Stars and Planets Observatory

2 Aug 2022

Stars and Planets Observatory at Cheviot Holiday Cottages…

As our cottages occupy the most amazing location here at Ingram, actually right inside the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, we have built an observatory in the grounds.

The observatory dome houses a fixed mount Go to Pro telescope and Celestron C9.25 optical tube, a sophisticated piece of equipment designed for use by guests who possess a knowledge of how to align and operate a telescope.


Use of the observatory is complimentary.

For guests without experience of how to set up and align we  provide contact details of a local astronomer who can do a tour of the night sky and who you pay direct for his time.
