This was a 2017 Christmas Present for my wife. I had booked her for 2 launches in a glider. The 2 launches - take-offs, were in the summer of 2018. She was thrilled to bits. The weather was fantastic with a clear blue sky. The photographs taken from the glider are amazing. For that special occasion this makes a memorable occasion.

We went as a party of eight plus some spectators. The staff took the time to make us feel very welcome and went through everything we needed to know. The process and order of the flights went extremely well and we were all delighted with the outcome. A nice friendly laid-back atmosphere. A lovely activity and thoroughly recommended to one and all.

Good friendly gliding club. Birthday voucher used at this venue. Unfortunately no thermals for proper gliding. Good instructor.

Really disappointed with this. Paid for 2 flights for my partner’s birthday. It was forecast to rain so we were advised to come earlier than our booked time, which we did, only to be told the “boss” had just gone for a flight. Considering they told us to come at 3pm I’m not sure why he had taken the plane at this time! We waited half an hour later until he landed and grey clouds came over. They told us we had brought bad weather with us! They said to my partner that since he had 2 flights booked, they would do 1 flight of 20mins instead of 2 flights 10mins each, which was fine. They took my partner for a flight but landed it again 10 seconds later because of rain. Instead of waiting for the rain to clear (which we suggested) they proceeded to launch another flight so they were in the air again for only a few mins! No apology for the short flights. Considering the price that was paid for this it was very disappointing and a waste of money!

My partner bought me 4 flights for my birthday and it was a great experience - the take off alone is worth the trip. The facilities are a little sparse but you don't spend too long there so it's not too much of an issue.
