Devon

Mid Devon

In Mid Devon we fly from the busy market town of Tiverton. Founded early in the Saxon settlement, the town is intersected by two twisting rivers – The Exe and The Lowman. Tiverton is also the home of Tiverton Castle, dating back to 1106, which can be seen shortly after takeoff! The area of outstanding natural beauty offers views of unspoiled countryside and traditionally charming British villages.

In Devonshire’s heartland you can often enjoy views of both Dartmoor and Exmoor – the breathtaking expanse between the two national parks measures at an enormous 353 square miles. You may also see the striking Blackdown Hills or the major river valleys of Otter, Exe, Culm and Yarty. When flying in Mid Devon we often float over local landmarks such as the Wellington Monument, Castle Neroche and Hembury Hill Fort to name just a few.

East Devon

In East Devon we fly from the Devonshire Capital – Exeter. It is a vibrant cathedral city famous for its culture with a rich heritage and historic quayside. East Devon is where life is enjoyed at a leisurely pace, and what better way to take it all in than in a hot air balloon!

When flying from East Devon you could see breath taking landscape such as the Wooded Combes, vast areas of heath land, breath-taking cliffs and dramatic hilltops. You can often see the notably spectacular Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, stretching from Exmouth to Studland, or even the hidden treasure of Axe Valley in the South East corner of the county.

South Devon

In South Devon we fly from Ivybride, 9 miles to the East of Plymouth at the southern extremity of Dartmoor National Park in the South Hams area. It has a timeless landscape packed with rolling hills, twisting river estuaries and 60 miles of dramatic coastline. No wonder it is a recognised area of outstanding natural beauty!

South Devon has one of the mildest climates in the country, and the name “Hamme’s” translates to “sheltered place”. During your flight you may be able to see the dominating granite slopes of Dartmoor, ancient woodland, mythical stone circles, notable tors and historic castles. You could have clear views across Lyme and Tor bays, Plymouth Sound and even down into Cornwall.
