Overview

Between the two towns of Braintree and Colchester sits the quaint town of Feering, Prested Hall, a magnificent 16th century manor sits in the heart of Feering offering a perfect backdrop for a balloon flight. With views from nearby Kelvedon and the River Blackwater as well as the Home Counties, stretching towards the outskirts of London perfect for any ages to experience.

We were very lucky in that we got to fly the first time we booked which we know isn't the case for most people! Had a evening flight, with Tim. Set off earlier then were meant to, beautiful views. Very smooth ride. Ended up near...More
