Best Coolstays for Stargazing

Best Coolstays for Stargazing

22nd January 2024

Dark nights and clear frosty air make winter the best time for stargazing. So find some snuggly blankets, make a thermos of (boozy) hot chocolate and check out these properties in the UK and beyond in top stargazing locations.  

And this February you can join a dark sky walk or go to a star party as part of the Dark Skies Festival held around the country. Look out for the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales event from 9th-25th Feb and the South Downs on 10th-18th Feb.
