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 !
village of Ollerton, south west of Boughton
and 7 miles from Tuxford is ideally situated
on the edge of Sherwood Forest and has the
only working Mill in Nottinghamshire. From
the Visitor Centre can be seen some splendid
views down the valley of the river Maun.
South of Ollerton, off the A614 lies Rufford
Country Park whilst to the east is situated
the Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre. The Hamlyn
Lodge Cottage Industry lies to the north
and Sherwood Forestís Visitor Centre and
Country Park lies less than 2 miles to the
west across the A614. If youíre planning
a holiday, or even just a day-out in or
near Sherwood Forest then consider including
a Hot Air Balloon Ride in your schedule.
Great fun !!!
