Dark skies are one of the many qualities of Dorset Forest Garden and contribute to the sense of tranquillity and remoteness. On a clear night the low levels of light pollution make Dorset one of the best places in the country for stargazing. We are particularly fortunate being in a vast closed valley with not a hamlet in site.

Star gazing

If you have a telescope you may wish to bring it with you. Don’t worry if you don’t we provide binoculars and advice on Apps. We particularly recommend downloading SkyView which is an excellent tool. Simply point your device at the sky and it gives you details on what you are looking at.

Do share your discoveries with us through our Guest book. We do love to know what you have seen!
