When the night is dark but bright with stars, it can take your breath away. Escaping to a secluded spot, with no light pollution, the stars go on forever and ever and it is just mesmerising.
A weekend away to the countryside to relax, is the perfect time to step outside after the sun sets and gaze up into the shimmering, starry sky.
Now, we have the chance for you do just that!
Competition time! We have teamed up with Sawday’s and Chapman Bags to give you the chance to win the most fabulous prize! A two night break to stargaze to your hearts content in Northumberland National Park and a luxury hamper from P&A and Chapman Bags worth over £600. More information about the prize and how to enter can be found below.
So in the theme of stargazing, we thought we’d put together a few top tips with the help of the National Trust. The full article, very adorably aimed at kids, can be found here, but we’ve picked a few that we think are the most interesting and helpful…
- To view the most spectacular stars, it’s best to head out before the moon is full.
- Try and get out and star spot a few different times throughout the year for seasonal constellations.
- Take provisions! A blanket to keep warm (if you win the competition, you’ll get our Herringbone throw in the hamper, how perfect is that!) a few nibbles to keep you going and a flask of warm tea, coffee or mulled wine at this time of perhaps!
Enter now to win all of this… A weekend break for two, and dinner, in the Northumberland National Park at The Pheasant Inn. A cosy and traditional inn, located in the very middle of the gorgeous National Park. Serving an acclaimed Sunday roast and with open log fires burning, this charming accommodation will be the ideal place to wrap up warm after a full day of walking around Kielder Water and exploring the National Park to gazing up at the stars of an evening.
A hamper full of £300 worth of Plum & Ashby treats, including our luxurious Advent Candle and a variety of products from our bath and body collection. And an olive green holdall and wash bag from Chapman Bags! I mean, what more could you want!?
