Astrofarm Questions & Answers

How much does Astronomy equipment hire cost?

There is no extra charge for the astronomy centre. Use of the centre and equipment is included in your accommodation price. See here for details of equipment and resources.

What is the minimum number of nights I can book for?

You can book a bed for 2 to 10 nights. Please note our deals for 7 nights for best value here.

Are other meals available or do we need to go out?

A 2 course Dinner with wine is available every evening. All evening meals are a one menu dinner at our table and we can provide a vegetarian option. We cannot cater for special diets or personal requests and we cannot sell alcohol. There are takeaways and a supermarket in town if you wish to buy your own food, snacks and drinks. We provide fridges, freezer, microwave and toaster for your own food preparation, lunches and drinks.

Can I bring my own astronomy kit?

Yes you can bring your own equipment and use it on its own or with our equipment.

What do I need to bring?

You only need to bring clothes, pyjamas, phone &/or ipad, medications and ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. We will supply everything else from towels to toiletries, hats and scarves and extra fleeces.

Can I reserve a room for my visit?

All accommodation must be booked with a 50% deposit, paid for at the time of booking through the website or by email. Unfortunately due to limited beds and high demand we cannot reserve individual beds without a deposit.

How can I pay without using PayPal?

We prefer to use Paypal for our payments but understand that this does not suit everybody. For details of alternative methods of payment, please email Sue at

Can I bring my children?

We are very clear about the answer to this question! Astrofarm is an adult only, child free site and accommodation is unsuitable for children under 18 years. Our equipment and observatories are valuable and fragile and small children and the sleeping habits of astronomers do not mix well!

Is there car parking?

Yes, we have a large, flat field and gravelled drive with plenty of room for cars and motorhomes. We also have a lockable garage for motorbikes and bikes for added security and protection.

Can we come in our camper van?

Yes, we have space for a couple of campervans. Please contact us directly by email at
