February 9th 2019
Do you love gazing up at the star filled night skies? But are unsure what exactly you are looking at. Help is at hand. Dale House Barn, tucked away in The Forest of Bowland ANOB in Lancashire, can organise star gazing evenings with an astronomer.
Why not organise a weekend with a difference for your friends and family? Stay in the heart of a forest in this old stone barn which sleeps groups of 4 -14. Relax, walk, cycle, fish, climb or explore the forest during the day. Then when the sun sets and the skies darken immerse yourself in things celestial and learn all about the stars and planets above you.
And if you are too mesmerized to self cater, Dominique your host is a professional chef and can prepare meals for your group.
