dog free
And they should have toilets as people travel far to get there and have to go all the way back home just to go to the toilets

My first plane spotting trip this year. Chose a very hot day. Area was very tidy and everyone seated seemed to be socially distancing. One thing that did please me is the removal of the open top rubbish bins. Glad someone has realised the damage that can be done to aircraft engines if the rubbish blows onto the airport. Well done!

Cannot agree with previous review about litter everywhere. Certainly the airport/Marston Green end is very tidy.

Absolute hovel... Rubbish, nappies etc, strewn across the park on a daily basis. There's rangers there, but they only deal with the cute animals, not the ones who dont take their rubbish home. Complain about it on social media and they block you.
It's an embarrassment taking friends over there.

Do yourself a favour and nip over the Coventry road and visit Elmdon Park in Solihull.... You probably won't catch half the diseases you will in Sheldon Country Park

Wanted to go somewhere where I could meet my daughter and granddaughters and still able to distance comfortably locally as it was a beautiful sunny day. This was just the place. Although the farm was closed the horses and sheep were in the field. Obviously cafe and toilets are closed and so were the children's playground. We walked to the airport, not far, and saw a plane take off and another land.
The dog loved it, just like being in the countryside. After the walk we got chairs and food out of the car and had a picnic in the adjacent field while maintaining social distancing of course.
Luckily none of us needed the toilet (except the dog) or I'd don't know what we'd have done.

I have visited the farm twice in the last month, and must tell you I'm extremely impressed with the lovely condition of the animals and their living arrangements.
I can't believe it is all free. Amazing afternoon out for local residents.

I think it's a wonderful facility and one that my native Coventry is sadly lacking.
We particularly fell in love with the pigs They are so friendly, and love a back scratch!
A wonderful days entertainment for all the family, especially if you like planes too.

Kind regards

Love taking the dog for a long, long walk here. Most people you meet are friendly, good paths, nice little small farm although can’t take dog. Understandable. Nice family friendly place to go.

We take one of our younger grandchildren to the park on regular occasions and find that it has lots for the children to see and do,there is a childrens play area which is secure and a farm where the children can see all types of farmyard animals who are well looked after by volunteers,a 15 minute walk away is one end of Birmingham Airports runway and dependant of which way the planes are taking off the planes are just above your heads which is quite an experience for adults and children alike.
