Farnham hot air balloon launch site

This hot air balloon launch site is part of our South Downs West area and is usually used when the wind is from the North. Also used for morning flights. The alternative evening sites are at Chichester, West Meon, Petersfield or Fernhurst.

It is on the very northern edge of the South Downs National Park affording terrific views from our hot air balloon of the areas of heath land to the south of the venue.

The site is on Groomes Farm just south of Alice Holt Forest. The entrance is by the Grundon Frith End Sand Pit on the A325 North of the Country Market. Post code is GU35 0QR but do not blindly follow this as we need to meet at the entry gates to the sand pit not at Groomes Hotel.

If you live outside the area and are planning a trip to the South Downs National Park we recommend Groomes as a base. That is if you prefer five star accommodation and a secluded location.

How much does a balloon flight cost.
