Stargazing-at-Northumberland National Park

Northumberland National Park has Dark Sky status, meaning it is one of the best places to see the night sky. Yethouse is only a 30 minutes from the park. It is a truly awe inspiring sight to look at this universe in complete quiet and appreciate just how vast it is. You can do this under your own steam or get a real buzz and attend a lecture at the Kielder Observatory.  The best time to see the sky is when its cold and crisp – no cloud.  Weekend breaks are avail for 2 or 3 nights for up to 8 people in Jan/Feb starting from £272.
