As Dark Skies Friendly accommodation we try and make it as easy as possible for you plan and make the most of your stay in a dark skies area. We aim to go that extra mile by offering equipment, advice and information on activities and facilities for star gazing in the North York Moors National Park. We even have a number of camping chairs (with cup holders), binoculars, warm blankets and flasks for hot drinks that you can borrow at no extra cost whilst staying with us. This means you can relax and keep warm whilst looking at the stars.
