AstroAdventures, established in 2005, is situated in glorious North Devon, right on the Devon & Cornwall border. Within easy reach of coastal resorts such as Bude, this is a marvellous holiday destination. We offer you the chance to combine your holiday with astronomy.
To cater for your interests in astronomy we have a large 20" (50cm) Dobsonian telescope and a dedicated imaging observatory with a 10" (25cm) telescope for you to use under some of the darkest skies in England.
Experience all the wonders of the night sky. The Milky Way, galaxies, nebulae and the planets. With unobstructed southern horizons and the absence of light pollution and all can be seen at their best.
Enjoy comfortable and private self catering family accommodation in a peaceful rural location. We have two timber lodges set in attractive grounds with an outdoor swimming pool for use in the summer months. Update!! Our pool is now heated by an air source heat pump from mid July until the end of August and is very much warmer than previously!
The Devon countryside with its beautiful beaches & national parks plus local attractions, such as the Tamar Lakes, are easily accessible. This area known as Ruby Country is ideal for family holidays. We are also a great venue for out of season short breaks. See this map for our location.
