Ashmore, Near Salisbury, Wiltshire SP5 5AP


We are on the border of Dorset and Wiltshire. A Sat Nav will find us if you pop in the postcode! We are 4 miles south of Shaftesbury.

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 regret that we are unable to accept dogs in the public areas at the airfield. 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.
