The Liskeard Virgin Hot Air Balloon Flights launch site is a fantastic spot from which to explore the beauty and history of what is arguably the jewel of the West Country.
Once linked by canal to the charming coastal town of Looe, Liskeard is found draped about a gently steeped hill and flanked on all sides by beautiful, rolling Cornish countryside.
Overlooked by its own part-Norman Church of St Martin, the second largest church in the county, Liskeard is now a thriving, bustling market town.
If you are fortunate to pass low and slow over the town on your hot air balloon ride it is possible to see buildings of all styles and ages radiating out from the town’s central square.
Southwest of Liskeard lies the picturesque coastal town of Fowey, where author Daphne du Maurier, drawn to the natural beauty of the region, once lived and wrote while in a more southerly direction is found a wealth of typically quaint fishing villages such as Polperro and Looe.
Our Liskeard balloon flights launch from the stunning estate of Pentillie Castle, providing the perfect base for those wishing to traverse the wide Cornish skies.
