Nailsworth, Gloucestershire

Gliding peacefully across beautiful countryside early on a summer morning, or in the evening is an unforgettable experience. Unlike other aircraft, you can watch the hot air balloon being assembled before your eyes - just like a giant tent ! Then climb aboard and admire the view from the basket - no doors closed, or windows to sit behind, it's all out in the fresh air. Fantastic !

The town of Nailsworth, is in a valley, itself a meeting of 3 valleys leading to Horsley, Avening and Stroud. It is situated 6 miles south of Stroud on the A46 which goes through the centre of the town. Beyond, to the north of Windsoredge is Woodchester Park and Nympsfield Long Barrow located to the north west close to the B4066 from Stroud to Dursley. There are several mill ponds nearby remaining from the once related woollen mills of the area. There are two golf courses in the area one close to Amberley to the north, and the other to the east near Avening. On Nailsworth’s annual ‘Family Day’ on the playing fields some hot air balloons have been known to take off during the early evening.
