Sturminster Newton Hot Air Balloon Rides


Nestled in central Dorset, Sturminster Newton is our beautiful back-up launch site for our main Dorset balloon ride location in Folke.

Your flight from Folke Golf Centre may be moved here on the day, dependent on flying conditions.


From Sturminster Newton, head South on Bridge Street B3092 and at the T-junction, turn right onto the A357 signposted for Lydlinch and Stalbridge. After less than one mile, turn left on Puxey Lane and then after another half a mile, take the first left up to Puxey Farm.

Follow the track all the way past the buildings on your right and where the track splits three ways, turn left and follow the track around the side of the barn on the left. Park behind the barn, making sure not to block any access.

Your pilot and crew will meet you there.
