Wigglesworth House and Cottages are Dark Sky Friendly, this means that we have attended a training workshop run by the AONB and local astronomer, are proactively reducing light pollution at our business, are flexible with guests wishing to star gaze, and can provide information about star gazing in the North Yorkshire area. It’s a great opportunity to star gaze, enjoying the natural beauty of the night skies and stars, unaffected by artificial lights of the cities and towns.

Wigglesworth House and Cottages are Dark Sky Friendly and offer a dark Sky Welcome Pack

Your Dark Skies pack...

Each cottage has a Dark Skies Pack, which includes:

  • Star Charts.
  • Books and other Literature on Star Gazing.
  • Advice on Apps and Useful websites.
  • Information on Events in the area.
  • Binoculars.
  • Headlamps with Red Lights.

The Forest of Bowland and The Yorkshire Dales are both a stargazers Paradise.
There are four Dark Sky Discovery Sites in Bowland and four in the Dales, two of which are 10 mins from us another 20 mins away, and more within an hour.

Many of which hold regular events for all the family.
