European Dark Sky Reserve

Exmoor National Park has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve by the International Dark-Sky Association.

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.

Individual or group activities can take place with level hard surfaced areas for setting up your telescope that overlook the scenic lakeside with clear big sky views far from any light pollution.

Guests of Highcliffe House don’t have to travel far from the house to witness the true beauty of the clear night sky
