About Virgin Balloon Flights - Ludlow, Stokesay Court
Unspoilt and secluded, Stokesay is a magnificent late-Victorian mansion set within extensive grounds in rolling South Shropshire countryside. Taking off from a field a short distance from the house, views of the famous lawns, lake and ornate fountain beckon as you soar skywards.

I was very lucky as my flight was only two weeks after I bought my voucher. The morning was almost windless so we spent a long time over Stokesay Court, and then drifted slowly North to land after 80 mins in Craven Arms. Lindsay, our pilot, made a perfect landing in the industrial estate. It was a marvellous experience with amazing views over the Shropshire countryside and of Stokesay Castle. Getting the balloon ready and then packing it away afterwards added to the experience, which ended with Champagne. My only slight disappointment was that the wind was too weak and in the wrong direction to see Ludlow from above.

Wow! This was my fifth attempt at a flight but it was well worth the wait. The flight was so smooth with fantastic scenery and a running commentary from our pilot Russell. The landing was very good. We all had fun getting the balloon ready and putting it away after the flight. The glass of champagne was a fitting end to a superb evening.
