There’s something about the return of dark skies come Autumn. The crisp, cold chill in the air, the prospect of celebrations such as Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas, and, of course, the fun things that come along with them (such as spiking our hot drinks with booze).
It’s a season we can really get on board with, and it seems, the team behind Camp Katur feel exactly the same. Making the most of the colder, darker nights, Camp Katur is hosting a lovely evening of stargazing next week, allowing guests to relax under the vast night sky while enjoying a prime location near not one, but two Dark Sky Reserves.
Using its ‘Dark Sky Friendly’ status at the perfect opportunity, guests will be able to escape to the stunning North Yorkshire Estate, where they’ll be looked after by acclaimed Astronomer Richard Darn, who will take all guests through the Cosmos and introduce them to the wonders of the galaxy.
Taking place by a warming campfire, guests will be treated to a delicious dinner at The Hebridean Bar & Grill, alongside cocktails by the firepit and a night’s stay in one of Camp Katur’s incredible Hill Farm Geodomes – which boast completely transparent fronts so you can take in the private, countryside views.
Aligning with the annual Orionids Meteor Showers, the event will take place next week on October 21st, with tickets costing just £325 per Geodome (including all food and drink and the experience itself).
Guests need not worry about the weather, either, with a very special mini planetarium created on site in case of any rain showers. Find out more here, and check out our review from our latest stay at Camp Katur right here.
