The Moon- A different kind of view

A different kind of view. The Night sky!

On this day in 1969. We landed on the moon!

We did indeed, with ‘one small step’ earth made history on the 20th of July. Letting our minds wander to what can be seen in the expanse of space. 

With all our parks located in stunning locations which hold breathtaking views, there is one view that can easily be missed.

The one above us. The Night Sky!

The sky is such a beautiful sight, with spectacular light shows, glimpses of planets passing by, the expanse of twinkling stars and of course the moon itself. You will notice something new every time you simply look up.

A holiday with a difference: Stargazing!

So how about a Lodge or static caravan that would be perfect for a stargazing holiday? Set up a telescope, sit back, relax and take in all the stunning views the cosmos has to offer.

With all our parks situated in areas with minimal to no light pollution with in the countryside and with constant effort to keep light pollution to minimal as is possible. Seeing the stars is easy.

From the comfort of your decking or sat lakeside watching the reflections of the milky way go by. In these warm nights it would be perfect to holiday with a difference.

Out of this world Reductions!

Prestige Maple external, Heron Lakes

Across our parks we have a range of holiday homes which would be perfect for all a stargazers holiday needs.

2017 Prestige Maple show home NOW £149,950. Located on the exclusive trout lake at Heron lakes. The sky here seems never ending, with uninterrupted views in every direction, this lodge would be perfect to spot a planet or two.

Stargazing Top tips:

  1. Makes sure the moon full in a cloudless sky, so check the moon phases before you pick a spot or set up camp on your decked area.
  2. Bring a compass, makes constellations easier to spot! To cheat a little, there are lots of apps that can help you find a constellation
  3. Remember your camera as you will want to document the beauty of the night sky.
  4. Stargaze at all times of the year, the sky is constantly changing. Having your holiday lodge or static will make that a lot easier.

For those who are beginners at stargazing! The easiest star to find is Polaris or the north star. Heres How!

1. Find the Ursa Major (the plough or big dipper), you cant miss it, it looks like a saucepan.

2. Then follows its tail (or handle) parallel to the star and you will find Ursa Minor (little bear or little dipper) and there it will be.

Tada, you’ll know its the Polaris as its the brightest star in the collection.

Does this sound like the perfect Holiday for you?

Here’s what’s happening on our doorstep this June here at Heron Lakes

June already! How the year is flying! Now the sun has shown its face, Here’s what’s happening on our doorstep this June here at Heron Lakes!

With so much happening this summer, there is a lot to choose from. Here at Coastline Leisure we have put together a little guide of what to do this June in the home of our Park, Heron Lakes.

Wanting to stay away from the coast? East Yorkshire has so much to offer. Try the beautiful and historic village of Beverley only 10 minutes away. Another option not much further, only 11 miles from Heron Lakes is the City of Culture, Hull.

A great experience for art, food and culture alike.

Feeling Hungry?

Zebedee’s Yard street food night is a must for the foodies out there. Classic burgers, Greek food, Vietnamese food and more are

all found in the one location with live music by local bands and bars of all types thrown in. Held on the 7th of June from 4pm. Its a great way to end a day exploring the city.

To do your part for Local business’s on your visit. Humber bridge farmers market and Beverley’s historic Saturday market are a must visit. Both markets offer a great selection of local produce including fruit, vegetables and a wide range of local meat as well as amazing vendors from Indian Food to coffee to pork pies and pastry goods. I would recommend the Curries they areparticularly tasty!

These two markets wouldn’t be complete with just produce, no they go one further by having a great mix of local businesses selling items such as honey, flowers, vintage and everything in between. A great way to stock up on ingredients for the week a head or even to grab something for a relaxing morning brunch in the sun.

Beverley market is held every Saturday 8pm till 4pm and the Humber Bridge Farmers Market will be the 3rd of June 9am till 1pm.

Buying a local piece of art or a souvenir?

Beverley and Hull are great for market showcasing Local arts and craft. With the City of Culture came a flourish of art and local talent as artist, crafters and makers being given funding to start up business there is so much choice. From Prints to Ceramics to fabric crafts.

In Beverley on the 2nd of June you will find a craft and artisan market at the Flemingate centre. For the Hull area, Humber street Market is brilliant for unique items. Full of artisanal stalls from soaps and candles, Prints, paper craft and more. Alongside the usual Vintage, record and a selection of craft beers and street food. Third Sunday of every month, 17th June.
