Yate, 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 South Gloucestershire town of Yate is situated south of Dursley, south-east of Malmesbury (Wiltshire) and north-east of Bristol. It is located close to the Cotswold Hills and has several streams to the south and north flowing to the west and eventually to the River Severn. The A342 passes through the town centre and through its neighbouring town of Chipping Sodbury. Few villages lie in the surrounding area to the north of Yate but the village of Nibley lies less than a mile to the west whilst the village of Westerleigh is situated to the south.
