Welcome to a collection of my thoughts

Mount Pleasant is the perfect Doncaster wedding venue.

Yorkshire is a large and varied county. Varied landscapes, towns and regional dialects. Perhaps the quietest of the different regions of Yorkshire is South Yorkshire. Smaller than West Yorkshire with its commercial and vibrant capital city, Leeds. More densely populated and diverse than the quaint and flamboyant towns in North Yorkshire. South Yorkshire has some of the most deprived areas within the county. And yet the people of Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster are never too far away from vibrance, beauty and culture. Each town has its own identity and is surrounded by alluring countryside. Whether that be parks, forests, rivers, lakes or even the Peak District; South Yorkshire has its own (quieter) charm. South Yorkshire also has a plethora of wedding venues, from modern, city venues to rustic and charming barns. It is whilst searching amongst wedding venues that you should come across Mount Pleasant Hotel by Best Western Premier.  Positioned on the Great North Road (DN11 0HW) close to Rossington, Mount Pleasant Hotel is a 4-star hotel with an on-site golf course, spa and massage facilities, a bridal suite and an outdoor ceremony area.
