Based in the medieval village of Dunster, the Yarn Market Hotel has a 2 night/3 day residential break with Dark Skies activities.

Dark Skies of Exmoor - Stargazing break
The Yarn Market Hotel in Dunster, based within Exmoor National Park, Europe’s first designated Dark Skies Reserve, is hosting an Autumn Stargazing weekend. The break is on a full board basis and includes Sunday lunch. A programme of activities takes place over the weekend, led by expert Bob Mizon, FRAS, who will provide fascinating talks and attend the evening stargazing sessions. If the weather should not be perfect to offer clear skies on any evening an alternative programme will be in place. The weekend is within Exmoor National Park’s Dark Skies Festival period, now in its 6th year, which includes many other astronomy themed events in the area, if guests wish to extend their stay. The break is suitable for anyone with an interest in astronomy, at any level of experience. Young enthusiasts are also encouraged and there is a discount of 50% for under 20’s sharing a room with adults.
