Ashmore, Near Salisbury, Wiltshire SP5 5AP

Please use a satnav to find us, and note that we are not in the village of Compton Abbas but on the higher Shaftesbury to Blandford road, the C13. 

Email is the preferred method of communication due to being a busy operational airfield.  Please be aware that phone calls will come through to the ‘Operations Team’ who also work the air traffic. They may be busy but will do their best to answer your queries. Thank you!

We are able to accept dogs in the Runway Cafe area only, not in the main building/cafe or patio. If you have a bicycle please come with a bike lock as we are unable to have bikes on the patio area due to the aircraft propeller wash. No picnics on any area of the airfield including the car park area due to litter damage in aircraft engines.
