My daughter stayed here for a 5 day gliding scholarship. The staff were very friendly and happy to show the whole family around and explained about meals and facilities etc. The accommodation was basic but very adequate and clean and we felt happy leaving her there. The weather wasn’t the kindest but my daughter had a very enjoyable week. The gliding instructors did their very best to get as much flying time in as possible. It was a great experience for her.

What a great time! My 14yr old son went there with a couple of others from his air cadets and stayed for 5 days. The weather was perfect which helps and the people there were very friendly and open making us feel really welcome and part of their group. Ignore what others may review negatively. Don't be surprised if the members talk about gliding as it is their passion! The bar is great with lovely guest ales and John who runs it was really nice. Try the home cooked food its properly traditional. Yes the place is basic but that really is part of the charm. My son spent 5 full days gliding and the members took time to teach him and this was the first time he had stayed on his own away from home so he was a little nervous but within 10 minutes and a very nice steak he was totally settled in. I can guarantee we will be going back there as often as possible

Do not even think about learning to fly at this place..... The worse customer service that I have ever experienced in my life. This place is full of grumpy old men and woman who think they are Gods gift to Aviation! They are only interested in their little club of friends and the only reason they advertise for New Members is for you to subsidise their little group. They seem to think that they are above all other beings and pilots because they fly from a ridge in Derbyshire. They are in fact a bunch of morons and you should not even consider this place if you are looking for a place to learn to fly gliders. They are rude and arrogant, and elitist for some unknown reason, known only to themselves. Maybe they are all in the Freemasons or something! Go to Husbands Bosworth... a real Gliding Club. You have been warned!

We watched the gliders taking off & landing. A thrilling experience! The countryside is spectacular & the setting for this sport is ideal. I noticed many walks around this location & will make a beeline for this place in the near future. Can recommend to families as a good way to spend fruitful time. Good weather is a must.

If BennyLongEaton had half an hour, then he should be aware that a 30 minute Trial Lesson flight in a powered aircraft is £121 (Manchester flight Training School) I guess his expectations were a little too high. Sounds like he went on a members "Bad Hair Day" as my own experience - and of others looking at the reviews - has been nothing but positive
