Our Dark Skies Autumn Offer

Our Dark Skies Autumn Offer

The season is on the turn, the children are all back to school, and the nights are starting to gradually draw in. Which can only mean one thing: it’s time for us to share our “Dark Skies Autumn Offer” with you! 

We were delighted to see that Poppit Sands, our nearest sandy beach, is one of the 4 new sites in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which has been officially designated as a Dark Sky Area.

“New spectacular stargazing sites perfect for astronomy and free from the worst effects of urban light pollution have been identified across the UK and are announced” said The Science & Technologies Facilities Council. Poppit Sands has been classified as one of the ““Milky Way” sites. At these sites the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye. They are much darker sites found only in more rural areas.”

There is something almost other-worldly about star-gazing and enjoying the night skies here in West Wales against the backdrop of the Preseli Hills, the ancient monuments, and the majestic coastline of Cardigan Bay.

Whether you are a star-gazing enthusiast, or a budding night-sky photographer – our Dark Skies Autumn Special Offer is the perfect way to indulge your hobbies, AND take advantage of our latest seasonal holiday offer :
