Hot air balloon flights from Stow-on-the-Wold over Gloucestershire

Think Cotswolds, think Stow-on-the-Wold. It’s one of those picture-book locations that is just so Cotswolds!

Wyck Hill House certainly lives up to its setting – it’s a beautiful Cotswold stone building, set in stunning grounds, just on the doorstep of Stow-on-the-Wold.

If you’ve come to the Cotswolds to do some proper sightseeing – this is the place to do it from. And this is a great flight to choose. There’s only one problem…

With stunning views through 360 degrees, where do you look? There is just so much to see. It really is one of those flights that get passengers oohing and ahing at five second intervals. So while we pop open the champagne, you just do your best to take it all in.

Upper Swell, The Slaughters, Bourton-on-the-Water... so many of the ‘must-see’ Cotswold attractions are on view from a hot air balloon flight from Wyck Hill.

There isn’t any right or wrong route on this flight. We can go where the wind takes us – every view is worth seeing, every new village or town is going to be someone’s favourite.

The landscape is distinctively ‘Cotswoldy’ too of course. You’ll see rolling farmland, gentle hills and – lots of greens and yellows – Cotswold countryside and soft Cotswold stone.

“Taking off from Wyck Hill puts you right in the heart of the Cotswolds, so every direction you look is met with stunning landscapes and jaw dropping vistas. With the beautiful villages and Cotswold countryside all around, a balloon flight with Cotswold Balloon Safaris is the ideal gift, guaranteed to bring a smile and deliver happy memories which will last a lifetime.” Captain Mike.
