Starry skyWatch the Stars Twinkle on a Cottage Holiday

As all keen stargazers know, there’s something quite romantic about looking up and seeing the stars at night. See a shooting star and the memory stays with you for years. Maybe you’re someone who knows your comets and planets too and may be even your constellations like the Plough, the North Star, the Bear and Cassiopeia!

Telescope at the Ready on a Stargazing Holiday

Whether for you star-watching is a romantic notion or a professional hobby, if you love the cosmos and the magic of twinkling stars lighting up the dark night then a stay in a holiday cottage away from light pollution or in a dark sky reserve could be perfect for you. So pack your telescope, book the right cottage and weather-conditions permitting you can look forward to a fantastic stargazing holiday.

Dark Skies for Stargazing Holidays

In the UK, the National Parks are renowned for their dark skies; make sure you book a cottage away from a town so you can enjoy looking out on an unspoilt dark sky at night. Currently there are 4 recognised Dark Sky Reserves in Britain; Exmoor National Park, the South Downs, the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia National Park.

There are also many unspoilt rural areas in Britain, as well as lots of wide open unspoilt spaces in Scotland and remote places where there is no light pollution and excellent stargazing opportunities. Stay up in some parts of Scotland and you may even see other stunning phenomena like the Northern Lights!

The cottages listed below are either in remote locations or in one of the UK’s national parks, we hope you find the perfect holiday house for your stargazing holiday.
