Frequent sailings from Bideford Quay and Ilfracombe Harbour in the summertime and winter helicopter service from Hartland Heliport makes this amazing stargazing location relatively accessible! There is no street lighting and electricity is turned off at midnight! Seeing the Perseids meteor shower in August (if it coincides with a new moon) from here would be awesome!
