Why stay here ...
Popham Airfield CL is in the heart of the North Hampshire countryside close to the A303 and M3 Junction 7 and the A34, easily accessible from all directions. Just 40 minutes to Southampton or Portsmouth ferries, 15 minutes to Winchester and 1 hour to London. Micheldever station is just one mile away from the site with trains to London and the South coast.
The pitches are backing onto woodland to the north of the airfield which is active 364 days of the year from 08:30 until 20:00. These are grass pitches with slight inclines and with plenty of space to roam around the airfield.
Popham has two grass runways of 900 metres should you friends want to fly in and we are home to more than 100 aircraft and two flying schools with trial flights available.
Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and there are a few safety rules offered to guests which can be downloaded from our website just to keep you safe. This document also has site security information you will need if you arrive after 6pm. Popham pilots are a friendly bunch and will be happy to show you round their aircraft if you ask first.
Airfields are not the quietest places in the world but there is no night flying and the CL location is in the quietest part of the estate and tucked away from the A303 traffic. A number of events take place at Popham which means we are often fully to capacity, check our website for events before booking.
Nearby ... Bombay Sapphire Gin factory is 5 miles away and there is a bus service from Micheldever for the tour, Blackwood Forest centre is 2 miles away with woodland walks, Highclear Castle (Downton) is 12 miles to the north. The Roman town ruins and amphitheatre at Silchester is 18 miles to the north to explore. The south downs and the south coast are also easy to access from Popham.
We hope you enjoy a memorable stay at Popham.
