The huts sit on the Northumberland coast they are an ideal place to appreciate the darkness of the skies along the coastline.  The Northumberland Coast is one of the best locations in England for a chance of seeing the fabulous Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
The best places to star gaze on the coast (apart from being in the hot tub!) are definitely away from any light pollution. Fortunately, street lightening is limited  so it is easy to find beautifully dark spots along the coast such as the small pull-in car parks like at Boulmer, the stretch between Seahouses and Bamburgh or at Goswick. The causeway to Holy Island is a magical place and popular with stargazers though you have to be careful with tides.

Dark Skies

Enjoy sitting in the wood burning hot tub, steam rising, glass of fizz in your hand and watch the wonders of the night sky just with the naked eye.

Cosy Blankets

After your evening meal cosy up  in front of the fire pit, wrapped in a fleecy blanket and a glass of wine to enjoy the Northumberland starry skies

Binoculars

Although telescopes are the best to see the night sky, binoculars work very well and there is a pair of binoculars provided in the hut for your use

Star Gazing books

We have provided star gazing books to help you with identifying the various constellations you will see in the Northumberland Dark Skies

Beadnell Harbour is the only West facing harbour on the East coast and if you are lucky you may catch the fabulous Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights
