It boasts a comfortable clubhouse and bar, as well as a well-stocked shop and a knowledgeable professional, Steve Russell.

Astronomy and stargazing
We're lucky enough to have fairly dark skies here on a clear night, so Colemore Farm makes an ideal place for beginners and intermediate stargazers. We can lend you good binoculars and by prior arrangement we can set up our Meade ETX-125 telescope.
