Balloon Rides Over Ullswater

champagne seven day anytime ballooning

Epic. Inspiring. Glorious. And simply unforgettable…

Embrace the breeze at the Dalemain Mansion and Estate, a truly spectacular start to your hot air balloon flight over the awesome Lake District. As you climb higher witness the gentle landscape surrender to more dramatic scenery as you drift gently on the wind over some of the country’s most incredible natural beauty.

As your memory making escape begins, scan down for a view of Pooley Bridge, which takes its name from the 16th century crossing that spans the River Eamont on the northern tip of Ullswater, not too far from your ballooning launch site. In its heyday, Pooley Bridge was an important fish trading area. Be sure to bring your camera as there will be photo opportunities in every direction for the duration of the flight – some below you as you cruise over Ullswater, a magnificent body of water popular with boats and tourists taking a steamer tour of the lake.

After nearly an hour ballooning, your pilot will have decided where is the best place to land. Your support crew will collect you and return you back to the Dalemain Estate. Depending on whether you’re flying in the morning of afternoon, you should definitely take some time to have some tea and scones and take some time to explore this gorgeous mansion and beautiful grounds. With so much to do in the Lake District, why not make your balloon flight part of an unforgettable break in this truly magical part of the country?
