Uncover astral beauty at the South Downs Dark Skies Festival
November 17th 2020
A two week event starting on the 12th of February in the extraordinarily gorgeous South Downs. Wetherdown Lodge and Campsite is the perfect place to enjoy the wonder of the dark skies.
During the two-week South Downs Dark Skies Festival there will be talks and tips on how you can experience the wonderful starscapes in the South Downs National Park for yourself, where to go and what to do to make the most of your night adventure. Learn about the nocturnal wildlife and what you can do to help it, and how to play your part in safeguarding our dark night skies for the next generation to enjoy in the same way as we can.
An important part of the 2021 festival is an astrophotography competition, launching at the end of October 2020 and judged in time for the winning shots to be shown throughout the Festival Fortnight in February. So cameras at the ready!

August 16th 2019
Whether as a stop-over for those walking the South Downs Way or a venue for families and friends reunions, the Lodge offers simple but comfortable accommodation.
Wetherdown Lodge, once the home of Royal Navy trainees, has been completely renovated and is now model in how to use less energy and cut carbon emissions. The heating and hot water is provided by a biomass boiler, which uses locally sourced wood, whilst the warmth is retained by wool fleece insulation. It has triple glazed windows, solar roof tiles and natural maromoleum flooring.
Wetherdown Lodge is part of the Sustainability Centre which provides courses and events about environmental awareness and low impact living.
