Broadrake Bunkbarn & Workshops
Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleton, LA6 3AX, Yorkshire and The Humber
Broadrake Bunkbarn is set in the Ribblehead Valley and makes for a fantastic location to get away from the city lights and under star-filled skies.
You’ll receive a warm welcome from your hosts Rachel and Mike Benson who offer comfortable accommodation and excellent amenities. By day explore the surrounding area including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct and by night stare up in wonder at the Milky Way arching across the sky from one horizon to the other.
This isn’t an official stargazing event as such although it is possible you might be sharing the venue with astronomers or astrophotographers! It is however a great excuse to get out and about in fantastic countryside and in a truly wonderful dark sky location. Take a pair of binoculars or a telescope if you have one as well as plenty of warm clothes. Special rates offered for weekend breaks with flexible booking dates to take account of the weather.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 17/11/2017
