The Old Vicarage
Bondgate, Helmsley, York, North Yorkshire
The North York Moors became a National Park in 1952 and is one of 15 such protected landscapes in the UK. Within its bounds lies a landscape of great diversity and sudden dramatic contrasts. The park offers some of the darkest skies in the country with large areas of unpolluted night sky. You might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. North York Moors also offers a stargazing module as part of their education program.
