The Fontmell and Compton Abbas Airfield have joining together to bring you a brand new experience. Eat-Sleep-Fly is perfect for those who live a little further away or want to celebrate something special. The experience starts with a sumptuous 3-course dinner in The Fontmell’s restaurant followed by a relaxing nights sleep in one of their luxurious double rooms. Wake up to a lovely breakfast and then make your way up to Compton Abbas Airfield for a once in a lifetime flight in an aircraft of your choice from our pristine fleet over some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK. A really special treat.

I have flown into Compton Abbas on many occasions and find all of the staff to be of a very welcoming and friendly towards visiting pilots and guests. Clive and Margaret go out of their way to ensure your visit is a good one.
Beautiful scenery surrounds Compton Abbas with stunning escarpments carved into the countryside local to the airfield. Sited on top of a hill 800 odd feet above sea level, take offs on runway 26 are stunning as the land disappears dramatically below you as you climb out over Spread Eagle. The restaurant is top notch too! Great food and drink. There is a nice patio outside only a few yards from the runway affording an uninhibited view of all arrivals and departures. I love the place!
