Can’t wait to come back!
Amazing stay and absolutely worth the drive! We were lucky enough to stay on a very clear night and I’ve never seen that many stars. There is a lot of attention to detail in the house design and complementary items. From a delicious breakfast to apps for star gazing, it was perfect. And the outdoor space was incredible (and so many sheep)! Loved it and would absolutely be back for a longer stay.

paradise below the stars (listen to the stars)
Skyscape is the most amazing place i've ever stayed!!! you may think that because it is so isolated you'll have to be spartan!! wrong! the glass house offers the same facilities and confort you'll find at a five stars hotel. At the same time Bridget and the family make you feel cozy and at home. They have thought of everything, you'll be pampered! Definitely, I'll be back!

WOW! Eine tolle Erfahrung!
Die Fotos lügen wirklich nicht. Es ist ein absoluter Traum! Die Besitzer sind unglaublich nett und zuvorkommend. Das Häuschen befindet sich ca. 3 km von ihnen zu Hause entfernt (hat aber ein Telefon für Notfälle) und einwandfreies Wifi (wie macht er das nur in der Natur?). Keine Menschenseele lebt an diesem Ort. Dafür konnten wir wilde Hasen und Vögel vom Bett aus beobachten. Einfach traumhaft. Der Sternenhimmel ist unglaublich schön und der Sonnenaufgang noch schöner. Es stehen sogar zwei tolle Bikes zur freien Benutzung, sowie Wegempfehlungen zur Verfügung. Der Kühlschrank ist mit allen frischen Zutaten für ein gelungenes Frühstück gefüllt. In jedem Detail liegt so viel Liebe. Wir werden diesen Ort für immer in unserem Herzen behalten.
