Two 750 metres grass runways. Delightful green-field aerodrome. Visited recently to pick-up some friends who live locally. Delightful spot, very friendly but with planning restrictions so one does need to call ahead to check that you can arrive on a given day. I went on a damp grey Sunday so there was no problem. There were a couple of locals fettling aeroplanes in the hangar otherwise it was deserted so fill-in the movements log and leave a tenner. I am not clear whether there is catering on livelier days. There is a cheese factory and a brewery on site. What's not to like? No radio so make traffic calls on Wattisham. Various glider fields to avoid on the way in. Lovely spot.

Extremely odd that they don’t allow visits by single seater aircraft.

I think that could well be to do with the planning restrictions @joe-fbs mentioned.

I've only been in there twice to pick up and drop off Keef on what was his last flight (to Glenforsa). I seem to recall that they have a ban on anything above 200 HP so I didn't let on that the TB20 is 250?HP. A delightful little airfield.
