The Northumberland Dark Skies - Star Gazing At Night

If you are a nature enthusiast or fancy yourself to be a bit of an amateur astronomer or are just a person who enjoys the great outdoors then Walkmill Caravan & Camping in Northumberland is the place to visit.

Billions of shimmering stars, a plethora of planets, glowing galaxies and dazzling meteor showers are what make up our stunning Milky Way. However, there are very few in the world who can actually boast about having witnessed the magnificence of a true dark sky in all its shining glory. Much of the skies of the world are polluted and it’s often difficult to see only a few stars at night let alone any of the glowing galaxies.
Awarded the Northumberland Dark Sky Park title in December 2013 by the International Dark Sky Association, covering an area of nearly 1500 square kilometres, Northumberland is the largest dark sky park and reserve in all of Europe. An area protected and preserved from light and other pollutants, it is the clearest window to all the spectacular mysteries of the galaxies.
The best time of the year to enjoy Dark Skies is the autumn and winter months. Walkmill Caravan & Camping, Warkworth offers the perfect opportunity for you to relax and enjoy stargazing.

Northumberland really is a star-gazer’s heaven at any time of the year; you can view the passing comets and shooting stars in the summer months and view deep sky objects like the far away galaxies in the winter months.

Hilary Baxter

Our pitch was perfect, plenty of space for our 10 night stay. We saw herons,buzzards and sparrow hawks. We heard the owls at night and the stars were very clear. The amenities were clean and rarely crowded. It was nice to have fresh milk, meat and a homemade cake if we fancied from their honesty box shop 😊. We would definitely visit again.

One of my favourite campsites:clean and quiet. A gorgeous site with long grass and huge trees. Enjoyed watching the bats and barn owl in the evening. Good facilities as well, hot water, can charge phones and fridge.
