At the beginning of this year we announced a brand new hot air balloon launch site for Doncaster at Cusworth Hall. Well, it would seem our lovely passengers are keen to experience the city and surrounding area from the sky, so we’ve added another new site for Yorkshire folk, or those further afield, to fly from!
You can now book a flight with pilot Chris Oxby from the beautiful Best Western Mount Pleasant Hotel. The charming AA 4 star hotel is set in 100 acres of woodland that homes courtyards, fountains and even its own stream. Balloon rides from Mount Pleasant let you explore the south side of Doncaster from a totally unique perspective offering a mixture of suburban chimney tops and countryside woodland.
The hotel is a family affair and has been owned by the McIlroys for three generations since 1938. Priding itself on a personal approach, the hotel will deliver the perfect spot for starting your airborne adventure in Doncaster.
Richard Tyas, General Manager of the hotel, said: “We’re very much forward to working with Virgin Balloon Flights and adding to our unique offering at Mount Pleasant as a hot air balloon launch site.”
