Where have you been? What have you seen?
By Fellsteruk
Had a free afternoon on Sunday, the weather was starting to clear up and the cold front kept moving south so it was north or bust the circuit.

I discovered Eshott by accident but they were open and welcomed my PPR. Headed up and an hour and a half later arrived, was very quiet but two good hard runways and a soggy grass runway, almost lost a boot walking across that lol.

It was getting close to sunset, as I walked to the Office I could smell something Smokey in the air, they only had a log burner going inside and it smelt amazing.

Cafe was closed but the staff very nice, had a brief chat but the place just felt so cozy and welcoming, really wanted to stay for longer but I had to get back.

Defo going on the list for a summer visit, after all, I have to sample the cake!

Also the go kart track may be open then :cyclopsani:

Where is the pub/b&b within walking distance?
I phoned Eshott and they seemed to think there was nothing walkable from the airfield for lunch. I did a bit of digging and found the CrazyHorse Bar amd Sallon which was about 15 minutes walk away located within a caravan park. The problem was it involved a walk along the side of the A1 which had no pavement and was a bit dangerous.

The Northumberland Arms looks to be just a 2 mile walk from the airfield. I am going to give it a bash during the summer.
Eshott is a firm favourite of mine having landed there on my PPL cross country flight where I recieved a warm welcome from the locals.
