Stow-on-the-Wold, 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 small market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is located to the north east of both Cirencester and Cheltenham. It is situated on a hill (700ft) in the Cotswolds alongside the Fosse Way (A429) at the junction with other major and minor roads. From the hilltop and hills to the north-west flow several streams which, to the east join the River Evenglade and to the west join the River Windrush at Bourton-on-the-Water. There are some battle sites nearby and within the town are many medieval buildings of the distinctive local yellow Cotswold stone.
