Exmoor Stars

Exmoor National Park has been designated the first International Dark Sky Reserve in Europe!

Exmoor National Park is home to some of the darkest skies in the country so it's a great place to gaze at the stars. Good spots are Holdstone Hill, County Gate, Brendon Two Gates, Webbers Post, Anstey Gate, Haddon Hill and Wimbleball Lake.

On a clear night the night sky of Exmoor is simply stunning when many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye and even more can be discovered through a telescope or binoculars.
