BALLOON FLIGHTS NEAR POOLEY BRIDGE
The pretty tourist village of Pooley Bridge sits quietly at the northern end of Ullswater, alongside the River Eamont. Taking its name from a large pool in the river, it roughly means ‘The Hill by the Pool’. The second part of the name was added upon the addition of the bridge in 1800.
The closest launch site is Dalemain for flights over the northern part of the Lake District and the shimmering Ullswater. Or if you prefer, you can opt for a hot air balloon ride over Windermere to see the southern side of the Lake District!
