Dark Sky Stargazing

Harris Milky Way

You can enjoy the beautiful landscapes by day and discover the dark starry skies by night.

The night skies over Bowland have recently been recognized as some of the darkest in England and granted official status as Dark Sky Discovery Sites.

Eldroth House Holiday Cottages has been accredited as a Dark Sky Friendly Business:  this means that after attending a training workshop run by the AONB and local astronomer Robert Ince, we proactivley reduce light pollution at Eldroth House, we’re flexible with guests wishing to star gaze, and we can provide information about star gazing in the area.

There’s some fantastic resources to help identify the best times to see the stars and to keep up to date with local events.
