Rattlesden Gliding Club

If you’ve ever fancied having a go at Gliding, come to Suffolk!

We’ve teamed up with Rattlesden Gliding Club to offer our guests an exclusive short-term membership!

With breath-taking views of Suffolk as experienced only by the birds, why not combine a break here at Woodfarm Barns with the silence and tranquility of a glider flight?

See the earth from a different perspective. We know from taking off and landing during our foreign holidays, is an eye-opener. But to do this at a more peaceful and elegant pace is a real experience. Apparently. Sorry, I’m chicken!

Only 13  miles from Woodfarm

Where is it:

A bit more information ....

Rattlesden have offered our guests a winch launch package with two flights and then the chance to come back within 12 months to have another go at membership rates. All this for just £50 per person

For legal reasons you must be classified as a member to fly so the offer is for temporary membership. To return as a member a winch launch costs just £7.95 for 10 minutes

The usual club deal is for 3 months temporary membership. However, because our guests are more likely to return outside of 3 months the offer is for 3 month membership to be used within a 12 month period

NB; For obvious reasons there are height and weight restrictions - 6ft 3in & 16.5 stone

Have a look at the winch launch on their website and then click through to book it. Do let the club know when you speak to them that you are a Woodfarm Barns guest so you get the deferred membership offer
