The Belton Woods Hotel in Grantham

The Belton Woods Hotel in Grantham

We use Belton Woods, a gorgeous lakeside hotel set in 475 acres of tranquil Lincolnshire countryside, as an alternative launch site to Langar Hall when we have easterly winds. From Langar, these winds would take us straight to East Midland’s air-space, which is why we switch to launching from Belton Woods. On returning, we fly back into The Vale of Belvoir.

Rides can be booked specifically from Belton Woods by calling us on 01949 877566 or contacting us here.

Established in 1991,the outstanding 475 acre resort complex, consists of two Championship golf courses, Lakes par 72 and Woodside par 73, and is complemented by a nine-hole par 3 course. With its excellent 4-star, 96 room hotel facility and many woodland lodges, Belton Woods has matured into one of the premier golf resorts in Lincolnshire.

The Launch site is positioned in a sheltered field on the left hand side of the drive which sweeps up to the front of the hotel. You can usually see us setting up as you pass through the gates. Parking can be found in the main car park near reception. There is a short walk back along a path through the trees by the Pro shop to the launch site. The resort is set within 475 acres of the most incredible rolling countryside. The wild aspect of the area is undoubtedly beautiful, especially when contrasted with the incredibly well-manicured lawns of the golf course.

Barn Owl in flightWith plenty of Birdlife spotted in the area, including Buzzards, Barn Owls, Canadian Geese and Sparrow Hawks this is an ideal place to begin your flight.

As you float up and up over the three golf courses and magnificent club house, almost everyone stops to look up and wave. It really is rather majestic. During the flight you can expect to see many wonderful places and things:
