3 Great Spots For Stargazing In East Yorkshire

Exploring the wonderful countryside we have on our doorstep here in East Yorkshire is always lots of fun during the day and there’s a huge amount to see and do, no matter what time of year you decide to come and see us.

But you would perhaps be doing yourself a bit of a disservice if you decided to go home again without staying up a little later than usual at least once during your trip, so you can get a feel for the region at night, as well.

Tophill Low Nature Reserve is, perhaps, one of the best places to go if you do want to do a spot of stargazing while you’re here. This 300-acre site is well away from light pollution so you’ll get some wonderful views of the sky and enjoy some well-earned peace and quiet, away from crowds that can gather during the day.

The mediaeval village of Wharram Percy, meanwhile, could be a very interesting spot to check out, both at night but also during the day. It’s now deserted and no one lives there, so you should have it all to yourself… absolutely perfect for trying to spot the Milky Way!

And then there’s Brough, which is home to its very own astronomy club, so you could see what events are taking place during your holiday and gain some expert stargazing advice while you’re at it. They have meetings and open evenings throughout the summer, so you’re sure to find something going on while you’re here.

Of course, you might find that Brough is a little too far away for you to consider tripping off to after dark… so why not stay here with us at PK Cottages and look up at the sky instead? We get some amazingly clear nights on a regular basis, so you don’t have to travel far at all to marvel at the night sky.
