The Piggery Fire

It’s time to light the fire and snuggle up together in one of our cottages or retreats.

Make the most of North Yorkshire’s Dark Skies. We have binoculars for our guests to use, so with the lack of light pollution in the North Yorkshire Moors  you can glimpse the upcoming meteor showers and gaze at the stars.


About 90% of British people have never seen the Milky Way as they live under light-polluted skies, but here on the coast it shimmers overhead on autumn evenings looking like a river of light. From a town or city you’ll be lucky to spot more than a handful of stars, but from our darkest spots you can spy up to 2,000 at any one time.

With the right conditions, you may even be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights; the spectacular Aurora Borealis is often captured along the Yorkshire coast! Find out what else you can see in the North York Moors.

So go on what are you waiting for ?
