Five fabulous courses and 2 gliding clubs, perfect for a day or a few. So if your planning a weekend away with friends or a group then you've chosen well.
for golf then perhaps chose the Championship course at Minchinhampton for something serious and Painswick just for the fun and views.
Stinchcombe and Cotswold Edge are both great for a forgiving challenge (and amazing views and good clubhouses too).
Our airfield is situated on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment and overlooks the stunning river Severn valley - an ideal location for a taster flight right through to a weeks gliding holiday. You can learn from the age of 14 and qualify at 16, but just taking a flight is a memory to treasure, particularly above the Cotswold Edge.
