If you are looking for a stargazing holiday in the UK, then take a look here at Greetham Retreat Holidays, situated in rural Lincolnshire countryside, making it the ideal place to stay and go stargazing, to experience the fabulous Dark Skies on offer.
With low light pollution, dazzling starry displays and big open skies, the Lincolnshire Wolds, which is officially appointed, as an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), offers some of the best stargazing opportunities in the UK. Also, Lincolnshire is the second largest county in England when measured by land area, but it also benefits from having the fifth lowest population density of all the counties in England, hence the low levels of light pollution. The logic is simple, the darker and clearer the night sky is, the better the opportunity for stargazing.
Here at Greetham Retreat, we can offer you a great stargazing holiday within the Lincolnshire Wolds, with five luxury self-catering holiday cottages (each sleeping from 2 to 6 guests) and an exclusive, Caravan and Motorhome club (CAMC) touring CL site with just five all weather hardstanding pitches and four acres of private natural grounds. All in an idyllic location far away from light pollution, and with no near neighbours, being well over three hundred feet above sea level. You can spend your days exploring the beauty that the local area and all that Lincolnshire has to offer, and your nights admiring the heavens and skies above. Greetham Retreat and its accommodation are also recognised, and listed on the excellent Go Stargazing website.
When staying at Greetham Retreat you will have easy access to a blanket of stars in wide-open skies. To help you get the best views we switch off all external lighting around our holiday cottages and grounds at 10pm each day. There is no nearby street lighting and no close neighbours, which means we have minimal light pollution and almost perfect dark sky conditions, meaning you can relax, lean back, and view the starry night skies with awe, enjoying the beauty of the celestial scenes above.
You should know that you can see at least ten times as many stars in the darkest areas of the country, as you can in a town or city. So, if you stay up late, when staying here at Greetham Retreat, then just look up and gaze in wonder at the UK’s and Lincolnshire’s twinkling night skies, then back to bed for a comfortable and great night’s sleep!
Just bring your binoculars, your telescope or any other equipment that you may need and view the wonders that the night skies here in Lincolnshire have to offer when staying at Greetham Retreat.
