Hot Air Balloon Flight from Cornwall

6 reviews
Hit new heights on this spectacular 1-hour hot air balloon flight over Cornwall. Swoop over the rugged beaches, sea cliffs and picturesque villages of England’s southwestern tip, and marvel over the Cornish countryside from your unique aerial vantage point. Sip complimentary Champagne as you float along the coast and enjoy live commentary from your pilot along the way. Best of all: balloon rides take place at dawn or dusk, so you’ll also experience the magic of a Cornish sunrise or sunset.

Really enjoyed our visit - well organised and interesting caverns, much larger than we expected with lots of information. It felt very COVID secure and the woodland walk afterwards was also enjoyable.

We spent about an hour and half with kids (7 and 4). They enjoyed the caverns but were quite quick. The woodland path was also fun even though it was wet and muddy.

This is a fantastic place! We have 2 children, a 10 year old and a 6 year old and they absolutely loved it, we did the woodland walk 1st and then the cave tour. So well organised and safe. So much thought has gone into making it a magical time. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable.

Myself and my partner decided to visit the Caverns after seeing them signposted quite a few times, and we weren’t disappointed. Tucked out the way in the middle of beautiful Cornish countryside, lies the Carnglaze Caverns, with a large car park, lots of room to allow for distancing and a fantastic setting for all ages. We are down from Norfolk for the week and are staying just a stone throw away from the caverns; in Dobwalls, so it was only 10 minutes drive away and just off the A38. We did the walk first and were very impressed how well maintained it all was, as the attraction is family ran and owned, lots of hard work and love goes into making sure it’s as good as it can be. The walk offers a nice view of the forests and valleys below, aswell as a sweet hideout for children. There is also a viewing point across the glamorous fields overlooking the small village of St Neot. The caves are well maintained and offer a fantastic outlet to education for people of any age generation. There are information points dotted around the attraction and you are provided a hard hat per person aswell as a Handy map so you can work your way around the attraction. We were impressed to see they also host concerts in the first part of the cave along with numerous weddings also, furthermore highlighting the true natural beauty. The caves are great, you learn a lot and avoid any flash photography as the caves are home to several species of bats, however you are still able to take good photos without flash and a slower shutter speed. The mother lake offers two light switches which you can turn on to see it better, this was really impressive and the quietness was eerie but very calming at the same time. My partner and me were very lucky in the fact we were the only ones visiting at the time (just before we arrived a large party had left) We spent a good 45 mins/1 hour at the attraction and upon leaving we had the pleasure of talking to the owner, an extremely kind and knowledgeable lady who has lived at the Caverns for 20+ years. So we were able to ask her any questions we had directly and we had a lovely chat for the best part of half an hour; she was happy to answer any questions we had and really opened us up to the history of the caverns, when they stopped using it for mining and the surrounding countryside and cultures. It was great to get such an intellectual insight into the past and even a sighter into what it’s like in maintaining and running an attraction as stunning as the caverns. All in all, it was a great experience and an honour to visit. I would like to highlight the true kindness and gratitude from the owner who’s name we didn’t catch, but it was well worth the visit and would definitely recommend.

Went here on a wet Cornish day. Hannah (young girl in reception) was informative, knowledgeable and friendly. I had a left a message the evening before to see if there was any availability for the next day. Hannah rang me early that morning to confirm places were available and took payment over the phone (receipt was ready for us on arrival). Slate mine was a different place to visit and information inside gave an insight into working in a mine and its history etc. Certainly worth the £8 per adult. Liked the woodland walk which was quite high in places but was great for those autumnal shots (but can't upload any as they're over 5mb).
