Cotgrove, Nottinghamshire

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 !

Cotgrove is a small town in the borough of Rushcliffe in south Nottinghamshire. It is located to the west of the A46 and south east of Nottingham City Airport and Bassingfield with its numerous camping areas to the north. It is approximately 2.5 miles east West Bridgeford and 3miles north of Keyworth. and Stanton-on-the-wolds. Cotgrove, like many of the villages which lie in the Vale of Belvoir to the east, is mainly reached by minor roads joining either the A46, A52 or A606. Be aware that Hot Air Balloons are subject to restrictions in the areas around airports and airfields. (Not a bad idea, as the pilot has only very limited control over the direction of the balloon !) Residents of Cotgrove may therefore have to drive a short distance away to a hot air balloon take-off point.
