Look up to the skies#NlandStars

We are literally looking Up Up and Away to happier times!!

Here at GlamPods Northumberland on a clear night our Dark Sky official reading is 21.23 – what better way to watch the sky from the comfort of your own Pod surrounded by vast open space, peace and quiet.  We have available for a small hire fee, a stargazing pack containing binoculars, charts and books, gloves, fleece rugs, red torches, hot chocolate and of course the Pods have a fridge and a kettle for something warm or something chilled!

Northumberland National Park forms part of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. Unveiled in December 2013 and at 572 square miles (1,483 square kilometres) it is also Europe's largest area of protected night sky. Thanks to its pristine skies it was awarded gold tier designation by the International Dark Sky Association, making it officially the best place in England for people to go to enjoy the heavens.

Here, on a clear night, you can see millions of stars, the Milky Way and even the Andromeda Galaxy (2.5 million light years away) with the naked eye. Every night, there is something different to see, from meteor showers to the Northern lights.



We are offering a Dark Sky Evening Experience from October to March that includes 
a one night stay in our luxury ensuite Pods which include underfloor heating, made up beds, soft fluffy towels, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, TV and seating area, fully fitted kitchen and a welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and three types of cereal.  The evening includes a two hour Dark Sky presentation with our Science Presenter Liam, who is great fun and takes astronomy from the very novice to the very experienced and makes it absolutely fascinating and a little bit addictive–it really is night with a difference.  Please contact me for more details and planned dates.

Ideal for groups of friends or individuals that would like to join a group. We also have planned "Photographing the Night Sky" evenings – again, contact me below.
