A perfect spot for stargazing

This village (pronounced Stone-Hoff) was built in 1957 to house Forestry Commission workers. The neat rows of houses sit among beautiful trees and the crystal clear Warksburn at the edge of the forest. Renowned for dark, starry skies and tranquillity, it’s the perfect spot for some stargazing.

Stonehaugh is also a designated Dark Sky Discovery Site perfect for viewing the dark skies over the Northumberland National Park. There are plenty of walking and cycling paths too.
