Orchard Lane, Goathland, YO22 5JX
The Farmhouse is blessed with beautiful night skies and we are delighted to offer our ‘Gaze & Graze’ evening combining a sumptuous outdoor dinner with an evening with your very own expert astronomer, Richard Darn.
The North York Moors National Park is one of England’s darkest areas and spectacular on clear nights! You will see up to 2,000 stars and the majestic Milky Way arching over-head together with star clusters, galaxies and spectacular shooting stars. It’s perfect for just sitting back and enjoying one of Mother Nature’s finest shows.
With clear skies the moon will be shining bright at just over three quarters for this event, and offering you the chance to study and view the beautiful mountain ranges and craters on the moon's surface through a powerful telescope.
Wrap up warm and enjoy stunning views.
